The king of the abbey beers. It is amber-gold and pours with a deep head and original aroma, delivering a complex, full bodied flavour. Pure enjoyment! Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Temp: 8-10C)

gilvanblight (821) - Windsor, Ontario, - JUN 2, 2012
Very bubbly golden pour with just a touch of yellow. Lots of bubbly head that lingered. A complex nose. Fruits, grassy, citrus, herbs. Very pleasing mouth. A few waves of flavour. Bubbly and fizzy especially on the roof of the mouth. Slightly sweet especially at first. A mix of various hops flavour. Sweet and herby at first, then a touch bitter and citrusy with a rising sweetness in the finish. Really enjoying this. My only complaint is the carbonation, its a touch too bubbly for my tastes. By a touch I mean a touch, this is way up there with my top beers.

Gangstergafje (489) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2016
The beer has a rather simple look. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. The beer has a tiny cloudiness in it. The beer pours a rather small layer of rough white foam, of which the bulk collapses quickly. Almost nothing is left on top of the beer. The smell of the beer is nice. The first thing that Ive noticed is a nice banana aroma. This gives the beer a nice sweetness. There is also a nice bittersweet almond aroma, of alcohol. I also smell a touch of licorice and a little sour touch of wild yeast. The smell is nice, but it isnt very special. There are better beers. The taste is nice. It also has a sweet fruity banana touch to it. I also taste a hint of roasted barley and licorice, which are only very mild touches. There is a strong alcohol flavor in the beer. The finish contains a little sour touch that reminds of wild yeast. The flavor of the beer is nice, but again my extremely special. Just good. The palate of the beer is also good. The bubbles could have been a bit larger though, to give the palate a little more kick.

jjsint (1958) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2016
Bottle from the Royal Standard, Cambridge. Light to mid-gold, extremely clear. Not so much obvious carbonation. Y sat and slight must in the aroma, with candy sugar and a surprising but enticing whiff of sulphur. The sulphur is present in the taste as well and does a wonderful job of cutting the sweetness and balancing the drink nicely. Some pronounced hop bitterness in the finish also challenges the sugary taste. Not your average Tripel but certainly an enjoyable drink.

mariuspoenari (703) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2016
33cl bottle. Hazy orange pour with a tall but short-lived white head. Smells of Belgian yeast, honey, caramel, elderflowers and that oxidation smell common to most Belgian ales. The taste follows the same notes, bitter-sweet and quite enjoyable.

Vili (244) - FINLAND - FEB 25, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear golden pour with thick, frothy, white head, some lacing. Aromas of toast, barnyard and wet leaves. Taste is sweet, though balanced and bitter, with distinct sidenote of alcohol. Warm palate, low carbonation. Aftertaste is malty and warm alcohol. Surprisingly fresh and drinkable.
