11 oz bottle. Citrus fruity aromas off this hazy golden nicely beer. White fluffy head is leaving nice lacing too. More citrus fruit on the flavor with wonderful pepper and vanilla notes. Slightly bitter but not too much. Sweeter finish than I had expected. Very good

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) pours light hazy amber. Fruity, sweet and a bit sugary aroma with some yeast and syrupy malt. Small notes of hops and maybe some almond paste. Fruity, well carbonated flavour with syrupy and bready malt. Medium sweet. Full, round and rather smooth mouthfeel. Medium to full body. Malty finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank in a trappist glass. Hazy amber poor with a thin off white head. Nice amount of sediments at the bottom as weel. Aromas of unripenned bananas, prunes, creamy (lactose), peaches and cotton candy. Reminds me also of caramel fudge with lots of spices. Creamy mouthfeel with added flavors of caramel, cirtous, amazing hops were used to make this beer. Pefect balance amd nicely carbonated. Nice sweet start then it fades to a nice bitter aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great aroma. Complex and just slightly bitter. Highly carbonated with slight sweetness. Very light on the tongue. It’s almost like it is dancing on it, then it leaves.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy beige with mild but persistent white head. Aroma is thick with malt and fruitiness. Medium body taste with a hint of bitter citrus that is smoothed by the malt. Finishes equally smooth and wet. Initially I thought the heavy malt aroma would overshadow the citrus in the taste, but the palate was suprisingly well balanced. I’m not rushing out to buy another, but it’s not a shameful brew.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2012 Bottle, 33 cl. Hazy golden, medium creamy white head. Wonderfulö fruity aroma with some almond paste and subtle phenolics. No alcohol. Medium bodied, silky smooth, with soft carbonation. Semi dry with medium bitterness. Perhaps not a school-book triple, but simply wonderful.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2007 Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle into a tulip glass, hazy orange golden with a fluffy white head and a lot of floaters. The aroma was of yeast, fruit, citrus and apples. The taste was very sweet up front with notes of honey and butterscotch, which gave way to spices and a slight bitterness as it warmed. There is a small alcohol bite and a very creamy mouthfeel. Simply wonderful.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice brownish gold color. The head is nice and adds to the beers semi-creamy texture. I found the flavor to be lacking. It is a great beer, but the flavor surprises me because it does not stand out. I love the Abt 12 because the flavors are rich. The beer, as I continue to drink it, proves to be creamier and creamier. I like this beer, but I believe it goes down almost too smooth without leaving much of a flavor behind.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A sweet and delicate aroma of sugar and spice with background full hearted yeast. Liquid is a hazed and nearly opaque golden orange color with minimum amount of foam. The drink is a medium toned tripel with definite yeast presence and dash of spice. Has slight metallic aftertatsewith an almost dry finish. An abbey tripel worth revisiting in the future.
