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.

Golden pour, bubbly but quickly dissipating head. Lots of alcohol in the aroma. Malt and spices/dried fruit as well. Alcohol is very strong in the flavor, too. Unpleasant, even. Malt is complex and complimented by a lot of nice esters, but you have to seal your mouth to get to it through the alcohol. Full bodied in spite of the alcohol issues. Just needs some aging, I would guess.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy light golden orange with a lasting fluffy off white head. Aroma is of oranges, pepper, honey, citrus, floral. Taste is of biscuits, honey, pepper, caramel, stone fruit, long spicy yeasty finish. Watery to oily mouthfeel, hard carbonation.

datrael (160) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Aromat cudny - kwiaty, figi, rodzynki, fenole, po prostu wspaniale belgijski. W wyglądzie jasny bursztyn z białą, całkiem solidną pianą, bardzo ładne. W smaku pełen bukiet różnych nut - rodzynek, fig, słodkiego wina, owocowej nalewki, wyraźne drożdże. Bardzo przyjemne, każdy łyk rozgrzewający. Ciało stosunkowo lekkie, pijalne, wysycenie średnie. Znakomite, kompletne, belgijskie piwo. Świetny tripel

Aroma: the aroma is nice, yeasty, fruity. Appearance is just good, I always find it hard too judge appearance, isn’t appearance quite often quite the same? Maybe my eyes aren’t subtle enough. Taste: this one shines, I love the yeast dryness and that huge bitterness. Palate: good I’d like to try this one when it’s slightly less carbonated though Overall: I freakin’ love this beer, it’s really dry and high in alcohol contents but it tastes really well and complex

Golden color, hazy. Fruit aromas, yeast, alcohol. Taste is banana, furits, yeast, spices and heavy alcohol. The high alcohol taste works though. Slight acidic finish, with lingering alcohol burn. Really good.

Bue en bonne compagnie, cette merveilleuse bière est puissante, forte et se laisse boire après un bon repas. Peu mousseuse, robe en or goût merveilleux. Une réussite !

GoddamnNoise (31) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUL 2, 2016
Aroma: fruits, bubblegum, citrus, acidic, spicy, very light hint of alcohol. Appearance: pale straw yellow color, with medium thickness white head. Hazy. Head with low retention (probably because of its high alcohol content). Taste: medium sweetness, light-to-medium bitterness, light-to-medium sourness. Palate: medium body, oily texture, soft-to-average carbonation, quite long light-to-medium bitterness finish with a touch of sourness. Overall: a good beer without discussion. The high level of alcohol content is not present in the aroma nor in the flavor. Good for thirst quenching. NIce citric touch. Well balanced.

Köpt på flaska i Brugge. Klar, gyllengul med luftig vit skumkrona. Maltig och söt doft. Söt, vass och lite spritig kropp. Spritig smak av örter, lite skumbanan, koriander och ljus sirap.

Flesje thuis gedronken. Gougeel helder bier met veel en stevig schuim. Vreemd aroma; asperges ??? Smaak is zacht en licht bitter. Drinkt lekker weg.
