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.

Hazy orange.yellow body with big white head. Fruity, spicy aroma — coriander, banana, orange. The flavor is fruity as well though the alcohol and hops stick with the flavor throughout. Plum, orange and bitter hops. Peppery, warming finish from the alcohol. Ample carbonation and a moderate finish.

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2006
This is as good as they get. A true Tripel straight from Belgium! It is more light and fruity than I would have expected but so remarkably easy to drink. Appearance: Pours an orange yellow peach color. Smell: This beer was very aromatic; filling the nose with zesty lemon, toasty malty and other sweet fruits. Taste: Soft and fruity on the palate but with a nice mix of lively spices. Very balanced very smooth, lemony hops and sweet malts just sing. Mouthfeel: Light weight but full and creamy in the mouth. Drinkability: I have yet to have a better experience with any Tripel. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Bottle: in my mind, this is the definitive tripel, with all of the requisite characteristics: fruity and spicy nose, light-to-medium body, strong alcohol taste nicely balanced by the yeast and hop flavors, and a clean finish.

KAME (160) - California, USA - AUG 23, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Pours a cloudy amber color, with a full off-white head and good lacing. A thin head lasts until the last sip. Aroma is a complex mixture of smoked citrus and yeast. Flavor is moderately bitter from beginning to end, with a long finish comprised of light hops and alcohol. Very fruity and complex. Mouthfeel is very dry, and definitely requires some lip smacking to take it all in. A very good tripel.

I can appreciate this is an excellent example of an Abbey Tripel but difficult to enjoy in a fun kind of way. More like the enjoyment of making it through an intricately complex, detailed, well-written novel. Very sweet and spicy but lands on the palate like a ballerina. Definitely worth tasting. Cheers!
