COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden hued ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with subtle suggestions of banana and honey surfacing from its deep and complex palate. The Tripel's finish is remarkably long and soothing.

Golden cloudy color with large head that stays. Sweet fruity flavor that has a nice hoppy spicey taste. Sweeter than other tripel's I have had.Nicely balanced. Finishes dry and long with a little alcohol feel in the mouth. Great american tripel.

Batch 33: Hot damn, Timdanchanta is 21! He secured this one up in Illinois a couple of weeks ago for his first "legal" beer. So anyway, poured a pure golden color with a long-lasting thick white head. Flavor was fruity, with a little bit of sourness thrown in there - the complexity is admirable. A terrific beer, and a very happy b-day to my good friend Tim.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2003
Batch 33: Cloudy appearence with just a tad bit of sourness. I could problably taste more of the flavor if I did not have a Macanudo beforehand. An honorable 1st beer for my 21st.

BBB63 (5964) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Batch #33: Hazy tangerine hue with big fluffy head and outstanding lacing. Aroma hints of large yeast(sourdough bread); big and fruity(passion fruit, apricot, ripe pear, blueberry, banana); spices (clove and corriander), and vanilla. Malty taste at the start followed by a twangy yeast and then a massive spicy finish. Very once in a while I detect a sour fruity undertone, but next gulp, it's gone again. Surprising dry and crisp for a large tripel. Medium to full-bodied, it has a lively mouthfeel and a bit alcoholic feel. Wow, a unique take on the style, doesn't suffer by becoming overly sweet, in fact it's almost overly spicy. One damn nice American version of the classic style. Thanks to BierBauch for the trade.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2003
Medium honey orange with medium light creamy head. Very faint floral and yeast aroma. Mouth filling medium light body. Soft floral honey and tropical fruity sweet and lighter bitter flavours. I was a bit disappointed in this one as I found it kinda bland for an Abbey tripel

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Slightly hazy peach color with a thick whitish head. Aroma of fruity tastiness (light pineapple) and bready malts with a slight twang. Sweet maltiness with fruity flavors. Sugary and lightly hoppy with a subtle spiciness. What I expect from a trippel. Moderate mouthfeel and soft but steady carbonation. Nice dry finish. Alcohol not evident.

CapFlu (4476) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2003
(75o ml bottle) Batch 40. Golden body with dissipating white head. Citrus and perfume nose. Strong malt, vanilla and slight hops. Finishes mellow and marshy...

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Batch 35. Hazy golden color. Soapy white head that left good lacing. Enticing smells of apricots and peaches, candy sugar, banana and vanilla. Taste is best described as a combination of the smell, apricots, peaches and bananas drizzled with vanilla and sprinkled with candy sugar. Yet this beer somehow manages not to be overly sweet. The 9% ABV is extraordinarily well hidden. One of the best American Belgian triples. Top Notch.
