COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A reddish brown trappist ale, malty and fruit, featuring a 3 week secondary fermentation. This ale has a full, pale yellow head. The bouquet is full of esters and fruitiness. Notes of ripe banana predominate. The taste is fruity and slightly bitter, with a long, dry finish.

Sweet, malty, fruity aroma. hints of molasses. Thick cloudy off white head, that drops off, moderate amount of laing left. Burgundy / plum liker color. Malty, sour taste. somewhat thick but not much actual flavor that i can distinguish. balanced carbonation. Very bland, very boring.

I found this 33cl bottle at Whole Foods tonight as I was looking for something new and I think I may overlooked dubbel styles after tasting this one. It poured well in my 50cl glass (a great find at Crate/Barrel) to form a cheerful oatmeal head, with lingering bubbles beneath. The first taste changed my mind about dubbel style ales as the candy-fruit, coffee, caramel, and hops all exploded at once. I’m sorry I only purchased one bottle as this was just outstandingly smooth with bitter traces reminding me how much I enjoyed it. I found this to be very drinkable and I was wondering, as I always do with great beer in a bottle, what the ale would be like on tap...an exciting idea as I know barrels are available of this one, but not the Triple, in the USA.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle. Dark with a caramel nose. Large off-white head. Caramel with a touch of anise and bread. Lively and warming. Sweet malts with a slight acidic finish. Notes of dark fruits. Nice yeast undertone. Yummy!

I had this beer at L’Autre Oeil. The color is dark brown with a short lasting beige head. It has the taste of fruits like plums but also spices. It does have that sweet bitter taste to it but not to bitter.Very good.

TURDFERGUSON (4046) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Bottle. Pour is dark red and brown with a small white head and very nice lacing that lasts throughout. Lots of yeast sediment at the bottom of the glass. Nose is slightly fruity, yeasty and bready. Flavor is good, but a little more bland than I remember. Creamy, a little bit of dark fruits, with a yeasty sweet finish. A very nice trappist, but just doesnt have as much umph as I remember.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 My goodness this is one bad-ass dubbel. Deep amber with a moderate head, it’s got a big bready aroma. But what really kills is the combo of the lively mouthfeel - vibrant like a nice blond or tripel - with a deep, complex aroma that combines perky fruits like plums with a nice bite from coriander or cloves. Some might dock this beer because it’s just a shade thin for a dubbel, but I actually think that works in its favor.

Very good trappist, ideal for an afternoon in the shade, don’t drink too much though!

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Dark amber in color with a nice malty head. Smells like a fresh loaf of bread. Coffee and cloves with hint of orange zest. Decent beer but its no rochefort (unfortunately)
