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: DEC 3, 2005 Bottle (330ml). Poured a murky deep orangey-yellow with a large creamy white head and lots of tiny white floaties at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is of masses of bready yeast, followed by rich fruity/spicy sweet malt and mild citrus - this is incredibly appealing and balanced, Tripels are not my favorite belgian, but *this* one ... Taste is still balanced, but the alcohol asserts itself and the malt moves into the background with the citrus zest coming closer to the forefront but this is mostly about the spicy, lively, fruity alcohol - decent body and surprisingly bitter on the finish. Very Nice, high quality brew, I must get more and cellar them.

Hazy straw pour with 1-finger, uniform white head. The aroma was funky Bretty, with hopcit, candi sugar, some spicy florals. The flavor was a tad dry, yet somewhat fruity and spicy and floral, but it never went over to the sweet side. Complex on the palate with more floral spicy notes as it warmed. Nicely done. It’s really nice seeing that North Carolina hasn’t become a monument to drunkenness and debauchery since the 6% beer cap was repealed. Here’s a big F U to all the baptists and other Jesus freaks who opposed the repeal of this archaic, idiotic, unconstitutional law. This beer kicks ass and takes names.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Complex aroma with toch of banana, this is a golden beer with a strong Co2 sparkeling in the mouth. Strong aroma, milde fruity estery and strong hopcharacter. No diacetyl and ablanced bitterness. Long ever lasting after tast and nice perfect body.

Pours hazy amber golden color with even white head. Smells sharply of yeast and alcohol. Taste is just as sharp, but not too harsh. You can taste the 9.5%. A nice trappist beer.

Bouteille de 330 ml obtenue via les Importations Privées Bièropholie. Malheureusement ma bouteille semble contaminée. Arôme: Odeur de fleurs et de gomme baloune. Apparence: La couleur est paille légèrement voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un énorme col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de solvant qui donne vraiment mal à la tête. La durée de l’arrière goût est longue. Palette: Le corps est plein avec une texture minérale. L’effervescence en bouche est forte. Présence de solvant et d’alcool en arrière goût. (Rating #350)

Smells like a nice strong belgian, and that’s exactly what it is. Strong alcohol, and nice fruity flavor. Lighter than expected, thin head.

Bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy honey yellow with whitish head. The aroma has a lot of lemon, and some banana and sweet grain. Lemon dominates the flavor, also. And the alcohol certainly does not hide. There are a lot of sweet notes in there, too, something like fruity wine, and some hints of bread/yeast. Dry finish. I like it.

BrewDad (5117) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2005
(BJCP Class) This beer came with its own press agent. So I will leave that aside and judge for myself. Golden color cloudy with a nice head. Strong fruit aroma slight malt character. Strong in alcohol. Very sweet in taste good balance of flavors. Has a great dry finish and seems to still come off tasting very light. IMHO: This was a very good beer.
