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. Pours a hazy gold liquid with a thick white head that lasts throughout the sip. Quite fuzzy and thick. Great flavour with spices and honey. Aromas hide alcohol well. Interesting and goo d brew.

Botella de 33 cl de el c. Ingles tomada en agosto de 1996 con fecha de cons pref para 01-06-1997. de las primeras belgas de compra, toda una sorpresa de sabores maltosos con cierto dulzor ligeros tonos afrutados y de especias para aquellos comienzos. Cuerpo medio con 9 vol que se notan en todo momento. Tomada varias veces mas, merece la pena darle otra oportunidad en cualquier momento. Bastante buena.

Dit is echt zoals een tripel hoort te zijn, een bier met een goede, uitgesproken smaak

Slightly hazy yellow/golden. Lots of spice (coriander?) with some pepper (seeds of paradise?). Light bodied. Dry finish. Great example of style.

It’s taken me a while to get into tripels - my loss, I think. This is really good - cloudy amber with a good white head. Medium bodied and creamy. Not much aroma, and the initial taste is of spices mingling with the alcohol. Then peaches, golden syrup, pepper and more spice, with moderate bitter finish. Excellent.

ljthiessen (354) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is fresh baked white bread with hints of fruits and spices. Flavour is dry with a spicy bitterness, bready notes, soft citrus. Drier, spicier and less yeasty than most tripels. A top-notch Tripel and something a little different.

Bready and hopy beer. Good taste not the same aroma. Foam is very thin. The body is not as it was expected.

ippopotamo36 (127) - ITALY - AUG 11, 2014
0,33 bottle purchased in Skopje (FYROM) and consumed in Kosovo in its original glass. Very cloudy golden color, frothy foamy head...white and creamy. The foam amazingly lasts very long, keeping its consistency. Some sediments in the bottle (very small) pour into the glass. The nose is delicate but complex: Belgian yeast all around, Sicilian citrus, floral notes. The first sip strikes the mouth with massiveness of cereals. Later on the Belgian yeast wraps up the palate until the final bitterness cleans the entire mouth up leaving a pleasant feel of dry, right on time to let the alcohol hit (it feels nice). A great tripel, which stays a step above many others of the same style.

This is one of the best Trappist! Excellent bouquet aroma, the color disturbed by the light, inviting foaminess on top. This beer is to be enjoyed by light fish sushi. It makes you think to convert to a Belgian monk! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
