COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, dry and spicy trappist ale. The product of a secondary fermentation lasting 5 weeks. This is a complex ale with a fruity aroma and a nice nuanced hop scent. It is soft and creamy in the mouth, with a bitter touch carried by the fruity aroma. An exceptional ale, with a great deal of finesse and elegance, and with a splendid long after taste.

served in a glass with bottle at Irish Tunes, in Roeselare, Belgium. Nice vibrant goldeny orange color with a huge white creamy..turning frothy head that stayed til the bottom. It has a spicy and herbal somewhat raisiny aroma. I could hint maybe plums peaches strawberries. Nice dry full flavored brew that doesnt pack as big of a punch as others of its alc content. Call me crazy but this is one brew that I felt I got hints of marijuana from. Could just been my fingers? Great finish, great light aftertaste!

Golden in color. Big, bubbly head. Banana and clove in the nose. The flavor is dry, with lots of sweetness and spice. Hides the alcohol well.

canary dog (748) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - NOV 9, 2007
The substantial alcohol is hidden, in my opinion. Tastes more like a 7, maybe 8 percenter at the most. Golden, dry, and full, with fruits and spice battling in the finish. An enjoyable experience.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - NOV 8, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2007 Pours a hazy orange brown color with a foamy, pale yellow head that sticks around quite a while, and leaves substantial lacing on the glass. Nose is spicy and citrus, with a hint of dried fruit. Flavor is also spicy, but a sweet raisin flavor is present. A subtle bitterness finishes the taste.

Does a Tripel get any better, if so it would be hard to find, enjoyed in Brugge Belgium bottled and potent. Very smooth and dangerous as the alcohol comes thru in the end of the bottle.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2010 Bottle. A hazy medium to dark golden beer with a large, frothy, lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderatey malty, lightly to moderately hoppy, lightly to moderately yeasty. There are notes of toasted grains, flowers, grass, earth, alcohol, pepper, banana. The flavour is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately sour, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, quite dry and long finish with something more than medium bitterness, moderately alcoholic. Very good, tasty.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2007
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear and carbonated straw-colored amber with a firm, billowy head. Aroma is earthy and sweet like a saison, with earthy tones of yeast and malt alongside other aromas of spice, banana, and citrusy hops. Taste is full and sweet, with an initial taste of floral hops opening up into a sweeter profile of honey and banana, finishing with a crisp and bitter finish thats part hops, part alcohol. Not at all what Id expect from a tripel, but still a solid brew.
