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.

A beautiful golden color, hazy with a sticky white head. Sweet flavors of honey and very light spice. Very mild hops notes at the end. Can't wait to get more.

Bath #34. Sweet honey, herbal, meadow like (flowers), nice and pleasant. Cloudy amber, orangey, white impressive head. Interesting taste. Sweet but soft, light velvety taste with notes of nuts with nice hops. Very nice beer.

Light golden orange color. Very smooth, sweet with vanilla flavor, good spices. Soothing and warm. This is a real treat, almost a dessert. Couldn't wait to finish the bottle.

Wow, this is really good. Sweet but not cloying. Very yeasty aroma. It does taste like passion fruit, but I'd have never pinpointed it without the commercial description. Unusual spicy flavors. Complex and intriguing, one of the best beers I've had.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2003
Aroma of malt, plums, yeast, and a little hop spiciness. Pours a fairly clear orange-straw with a white foamy head. A lot of Belgian-style ales have impressive aromas, but then the flavor doesn't live up to expectations - not this one. It has a robust flavor of malt and light fruit, I get slight notes of vanilla, and then a spicy, kind of salty finish. Soft mouthfeel with an even finish. Quite a nice tripel, better than some Trappist examples.

21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2003
A cloudy deep yellow possibly could be considered orange, short bus color. Gives moderate head. Bitter white grapefuit flavor. Very yeasty and chalky, a really earth like feel to it. Solid.

Orange color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and slightly sweet. A medium bodied Abbey Tripel. Slightly yeasty, and somewhat tart. Touch of fruit, lemon and oranges, bananas and peaches. Smooth taste. Slight sweetness. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.
