UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Peut-être la meilleure bière du monde. Belle robe, douceur et rondeur avec pourtant un caractère certain... un délice.

Pale cloudy yellow, white foamy long lasting head. Aromas of malts, belgian yeast and some spiciness. Sweet taste, almost no hops.

Moravius (275) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 12, 2014
Flasche (33 cl). - Goldgelb, trüb, viele Hefeteilchen. - Hefig-würzige Nase mit ganz leichter Ananas-Note. - Antrunk breit hefig und leicht würzig (ist das Koriander?). Deutlich kandiszuckersüß, malzig aber mild und irgendwie „flach“, ohne hervortretende Herbe oder Schärfe oder wenigstens ein bißchen pikante Säure. Stark rezent, schaumig. Kaum bitter im Abgang. - Etwas arg mild für ein Tripel und jedenfalls viel zu schwach gehopft. Mir persönlich fehlt die wuchtige, bitter-fruchtige Schwere, die ein gutes Tripel bieten kann.

westler (53) - Stuttgart, GERMANY - APR 11, 2014
Pours a hazy golden colour with tight foam top. Aroma is grainy-malty with some fruite notes. Taste is very rich, mouth-filling with a nice well-balanced spicy bitterness. Medium carbonation and well hidden alcohol. Medium long finish. Highly drinkable. A good summertime abbey beer.

Bottle. Pours cloudy straw color. Nice white heat. Spicy fruity taste. Nose is pear. This is what a tripel should taste like.

Stuedmaster (160) - Vista, California, USA - MAR 24, 2014
From a 750 ml bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a super thick, expanding white creamy head with artistic lacing. Aroma of honey, raisin, lemon, hay, and yeast. Moderately sweet with some sour and medium bitter for a very balanced taste. Nice earthy notes, somewhat nutty, very refreshing and delightful, clean finish. I’m very impressed with this brewery.
