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.

DuffMan (7616) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 28, 2006
Cloudy orage-amber with a huge puffy white head with impressive retention. Spicy, fruity and yeasty aromas. Big flavours of banana, sweet spice, bread dough, and sweet caramel candy. Smooth mouthfeel with no notable alcohol other than a pleasent warmth in the finish. An excellent triple.

11.2 oz bottle dated best by 11/07/07. Pours a cloudy gold with a fluffy white head. Fruity, yeasty nose, some brandylike notes. Lively mouthfeel, yeasty flavors, lightly fruity. Some spicy notes. Gets slightly sweeter and more dense as it warms. Nice.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Bottled. Poured slightly cloudy orange with a persistent white head. Aroma is citrus with a little sourness and a spicy yeast character. Smooth and substantial body with a little carbonation. The taste has a notable yeast character with some sourness. Almost tastes salty. Notes of dark fruits. The finish is spicy bitter.

Bottle. Some uncouth Americans--or, maybe, only me--may not take the same familiar comforts from these amazing Belgians that we take from our favorite domestic ales. It’s a different world, brewing under Bonaparte’s artillery. But this tripel, though, is just astonishingly good (many others, too, of course, just musing on culture shock tonight). Beautiful to look at: orange, dense white head. Bread and oranges on the nose. Some spice, fizz, and citrus throughout the palate. There’s a bit of hop there, but just a grace note.

bubbleflubber (1933) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Wonderful pour... it looks thick, hazy golden with chunky floaties. Huge head, with a doughy-sweet nose. Complex flavors here. It starts with a definite sweet character, fills the middle with a bit of astringency, and finishes with a lightly bitter hop and crisp citrus. The finish is medium and peppery. Has a nice, thick(er), slick mouthfeel, and is a very nice representative of the trappist tripel.

Aroma: floral, citrus; appearance: orange, cloudy, white foam; flavor: light-to-medium sweetness, lightly bitter; palate: medium body, oily feel, lively, bitter, long finish. Very well balanced.

jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Poured cloudy golden, with a apicy, fruity aroma. This felt dry and thick on the tongue. The flavor had plenty of spice, some sweet fruit, and filled out with the great trappist yeast taste. An all around enjoyable abbey tripel.

Theis (14266) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottle at DØE get-together. A very perfumed smell and taste, also some yeast in the taste. A bit malty, alcohol and dry hop, but to much yeast and perfume for my tastes. (4/3/5/2/11) --- Re:Rate. Bottle (Old ca. 2000) at DTE - Ratebeer night (06-01-07). Orange - white head. Aroma: Dusty, cardboard, peber, alcohol, spicy, yeast, wierd. (5/3/5/2/11)
