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.

Pours hazy amber golden color with even white head. Smells sharply of yeast and alcohol. Taste is just as sharp, but not too harsh. You can taste the 9.5%. A nice trappist beer.

Bouteille de 330 ml obtenue via les Importations Privées Bièropholie. Malheureusement ma bouteille semble contaminée. Arôme: Odeur de fleurs et de gomme baloune. Apparence: La couleur est paille légèrement voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un énorme col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de solvant qui donne vraiment mal à la tête. La durée de l’arrière goût est longue. Palette: Le corps est plein avec une texture minérale. L’effervescence en bouche est forte. Présence de solvant et d’alcool en arrière goût. (Rating #350)

Smells like a nice strong belgian, and that’s exactly what it is. Strong alcohol, and nice fruity flavor. Lighter than expected, thin head.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2005
Bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy honey yellow with whitish head. The aroma has a lot of lemon, and some banana and sweet grain. Lemon dominates the flavor, also. And the alcohol certainly does not hide. There are a lot of sweet notes in there, too, something like fruity wine, and some hints of bread/yeast. Dry finish. I like it.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2005
(BJCP Class) This beer came with its own press agent. So I will leave that aside and judge for myself. Golden color cloudy with a nice head. Strong fruit aroma slight malt character. Strong in alcohol. Very sweet in taste good balance of flavors. Has a great dry finish and seems to still come off tasting very light. IMHO: This was a very good beer.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Clear, brilliant, magnifying orange with audible fizz and an admirable half inch creamy white head and lacing from the get-go. Pale and staunch aroma of sourdough, corn meal, coriander, starch, pepper and lemon rind scrapings. Paling, curt and distantly sweet flavor intersession is met with a lemon shortbread - crossed with cornbread profile. Love this dirty little yeast strain. Spicy hop accentuations and generous spice contributions (in the form of coriander and pepper) meld well with a sodden leaf complexity to impart an earthen edge. There’s no shaking the starch and muskiness, and perhaps the fact that it’s 13 days away from its day of reckoning, we have aging to thank for mellowing the sugar and balancing the abbey ale, carbonation levels included. Admirable mouth feel and restrained candi sugar and fruity esters. Some dactylic alcohol, but it’s bygones, because what we have here is a lovely tripel all-around.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Pours a hazy golden/orange with some floaties and an average bubbly white head with great retention. Aroma of yeast, belgian spices, sour apple and slight alcohol. Taste is sweet and fruity (more apple) up front with a nice hop bite at the end.

This is a pretty fair beer, for a trappist. Good and strong, with a good palate and pretty fair flavor. Good malt representation.
