This dark golden ale pours with a short white head. The aroma is of yeast and fruit. There is a noticeable alcohol flavor initially, with a hoppy finish. This is a nice example of the tripel style.

Cloudy golden with a bubbly white head. The head left lacing all the way down the glass. Highly carbonated. Aroma: bread, orange, bubble gum, and floral notes. Has a heavy mouthfeel and you can taste the carbonation as the bubbles dance across your tongue. Flavor is mostly yeast, with slight fruit notes. Apricot sticks out over all of them. Spicey with a dry finish.

Bottle. Hazy orangey golden color with medium rocky off white head. Aroma and flavor were very complex hop, citrus and spice. Full body with creamy sweet texture. Enjoyed.

If you like strong Belgian ales, this is one you need to try. Perfect golden color with a very sizable head. You definitely taste the yeast. Very good.

Golden with a white head. Sharp alcohol presence throught the aroma and flavor. In addition to the alcohol, there are grapes and spices in the nose. The flavor contains orange rind and yeastiness. Nice finish - very dry and hoppy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very nice aroma and beatiful golden appearance. Somewhat disappointing flavor and mouthfeel, however. Much too dominated by the alcohol.
All in all a very mediocre trappist.
