COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, full-bodied Belgian Abbey-style beer. The traditional yeast strain that is used imparts a rich array of spicy and fruit-like flavors. The prominent clove and melon notes are complemented by the sweetness and alcoholic warmth of the beer. The appealing color of glowing orange makes this brew irresistible.

An unclear orange beer with a disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and spices. The flavor is very sweet with notes of alcohol, spices, and peaches. OK triple.

Draft at Paradiso Dupont. An average, middle of the road tripel, not offensive, but not not exciting either. Pleasant enough.

jtclockwork (16685) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Had both the 2003 Abbey Triple vintage and the 2009 new version. Early vintaged bottle at Pilsner Pete’s RBSG. Pours a clear amber. Nose and taste is very sweet, beet sugar, molasses. I thought the newer vintage was a little sweeter and poured clearer.

3.7
bhensonb (15336) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Bottle from Half Time. Pours orange gold with a foamy white head. Aromas of peach fruit and mildly peppery spice. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is peach, something phenolic, and some "mildly pepper spice". Finishes more dry than not, and the carbolicity stands in for bitter. Actually seems to move towards bitter. Rather light given the 9%. Drinks nicely.

3.6
Tmoney99 (14601) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Bottle. Poured dark hazy amber with an average creamy off-white head. Aroma and flavor was moderate sweet yeast and fruity complex average finish. Medium to full body with a light alcohol bite.
