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.

Clear orange body with a creamy white head that last. Aroma of coriander, pepper, lemon and bubblegum. High yeast presence. Spicy hop, coriander and pepper are well mixed in this well balanced beer. Admirable complexity and subtleties. Sweet mouth feel with cassonade and fruity esters end. Houlala!

330mL bottle. Pours hazy blonde with a thick cap of white head. Nose is loaded with fruit; apple, banana, juicy fruit gum, candied orange. Lots of candy floss, honeyed malt, chamomile and woodsy hop. Sweet up front with plenty of spice and a bit of bitterness on the back end. Full bodied and full textured with a creamy mouthfeel. A hallmark, lovely.

Towey1989 (530) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. Pours a hazy golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of bread, some Belgian yeast, cereal, slight banana, subtle cloves, a little apricot, herbs and lots of spice. Taste is similar of bread, some Belgian yeast, banana, subtle cloves, slight vanilla, pepper, lemon, a little apricot and spice. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, slightly tart, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. A great example of a Belgian tripel. Fruity, spicy and the unmistakeable Belgian banana, clove yeast flavours. Great.

Not my favorite Aroma. But it is good. Lots of cereal, citrus, fruity and hoppy aroma. Normal Foam, is a bit more carbonatated than I would wanted. I felt it very dry.

Golden color, cloudy liquid and medium head. Hoppy aroma (floral) and alcohol. Taste - Biiter, sweet and sour in the end. On the palate, it has a fizzy carbonation and nice body. Very good tripel.

maekchu (2686) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle. Haven’t had one of these since I started rating. Yeasty and honeyish nose, orange peel, spice, and some fumes. Hazy medium orange/gold color, big fluffy white head which diminishes to a fairly constant 1-cm or so, exceptional lace. A liquid grenade of condensed fruit, candi sugar, small citrus notes, light pepper, and very evident alcohol. Geez! Feels both fresh and matured. Kick ass stuff.

Achel (140) - GREECE - JUN 22, 2015
Pours hazy yellow with small yeast sediments and a huge white head. Spiced, slight acidic and yeasty aroma. Smooth, spiced, slight acidic note, mild caramel malt and that yummy mellow Westmalle yeast note. All in a complex yet smooth blend - with a light bite towards the finish, just telling you that this is a 9.5% alcohol beer. Fantastic.
