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.

Floral, doughy aroma. Bubbly on the tounge. Spicy and dry, as advertised. I rather enjoy the chapagne and apple flavors. I’m not as familiar with tripels as many ratebeerians, but I enjoyed this one.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours golden, yellow with a large head with excellent lacing. The head is off-white. The beer is a bit frothy and cloudy in appearance. Aromas are of citrus, grapefruit and a certain hint of dust and chalk and some mustiness. The flavor is sweet and slightly sticky. It is veryu complex, I cannot discern a prevalent theme. The palate is very dry with a medium to full body

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 Yes, another wonderful beer from Westmalle. Pours a cloudy golden in the glass with a flowering head. Fruity nose of yeast, bread, orange peel and other citrus accents. A smooth drinker. Creamy mouth-feel. Dry with a pleasant alcohol finish. A wonderful beer though I think I like the Dubbel a little more.

Trev (1984) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2006 Pours a hazy orange-yellow with bubbly white head that fades to a thin but solid cap. Aroma is light and fruity (banana-lemon) with very little hint of alcohol. Contrary to the aroma, the alcohol is very predominante in the flavour. Sweet , boozy, grainy. With lively carbonation.

ebarnes (260) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2006
33cl bottle. Pours foggy amber with a MASSIVE white head that eventually disappates leaving a slight lace on the glass. Aroma is a bit fruity and a bit malty. The alcohol will smack you hard with the first drink but it mellows as it warms. Each drink is better than the previous, finishing with the alcohol still present, but nicely combined with the fruits and spices.

Bu au Vineyards Wine Bar & Bistro (Ottawa) en septembre 2005. http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/ontario/ottawa/viney Goût fort mais pas trop imposante, un peu fruité et épicé. Très bon!

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2006
Peaches and yeast aroma with some must kickin around too. Poured a cloudy yellow with a white head and excellent lace. Full-bodied and smooth in the mouth though not bursting with flavours other than alcohol and fruity malt.

Bouteille-Une dorée un peu trouble. Odeur d’épices, de malte et d’alcool. Mousse blamche dissipante. Goût de malte et de noisette et de fruits.--Bottle-A golden ale a bit cloudly. Odor of spices, malt and alcool. White head fast dissiping. Taste of malt, nuts and fruits.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 6, 2006
Tasted 05/02/2006. 330ml bottle from Leuven, Wellington. Pale orange, hazy, diminishing white head, lacey. Musty yeast aroma hints at apricot and seaweed before revealing a spicey and phenolic kick. Flavour is fresh and fruity, more mustiness, alcoholic, tart through the middle, with a hint of absinthe, a crisp dry finish and a quite strong phenolic astringency and woody, clove and cinnamon lingering after. Mouthfeel is lightweight, without being skinny, and low-medium carbonation. Interesting ale but it doesn’t grab me enough to demand I drink another.
