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.

Not my stile. I had this beer some years in my cellar and I expected much. Too much I think. Much taste of alcohol.

BB 03-08. Pours a hazy golden-copper color with small amout of sediment; head is brilliant white, full, and creamy with tight bubbles. Head is mostly lasting with plenty og tight lacing, maybe the best light-colored beer Iíve seen. Strong with lots of lighter fruit in the nose; lots of yeast and banana, some pear, light apricot, light honey and pepper, faint floral with whisps of alcohol. Flavor is somewhat of a letdown from the nose, sweet with candi sugar and not as much fruit. Starts sweet with a honey, banana, clove, and a light bread note; moves drier and more bitter with some notes of pepper and floral. By the finish, the alcohol makes itself known and ending quickly with some notes of herbal, but still banana, honey, and pepper. Palate is medium full, lively, and a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Nice tripel but the flavor didnít match the rest of the well-crafted beer. A little less alcohol would help this one, but overall, nice offering.

Pours orange-golden with a huge head. Aroma is floral and of alcohol. Flavor is of candi sugar, peppery and with more alcohol. Nice to be sure, but not the best trippel Iíve ever had. Whereís all the fruit flavor?

DMRz (230) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Light golden color. Fruity aroma with a touch of yeast. Flavor was a bit of a let down: Toasted malt, yeast, banana, and a bitter finish. Alcohol presence is a bit much and distracting bitterness make this not my favorite tripel.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a hazy straw amber, with lots of clumps of proteins or yeast or both. Half an inch of white head reduces to a film and a ring, which leaves very nice lacing somehow. Peach, wheat, and caramel in the aroma. Thick sweet caramel and dark honey malt flavor. I also taste an earthy rye-like grain and a touch of green tea. Thick and sweet and deliciosly dry at the same time. Complex and tasty. Medium to full body, ample carbonation, dry, spicy, herbal, and a little alcoholic in the aftertaste.

Pours golden with a thin head. The aroma and flavor is well balanced. slightly bitter. A solid beer.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2007
This had a rather flat bitterness in the flavor. The flavor did not quite seem to live up to the aroma. Not that great a tripel in my opinion.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2007
Honey, marmelade in the glass. Slightly cloudy, hazy. The head starts massize, then quickley falls to a bubbling smaller size, leaving strong lacing on the glass. Taste of malt sweetness, a porridge with treacle taste. It has strong alcohol, bananna and almond marzipan. A spicy cinamon with a citric top note. Smooth in the mouth, with long acohol lingering for ages after you swallow. Too strong for me to really love, but a great beer.

Grovlam (4205) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2007
Bottle. Average head with a frothy with appearance. Good lacing left in glass. Light cloudy look with an amber/orange colour. Aroma was heavy spicy (pepper) with some tobacco and other notes as grain, straw and nuts. Full bodied with an average carbonation. Flavour was light sweet with moderated bitterness to it. Finish was long and complex. Very nice Tripel I must say.

theisti (3806) - Kansas, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle poured into red wine glass. Hazy shiny orange pour. Aroma is sweet / earthy, odd combo, but thatís what I got. The taste is good, though not in any way special. Finish was very yeasty.
