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.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2011 Bottle. Cloudy yellow colour. Big, semistable head. Alcoholic fruity aroma. Very peppery flavour. Distinct bitterness. Flavour is a lot drier than the aroma suggests.

Bottle, 9.5%. 4 years past BB date. The aroma is a little papery, but also mildly malty. Dark amber colour with small black pieces floating in it. Small creamy white head. The flavour is a good mixture of distinct alcohol notes and a good bitterness. A little spicy sweetness in the finish. Well-rounded and holds up fine after four years.

pours hazy and golden opaque. foamy head, very frizzy at the beginning, crisp and light, but the flavors evolve as it warms and becomes smoother. has a tangy yeasty and flowery taste...slight clove or cinnamon? taste. great ale

Very nice beer, nice glazy golden colour. Very nice aroma, and a very nice taste. Sour in the beginning, sweet in the end. Dry in the end.

A much less quality beer than its little brother the dubbel. A[pearance is nice with a frothy off white head on a golden body. Aroma is heavily of yeast and flowery hops. The initial taste is failry sweet and the finish bitter and a little harsh. Lots of better tripples out there but drinkable none the less.

Cloudy orange pour, huge head, initial aroma was yeasty bread dough and malt,the first taste has a tart sourness immediately evident, then a nice satisfying sweetness settles on the tongue.Has sort of a rough feel on the palate. Alcohol makes its presence known, not quite as sweet as other tripels, and noticably drys out at the end. I like the Dubble better

Bottle...wonderfully hazy orangish pour with a generous white fluffy head. Yeastly citrus nose, with some spice. Grapefruit start with a hint of banana and clove. Nicely peppery with some spiciness also. Great bite. A nice tripel.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2004
High white head that disappears slowly, on top of an orange-gold body. Very nice aroma, pretty spicy. Flavour is spicy too, with a bitter aftertaste. A blonde with an attitude!

footy (345) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Bottled. 11.2 oz. Yellow/Orange color. with exuberant head. Fruity aroma. Full mouthfeel. Spicy but a little too peppery with an astrigent bitter taste which I do not find appealing. Still good for its style. Multiple tastings.

Fruity, spicey, and some alcohol. A very enjoyable beer. Nothing to go absolutly nuts over, but still a great solid beer.

Light gold, cloudy, looks like a wheat beer. Strongly flavoured nose with herbs and nettles. Powerful and sweet palate but seem a bit alcohol driven and fraction disjointed. Finishes with a lick of cinamon.
