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.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Pours a dark straw gold with a huge fizzy and slightly frothy off-white head. Strong tropical fruit aroma, with a light note of floral hops and alcohol. Flavor has light notes of tropical fruit, a bit of doughy yeast, nice floral bitterness, and a definate hint of the alcohol (very pronounced slightly above cellar temp.). Palate is very effervescent and lightly bitter, very average tripel mouthfeel. Good, but overall on the average side. Not much complexity, but still fairly balanced with the exception of the alcohol being a little too present.

TheKegergator (241) - California, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Pours a dark golden color with a rediculously thick white head that lasted the whole drinking. Lacing was sick. Smell is very fruity, and floural. Taste is very fruitie, in a good way. It really blends well with the alcohol taste this brew has. As it warms the alcohol comes a little more up to the forefront. Very solid brew.

Stefano (1938) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2007
Cloudy, yellow-gold body with a huge white head. Fruity aroma with some spice. Flavor is very sweet, more citrus peel, ginger, pine. Lots of carbonation, like a soda. Overrated and dull.
