Drank with Ramenen. Bottle: Bought in Tortula Sao Paulo; full bodied and complex, lacks a bit of deepness usual in an abbey. Alcohol level is nicely balanced.

JonMoore (1858) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2005
Dark golden colour with a large white head. Sweet yeasty, grainy, fruity aroma. Taste is sweet, sugary, light bitter finish. Not too tripel like, but as tripel isn’t my favourite belgian style, I quite like this.

gilvanblight (775) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2006
Slightly reddish orange pour with little head. Slight sweet smell with fruit, maybe apple. Slight alcohol taste. Much higher carbonation then the other DeKoninck I had. The DeKoninck hops taste in all their beers was weaker in this one.

Poured slightly cloudy amber color with nice foamy off-white head. Smells of caramel and a little bit of yeast. Hints of sweetness and yeast with some hoppy bitterness.

Thx! to Kraddel for the bottle. 33 cl. bottle sampled. Presumably 2008 or 2009 Vintage. Clear amber with an off-white head. Nose carries very dominant oxidation notes but this has oxidized very well, honey & caramel notes, flowers, sugar, fruits with light dates. Taste is the same deal with oxidation, faint sherry, honey, caramel, lots of brown & candy sugar, toffee, sweet, flowers, faint floral, biscuit, toast,… Slick but not very heavy oxidized. Didn’t expect anything from this one, I am a bit surprised as to how well this has kept, tripel’s should have the ability to withstand some time. This I assume was a mediocre beer that probably drinks better now than it ever did. Also where is this like distributed? I have never seen this one but there are lots of recent ratings of it up here.
