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.

Nose has plenty of pineapple, alcohol, cloves & yeast. Flavor is pineapple, slightly peppery, alcohol, cloves, yeast, lemon & other fruits. Funky (brett?) dry finish. YUM!

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Poured a light amber color with a thick white head with lots of lacing. Looks great. Smelled of bananas, alcohol and slightly grassy with some cloves. Taste of bananas, cloves, yeast, phenol. Everything was on more of the mild side. Was expected more full flavors from this one. Mouthfeel was a bit thinner that I expected, and I could really taste the alcohol. Not quite as good as I thought it would be, not sure if this sat out in the light to long. I liked the dubbel more. Still a good beer.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2007 Poured cloudy golden orange, with a fair amount of yeast. Decent head, and good lacing. Aroma is full of spicy pepper and bready yeast. The alcohol comes bursting out on tasting - not contained at all!! The flavour is predominantly sweet, and it is quite fizzy, attacking the tongue like hundreds off tiny needles. The finish is slightly bitter, with a bit of a metallic yeasty taste. (7 4 7 3 14 3.5)Re-rate: Had a few bottles of this now, and I’m rather underwhelmed. Aroma off honey and cow-shit seems most common to me. Alcohol way too prominent. Spicy and dry like Orval, but it seems to bite off more than it can chew. An over-rated tripel

A hazy golden color with a huge white head. Crisp aroma of fruit and malt. There is a wonderful spicy fruitiness to it that ends with the fullness of the alcohol. This should be sipped slowly and enjoyed.

Small but active head. First impresion is sweet and perpery. Can this be a tripel but then the alchol comes thru. Great does it live up to the hype? Not sure.

Terminus (3329) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 12, 2005
bottle-pours a slighly hazy peach hue with a small sudsy white head. Big flavors here of lemon, banana, floral citrus, funky yeast, dusty esters, candy sugar, slighly fussel in its delivery, but it works here. the flavors showcase that funky yeast character more than i was expecting, showing that this beer may have some age on it. I assume about 1 year. This beer has a numbing affect on the toungue throught the drink. This beer has awesome aging potential i think. I would love to get more to put away for a while!

strong but perfect balanced aroma - golden color - one of the best tripels

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2005
Golden color, with lots of acid. Creamy medium-sized head. Aroma of bread, yeast and citrus. Lightly spicy flavour with a warm finish. A very well balanced beer.

alobar (3024) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Creamy head at about 1 inch when poured. Aroma of bread. Taste was bitter with a slight hot edge at the end. A good beer, but a bit disappointing.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2009 maybe a bit too harsh i think, the alcohol and yeast seem to obvious, maybe aging will help but a little dissapointing. RERATE: Too alcoholic, far to carbonated.
