COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

SPicey aroma, a bit of a skunk essence. inital taste was like sour garbage and the finish was a spicey hop boquet. Very well balanced. This is the brew that i drank last, sending me over the edge. i spent the rest of the morning blowing chunks of undigested onion out of my nose.

This one sells very quickly in my neck of the woods, and it should be no surprise. A very well-balanced brew: sweet, sour, and a nice pinch of alcohol make this one a fine brew.

This beer pours with a huge head. Very malty, with a fruity aroma, and nicely balanced. Darn good stuff.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2005
12 oz bottle, with an “enjoy before date” of 11/05. Pours with a large, white foamy head that dissipates slowly. Lite gold and bubbly. Minimal haze. The aroma was malty, spicy (though difficult to put my finger on), and I’d also say a bit sour. The flavor was lightly malty and sweet with a clove like spiciness. This initial flavor moves to slightly metallic then yeasty Belgian at the finish.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2005
Bottled. Pours a very pale blonde with a nice white head (in its own glass). The aroma is spicy peppery and a little floral. The taste is clean and spicy. A typical tripel; very tasty and inviting in all ways.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2005
Draft: Light spice with a clean malty aroma behind it. Clear gold with a large lasting white head. Sweet malts with a mild dry finish. Spicy aftertaste. Alcohol well disguised. Medium bodied. Ok but nothing special.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 Muy buena cerveza belga de abadía. Tostada casi negra, gasificación justa y gusto fuerte pero sin pasarse.

Cloudy blonde color with a thin white head. Great aroma and flavor of earthy yeast with spices and citrus. Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Very good stuff, I like the combination of earthy yeast and spices.

This beer flowed...thats the best descriptor I can think of at this moment in time...it flowed from start to finish. It pours a light to medium yellow, clear color with a massive white soapy head which does dissipate but leaves a creamy layer throughout the entirety of the beer...and i can truly appreciate that. The lacing on this was also very nice. The aroma is light and sweet with heavy emphasis on the yeast and fruity esters.... citrus, lemon, perhaps a hint of barnyardiness and grass..but basic and earthy. The flavor is light bodied with subtle fruity esters and tickling carbonation silkily dancing their way across your tongue. Fruity nectarines lighty coat up front, followed by yeasty and malty sweetness and lemony tartness and dryness in the finish. No alcohol presence, but trust me, it sneaks up on your toward the bottom of your glass. Surprisingly light mouthfeel, yet not dissappointing. Yeasty bliss!
