Sinds 1295 wordt Augustijn gebrouwen volgens de eewenoude traditie van de paters Augustijnen. Dit authentieke kloosterbier met nagisting op fles, zal u door zijn volle smaak en fraaie kleur keer op keer weten te verrassen.

Huge foamy white head, apple juice coloration. Aroma is of bitter apples, Yeast, fruit, and white wine. I really cannot taste much, and I don't know if this is watered down or what? Slight alcohol notes, dry, slightly fruity... This could pass off as a light beer. Hmm...

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2004
Golden color with the standard thick head. Nose is a sweet clove citrus. Mouthfeel is a slight bitterness at first, but calms down to a reasonable smoothness. The flavor isnt as full or complex on this, but it does make a decent drink, just nothing revolutonary.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - APR 2, 2004
Aroma starts out yeasty but opens up into a nice light citrus/clove scent. Appearance is yellow-orange with a tight frothy head that dissipates at a moderate rate. Spicy clove flavor that gives way to tangy fruit and finishes with noticeably flowery hops. Sweet malt flavor begins to come through only after allowing the head to subside. Overly carbonated at the start, but palate is very nice once the carbonation comes out a bit. Overall a very nice, and very drinkable, tripel.

Cloves, estery banana aroma. Some spices also, nutmeg. Good appearance, hazy, apple cider-like color. Moderate to low carbonation. Slow diminishing head. Crisp. Good with fruit, like apples.

Bottle pours light orange with a large foamy head.   Good carbonation, slick lacing.   A nice lemony & yeasty aroma greets you at the nose.   Definately smells the part.   Tastes of yeast and citrus up front, fading into a somewhat malty finish.   A bit of a musty aftertaste, and slightly sour.   This seems fairly tame for an Abbey Tripel.   Decent mouthfeel, but not enough flavor on the finish.

Dorwart (2431) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Thin head of big bubbles. Not typical of a belgian. Good carbonation though. Spicey and dusty aroma with a hint of oranges. Color is a cloudy golden orange. Flavor is slightly flat and sour. Citrus fruit and spices are present. Only a hint of alcohol. Light in body. Finish is good. Slightly bitter and a little sweetness. An ok "lighter" belgian triple.

This beer pours a beautiful orange with a frothy head that dissipates quite rapidly. Very faint aroma, not sure if I am smelling the beer or something else, but from what I can make out, smells of citrus and yeast. On first drink it was slightly acidic but blossomed into a silky coating of the tongue, nice. Decent taste, slightly bitter finish but still pleasant. I would buy this again.
