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.

Murky dark gold to light brown. Doughy, yeasty aroma. Very complex flavor of light fruits, spice, pepper. Good carbonation. Lots of yeast in the glass. Alcohol warmth is a little much, but a very nice Tripel.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - FEB 24, 2005
Smells strongly of lemon, curacao, musty basement/ clove hops. Body is a sunny yellow with slight orange hues and floating yeast clumps. Head is gorgeous beaten egg-whites, stiff peaks and all – very long lasting! Commanding flavor that really fills your taste buds. Healthy amount of malt flavors: caramel, apple, grapes and raisins. Taste bitters toward end considerably with citrus and cloves. Nice beer, quality crafted.

eve (240) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Dark cloudy gold with a voluminous rocky head, aroma of freshly baked bread laced with nutmeg and currents, flavor a blossoming dried apricot/orange rind/biscuit with a long dry complex finish like a langorous ellipsis...

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2005
Light brown color, big yellow lasting head. Cloudy appearance. Peppery, fruity, mild citrus and medium alcohol in aroma. Full bodied. Flavor starts with strong citrus and fruits, ends with spicy and dry aftertaste with notes of anis. Alcohol comes up too much, drops the score little bit.

Let me just say....I love this beer, a weekly if not daily drinker of mine for years. This beer sits in the chalice at room temp, golden, frothy white head, always gives off wonderful yeasty sweet aromas. The taste is subtle and elegant, with a pefect dry finish. We have spent many a great lazy Sunday afternoon together.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2005
Bottled & from The Alex in Derby. Straw yellow in colour. Very pungent aromas off thi one. A good strong flavour, though not over powering in alcoholic taste, despite it’s 9.5%. Nice & wheaty. One of the most drinkable of the bottled Euro beers I’ve had.

BCAR (222) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2005
Refreshing nose with spice and citrus overtones. Excellent for about 80% of the taste, but overly bitter at the finish. Will re-rate, as I purchased a Westmalle Dubbel at the same time that I’m taking back due to off taste.

Bottled. Rating #500. And a deserved half century marker it is, too. Carbonation keeps this a hazy pale yellow with a massive pillowy white head. Really refreshing aroma, like freshly zested lemons with a slew of yeast mixed in. Has that light sweetness carried off by sorbet, could be cloying but avoids it with a hop nip and rapid dryness. Some beers are made for sitting outside cafes watching bicycles go by. This is one of them.
