Pours into the glass in a blaze of thunder & foam. Forgot I had this in the fridge. This is a delicious brew. Complex & enjoyable. I’m getting a hit of spice on the front end, with a rush candy & dried fruit through the middle & a finish that is a washout of brisk carbonation. Awesome.

Great triple, very crisp, flowery and citrus nose and taste. One of my favourites abbey beer. Simple and classic, yet effective.

hangunder (271) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
Nice honey sweet nose, hint of belgian spices and alcohol. Golden yellow, not too hazy, long lasting huge foamy head. Tastes beautiful, honey notes come through in the taste as well upfront, finishes spicy and decently leafy hoppy with some more of the belgian yeast. Alcohol well hidden. Well balanced and comforting to drink. Medium bodied and highly carbonated. Excellent tripel.

Licht troebel gouden bier met mooie schuimkraag. Neus vol met fruitige aroma’s. Mondgevoel is zoet met zurige toets. Lekkere tripel!

superspak (2828) - Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2014
750 ml bottle into signature chalice, best before 11/21/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, orange zest, peach, pineapple, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, honey, candi sugar, bread, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with awesome complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate pale malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, peach, pineapple, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, honey, candi sugar, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, peach, pineapple, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, honey, candi sugar, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible tripel style! All around amazing complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. An extremely delicious offering.

ClaudeB04 (174) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 19, 2014
Pale golden, typical triple head. Fresh, floral nose. Spices, honey yeast,, nice beer, more subtle than a Chimay or a Westmalle for example.

Bottle from the lcbo. Clear golden pour, with a huge white head. Big aroma of tropical fruit and a very forward aroma of yeast. A very bready tripel, with alot of cereals also. A very well done balanced example of the style.
