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.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 25, 2006
Bottle, Peterborough BF 06. Hazy straw appearance, thin white head. Aroma is hoppy bitterness, apple, tannin. Rather carbonated, slightly sweet. Hides alcohol well.

KAME (160) - California, USA - AUG 23, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Pours a cloudy amber color, with a full off-white head and good lacing. A thin head lasts until the last sip. Aroma is a complex mixture of smoked citrus and yeast. Flavor is moderately bitter from beginning to end, with a long finish comprised of light hops and alcohol. Very fruity and complex. Mouthfeel is very dry, and definitely requires some lip smacking to take it all in. A very good tripel.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2006
I can appreciate this is an excellent example of an Abbey Tripel but difficult to enjoy in a fun kind of way. More like the enjoyment of making it through an intricately complex, detailed, well-written novel. Very sweet and spicy but lands on the palate like a ballerina. Definitely worth tasting. Cheers!

Pours a golden lively color, with a solid head. The first waft revealed little aroma, however a more full inhale followed up with a sweet and spicy smell, like spiced cookies on an autumn day. Very dry, a slight fruity hint enters the palate but then slowly retreats into a yeasty pale taste that is generally pleasant.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle - very nice aroma. Almost cider-like. Tart - bordering on sour - and fruity. Golden body with a soft, white creamy head. As the discription claims, it is strong, dry and spicy. Very soft on the palate, as well. This is a beautiful beer!

Thanks to my secret santa for this. Seen it many times in the store, but never bought it. Pours out a nice slightly hazy golden color with an attractive fluffy head. The aroma is of some fruit, yeast and some spices here and there. Very nice mouthfeel with a complex flavor. Sweet fruit fades into some yeast with a touch of spice maybe some pepper and corriander. Little alcohol on the finish. Very solid beer
