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.

Una triple molto ben equilibrata. Alcolica al punto giusto, gradevole alla vista, ottima al palato come pure al naso

rockana (296) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 8, 2014
0,33 bottle from Svijet Piva. Pours cloudy yellow with small white head. Yeasty aroma with some spices, some fruit. Medium carbonated. A bit sourish at first, but looses it til the end. I understand this is high quality beer, but it doesn’t suit me as good.

jonnyguns (1060) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle from Torst, Brooklyn. Pours a hazy yellow with a creamy white head that lasts. Superb lacing clinging to the glass. Nose has Belgium yeast, spices, cloves and some booze. Smells like a big beer. Taste is plums, raisins, cloves and spices. Creamy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Alcohol creeps as it warms. Overall a pretty solid beer.

Lukasmh (222) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with huge lasting cramy white head. Aroma is loads of Belgian yeast. Both spicy and very estery. Some ripe fruites, but some alcohol. Taste is sweet and yeasty. Creamy carbonation, medium body and long spicy finish. Sadly there is a present warming alcohol on the back tongue.

BrankaNik (12) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 3, 2014
Art in a bottle! A broad range of fruity character here with a nice spicy edge to it. Hops present in character of this beer. Alcohol is present but well integrated. Always a pleasure, this one!

Joop (4) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2014 does not count
Best abbey tripel IMO. Poors hazy with a golden-orange colour. White head. Lovely aroma of hops, spicy and citrus. Beautiful complex, but perfectly balanced taste: spicy, sweet malts, plum, raison, orange, cream. Dry subtle bitterness - alcohol perfectly hidden. - Worldclass tripel

Zlotta (96) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2014 0,33 l bottle from Westmalle chalice at "De Pannekoekenbakker" in Maaseik, B. Clear yellow-golden with white head which fades quickly. Spicy aroma of banana and vanilla. Fruity taste of banana, vanilla, caramel and lemon. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, medium-bodied. Nice hoppy aftertaste. Overall a really nice beer which is amongst the best in its style. I still prefer the Dubbel.
