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.

Clear gold coloured beer. Slightly irregular head. medium stickyness. Aroma dominated by hops and spices. I think to recognise some oranges in the taste. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Long lasting aftertaste.

Even if pricey, we’re lucky to get these gems here in Michigan. But in Belgium - every dive has it on tap. A king beer. Bow before it.

kramer (5799) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2007
12 oz bottle, via Zathrus13. Pours a mostly clear yellow gold with a slight fine yeast haze under a one finger fizzy and foamy white head that fell to a thin covering. Aroma is the gold standard for an Abbey Triple I suppose. Heavy thick pale malt with some yeast, alcohol, fruitiness, spices, and dough. Flavor is floral and fruity with some hefty alcohol up front. Finishes quite dry with lots of spiciness. A little too much alcohol apparency for me, but I find that with alot of Tripels. Mouthfeel is very spritzy despite the heavy thick maltiness, finishing quite a bit drier than many Tripels. This may be the standard, but it’s the standard in a style that I think may be one of my least favorite.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2007
Wonderful to look at, with its orangey colour and blossoming head. Pleasantly fresh hoppy aroma. The hops are present throughout but the beer is not very bitter by any means. Some subtle notes of orange and spiciness. This is a very good, but not a very great, beer.

[Tasted to Carsten Berthelsen, Ølrejsen in 2004.] Not my favorite style, but one of my favorites in this style. Strong and full of ingredients. Needs time to adapt.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Pours a golden hue, with a nice white head. Nose of vanilla, pear, and apple. The flavor is not as fruit forward as the nose, but carries a toffee and pear balance as well as a nice alcohol burn. A beautiful tripel, and it should be as it was the first. Nice sweet nose with a great dry mouthfeel. Wonderful and under-appreciated.

Pours a light orange-yellow with a light, foamy head. This beer has a strong yeasty, vanilla, and alcoholic flavor with a slightly nutty after taste.
