As I uncaged this baby, there was an explosion, as the cork shot up at the ceiling and almost took off my head. A small gushing ensued...but I took care of it. I poured it into a trappist glass to reveal a perfect golden color with a huge white, frothy head. The head stayed the whole time. The scent was of cloves, malt, strawberries, gum, yeast and spice. A perfect play on the palate with a complex taste and mouthfeel. One of the best tripels I have tasted.

Clear sparkling golden with a fine dense white head. Aroma is very soft malty and powerfull fruity along with spicey wheat. Flavor is broad aswell. First stickey sweet, then turns into a nice mix between fruity sweetness, warming alchohol, nuts and grain. Very complex and balanced.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a foamy, lasting head. Aroma is fruity and sweet with bananas. Flavor is bananas, bubble gum, and a brief spice kick. Very good tripel.

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.
