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...wonderfully hazy orangish pour with a generous white fluffy head. Yeastly citrus nose, with some spice. Grapefruit start with a hint of banana and clove. Nicely peppery with some spiciness also. Great bite. A nice tripel.

High white head that disappears slowly, on top of an orange-gold body. Very nice aroma, pretty spicy. Flavour is spicy too, with a bitter aftertaste. A blonde with an attitude!

Bottled. 11.2 oz. Yellow/Orange color. with exuberant head. Fruity aroma. Full mouthfeel. Spicy but a little too peppery with an astrigent bitter taste which I do not find appealing. Still good for its style. Multiple tastings.

Fruity, spicey, and some alcohol. A very enjoyable beer. Nothing to go absolutly nuts over, but still a great solid beer.

Light gold, cloudy, looks like a wheat beer. Strongly flavoured nose with herbs and nettles. Powerful and sweet palate but seem a bit alcohol driven and fraction disjointed. Finishes with a lick of cinamon.

In 750 mL. Hazy blonde with an extra thick bubbly white head. Yeasty lemony aroma with light orange peels. Sweet alcohol gin, with good sustained hoppiness. Creamy and complex mouthfeel. Pleasing, as I remembered from last drinkng this nectar. Thanks to Dumdum, via Capflu.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2006 Hazy yellow with tight lasting head. Nose is fruity and spicy with some sweetness. Sweet, fruity and malty flavour, with some powerful bitterness in the end. Powerful carbonation. A wonderfully balanced beer.

In the bottle. A delightfully large frothy long-lasting head, but not of high-end Belgian gargantuan proportions. Beer is a cloudy yellow color. First aroma is of yeasty bread dough, followed by a perfume. Slight citrus aroma at mid point. A medium palate with a strong alcohol burn. Average carbonation level and a good bitter aftertaste. Much better than the dubbel. Cheers!

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 Nice beer. The orange taste is very apparent. The smell is very impressive. Similar to the Dubbel, but more fruity. The idea of a beer with an orange taste turned me off at first. But it ended up working really well. The alcohol content is high, but well hidden. I had this again and was even more impressed. Tastes better warmer. Very good. I call it a tie as far as comparing this with the Dubbel.

A hazy orange beer with a huge white head. The aroma is very spicy with notes of yeast, coriander, and orange peel. The flavor is very sweet and very spicy again with notes of the yeast, coriander, orange peel as well as the alcohol - the end is a little dry and woody. But the alcohol is not as present in the sample Im rating since it is more than 2 years old as it is in a fresh bottle - I like the more subtle alcohol presence in the aged version best.
