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.

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.

In 750 mL. Hazy blonde with an extra thick bubbly white head. Yeasty lemony aroma with light orange peels. Sweet alcohol gin, with good sustained hoppiness. Creamy and complex mouthfeel. Pleasing, as I remembered from last drinkng this nectar. Thanks to Dumdum, via Capflu.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2006 Hazy yellow with tight lasting head. Nose is fruity and spicy with some sweetness. Sweet, fruity and malty flavour, with some powerful bitterness in the end. Powerful carbonation. A wonderfully balanced beer.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 19, 2004
In the bottle. A delightfully large frothy long-lasting head, but not of high-end Belgian gargantuan proportions. Beer is a cloudy yellow color. First aroma is of yeasty bread dough, followed by a perfume. Slight citrus aroma at mid point. A medium palate with a strong alcohol burn. Average carbonation level and a good bitter aftertaste. Much better than the dubbel. Cheers!

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 Nice beer. The orange taste is very apparent. The smell is very impressive. Similar to the Dubbel, but more fruity. The idea of a beer with an orange taste turned me off at first. But it ended up working really well. The alcohol content is high, but well hidden. I had this again and was even more impressed. Tastes better warmer. Very good. I call it a tie as far as comparing this with the Dubbel.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2004
A hazy orange beer with a huge white head. The aroma is very spicy with notes of yeast, coriander, and orange peel. The flavor is very sweet and very spicy again with notes of the yeast, coriander, orange peel as well as the alcohol - the end is a little dry and woody. But the alcohol is not as present in the sample Iím rating since it is more than 2 years old as it is in a fresh bottle - I like the more subtle alcohol presence in the aged version best.

Pours cloudy amber with a huge white head that quickly dissapates. Alcohol is dominant aroma, with fruits on the side. Flavor: mostly alcohol., very yeasty and bready with fruits of banana. Dry finish and creamy mouthfeel. Yummy!

DYCSoccer17 (3283) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Bottle. Sweet, fruity, bananas in the nose with a spicy pepperiness. Much more faint and subtle aroma than the dubbel. Hazy blonde/orange color with a huge frothy white head. Yeasty and spicy to start with coriander and notes of honey along with the banana flavors from the yeast. Nice body. Enjoyable.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Orange and hazy. Has a quick big head, but dissipates to a leave a decent lace. Great aroma ... yeasty, citrus, banana, floral hops and alcohol. Flavor is powerful with alcohol, bitterness and little more alcohol. Itís dry and not sweet, and thereís a little citrus in there. Overall, itís rather unbalanced as the alcohol and bitterness take away from the other aspects

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy orange body with a large white head. Aroma of heavy yeast, leather, cheese, and mustiness. Flavors of fruit, strong yeast, and alcohol.
