02/2009 330ml - Copper colored liquid under light tan head of small bubbles. Nice lacing. Rasins and candy on nose. Wood, malt and sweetness on palate with a strong, astringent finish. Nice. MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2007
poured clear copper with a large frothy cream head and much visible carbonation. floral and citris on the aroma, clove and fruit on the taste, dry palate. enjoyable belgian. danimal34 (41) - Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2007
too much booze, not enough hopsand spice. A recipe for a malt liquor problem, not a benadictin brew.
But, I am sure by the time the 750 mL is done, ill be messed up. iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2007
Dark cloudy copper with a large & long-lasting head, lots of lacing. Aroma of musky hops, honey, bready yeast, cloves and some unpleasant soapyness. Taste starts out with an awkward combination of citric hoppiness and honey-like sweetness, and finishes drier with more musky hoppiness and spice. Medium/high carbonation. Decent.

Full-bodied. Good cream. Muddy amber coloration. Citric, fruity and lightly floral. Notes of clove, ginger, caramel and, perhaps, cinnamon. Medium perceivable alcohol. Well balanced: the bitter taste does not appear. Average carbonation(perfect).

Very nice. Wonderful ripe pear/yeasty aroma. Huge rocky head on top of a golden body. Excellent spicey (black pepper) fruity (ripe pear) flavor. Dry and strangely refreshing. One of my favorite. spector (906) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Light malt and yeast make up the aroma.Pours a light murky copper with a slight off white head.Slight sourness followed by some yeast in the flavor.Medium mouthfeel with some yeast in the finish. rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 1, 2007
A true tripel. Very nice taste and pours with a rich head. The mouthfeel is superb and your tastebuds definitely enjoy the handcrafted beer. One of the best abbey beers around. french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2007
Drank in the Maredsous glass. Poors a nice cloudy blond poor with a beige off-white frothy head. Aromas of apples, peaches, allspice, bananas and caramel. Lightly carbonated, caramel sweetened... you can taste the alcohol right off the bat but you can’t feel its 10%... Long lasting fruity aftertaste... Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 28, 2007
Pours amber with a fizzy white head that persists. Smells of old Champagne, earthy hops, yeasty and some mellow fruity hints. Taste is hoppy with some decent malty sweet tinges. Not as fruity as the others I tried alongside this one. More crisp and closer to what I’ve come to like in a tripel. Palate is tingly and peppery with a nice dry finish. Some floral hints pop in and out from time to time. Hard to believe this one’s 10% ABV given how well the alcohol was masked on the nose and palate.
