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.

Lovely gold, with only a slight haze. The white head lasts well. There is an AMAZING aroma of malt & spice. Not as full bodied as I expected, but still a big mouthful, fantastic flavour, I found it a touch sweet, but very well balanced. A refreshing acidity comes through on the l-o-n-g finish. A fine ale that is dangerously easy to drink for a 9.5%er.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy, hazy lemon brown coloring. 1" head, lacy and hugs the glass. Crisp, tart, not-too-carbonated. Alcohol taste noticeable. Nice light release. Hint of sour apple.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Pours a pale yellow with a medium sized white head. Aroma has lots of yeast and some mild spices. Taste is smooth, slightly bitter, with a dry finish. Good but not remarkable.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 Bottle 12 oz. Opaque yellow-amber. Yeast, sweet fruit, and spice aroma with a little alcohol and vinegar. Taste is similar to aroma but with more spice and some bitterness at the end.

The flavor was not at all what i was expecting. Typically, i like beer with less of that hop bite.

dmac (5287) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Poured a hazy golden color with a huge frothy white head that one would expect from a Belgium. Aroma was yeasty. This beer had a full mouth feel but was very drinkable. Good but not great.

Rotorhead87 (119) - Temple, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Bottle. Light tan color with a medium, mostly diminishing head. Spicy and slightly sweet. I was very underwhlemed with this beer. It was good, but nothing like what I was expecting. The overwhelming thought while drinking this was "this reminds of MGD." I have had a Dubbel before and it was excellent, so maybe I was just expecting too much.

nearbeer (4716) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2007 Bottle, Date 11/07/07, maybe 4 years old? Huge head doesn’t fit into glass. Cloudy apple cider color. Nice fruit of the vine + toffee malt aroma. Toffee apple and peppery citrus taste. Creamy palate. Smooth and dry alcohol finish leaves a very nice, large and long-lasting warm spot on my insides.
