Nov. 2005 - This was highly enjoyable. Poured with beautiful head (not huge but pretty) that quickly diminished to a layer of bubbles which hung around the entire experience. I liked moving it around and watching the bubbles cling to the glass. The nose on this is yeasty/grassy. Mouthfeel was carbonated, light and crips. The flavor was sweet and fruity with a nice peppery spiciness with a little hop bite on the backend. I need to have Chimay, Maredsous and this side by side. What fun!

one of my faviorite beers, abby ale perfection, its not heady, instead a champagne-esque carbination, fruity overtones, and a sneaky, non-overly acholic high gravity

Cloudy damp straw. Little to no head. Spicy coriander-orange nose. Tangy citrusy mouthfeel with tiny bubbles sizzling on the tongue. Explodes with a robust fruitiness which lingers. Will try again.

Poured a cloudy copper color with a white head. Has superb hints of what a abbey tripel should be. Carbonation is a little to much, but was refreshing. Very good.

750, corked and caged. Silkscreened green bottle, unlike the one pictured to the left--certainly in the running for the most attractive, mood-setting beer label in production today. Hazy dark straw color, bordering on medium amber, with a PITA towering thick sudsy platinum blonde head. Gorgeous spicy and lemony nose. Absolutely puts you in the mood for a complex Belgian before you even pick up the glass. Medium body, tingly, almost (but not quite) sharp carb. Lots of lemon, hay, grass, spice, and floral notes. Unfortunately, this bottle burdens them with an oxidation note, but even *with* a hint of aluminum, it’s a 4.0 beer. Delectable.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 Was well worth it! Went to the Maproom and was it recommended by the bartender, said if i liked Delirum then I should try this one. So freakin incredible, has so many good flavors! This is my new favorite (when I do get a chance to get it, otherwise Delirium rules). Try it!

This is a very pleasant trippel. It has honey throughout the look, smell, taste and, finish but it doesn’t go overboard. Nice beer.
