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.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Poured into a trappist glass from a 330 mL bottle. Aroma was great, featuring a heavy malt nose, caramel, subtle yeast, and a light floral and fruity background. Some spice, banana, and bubble gum tones, and maybe some grassy hops. A beautiful appearance with a cloudy amber-gold color and a big, white, foamy and bubbly head that had good retention. It had a lively, fizzy texture with a spicy and fizzy finish. There was a somewhat drying alcohol finish, and it was initially moderately thin and dry, but became wetter as it settled, and had a fairly full mouthfeel. The taste was sweet and malty, becoming more sour and then somewhat bitter with an alcohol finish; it had notes of citrus, banana, and some yeast and wheat. A great ale, that is sure to please, but hard to justify buying frequently at $5 for a bottle.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2007
750 ml bottle. Pours hazy pale orange. Lively carbonation. Huge rocky near-white head, slowly diminishing . Aroma is dry fruity with spices and some yeasty scents. Taste is complex; fruity (citrus and sour apples) with notes of bready malt-sweetness, piny hops, spice, yeast, alcohol and an almosty astringent acidity in the aftertaste. Smooth and vineous mouthfeel. Dry, spicy and lingering light bitter end. Very nice.

ChazMania (662) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Straw type color, no head at all. Yeasty nose, darn near smelled like a Hefe. Its a little sour and not the sweetness I normally associate with Belgian styles. Looking over other reviews, wondering if I got a bad bottle?

I drink it from bottle and sometimes is excellent and sometimes I am not drinking so much. But is lighter for trippel, but very clean like drinking trappist beers should be. Hops are in it also and it is not sugar beer like much of the American beers.

Bottle. 11.2 FL OZ. Foggy, amber color with champagne-like bubbles and a nice, frothy white head. Spicy, fruity aroma. Medium bodied with an almost airy texture and a dry finish. Flavor is sweet with a fair amount of bitterness and alcohol. Enjoyed the dubbel more, but still an excellent beer.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle. Hazy yellow to orange with a white head. A much more intense fruity aroma compared to Westmalle Dubbel. Some sweet and butter. The alochol is well hidden, maybe too well.... Also a bit dry on the finish. A good belgian tripel. But dont have too many, you have been warned :-)
