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.

The commercial description of this fizzy brew fits quite well. It pours very yellow, with a huge, big-bubbled head that lingers with minimal lacing. It smells like coriander mixed with other herbs and spices, with a hint of band-aid thrown in. Someone earlier said it, and damned if itís not in there! The taste is immediately peppery, spicy, and very dry. This reminds me of the vegetable-type ales, itís so earthy and spicy, like the smell of fermented fruit or vegetable peel left in the sun. Lots and lots of smells and just as many components to the taste. The palate is a bit heavy, especially when the brew warms. Considering how complex this brew is, the finish is actually clean with warming alcohol. I donít dislike this brew, I just donít like it that much, either. I can see how some people would really like it. Maybe Iím just not a tripel fan...though I thought I liked all things Belgian...hmmm. I just donít really care for medicinal ale.
