33cl bottle labled no.11 Clear light amber with a white head. Yeasty, oxidized pit fruit aromas. Medium body. Rich, sweet pit fruit and candi sugar flavors, with tart citrus and spicy hot alcohol to balance. Reminisent of Mad Bitch. Very good n’ strong. Thanks Brad for this bottle.

Bottle tried side by side with the Reserva. Pours sunset peach with a giant off white head that left some nice lacing. Bananas, clove spice, and a heavy yeast presence on the nose. Flavor is also very yeasty with some citrus fruits, peach, and banana flavors. Big yeasty finish. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - JUL 26, 2009
33cl bottle. Pours a cloudy orange colour with big creamy off-white head. Darker than average abbey tripels. Aroma is lots of malt, spicy and fruity. Flavor is sweet fruit, warm alcohol and a bit of bitterness. Quite dry finish. Full bodied with medium carbonation. lots of yeast floaters in it. This beer has complex flavor and it’s warming: a great beer. ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Tsjeeses is right! On tap at Novare Res.
Pours a dark orange color...bit darker than most triples with a medium tan head. Aromas are spices, tons of them, some fruity notes in there too. Like a peppery date with coriander. Flavor is similar, spicy up front with a fruity sweetness on the end of the palate. Nice brew! fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Bottle pours dense caramel color I can’t see through with white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is banana, cranberry, white pepper, yeast, and some biscuit. Mouthfeel is warming. Flavors follow the nose and and also have some alcohol on it as well. This has a warming feeling as you drink it. Its a solid beer. Not as good as the reserva version, but a great beer on its own.

2009-06-26. Golden amber body with modest beige head. (3+) Aroma of spice over sweet malt, mild yeast, alcohol grows as it warms, touch of pepper. Flavour is similar, spice, light pepper, touch of spice is coriander like. Pleasant light bitterness goes hand in hand with the alcohol. Lingering herbal fruitiness in the finish. Average plus bodied palate is pleasantly carbonated. Decent. Bottle, from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo Jblauvs (1358) - Chester, Vermont, USA - JUN 30, 2009
hazy golden pour. sweeeet malts and some bready sugars. some fruits as well, apricot and peach. Mouth is a shock of molasses and sweet nectar fruits. A little bit of booze on the finish but otherwise its well masked. mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth and the finish is a bit prickly with the alcohol. oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Dark hazy amber with smallish white head. Aroma is bready perfume, citrus, and sweet malt. Banana and clove come through as well as angelfood cake. Flavor is sweet caramel and fruit, banana, and nectar. Extremely pronounced and flavorful. Some bready biscuit notes come through as well as some yummy citrus. Palate is smooth and rich- phenomenal for the style. Perhaps the best tripel I’ve had yet. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Hazy golden pour with small white head. Aroma holds lots of sweet malt, bread, spice- light but delicious. Flavor is superb; light brown sugar, bread, sweet molasses, spices- incredibly tasty. Mouthfeel is wondrous, has a nice tinge of alcohol, and a bit of dryness on the finish. Superb abbey tripel, maybe the best I’ve had to date. l1br4r14n (451) - Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle started to foam over, so I had to pour fairly quickly and ended up with a lot of floaters. Aroma is very bready. Flavor is yeast, bread, a subtle cinnamon and other spices. This drinks very smooth and nicely. If not for all of the yeast floaters the palate would be quite nice.
