Robe dorée très claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse qui s’estompe. Arômes de houblon et de caramel. Saveurs de houblon amérisant, de caramel, de fruits, de sucre candi et de sirop d’érable. alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - MAY 1, 2006
Dirty yellowish amber, with a massive wipped cream head and excellent lacing, and a full body with a nose of cookie dough, dried fruits, pine. Palate is all alcohol! behind the ethonal is a very compex tasting of bread, yeast, wine, dried fruits (apple and apricot) and some melted butter. This tasted subdued by the alcohol comes back with a dry finish. Not my style, allready drunk. Maybe as a cocktail drink it would be great!.

11.2 oz bottle. Cloudy amber honey with streaming bubbles. Creamy white head; ready to shave. Umber streaks emerge. Aroma of soft dough, orange, banana, melon and Vienna Fingers. Simple but classic. Sour citrusy taste with apple and faint ginger(?). Not sweet; slight champagne vinegar. Nice full mouthfeel but still light. Finish is dry but leaves a oily, buttery coating; odd. jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2006
on tap: smell is of grassy hops with so friut present, and yeast as well. fine white head golden yellow with a slight haze. flavor is of hops, yeast, and some friut. Lovely balance. A great tripel, a bit pricy on the tap $5 for half a pint in state college jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2006
Golden pour with an amberish haze in the center, thick frothy white head. Aroma is of yeast and hops. Tastes present are subdued hops, yeast, a bit of fruitiness, and a breadlike sensation. Finishes very smooth and silky. Very nice brew.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours a deep golden with an off-white head. Aroma of fruit, citrus, spice and hops. Flavor is sweet, smooth, citrus, and fruit. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 23, 2006
A wonderful tripel, that has everything a representative belgian tripel should have: sweet but balanced hoppiness with bready undertones. Great color, pleasant alcohol content...overall a pretty great abbey tripel. aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2006
A very good Belgian beer. It lacks the absolute complexities found in the grande reserve, but can certainly hold its own as a giant among beers. I like the fruityness in both the nose and the flavor. This is a beer I highly recommend. johndoughty (5600) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2006
Slightly malty with some fruitiness although it doesn’t dominate. Well rounded mouthfeel that lingered for some time. A nice example of this style but for some reason it wasn’t quite as good as I expected.
