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.

Cloudy, yellow-gold body with a huge white head. Fruity aroma with some spice. Taste is slightly fruity with notes of spice and and alcohol. Not generally my favorite style, but an enjoyable beer.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
Orangy blonde with a lot of chunky bits of sediment. Citrusy and had a sharp bitterness Iíve never noticed before, closer to the front of the tongue. Could be all the alcohol. The head makes it look great, but taste-wise I really donít see the big deal. Lemon, yeast, a bit of basic spice (black pepper), but not much else. Overrated and dull.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Pours a golden yellow with a moderate white head. Citrus and spice in both the aroma and palate. A solid triple, but I expected a bit more.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2005
Very fragrant, fresh and citrussy. Cloudy peach brew with a thick "shaving cream" head. The alcohol is noticeable, but so are an array of spice flavours as well. Very bubbly, very warming and nicely intoxicating. Not earth-shattering, but a very nice brew to begin New Yearís Eve with.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Pours slightly hazy and golden/orangey, thich white head. Looks great even with the floaters. Aroma of citrus peel. Flavor is very sweet, more citrus peel, ginger, pine. Lots of carbonation, like a soda. This just didnít do a lot for me.

Poured out a great white head, nice yellow color. Iím used to darker ales, so maybe Iím a little biased - but I thought lacking in flavor and complexity.
