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.

Bit of a stealth beer this. Almost orangy straw yellow with an easy froth head that goes the distance. Beautiful penetrating nose of lemon rind, candy sugar, dried fruit and yeast. Dry in the mouth, it always seems more carbonated that I last remembered. Not at all off putting though.More dried fruit on first taste delivering a long warm bitterness with spice and hints of thyme and rosemary. Superb complexity and devlopment over the life of the pour. Just builds and builds as the 9.5% ABV comes into play.Theres a lightness of touch too with finesse and elegance but a penetrating stern strength too.So much balance and restraint. Really kicks the brain heart and palate into action. As far removed from sessionable as possible. And I like it that way.

17Beer (327) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Rich yeast smells. Pours a cloudy gold with a big rocky white head. Slight lacing. Sour barnyard flavors and coriander, with a lingering bitter finish. Complicated but interesting flavors balancing one another. High carbonation. A lot of flavor but the alcohol is not very forward for a 9.5%. Impressive.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2017 I haven?t drank too many tripels in my life, so I can?t compare, but I find this beer great tasting. It makes a lot of thick foam. The taste is of average complexity with little sweet with quite big biterness which hits you quickly and stays long.

Light golden, clear. Not very strong aroma, fruity. Complex taste, more bitter than sweet. Excellent, just a little bit short of the best in its style.
