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.

A really good tripel, somewhat more bitter finish than most tripels I've had. One of the better ones.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2004 malty an spirity on the nose with fruit and spice also influencing the aroma. dark golden with a nice head and light carbonation in the glass. nice complex flavours with dried [apricot, apple] and fresh fruit [pear, hint of cherry] and spice the most dominant, with bitter chocolate and malt also present. lightly bittered as is the norm with belgian ales, nice body and flavour on the palate. very nice, reaffirms my love for tripels.

mds (2200) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2006 bottle. dark orange body with a large fluffy white head and large yeast specks in suspension. the aroma is pleasant - full of cereal, honey, lemon, and apple notes. well, my impression of this beer has certainly changed since the first time I had it about two years ago...changed for the better I might add. quite dry, yeasty, and liberally spiced with some sweet fruit in the background. carbonation is lively and the alcohol is masked quite well. a good choice for the LCBO to bring in at a very nice price.

Pours golden in color. not one for abbey tripels, but it was a good beer. Malty and fruity. A little citrusy and spice with som alcohol. Pretty good.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2004
My bottle was dated 12-08-05, and said 9.5%ABV. This was one fine looking beer. The bottle also looked rather new and fresh. Poured clear (suprisingly enough) and golden, with a couple of floaties, and that perfect trappist head. Aroma was not what I expected, rather was more like many abbey tripels that I have had. A little citrus and spice, and some alcohol, not the musty tobacco earth notes I expected (like the Achel Blonde). Flavor was malty and fruity, with a pleasant alcohol bite, and once again reminded me of its cousins. If the price wasn't only $4.35 a bottle, I may have complained, but this beer was what it said on the bottle, a Tripel.

Cloudy golden in color, nice fluffly white head that laced around the glass, lots of bitterness in the flavors, full in body, nose full of alcohol, fruity tones to the flavors, spicy finish, excellent tripel

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2004
Bottled. 1yr. old from time of purchase . Pours a cloudy pale orange with a 1inch head that quickly fades to a thin sheet that never goes away.Estery. Smells of pears, green apples and alcohol.The balance in the flavour is a bit skewed as the alcohol dominates over all else, however their are hints of pear and pineapple. O.K. but so far I like unibroues' style of "triple."

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 9th, 2004: The beer is a hazy golden orange color with a thin white head. Thin lacing and a little sediment was noticeable. The aroma is very fruity, along with some yeast. Nedium body with a lot of alcohol initially, and it gets smoother very quickly. There is a nicely complex blend of fruit, spice, vanilla and hops. The finish is dry and fruity. I liked this one more than the Dubbel.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Label states best before 5/16/04. Spicy, fruity nose with notes of banana, apple, and white wine. Yellow-orange body with plenty of yeast sediment, topped by a thick, creamy off-white head. Definitely on the dry side, with alcohol, sweet fruits, and crackers/bread comingling. A spicy beer enhanced by the tight carbonation and warming alcohol. Nice. I am somewhat partial to the sweeter Tripels though.
