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.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2009 Bottled. A golden beer with a huge white head. Yeast, fruit, candisugar, alcohol and cellar aromas. Flavor has candi-sweetness, apples, dried fruits and maybe too much alcohol. A lovely beer. Rating: 7-4-8-4-17-4.0. 060228

Bottle. It pours a hazy, sparkling, orange-golden body with some sediments, and a huge, dense, egg-white head sitting on top. Very slowly dimininishing, and leaving nice lacings. Citrus, banana and tropical juice in the aroma, along with a pleasant alcohol touch, a faint spice note and some pale malts. The hops also shines throug in a sort of peppery way. It’s full-bodied and effervescent, slightly warming down the throat, and with a fine bitterness. There’s flavors of fresh fruits, lemon peel, pale malts and spices. Some cellar and yeast notes too. Very well balanced, even though the alcohol might be a bit more evident than I prefer. It kinda suits the beer though. Lasting warm finish with fruits, pale malts and bitterness. A dry, crisp and tasteful tripel, but a bit too warming. 090827

Bottled, 2/26/06: Bright and shiny hazy yellow with a towering head. Just a light citric-yeasty aroma. Subtly spicy flavors of citrus, corriander, yeast and "goodness". This is quality.

Some aroma of honey and spice as well as a hint of fruit. Nice cloudy orange and gold appearance with a nice tight white foam. The flavor starts sweet and really hits you with yeast and fruit and finished dry and nice touch of bitter.The mouth feel is strong and drinks well and full bodied. Very nice brew

ghorsche (48) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 23, 2006
330ml bottle. Poured slightly cloudy honey blonde into a trappist glass with a gorgeous, large, lasting white head. Looks amazing. Aroma is champagne and lager-like sweet malts with a little sourness and definite yeast character. The flavor is a sort of amped-up pale lager at first. Notable yeast character with some sourness. Light hops that mainly show as bitterness. Notes of dark fruits, white wine, tart cherries. The finish is very bitter and fairly short with just a little alcohol present. Smooth and a little bubbly on the palate with substantial body.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2006 Small white creamy head with islands of larger bubbles. Hazy yellow body with ongoing carbonation. Spicy, citric aroma with fruity, bready notes and stale, metallic hops. Taste is powerfully spicy, citric banana flavours with a strong metallic hop background and earthy notes. Spicy, peppery, dry aftertaste. Fantastic! Drinkable, complex, interesting. Deservedly a world classic. (0.33l bottle.)

330mL: Pours a huge white head, lasting, good lacing. Pa, cloudy, golden yellow color. Aroma of flolewers, peeled grapes, perfume. Semi-bitter taste, fizzy, clean aftertaste, slight alcohol. Not a very complex tripel.

BeerMountie (117) - Placentia, Newfoundland, CANADA - FEB 21, 2006
Bottle dated 12/08/06. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a thick white head which disipates to a thin ring. Aroma of fruit and yeast. Flavour is sweet with some yeast but is quite pleasant. The alcohol is noticable but does not take too much away from the beer. Thanks to Jerc for sending this one my way.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2006 Clear golden with lots of bubbles and a healthy white head on top. Sweet and spicy yeast aroma. Sweet flavours, coriander?, spicy yeastiness, good fruitiness (apples?), dry finish, warming alcohol. Good carbonation, full-bodied. A very elegant beer, the mother of all tripels
