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.

All of the citrus, spice, banana and tropical fruit that you find in a trippel, but with a lot more hop character. Finish is rather bitter and even tart, making this trippel a bit more refreshing than others such as Allagash, but less luscious as well.

Huge head over a golden body. The bubbles are a little too much for me, but it is right where a Belgian Strong should be.

Golden straw color, gian head (I couldn’t fit a 12 oz bottle into a 22 oz glass without waiting to pour the last few ounces). Slightly spicy nose, citrus taste with a little sourness but not too much. Body was medium to thin. Not much of an aftertaste at all. I could drink many of these without noticing, until I tried to stand up I guess. This does not taste like 7.5%ABV, but then again most Belgian Strongs don’t.

Golden pour with a huge creamy head that was conical at one point.Floral nose with a little spice and citrus.Light on the tongue with an almost champagne like body. Very drinkable brew.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2004 Re-rate: Bottled 2 years old. Much more spicy and balanced compared to the fresh sample i took. Good!

Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2002
Golden color with tangerine hues shining through. Luxurious head with tenacity bonds to the glass forming a meniscus shape. Great lace work. Overly ripe fruit smell with perfume aromas and hops merging. Citrus peeking through. Spritz and champagne characteristics on the tongue. Gentle malt flavors give in to a subtle dryness. Very faint copper flavor is unobtrusive. A touch of alcohol subsides unveiling a long hop finish. Very smooth, yet smoother as it oxidizes and warms.

Excellent Abbey pale ale, golden in color, very nice soft lacy head, very clean & crisp taste, fruity undertones in the flavors, lots of floral aromas, a bit of a spicy & hoppy kick in the flavors & aftertaste, overall a very excellent abbey ale

jaymobrown (1676) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2002
Clear light yellow color with an average head. Full of large floaties. Musky pears, apples, and alcohol nose. Rather clean and light in overall taste. Small fizzy carbonation.
