This beer, with high fermentation, has a pale amber colour and a flowery, fruity taste with a harmonious balance between sweet and sour (8% alcohol content). This beer has a thick and vivid froth and strikes by its balanced taste with a delicate bitterness.

My first tripel. Pours a hazy burnt sienna with a big white head that takes a few seconds to dissipate. I am usually a stout man but this impressed me.

Hazy orange with a huge, fluffy white head. Smells of Belgian yeast with a little citrus and another tangy smell that I canít identify. Maltier and sweeter than I expected. Quite spicy; pepper and herbs, maybe thai basil? A little lemongrass. Pretty full mouthfeel, a little heavier than other tripels Iíve had. Leaves a peppery, gingerish burn in the back of the throat. Thereís a lot to like in this beer. I usually prefer a brighter, more cirtusy style tripel, but the spiciness and the texture of this brew keep drawing me back.

Pours deep orange with a big white head that lasts. Very bubbly... Decent Tripel.

Big ass bottle drunk on 5/4. Pale yellow color with huge white head. Smells just like a belgian triple. Yeasty and candy flavors. The flavors almost seem delicate. Gets better as it warms. Dry slight matalic finish.

750ml bottle from the Flying Saucer in San Antonio. A nice tripel but it seemed too carbonated though, which kinda threw me off. Pours a cloudy gold with a fizzy white head. Light on the palate, leaving a bitter aftertaste. Iíd reccomend trying it, but taste it before you buy a bottle.

Pours a light cloudy brown with almost no head. Smells like girl and light hops. Very nice flavor, good malty flavor with leave flavor. Nice hop profile as well. I would most certainly buy this again, reminds me of fall. I canít wait for the fall to drink this then outside with the changing leaves.

bhensonb (12947) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Aroma of yeast, coriander, lemon? and other spice. Finely bubbled golden color with a huge white head. Starts thin to medium. Very smooth, slightly sweet start. Flowery hop. Not bitter. Pepper, spice, but very muted. Something of an apple/pear flavor, but very light. The finish is dryish, and the bitter is very light. This whole thing is subtle and very light. Refreshing and wonderful. Not sicky sweet like so many.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a pale, translucent color with a lot of bubbles and a big foamy white head. Aroma is vanilla, yeasty, fruits, slightly bitter. Taste is smooth, fruity, bitter. This is very good but all of the top tripels are starting to taste the same to me.

Bottle. Cloudy rust orange color. Suprisingly small head and no visible carbonation. Orange, lemon, corriander, and honey aroma - all sweet, to whiff of hops. While the hops were not noticed in the smell, they are apparent to the taste. Spicy at first with a citrus zing, it gives way to a dry ending. With a good array of hops, this is one of the more even (an in my opinion mature) abbey version I have come across. It has less of a hot alcohol feels than other strong Belgians. A nice change, I will look for this standout again.

bottle from Total Wine Ft. Myers - pretty standard triple - malty, yeasty, coriander and other spices - tasty
