COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, dry and spicy trappist ale. The product of a secondary fermentation lasting 5 weeks. This is a complex ale with a fruity aroma and a nice nuanced hop scent. It is soft and creamy in the mouth, with a bitter touch carried by the fruity aroma. An exceptional ale, with a great deal of finesse and elegance, and with a splendid long after taste.

Bottle. Orange, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of yeast, must, grains, spices, dried fruits, candy, honey, alcohol. Taste with about the same aromas, great balance between sweet, spicy, bitter and dry. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, with a strong carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, spicy, fruity and alcohol warming. Great! One of the best Tripels Iíve ever had, totally worth the ratings! Perfectly balanced and although the alcohol is noticeable it still is very quaffable.

martijnniehof (15) - ISLE OF MAN - AUG 24, 2014
Heerlijk bier. De verfijnde en uitgebalanceerde smaak en het bouquet van fruitsmaken laten zich het best omschrijven met een dichtregel van Hiëronymus van Alphen: 'Jantje zag eens pruimen hangen, o! als eieren zo groot'

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2014 Dit is voor mij de cocaÔne onder de bieren. Kick in the head. Niets meer, niets minder. Wel meer voor wat guurder weer. Mooie fles en volvette kruidige smaak.

Excellent Complex Trappist Ale, fruity aroma with hints of a grainy bread, poured a golden colour with a large white head lasted the whole drink hugging the glass, spicy fruity flavour with a lasting bitter aftertaste

Botella de 33 cl de el c. Ingles tomada en agosto de 1996 con fecha de cons pref para 01-06-1997. de las primeras belgas de compra, toda una sorpresa de sabores maltosos con cierto dulzor ligeros tonos afrutados y de especias para aquellos comienzos. Cuerpo medio con 9 vol que se notan en todo momento. Tomada varias veces mas, merece la pena darle otra oportunidad en cualquier momento. Bastante buena.

Dit is echt zoals een tripel hoort te zijn, een bier met een goede, uitgesproken smaak

Slightly hazy yellow/golden. Lots of spice (coriander?) with some pepper (seeds of paradise?). Light bodied. Dry finish. Great example of style.

Sjohnh (152) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Itís taken me a while to get into tripels - my loss, I think. This is really good - cloudy amber with a good white head. Medium bodied and creamy. Not much aroma, and the initial taste is of spices mingling with the alcohol. Then peaches, golden syrup, pepper and more spice, with moderate bitter finish. Excellent.

ljthiessen (363) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is fresh baked white bread with hints of fruits and spices. Flavour is dry with a spicy bitterness, bready notes, soft citrus. Drier, spicier and less yeasty than most tripels. A top-notch Tripel and something a little different.
