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.

Pours a light amber, amazing aroma, citrus oranges then moves onto the flavours in the mouth, bready and quite hoppy with the slightest hint of sourness...finishes so long, very hoppy but watch out for the alcohol

Noy my usual style but I must concede the quality of this. The head is breathtaking. As it warms the aroma opens up and the depth is inspriring. Not a quaffer, but a quality drop.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 12, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2009 Bottled 33cl. A top notch tripel with a wonderful hop and yeast profile and hints of melon, wood, white bread and spices. Good bitterness. Complex, deeply pleasant and beautiful. Additional comment: Dry, hoppy, complex and absoluetely fantastic.

BigDaddyBlues (46) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2007
I hate that my first review is not a flattering one. I was disappointed. This was a tasty ale but there was nothing special about it. I expect more out of Trappist ales.

ChainGangGuy (4770) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Appearance: Pale straw-colored body topped with a profuse, foamy white head. Smell: The aroma is marked by citrus, green apples tartness, and candy sugar. Slight hints of the alcohol content peek through in the nose. Taste: All at once, it’s sweet, citrusy, and spicy. Very much like a dry white wine. Wraps up with a rather pronounced alcohol finish full of yeasty notes. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body that is slightly watery with a fizzy cabonation. Drinkability: A rather dispiriting experience. Sadly, this is one of my least favorite of the trappist beers.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 5, 2007
330 mL bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of honey, flowery bouquet and white wine character. Bright sticky palate. Slightly tangy malty taste with a clean finish. I wish more of the aspects evident in the aroma showed through in the taste, but they didn’t.
