Big banana nose. Hazy, chicken soup color with a gritty head. Cool tap handle. Drier than the aroma would suggest. A bit briney, strange phenols whisper "Silly Putty". Mercifully quick, pasty finish with some fruit. Drink cold. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2006
UPDATED: APR 10, 2008 In short: An amazingly drinkable smooth yeasty blonde ale. Fluffy a bit wild with milky fruity notes. Far from intense but oh so satisfying.LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2006
How: Bottle 750ml, about 6 months old.
The look: Cloudy golden body with lots of yeast particles and a medium white head
In long: Amazing yeast profile. Fluffy body, meringue, light grapefruit, whip cream, some bananas, some ice cream. Light tartness. Something “wild” about the beer, not funky but still wilder than most Saisons. Very little hops presence. No alcohol at all, drinks itself like a 5% witbier. Parts of it remind me of their Estivalle on steroids without the hops of the Estivalle. This is not an intense beer, it is a very smooth, subtle and extremely pleasant beer. Don’t expect a classic tripel, this is a different beast. After trying their excelletn Rulles Estivale I was expecting the Cadillac of Abbey Tripels but ended-up getting a custom Rolls-Royce instead!!!
This hazy gold color triple, has sweet spicy flavors and a floral aroma. It has a long lasting head. The nice bitter finish is just right. Good good tripel. bgoguen (53) - Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2006
A great unfiltered Belgian triple with exceptional low-key character. Great color. A little tame compared to other triples, but still excellent. Great nose with subtle floral notes with hints of fruit and herbs. Great yeast sediments (when there’s stuff floating around inside it tells me it’s going to be aromatic and complex – this one is just what you might expect from an artisanal brasserie). destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2006
Sampled at the mondial de la bière de Montréal 2006. Nice tripple. golden color. Nice flowers aroma. Nice finish, a bit fruity and bitter. Great.

Hazy yellow hue, with a frothy white head, with good lacing, yeasty, bready dough nose, with citrus fruits fruitiness, hint of spiciness and a faint floral hops in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, zesty citrus fruits accent of lemons, grapefruits, pale malt, hint of floral hops, leading towards a lingering floral hops bitterness finish.

Quite an enjoyable tripel here. Enjoyed this one with my two best buddies after we did a photo shoot of some beautiful women in bikini’s for a layout in a beer magazine. Not sure if it was the women that made this better, but somehow nearly nude, beautiful women somehow make beer taste better. But I digress. The aroma was tropical fruit like with banannas, pineapple juice and some yeastiness. Appearance was hazy orange. Velvety soft on the palate. Some hops, some tropical fruit, light bubblegum and some alcohol burn made this an enjoyable one. Very nice. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours hazy orange\gold with a large lasting white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, yeast, belgian spices, and sweet malts. Flavor is smooth, sweet, yeast, citrus, fruit noted, and a hoppy presence in the finish. Good body, good brew. hopscotch (11051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Bottle... Hazy, golden ale with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention. Fruity, yeasty nose with citrus, bread, mild spice and light alcohol. Tangy, warming flavor with generous hops. Lightly sweet; medium bitter. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes spicy and a bit warming. Not my thing, but not at all bad. Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2006
From tap. Delirium cafe, Brussel. Hazy light golden beer with a white head. Smells very malty with some spicy and fruity notes. Tastes very simular: lots of malt, some citrus-zest and some coriander in a very good balance. Finishes sweet, a bit sourrish and sticky but not cloying. Lovely brew.
