RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Pours a clouded gold with a white head. Nose is mild. At first the thing that came to mind was pencil shavings (like when you sharpen your pencil with that little 2nd grade sharpener). Very slight citric tone. Overall though, the nose is very quiet. The flavor. Slightly woody tone on the tail end. But overall, it is extremely well balanced. Smooth and even. On the first sip, the feel was like I opened my mouth, closed my eyes, and had someone pour silk into my mouth. Beautiful. Hence the 5. Very drinkable. One to go back to again and again. Normally when I see a beer reviewed so much with such a high score, I approach with trepidation. This one did deliver though. And I am glad to have been able to grab a bottle when I was in the Bay area.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Pours a crisp cloudy golden color into the trappist glass. Initially there was about two inches of head that dissapated rather quickly. There was a small bit of lacing on the glass. The scent was of dried fruits, spice and yeast. The flavor was a bit sweet with classic tripel undertones. Not as complex as I would have expected. A middle of the road Tripel.

Pours a hazy orange colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of white wine, clove, floral, yeast, sweet fruits. Initial taste is clove, sweet, and hints of mango. Moving to slight bitter hops on the palate, banana and spices(pepper) for the finish. Great balance, good head retention.

Bottle conditioned, 330ml, aged 5.5yrs. This poured a perfectly clear gold with high conditioning, rocky white head. A beer that ages this well has to be good, subtle spiciness with fruity, peachy background, a faint sweetness and a rich maltiness leading to a lightly bitter finish. very good.
