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.

It’s just o.k. Not as good as most of the tripels out there. It didn’t do much for me. Cheers !!!!!

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2006 Golden/yellow colour with a light white head that rises and falls quickly. Runs smoothly on the tongue, this beer gives the impression to be thick and liquorous. Sweet (honey?) and spices (pepper) aromas, but leaves a somehow strong alcohol taste. Drink it along spareribs or eventually chicken tandori.

Cartoonkhaki (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2005
Slightly hazy golden yellow with large white head that falls quick and leaves a nice lace on the top and sides of the glass. Aroma has a mustiness to it honey fruity light black cherry. Syrupy palate very sweet. Alcoholic hints that are more noticable then most I have had but don’t take away from the flavour and enjoyment of this beer.

yellow pour. strong alcohol smell and taste. i didnt enjoy this at all, and among tripels this would be the lowest one ive ever had. victory golden monkey is way better. westmalle’s dubbel is outstanding, this is not. i couldnt even finish a 750

This doesn’t hide the alcohol very well at all. It has the tripel characteristices, but what makes something trappist? Nice, of course, but many better Belgians out there.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2005
Cloudy orange-amber with an average foamy head and fair amount of unfiltered particles. Yeasty and floral aroma. When sipped, hides the alcohol very well. Comes through in the finish with less dainty swigs though. Aftertaste is a bit perfumy.

BrockLanders (774) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2005
One of my favorite tripels....the first I ever had in The Netherlands. Nice cloudy orangeish pour...big fluffy white head. Spicy aroma, yeasty, coriander, orange zest. The spicy coriander and yeast are all over the flavor with a nice alcohol kick. Give me some more. Nice earthy dry finish goes well. A hint of pepper is there too. I can always drink this top-notch ale.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2007 Bottle poured a slightly clouded sparkling golden ale into my trappist chalace. Modest fluffy cap and wonderful lacing. Lively effervescence. The nose is greeted with a musty-spicey-honey-apricot aroma..alcohol well hidden here. Mouth feel is peppery from the carbonation. Flavor is not overly complex with the dominant sweet brewer’s sugar mingling with the caramel malts and yeast to give a sweet spiced cider tone, the hops are there but sit in the background providing a tartness reminiscent of sour apple..short dry alcoholic finish where the alcohol becomes very apparent. Not my cup of tea....not very drinkable and too sharp to be savored slowly. I echo Oakes sentiment: " what the hell is so special about this?"
