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.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2005
Bottle: Clear to hazy gold with a big creamy head. Plenty of medicine, band-aid, and cloves in the initial aroma. Some cellar malts (dusty, musty barley) with a spicy hop element. Banana, cloves, and hot spicey flavours with a nice toffee-like sweetness and pointed hops. Very nice. Quite hot but also very hearty. Loses a couple of points for having slightly harsh bitterness. Excellent.

Tripple the burn. Tripple the buzz. can i get a hell yea? First half was heavy on the alchy and cirtrus. Mellowed out into a fluffy mouthfull with banana and sweet clove. Snowfall throughout the glass. A damned winter-wonderland of yeast in whats supposed to be spring. for fecks sake.

pivnizub (8797) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 2, 2005
Bottle: Straw coloured with a big fluffy long-lasting head; impressive fruity nose (banana); even thogh not low carbonated, very smooth in the mouth; thie initial orangey fruitiness, accompanied by hints of candy, switches over to soft but clear hoppiness. Very "warm" and complex brew.

hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Super nice brew! Poured cloudy yellow, with a thick rocky head that lasted and laced! Carbonated with bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass for a very long time. Aroma is yeasty with some leather, barnyard action going on in there. This one gets better by the sip. Flavor is strong and to the point. The carbonation makes a great play on the tongue with the flavor (good wheaty, hoppy, and yeasty). It’s definitely worth the money, and I am terrible about justifying taste for cost. I will Westmalle again!

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 31, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2005 Bright yellow with LOTS of sediment and a bright white frothy head. Lemony, citrus. Hints of alcohol in the taste and aroma. The main flavors are orange, some lemon and alcohol with a slight bite in the end.

Highly accessible tripel which definitely went against my expectations for a Trappist ale. Pours a deep gold with a fizzy head. The aroma is spicy and fruity, and the flavor is clean and dry, with a spice bite followed by a more mellow and fruity finish. Tastes like a very good, clean, strong ale--you’d have no idea the abv is so high.
