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.

Habanero (2712) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2006 One of my my favorite tripels. Pours with a medium white head that is mostly lasting. Deep golden and cloudy colour. Wonderfull aroma of yeast, hops, alcohol and fruit. The flavour contains elements of yeast, caramel and citrus.The finish is sweet/ bitter with an alcohol touch.

DerWeg (1514) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Holy Re-Rate, Batman. Big, sweet floral hoppy and complex aroma, worth it for the smell alone. This was a fresh sample and, er, I went back for a case! the taste and feel just glides over me lazily showing off a caleidescopic complexity of warm spiciness, bready yeast, dry pale frut, and a little citric bite, all words that are helpless to explain caleidescopic complexity really. So sod it all. Itís just really good! Drink slightly cool, for heavens sake donít keep it in the fridge. That ruined the one I had at the bar. <P> Old ratng Hop-bitter taste, lacking balance and integration, however patiently I warmed & swirled the glass. Alcoholic-dry palate. Not awful beer but for me thereís just better. 6/4/6/3/12 = 3.1

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Bottle. Hazy gold body with a thick foamy head. Aroma-citric zest, dust, very light spice. Taste-high CO2, lavender, chamomille, black pepper, bitter backend. Very, very clean. A very good representation of a style I donít really dig.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Hazy and straw-colored. Bubbly white head that disappeared except for lacing around the glass. Earthy smells. Yeast, banana, citrus, spices. Heavy, carbonated mouthfeel. Bitter finish and slightly more alcoholic than it should be. Still, a wonderful brew.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2005
750 bottle from Colorado Springs. Pours a lush amber with a head that takes quite a while to settle but once it does, it leaves abundant lacing. Aroma is very citrusy, almost like a mixture of orange juice and mango. Flavor is, as advertised, rather spicy. Hints of coriander, grapefruit, orange, and a bit of grape are noticeable. Finish is dry, but pleasing. Palate is watery but full and rounding. One of my favorite Trappist ales by far.

TChrome (1422) - Bedford, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Pours a lovely golden color with the expected massive whipped egg whites retained head. Aroma is hoppy, yeasty, estery, and also has notes of cobwebs that reminds me of a good saison. Flavor is yeasty, spicy and finishes bone dry. This is a quality drinking experience.

33cl bottle. pours a hazy golden with a nice white head. Yeasty fruity aroma. Flavor is dominated by spicy fruit, with a sharp (but not bad) alchol kick. Finishes dry and bitter. Leaves a great feeling in the mouth, but I was hoping for something a little more complex.

Pours with large head, lots of carbonation. Head dissipates, but not really quickly, it is hanging around a while for me. Lots of suspended particles in this beer make it very hazy looking. Definately has some major yeasty/malty and spicy flavors. Yes, a bit of citrus too, perhaps lemon? Can definately tell there is an alcoholic bite in this beer. Itís not bad, but it definately lets you know what kind of beer you are dealing with. Bitter bite for the finish. Iím going to need to try another one of these at some point. :-)

An attractive trade dress and unique (fake) corked and caged seal welcomes the Belgian Triple lover. This ale (in 750 ml bottle) pours a brilliant, hazy light amber bodied ale with ample, tight white and quickly dissipating head. There is little lacing. The nose is light-roasted malt, citrus, and bread yeast. Thereís a touch of alcohol in the nose, too, as the ale warms. Highly drinkable and dry from start to finish. The light malt sweetness quickly yields to orange citrus, ginger and clove flavors in the mid-palate. A swift and smooth finish is belies the relatively high alcohol content of this ale. Very good.
