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.

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!

liekensf (1) - Boechout, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2005 does not count
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 (3101) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5530) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 I have managed to try this one only a couple of times. Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is sweet sugar and citrus. The flavor is lightly spicy and fairly dry with a nice malty undertone but a bit of alcohol burn on the finish.

Bottle. A good triple, but a bit on the alcoholic side for my taste. Nice hints of oak in the nose. Sweet and almost sticky.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Slightly hazy golden body with a frothy white head. Coconut and desert bread aroma, slight soapy finish. Pretty hoppy flavor - orange citrus, sharp stemmy hops, fluffy dandelion sweetness. Big bitter assertive flavor.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Poured from a 33cl bottle per my boss from overseas. This beer pours to 100% head that eventually gains a body. Straw colored body with a huge lasting white head that laces well. The aroma is a ton of banana and spicy (clove, mace) butter and a light pear. The flavor is spicy and yeasty. A weird hop flavor too. I think this one is a bit overrated.

vanvenlo (1444) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2005
15 Feb 2005 - Spiritous, sweet, complex and light malt aroma. Cloudy yellow-copper-golden colour with reasonable lacing but this could be better. Light malt flavour with heaps of orange fruit and strong hops flavour. Light fruit aftertaste with lingering hops. The appeal of this beer is that it is subtle and well balanced.
