COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ochre coloured top fermented Abbey Beer with an abv of 6.7%. The use of Gatinais barley combined with carefully selected hops creates a perfectly balanced, relatively light tasting beer with a fruity malty taste.

Svesse (6715) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2007
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 18 Feb 2007) Yellowish amber colour with foamy white head. Spicy, slightly sourish nose with notes of unripe peaches and citrus peel. Fruity, spicy taste with notes of peaches and green apples. Rather sweet and rather chemical. Not bad but it has become more "macro" (artficial and mainstream) during the recent years.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Bottle. Pours to a nice golden straw colored body with a creamy dense white head. The aroma had apparent Saaz style hops and what I’d call a nice fruity silage. The flavor was also similar to the aroma. Nice balance and even though it was somewhat strange, I really liked it. A nice tart mouthfeel that finished crisp.

berkshirejohn (4904) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2007
50cl can. Amber with a loose white head, lightly carbonated; aroma of apple, banana and honey; slightly sour in the mouth with lots of fruit and some biscuity yeast; dry and refreshing finish.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2007
33cl bottle. Amber color with a disappearing off-white head. Aroma of biscuit/cookie malt, with some apple, orange, yeast and spice. Off-sweet biscuity malts with a soft and rounded fruitiness---orange, banana, pear. Mild hop finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Clearly not among the best "tripels" but pretty decent for an imported Belgian six-pack offering.

Jerre (2772) - Waregem, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2007
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear blonde colour with a light head. The aroma is yeasty and light lemo. The taste is sweet. A touch creamy and dry yeasty. In the beginning of Grimberg it was much better.

ekstedt (5708) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2007
Bottle. Clear golden with a medium thick, creamy head. Flavour malty with hints of orange and banana. Not really hoppy but with a pleasant bitterness. A little thin and boring to carry 6.7 abv.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2007
Bottle. Pale golden with an average white head. Heavy malt aroma, spicy with some citrus fruits. Malty flavour, slightly sour.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2007
Bottle (330ml). Thanks to biegaman for this one. Poured clear, vaguely amber gold with a small frothy white head that managed to leave a minimal honeycomb of white lacing behind. Smells like a blonde ale - generic candy malt, a little fruit and yeast, a whisper of light grassy herbal hops. Taste is also pretty light, the hops are slightly more pungent and up-front, a little alcohol (not tripel levels) presence, slightly tart fruit - apricot maybe, yeasty finish, very quick off the tongue. Watery and almost disturbingly slick mouthfeel, hardly any life to it, somewhat characterless - as a blonde it would be okay; as a tripel it’s a failure.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 22, 2007
Bottle. Golden colour with a medium head. Fruity, sweet aroma with yeast. Flavour is sweet, malty, fruity, slight touch of citrus. Bit sweet yeasty finish.
