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.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2004 Re-Rate Small bottle LCBO Release. Hazy pastel golden yellow body, massive fluffy white head. Sweet malty aroma with some spice and yeasty pepper notes. Flavour starts out with a touch of yeas and some spicey notes. Surprisingly dry finish, touch of hoppy bitterness. Nice palate. Doesnt live up to my memory of it last time. Perhaps being in the corked bottle, or being cellared a bit made a difference? 7/4/7/4/16Original Rating 750 mL Bottle of unknown vintage, I believe Doug said it was cellared for a bit. Bubbly white head gives forth the standard yeasty alcoholic tripel aroma in fine fashion. Slightly sweet notes throughout with subtle notes of citrus and yeast making fleeting appearances. I enjoyed this one. 8/3/8/3/16

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Great big white foamy head causes multiple pours to get enough of the golden yellow liquid in the glass. Aroma of citrus spice and yeast. Flavor contains pear/apple and citrus with light spices. Light bodied and nicely balanced, this is a decent and complex enough Tripel to have again, but there are others just as good or better that are not as expensive.

jerkadilly74 (155) - mooresville, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2004
An excellent trappist ale. Poured an enormous head which didn't disappear without a fight. Hints of fruit and malt in the aroma. Filled my palate with hops. Also made my cheeks feel very warm and fuzzy. Great beer.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Pours a hazy golden body with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit and lots of hops. Fruit, banana and bitter hops in the flavor. Quite sparkling, though still mild and deliciuos.

A nice tripel. Good golden color with a large, thick head. Nice aroma, floral and lemony. Nice smooth taste. Kind of creamy. Some hops, which was quite enjoyable. Dry finish...but a really good brew!

Nice golden color with a large frothy white head. Mild geuzue aroma with some apple and lemon. Somewhat sweet and spicy flavor with clove, lemon, and a light bitter hops finish. Medium carbonation, light and tingly.

Had this one after a couple of other types of beer. It still stood out from the crowd, pleasing my slightly tired taste buds nicely. Big creamy head tops a rich deep golden beer. Lots of variety on the nose - fruit for sure but it seemed to change from moment to moment. Complex flavour too with a slight hoppiness to the smooth finish. Solid.
