Driven by a life of humble contemplation, Trappist Monks have quietly been rolling out barrels of rich, full flavoured ales for centuries. While the old world tradition of Trappist Ales continues to influence brewers around the world, a new world order has been bubbling away with bold aromatic US hops playing the headline act. Melding the old and the new worlds, we have introduced rich, sweet malt tones derived from select Belgian specialty malts and fruity Belgian yeast spiked with the addition of classic candied sugar together with the unmistakeable aromatics of new season US Cascade and Chinook hops. A thought provoking bitterness completes a hybrid ale that is contradictive in style - The Quiet American

mkel07 (5162) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a golden amber colour with some haziness throughout. Level head of foam looks good and the aroma is a mix of spiced fruit and malt. In the mouth this beer is smooth and mellow and makes for an excellent sipping beer on a cool night. Another single batch wonder from Little Creatures.

27-AUG-2012, bottle @Papsø. Golden with off-white head. Tripel...? The fruity stuff is there, some peach and banana but not all that spicy. Finish is hoppy and bitter. High carbonation. Really delicious, I like it.

Strange name, but I guess it describes the beer and is not a literary reference. Bottle, 10C. Clear orangish amber with a large white head that is never less than a coat but doesn’t leave much lacing. First whiff is of very American hops - grapefruit, pine - then oranges, light caramel and dough emerge and after a while you forget how American it smelt at first. That seems to be the point of this beer and it does it very well indeed. Oily body with slightly lower carbonation than I like in a Tripel. Taste is sweet and fruity with plenty of oranges and caramel. Dough is (too) light and cloves and white pepper lighter still. Lingering finish is moderately bitter with spices and citrus. Normal balance for a tripel. Nicely done.
