Gold with a small head. A bit of sediment. Yeasty aroma. Rich, warming taste with spice and a bit of dryness. Slightly too much fizz, I thought, but otherwise this is great beer.

light body, oily feel, lively, long finish, very plentiful head whose look reminds you of too much dish soap in too little water but who’s taste is very enjoyable. The taste is very well-balanced. The look is most impressive with the sediment/yeast floating all around. One of the best pale ales I’ve ever had

Damn smooth, my friends. The smoky citrus and gentle whisper of flowers in this brew make it fun AND drinkable. Monks do indeed brew the best beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 33cl (BB 11/2006)
Golden, a bit hazy color, cloudy white head. Soapy, lemony nose. Basicly good lemony, fruity, acidy, hoppy, yeasty, what ever good triple needs to be, but metallic tinge is annoying. I wonder how big a bit aged bottle would be.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep Gold/Light Amber colored with a foamy beige head. Lively carbonation.
Fruit, caramel, a touch musty (in a good way). Sweet, rich, toffee with wildflower hops. Like a fleece pullover on a Winter morn’ ....nice, soft and comfortable, warming. Must get to Belgium!

Nice bottle, but sorry that they not are making paper beer-labels on their bottles.
The smell is actually quite nice, but the color is to bright compared with the taste.
The taste is nice and long and not to agressive.
Very nice beer.
