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 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.

80skid (65) - New York, USA - OCT 15, 2005
Very robust aroma as it pours a thick, light-looking brew along with a medium, white head that lasts for a little bit. Taste is a bit spicy if you will. A bit harsh for an ale and also a bit thicker than normal. Alcohol is very prounounced. Not too bad but definitely could do better.

To begin, I must say that my low rating is due to the fact that I did not enjoy the style, but this is clearly a quality beer. The golden color and long-lasting head is close to perfect. However, I think the problem lies with the fact that the alcohol flavour, especially as an aftertaste, slightly overpowers the other flavours. This certainly wouldnít be my first choice for a trappist ale.

Bottle: Poured a golden color with a lasting white head. A cloudy gold. had a citrus aroma with a hint of yeast. Malty sweet flavor. Bitter finish with a lasting aftertaste of yeast. Great 9.5.....

Bottle: overall not bad. Dark hazy brown with lots of floaties. Small tan head dissipating quickly. Nose of sweet bread, strong malty and slight candy essence. Flavors are a little to subtle but balanced nicely. Overall a decent trappist.
