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 golden yellow with a moderate white head. Citrus and spice in both the aroma and palate. A solid triple, but I expected a bit more.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2005
Very fragrant, fresh and citrussy. Cloudy peach brew with a thick "shaving cream" head. The alcohol is noticeable, but so are an array of spice flavours as well. Very bubbly, very warming and nicely intoxicating. Not earth-shattering, but a very nice brew to begin New Year’s Eve with.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Pours slightly hazy and golden/orangey, thich white head. Looks great even with the floaters. Aroma of citrus peel. Flavor is very sweet, more citrus peel, ginger, pine. Lots of carbonation, like a soda. This just didn’t do a lot for me.

barleybro57 (3) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2005 does not count
Poured out a great white head, nice yellow color. I’m used to darker ales, so maybe I’m a little biased - but I thought lacking in flavor and complexity.

750 ml bottle Pours cloudy golden yellow with a good white head, mostly lasting and good lacing. Aroma is of purfume, spruce, pine and soft malts. Dry smooth texture. Taste has a smooth light acidic with a good aftertaste.

It’s just o.k. Not as good as most of the tripels out there. It didn’t do much for me. Cheers !!!!!

Belial (71) - BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2006 Golden/yellow colour with a light white head that rises and falls quickly. Runs smoothly on the tongue, this beer gives the impression to be thick and liquorous. Sweet (honey?) and spices (pepper) aromas, but leaves a somehow strong alcohol taste. Drink it along spareribs or eventually chicken tandori.

Cartoonkhaki (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2005
Slightly hazy golden yellow with large white head that falls quick and leaves a nice lace on the top and sides of the glass. Aroma has a mustiness to it honey fruity light black cherry. Syrupy palate very sweet. Alcoholic hints that are more noticable then most I have had but don’t take away from the flavour and enjoyment of this beer.
