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.

willisread (725) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a Duvel glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a medium-sized soapy white head. Clove, banana and apple stand out on the nose with a very nice saison-like aroma that persists throughout. Slightly sticky mothfeel, medium body with lively carbonation. Great complex palate with some sweetness, spiciness and bitterness. Great peppery and bitter finish with the hops noticeable near the finish. A wonderfully complex tripel that is quite like a saison on steroids. Still magnificent after all these years.

Nevalainen (249) - FINLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Hazy golden color with high head. Aroma of banana, pepper, alcohol. Taste is a mixture of sweet, bitter and spicies. Quite well balanced. I don’t taste much alcohol though the taste is strong, which is good.

SkillsFactory (151) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2015
Dorata pallida, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca di media persistenza che lascia il classico merletto di Bruxelles sul bordo del bicchiere. Aroma di chiodi di garofano, pepe, banana matura, leggero lievito belga. Al palato attacca con una nota dolce maltata per poi ripresentare le stesse caratteristiche aromatiche, per poi finire con una bella cosa amara erbacea e con il warming etilico proprio di questo tipo di birra. Retrolfatto di banana matura, lievito , leggeri chiodi di garofano e leggero erbaceo. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

Прекрас& оформле& долго держал, выжидал момента. Однако не пришлос& по вкусу. Обалден& аромат, однако дофига высокая карбони& и какие-то налеты лагера, где бельгий& тело как-то спрятан& на заднем плане.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of citrus. Pours a hazy golden with white head. Taste is light sour. Body is medium, with creamy texture and lively carbonation. Has a slight bitter and spicy finish. A complex brew, the quintessential tripel.

jamaty (1168) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Ambar claro. 3 dedos de espuma muy burbujeante (se oye). Aroma complejo muy especiado y frutal. En boca primero frutal, fuerte a piel de naranja y quizá melocotón, menos, que se pega al paladar, para dejar un final sequísimo, largo y amargo. Muy buena.

mofu666 (5) - - JUN 14, 2015 does not count
Zapach: delikatny, owocowy, bardzo przyjemny miękki zapach Wygląd: piękny lacing, piękna piana, niestety niezbyt apetycznie wyglądające drobinki, piekna świeżo, jasno pomarańczowa barwa Smak: pierwszy kontakt jest zabójczo alkoholowy, by po kilku łykach zmienić się w wyraźny, cholernie bogaty pijalny smak. Długi świetny finisz, pozostawiający w ustach posmak jabłek. Aromat podchodzący aż do nosa jest nieinwazyjny, balansujący na granicy wyczuwalnego alkoholu, czuć że to piwo ma swoje procenty ale na pewno nie aż tyle! Świetna robota

mathieuc (2087) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
Pours a hazy light yellow with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of yellow fruits with floral and peppery alcohol. Taste is of pears, sugar, soft alcohol and moderately bitter. Lightly sweet and far from cloying. Peppery alcohol again but all in a classy manner. Body is medium, carbonation high and mouthfeel sticky and lightly boozy. Overall a fine tripel, this is pretty much a benchmark for the style I guess and extremely enjoyable.
