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.

From a 330mL Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-tinged color of hay with a dissipating white soapy head. Aromas of orange zest instantly drift to my nostrils along with some sweet peach sugars. Lots of orange citrus merengue dusted with a light layer of confectioner’s sugar and a hint of phenolic banana. Light to medium bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. This is quite obviously a big beer, yet the alcohol doesn’t have any overpowering qualities. A bit of orangey sweetness starts out on the palate, but this is quickly replaced by a wave of dry, bitter herbs. Finishes with a musty yeasty spice that lingers with some bready malts in the final smack.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2007 Hazy golden with an ample rocky white head. Good lacing. Aroma of trappist yeast, fruit and spices. Quite complex malty, fruity (citrus ,apple) flavour balanced with hop bitterness. Dry somewhat bitter finish. This tripel has a differnt flavour quality and balance from my favourite Tripel Karmeliet, but is really very good.

Aroma is light, with some light banana malt and a touch of dried fruit, spicy citrus and a touch of minerals. Color is a light golden yellow with a huge, rocky head. Light bready malt flavor with a hint of caramel and touch of alcohol. Finish is nicely balanced both sweet and malty and bitter and dry. Medium body with a dry finish and nice carbonation. Very nice, I’m surprised by this one. Especially when it’s on closeout for $2.50 a bottle!

A good, representative Belgian. Good appearance, bright, hazy gold color with the nice Belgian lace. Traditional tripel mix of wood and alcohol. Nice.

Bottled at home. Very strong but easy to drink ale. I prefer a bit lower percentage of alcohol (like Orval) but this is really perfect beer. Highly recommended.
