Dark yellow nearly orange with a nice fluffy white head. At first the smells scared me, spice, coriander, and oranges...i hate all the above when not done properly. But one sip and I was very amazed. They pulled off a great balance of fruits, spices, and a nice bitter taste too. Fantastic...I think this is a new fav from the trappists.

Hoppy Belgian beer makes me happy, slightly dissapointed when bar advertised having Westy 12 and then said, "no, sorry" or something equivalent in italian, but when you’re settling for this, are you really settling? Pilgrims!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head. Lots of sediment and carbonation. Herbal, dusty, hard fruit, and spiced aroma. More malty sweet than I had expected. Yeasty, citrus peel, and spicy alcohol flavors. Tangy and acidic on the tongue. A proper and delicious tripel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Wine Guys in La Crosse, WI. Pours a hazy orangish-yellow with off-white head that fades quickly. Predominant aroma of citrus and yeast, but balanced out by the malts and hops. Flavor follows the aroma - with only a mild alcohol presence. Clean crisp finish. Worth a try.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2006 Pours light amber -very fizzy. Not as subtle as a chimay blue or brune, announces its strength early on. Slight warmth going down, not a bad flavour but its not really for me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours cloudy yellow with yeast sediments. Fruity aroma, sweet and too alcoholic flavour. Goes down moderately well for a beer of this strength.

11.2 oz bottle. Poured a goldish with a pretty big white head. Had a spicy malty head to start. Had a little resemblance to a whitbeer with coriander. Overall a great belgian. Well balanced and not overly strong spice, malt, or hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dry tripel. Pours gold with a big foamy head. Some cloudiness with yeast that quickly settled. Aroma is yeasty with some spice and mild fruit. The taste is sharp up front with strong malts, then eases into the sweet sugary finish, but ends dry. I’ve never had anything like it before.
