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.

Bottled. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a big head. Aroma of spices, cloves, yeast and citrus. As carefull as I was, some huge yeast chunks made their way into the glass and thus the apearance was far from appealing. Nice full body. Great mouthfeel, some tingling on the tongue and a nice alcohol warming. Some banana in the taste but mostly spicey with some hop bitterness. Way too many chunks to finish off that little bit at the bottom of the glass

(bottle) Straw coloured with big frothy head. Aroma of flowery hops and yeast. Dry and spicy start with a well balanced hoppy and non-disturbing alcoholic finish. Really good but also not worldshaking Trappist beer.

Nice though maybe not at the same level as St. Bernie’s Tripel. Light grassy aroma, lots of head, crisp, bubbly, creamy mouthfeel/finish. Very drinkable. Something I can only think to refer to as "tart." Somewhere right around 4/5 = 8/10.

[bottle in South Africa] Hazy gold with pristine foamy head that’s like a fog cover, the bubbles are so fine. Sour citrus, vanilla, candy, coconut, and some perceptible hops are all detectable in the aroma. The flavour is spicy and sweet with subtle banana and peach notes and bitterness that I don’t think comes from hops. Higher alcohol and "buttery" flavour that ends with a well-balanced hop bitterness. Interestingly, this beer does not feel warm, despite the high alcohol flavour and the high alcohol percentage. The body is medium to full and the carbonation is substantial. This beer is very good.

This is one fabulous beer. This was overall not quite as enjoyable as the Dubbel. The spicyness of it was a nice change from all the fruityness of American style beers.

Bottled. Smells of light yeast, alcohol, fruit and citruy hops. Initial flavors are slightly sweet but are quickly (simultaneously?) blended with a light lemony hop flavor before passing into a lightly bitter, spicy and alcoholic finish. Seems like a large amount of candi sugar was used given the fairly light body and dry finish. Cloudy golden-yellow color with a huge, finely beaded head with nice lacing. Very enjoyable.

oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy deep orange colour with big foamy head. Leaves lacing. Fruitish aroma with hints of malt and yeast. A bit weird taste, sweet and bitter at the same time and also very spicy. Alcoholic notes can also be found. Sweetish aftertaste. Very nice balance and palate.

Poured a very cloudy deep orange - amber with a great deal of sediment and a big frothy head. Floral, yeasty aroma with herbs and alcohol tingling the nasal passages. Very complex flavour – sweet with a mild bitterness – long, sweet aftertaste with hints of cinnamon. Overall this beer has so much complexity that it is hard to find the right descriptors but this beer is beautifully balanced and perhaps even more importantly – it is INTERESTING!

A world classic the first ever triple. Yeasty spice nose light grassy hop overtones and a perfect malt backbone with a touch of tart acidity green apple and lemon zest with a little sea salt air for good measure.
