COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

Nice bottle, but sorry that they not are making paper beer-labels on their bottles. The smell is actually quite nice, but the color is to bright compared with the taste. The taste is nice and long and not to agressive. Very nice beer.

I enjoyed this one. Poured a beautiful golden color with a large frothy white head. Nice lacing. Fruitiness in the aroma. Great flavor, smooth, an enjoyable beer to share with someone. Ill be sure to always have a bottle of this on hand in my home.

Unusually dry for an abbey tripel--and at 7.5%, a little bit weaker. But it has good flavor notes--a bit of hop, a bit of citrus, a bit of yeast, and its excellent with a fine Waterzooi (classic flemish fish/chicken dish).

Life is too short indeed, buy a bottle and share it with good company. Appley, mature bitterness, dry and delicious. Others in the festive party did not like as much. 601st rating, just past climax.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a substantial head. I couldnt get much from the aroma, minus faint citrus. The flavor was light and sour, backed by heavy carbonation, similar to a champagne. Goes down real easy!

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
pours golden with a very fat off-white head that was still present as i took the last sip off this beer. aroma was good, a little yeasty with some spice, taste was also yeast, carbonation, spice, it was light and smooth with some dryness at the finish. good beer, very drinkable.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - JUL 14, 2005
a belgin triple with a very fine palate. pours golden into a glass with a white head that remains. fruity aroma combined with sweet flavor make a very pleseant beer. bubbles are very fine and tickle the throat more than other beers.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (330ml). In a Corsendonk tulip glass (of course!). Pours incredibly lively, watch out for masses of white head which goes rocky quickly, leave decent threads of lace behind; huge champagne-like bubling action lasts forever. Pours murky golden-orange, quite a few white yeasties, had to leave about 5% in bottle - dreaded dark yeasties! Aroma pleasant, yeast, dry white wine, a tang of sourness, apricots, hint of crisp malt and ashy hop. With a white=tip nose, I taste - wine, apricot, slightly tart, not very malty, with an oily texture on my tongue, quite complex (my bottle is better part of a year aged) - finishes hop-bitter, a bit of lemon zest at the end. Very nice, and I prefer the dark!
