4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml - Best before 12/04/09 - Aroma of funky yeast (almost like a saison), light juicy fruit and spices. Pours transparent gold with a huge white fluffy head and great lacing over cascading bubbles. Flavor is more doughy yeast than funky from the aroma. Still fruity and spicy. Palate is creamy and effervescent with no alcohol bite whatsoever. A fantastic beer all the way around. My non-craft beer drinking in-laws loved it.

Poured into a Duvel glass. Pours a nice straw/amber color with a huge frothy head that breaks down after a couple of minutes. Leaves some thin lacing that also disappears after a short time. Aroma is earthy. Flavor is interesting with malt and sweet fruity flavors. Some very earthy flavors with plenty of spice...kind of peppery actually. Nice mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation. Nice way to bring in spring...very refreshing. New to the style...I enjoyed it.

Draft @ Eulogy: Awesome beer! Great on Tap! Poured a dirty blond color with a nice amount of head. The aroma was very sweet with slight apples. The flavor was yeasty, malty, complex but extremely well balanced. Overall, one of the best beers Iíve ever had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very clear gold (slightly hazy towards the end) with a tall, frothy white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus. Wonderfully smooth beer. No one taste overwhelms, itís almost like a lightly caramelized piece of fruit. Sweet and malty. The body is very fizzy and gives a very refreshing sensation.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dumped it inot a tulip glass since it was all that was available and thie is not a beer to drink out of the bottle. There is thick foamy head with a cloudy orange color and some suspended particulate matter in the liquid. The nose is full of honey, oats, and roasted barley. You can really distinguish the belgin yeast on the nose as well. the initial flavor is full of orange zest on top of honey and biter hops and spice. The booze is well hidden initially but not in the finish. The finish is full of lemon zest and pure alcohol.

Bottle. Light, straw colored, with a light haze, huge head. Aroma is very complex, sweet, malt touch of spice. Flavor is also fairly complex, malty, light fruitiness with hints of honey and spice. Touch of yeastiness. Smooth and silky, refreshing.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 33cl bottle. Clear orange-gold with a creamy, lasting head. solid aroma of banana, yeast, spice, and alcohol. The flavor is spicy and yeasty with a lot of alcohol, which makes it pretty dry. Iím digging the dryness; makes it very drinkable. Medium body and smooth carbonation. This is very easy and nice to drink, Tripel isnít my favorite abbey style, but this is pretty tasty. (3.7) rerate: Draught at The Trappist. Huge fruity pineapple any yeast aroma. Fruity yet dry flavor. This really stood out this time. Great beer.
