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.

I HAD HEARD ALOT ABOUT THIS AND WAS NEVER A BIG BELGIUM FAN SO THIS TO ME WAS JUST A REGULAR BEER THAT WAS HIGH IN ALCOHOL AND CITRUS FLAVOR.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Bottle shared with my friend Brian. Pours hazy golden with a nice retentive white head. Nice yeasty and perfumy aroma, with notes of clove and citrus. Very nice mouthfeel, not too fizzy or rich. Flavor wheat malt, clove, pear, and banana with the right amount of sweetness. Slightly dry, but spicy finish with well hidden alcohol. I think this is very well balanced. A little tamer than some triples, but that is what I liked about this one.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 21, 2006
11.6 oz bottle-Pours a cloudy golden color w/a small white head & good lacing. Full, sweet, floral aroma The dry flavor hits you right up front, doesn’t have the complex flavor levels one would usually associate w/a quility belgian. Spicy & dry mostly, some hops. Very average. Kind of a thin dry finish. You can drink it, but I wouldn’t seek it out. Disapointing.

OlMalteserHead (21) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2006
From a bottle, it pours with a airey head, smells like lemony peaches, tastes like peppered wheat infused with a basket of citrus fruit, and it’s rather good.

Hazy, honeyed orange with a huge white head that leaves gorgeous tiered lacing. Aromas are dry, yeasty, and malty, but not terribly expressive. Subtly fruity (peach/berry) as it enters the mouth, but the flavor profile develops and becomes high-toned, somewhat raw, dry but not bitter, finishing with a tannin-like impression and a tiny bit of tartness. Chewing the beer brings out a little spice, mainly pepper. Alcohol is masked, and the mouthfeel is medium. A subtle, dry classic.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2007 33cl bottle. Poured cloudy dark orange/amber with a big off-white frothy head. Aroma of orange yeast bread, more mineraly than spicy and very subtle for a tripel. Flavor of mildly sweet cakey malt with citrus peel and banana notes and a spicy, even peppery finish. Noticeable yeast in the full palate but it also has a fair amount of carbonation. While it seem a little less complex than other Tripels it’s in no way understated.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Golden pour with substantial foamy head and lots of yeast cloudiness. Sweet, malty aroma with some hints of citrus. Rich citrus malt taste that is quite bready and dominated by yeast. A good tripel, but not as smooth as I would have liked out of a top notch trappist brew.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2006
330mL bottle. in a Koningshoeven (AKA La Trappe) trappist glass. Hazy golden color. Aromas of citrus, apples, lemon peel, yeast and lots of goodness. Ever have a beer you knew would blow your mind just by the smell of it! (Sound like a OT-D topic!) Very oily texture. refreshing flavor. Tastes of sweet yeast rolls and bananas. A very good Tripel.
