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.

Cloudy orange-amber with an average foamy head and fair amount of unfiltered particles. Yeasty and floral aroma. When sipped, hides the alcohol very well. Comes through in the finish with less dainty swigs though. Aftertaste is a bit perfumy.

One of my favorite tripels....the first I ever had in The Netherlands. Nice cloudy orangeish pour...big fluffy white head. Spicy aroma, yeasty, coriander, orange zest. The spicy coriander and yeast are all over the flavor with a nice alcohol kick. Give me some more. Nice earthy dry finish goes well. A hint of pepper is there too. I can always drink this top-notch ale.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2007 Bottle poured a slightly clouded sparkling golden ale into my trappist chalace. Modest fluffy cap and wonderful lacing. Lively effervescence. The nose is greeted with a musty-spicey-honey-apricot aroma..alcohol well hidden here. Mouth feel is peppery from the carbonation. Flavor is not overly complex with the dominant sweet brewer’s sugar mingling with the caramel malts and yeast to give a sweet spiced cider tone, the hops are there but sit in the background providing a tartness reminiscent of sour apple..short dry alcoholic finish where the alcohol becomes very apparent. Not my cup of tea....not very drinkable and too sharp to be savored slowly. I echo Oakes sentiment: " what the hell is so special about this?"

Crockett (1032) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2005
Pours hazy light gold with a big white bubbly head. Nose of spice, bread dough, mustu apples and something not unlike bananas, but kind of like sour-sop(guanabana). Hot with alcohol and sweet with ripe white fruit. Remarkably dry finish. About as text book as you could possibly get in the tripel arena. Not my favorite but welcome.

adrian910ss (2427) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Pours a light golden yellowish color with a thick creamy white head, which fades quickly. Smells of sweet spices, with hints of banana, pepper, and other fruits. Tastes very much like Golden Monkey by Victory. Is slightly sweet with an abundance of spices. The alcohol is hidden well. Very enjoyable.

JohnnyFlake (53) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - DEC 8, 2005
330ml Bottle - Pours a very hazy, yellowish gold with a fair amout of particles floating around and a nice creamy, three finger head that never completely dissapated. Lacing was considerable. Aroma is mostly yeast with flora notes and fruity nuances and maybe a touch of honey. Flavor offered more hops than I expected, lot’s of yeast and malt and many fruity nuances. The alcohol comes to the front every now and then, although most of the time it remains well hidden. Mouthfeel is rich and smooth with very modest carbonation. The finish is long, dry and a tad bitter! This is a very well made beer, a real treat.

330ml brown bottle. A careful pour yielded a very clear, golden hued beer with a small lacy, creamy white head. Yeast plays a big part in the aroma, floral hops are noticable, fruity with faint oranges. Creamy mouthfeel but effervescent. Flavour was bready and yeasty, with a nice burst of orangey hops in the middle. Long dry finish with a nice note of bitterness.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2005
11.2 oz (350 mL) brown bottle purchased from David Copperfield’s, 74th Street and York Avenue, NYC. ABV 9.5%. Hazy golden yellow Belgium ale having a diminishing large white head with good lacing. Soft carbonation. Intoxicating fruity and sweet malt aromas. Light-to-medium bodied that starts dry with light sweet malt and finishes dry, crisp and clean. No discernable bitterness. Notable alcoholic warmth. Resembles Duvel but with greater flavor. This is a good drinkable dry Belgium ale.
