Pours hazy medium orange with a rocky white head. Aroma is maltu of cookies and lightly hoppy of flowers and moderatly yeasty of leather and earth. Flavor starts well balanced of prunes and candi sugar, finishes more sweet which covers the alcohol nicely. Average clean finish. Medium bodied, oily and creamy, livley and light alcohol in the end.

Bottle. Nice clearish orange yellow color, off white head that lasts and lasts. Aroma of sweet yeast, taste is sweet, crisp, palate-clearing. BelgianBeerGal (4068) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2009 Bottle. Very drinkable beer, true to the abbey tripel style. Honestly I expected more from it based on much I liked the Maredsous 8. Still a good beer, just not great. The alcohol seemed a little hot; but that makes sense for 10 ABV.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 Pours out a golden color with a strong malty banana aroma. Tastes like champagne, has a wine like flavor, nice clean crisp. In the end it has a classic beer character, true to an abbey tripel. Smooth beer, enjoyable. Absolutely no alcohol detected. robinvboyer (4683) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2007
aroma is very spicy, and with a backbone of malt, and yeastiness.
flavour is banana and yeast, with some spicy undertones, but i did find the alcohol to come through a little more than i would have liked. tomthompson89 (1982) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2007

bottle citusry-malty aroma with spicy notes. . Orange color with lots of bubbles, whitish head with bib bubbles and decent lacing. .. Sweet, with spicy finish. Hints of pepper and coriander. .. Fery fizzy, medium body. . A good/ well done trippel, but not too exciting. grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Sunny amber with dense, pillowy, poofy head. Aroma of vanilla-soaked raisins, slight metal and oak. Light doughy notes along with a (welcome) hint of butteriness/diacetyl. Slight hint of dusty hops. Full, lightly sweet initial sip, slight malty nuttiness and confidently spicy yeast notes. Subdued and classy EtOH in the flavor, finishes lightly sweet, cakey, all complemented by a perfect carbonation level. Sort of like a nice bread pudding.
