UPDATED: MAY 26, 2007 [bottle] Amber colour, rich head. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Sweet and fruity with alcohol bitter finish. OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2002
Faint hazy amber with fluffly fine foaming lasting head. Big complex aroma dominated by malt but also includes bananas, spices, boiled lollies, antiseptic and bread dough yeast. Medium body with a decent but short bitter hit first up followed by a longer malty sweet middle and yeasty flavours. Finish is a bit weak for such a big beer. A pretty nice brew all the same and definitely worth trying. austinpowers (2832) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 3, 2002
The only Dutch Trappist brewery! If you're only gonna have one such brewery, it's a good thing they do such a damn good job! This Tripel is quite tasty. Starts off sweet, then some hops hit you. It's a very malty brew, as it should be. One of my favorite Tripels. Go seek this one out. Downside: the alcohol is not totally hidden. radiomgb (2687) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2002
Hints of caramel in the aroma. Alcohol it present in the taste. Actually prefer the double to this. Suttree (6651) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2002
Spicy, but still has a characteristic Belgian (yeah, I know it's actually Dutch) musty, malty swetness. Nicely balanced.

A very interesting tripel with aromas of citrus, pepper, coriander and yeast. Slightly acidic with a nice dry finish. Nice heavy malt presence to balance. Very intriguing cloudy orange color with a large, frothy head. Quite enjoyable, and I'm going back for more. ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - MAY 15, 2002
nice tripel. amber color , frothy head with lacing
bottle conditioned and very hazy, yeasty stuff here. has a big citrus nose and a grapefruit quality tartness.
very pleasant drinking from a underappreciated trappist brewery.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2011 Hoppy and malty aroma and taste. Sweetish with caramel and alcohol present in the taste.
Bottle, best until 5/09, tasted april 2011. Chunks of yeast, amber color. Surprisingly lacking in aroma. Sherry and tangerine in the sweet flavor. Apple. This beer doesn’t age too well IMO. Kodos (205) - USA - MAY 7, 2002
