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.

Pours a tan color with a nice white head. Aroma is yeasty and fruity. Flavor is yeast,banana and cloves with a nice spicy bite. Alcohol is present. It fact it kind of numbs the tounge and burns as it go’s down. Very nice and complex.

Thanks for sharing, Gasspasser! This was a good one. Poured cloudy amber/orange with thick, frothy white head. Sweet, floral yeasty aroma. Evident alcohol. Creamy texture. Flavor was candy-like. Very good and very refreshing. A surprise to me.

PorterPounder (5538) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Very attractive pour, hazy yellow-orange with a tight white head, good lacing and streams of bubbles flowing upwards throughout. Spritzy aroma, light banana, pears, and alcohol. Not a very complex flavor for a Tripel. A little bit of yeast, some cloves and alcohol. A little too much carbonation for my liking. The finsih is rather bland - loses all of its luster - rather dull and dripping with alcohol. All in all, color me just a bit dissapointed - expected much more.

Much better than the flemish sour I had before it. Great aroma, full bodied potent beer. I’m glad I had it at the Belgianfest because this is something I would have otherwise probably not tried for a very long time.

A fruity savour in the beginning with a bitter aftertaste. A truly great trappist beer.

2002 Lots of spiced banana, very carbonated to the point of almost numbing the tongue. Strong alcohol noticed throughout the nose and tasting. Pretty darn good.
2001 Less carbonation that the 2002, missing the bright spiced banana of the 02 as well, more subdued... I like this one fresh rather than aged.

One of my favorite beers. Spicy heavy triple. Spicy and sweet to start and bitter after. Since that is what I seek in a triple this rates highly for me. A classic triple.

Pours gold, and a bit hazy. Aroma is spicy. Taste is both spicy and slightly fruity. Turns a little bitter in the end.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2004
Mildly fruity and somewhat spicy cookie dough-like aroma. Straw coloured with white head that diminishes to cover. Lovely spiciness up front. Plenty of yeast - breadlike. Some fruity wine-like notes. Restrained effervescence on the tongue balanced very nicely by creamy smooth feeling and chewy body. Complex and exciting - here’s a beer you can really get into. Flavour evolves as temperature increases. Bottle (at Le Bistro des Bieres Belges).
