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.

A fine pick for my rating #500. Only a small pop on the cork. Poured lightly hazy orange with a small sudsy white head. The aroma is very earthy with lots of sharp spice. It is drier than most tripels and has some dry vineous aspects. Medium / full body with a good amount of carbonation. Starts with a slick sweetness that is quickly taken over by a peppery spice, yeast and some barnyard aspects. The finish has a sharp spicy side that comes in. The finish starts off slightly astringent, but mellows quickly and brings in some spicy hops. Further down the bottle when the yeast starts pouring into the glass the taste gets smoother and gains some citrus taste. Excellent world class beer.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Pours bright golden with a medium sized white foamy head. Aroma of apples, tart cherries, sweet fruity yeasty, and bubble gum. Taste is candied fruits and cotton candy. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied and slightly sticky with livley carbonation. Lots of fruity zing and yeasty bite. Quite enjoyable, if a bit on the heavy side.

Slightly murky yellow body with characteristically thick off white head. Smells malty, citrusy, and a bit spicy. Tastes citrusy, sweet, somewhat piney. Very tasty. Medium-to-full bodied. Not my favorite tripel, but a very good one anyway.

flemmingwillum (1098) - Nysted, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2010 The aroma is marked by flowery hops and a good amount of yeast. Aroma is very appealing, but unfortunately a little indistinct. The flavor is again marked by the yeast, and a sweet though surprisingly malty taste with a good balance between sweetness and alcohol. The flowery hops are obvious as in a botanic garden, and the quite bitter finish subdues the alcohol; by that it gives no impression of a 9,5% ABV. All in all a really nice beer.
