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.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Great big white foamy head causes multiple pours to get enough of the golden yellow liquid in the glass. Aroma of citrus spice and yeast. Flavor contains pear/apple and citrus with light spices. Light bodied and nicely balanced, this is a decent and complex enough Tripel to have again, but there are others just as good or better that are not as expensive.

jerkadilly74 (155) - mooresville, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2004
An excellent trappist ale. Poured an enormous head which didn't disappear without a fight. Hints of fruit and malt in the aroma. Filled my palate with hops. Also made my cheeks feel very warm and fuzzy. Great beer.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2004
Pours a hazy golden body with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit and lots of hops. Fruit, banana and bitter hops in the flavor. Quite sparkling, though still mild and deliciuos.

A nice tripel. Good golden color with a large, thick head. Nice aroma, floral and lemony. Nice smooth taste. Kind of creamy. Some hops, which was quite enjoyable. Dry finish...but a really good brew!

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Nice golden color with a large frothy white head. Mild geuzue aroma with some apple and lemon. Somewhat sweet and spicy flavor with clove, lemon, and a light bitter hops finish. Medium carbonation, light and tingly.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2004
Had this one after a couple of other types of beer. It still stood out from the crowd, pleasing my slightly tired taste buds nicely. Big creamy head tops a rich deep golden beer. Lots of variety on the nose - fruit for sure but it seemed to change from moment to moment. Complex flavour too with a slight hoppiness to the smooth finish. Solid.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Extremely carbonated. Very light yellow color. Looks a lot like lemon merangue pie!!! Smells like hoppy cologne. Alcohol very present. Smooth, full-bodied feel with a lemony sweet taste followed up with a strong yeast taste. A little false advertising with the PAle Ale label being an abbey tripel. Good brew!

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2005 Re-rate Sampled on draft and surprised by how much I enjoyed it - not common for Belgians to be better on tap.
Poured with an overwhelming head from 750ml bottle. Almost a floral aroma. This leads to an expectation is that it would be sweeter than it is. Regardless, there is a lot of subtlety in this brew. Certainly yeasty, and carbonated like champagne. Dry, thin finish.
