Delightfully fruit-taste, with the powerful but not spirit-like alcohol providing the balance. The amount of taste in this beer is impressive, even for a trappist.

Golden colour with nice white head, yeasty, strong, a bit bitter, more hopped than your average abbeys, a bit spicy. Dry as well...

Bottle. This was the first Trappist I ever tasted, and after this Iím surprised I tried another. The beer pours a watery gold color with a prominent, frothy white head. Aroma is largely yeast with slight spice characteristics included. Taste is yeasty up front with spice on the end of the taste. Overall I found this beer too watery, which I later learned is not a hallmark of the tripel style.

Gold color with medium diminishing head and some lacing. All around a good beer, but doesnít come close to the flavor of other trappist ales.

750ml bottle - I love Belgian Ales but didnít love this one. A flat dry finish without the aroma and flavor I crave. The 2nd glass was better than the 1st at least.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Ok so this started out pouring a golden yellow into my glass with a thick white head but it went away quickly. Aroma is yeast spice (tons of nutmeg for some reason), and alcohol. Now maybe I started this thing too cold but on the first few sips the stuff was nothing but a spicy yeast and alcohol bomb and it was really just not that good. As it warmed the alcohol died down a bit but still not that well and more flavors were released such as a note of lemon zest. Overall, I thought the alcohol was hidden horribly in this beer which is surprising to me because normally high alcohol content does not bother me but for some reason this one did. Oh well, first time that has happened to me, I guess you canít like them all. I am beginning to notice however that triples in general I donít care for that much. Which is again confusing because I love quads and doubles. Hmmm weird.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 Many nuts, pecan. Cooling, it has led, full of flavors. For me, a perfect Belgian combination between a strong ale and a tripel. Perfect........................................... nozes, pec„. Refrescante, leve, cheia de sabores. Pra mim, uma perfeita combinaÁ„o entre uma strong ale belga e uma tripel.

I found this little gem in a state run liquor store in Utah. $3.99. Not bad. The ABV hit me pretty hard since I have been MIA in the beer drinking world for a little while. Very nice flavors of spice and yeast like aftertaste. Enjoyable.
