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.

Excellent looking ale. Opaque buff in color with a rocky bright white head. Assertive aroma of minerals, yeast, alcohol, pear. I get a little cherry also. Extremely well balanced and elegant in flavor profile. It starts with a delicate fruit basket, moves to some barnyard and grainy flavors and finishes crisp and yeasty with some orange sherbert. Very satisfying.

A small, persistent white head sits above the very cloudy golden body. Tons of floaties. Aroma is bananas, honey, bubblegum (I think), and lots of alcohol. Sweet with a nice dry finish and awesome mouthfeel. Very solid tripel.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 Poured golden from the 11.2 bottle. Nice foamy head, but it does not look like anything great. Smelled crisp and fruity, with a yeast hint. Nice sweet dry malt with a good fizzy. It makes the roof of my mouth tingle. There is a sour hint as well, warming nicely with a still tingling mouthfeel. This is an easy drink for a 9.5%. Very good. Try this. 7-25-05 re-rate. The head was huge and steady. Nose was malt, sour, and yeast. Wow, big dry mouth. Lots of dark fruits and a strong port taste. This is better, I have aged this one since 12/04 and, 7 months later is ven better. Damn Good.

Bottle. Hazy amber with a nice white head. Yeasty aroma with a little sweet malt/sugar. Aroma not too strong. Smooth mouthfeel. Warming alcohol presence. Yeast and banana esters - a light sweetness and a bit of orange. Itís nice to have another triple that isnít cloyingly sweet, but this beer is just wellput together - nothing really stands out.

I like this one much more than the dubble although I think the dubble looks better. So this one had a quickly diminishing creamy white head on a coppery orange pour. Great fruity aroma with a little alcohol carried on a yeasty waft. Alcohol is well masked in the flavor however a nice balance of sweet and bitter spice.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2010 11.2 oz bottle - pours deep yellow color with big fluffy white head, hazy. Aroma has notes of wildflower honey, coriander, toasted oak, lychee fruit. Flavor has notes of toasted apples, coriander, continental malts, wet stone, honey. Finish is faintly sweet. Always a great triple.

This the best triple to available. In itís class this trappist tastes the best. Thatís probably why this is the most sold triple in Belgium.
