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.

Bottle. This Tripel is very good. Pours a deep cloudy yellow with little yeast floaters. The aroma is malty and floral. This tripel varies a bit from others I have had in that there isnt the typical ripe banana flavor. There is a good spice character to it, but not over powering. The alcohol is almost perfect. Very good.

A great beer that a had to get around to rating. Pours cloudy yellow-orange with frothy white head. Very nice floral nose with hits of honey/spice. Taste has nice complexity with sweet malts, fruity and spicy notes with a long hoppy finish. Great beer!

THOUGHTS: Incredible. I could barely describe the aroma and flavors because they werent quite like anything I have had before in a beer. Ive had tripels before but this is somehow diffent. While not exactly what I think of as a tripel, it was even better. A little something in both the flavor and aroma was not pleasant to me, but it was minimal. It was underlying but kept it from being perfect. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a cloudy, light to medium amber, with an average, white head that mostly diminished, but did so slowly. The aroma was light malt, light to moderate yeast, along with honey, fruits, spices and a little alcohol. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly acidic, whilte the finish was moderately to heavily sweet and bitter, lightly acidic and sour with an average duration. The flavor was very yeasty and seemingly hoopy toward the finish. The medium body was dry and somewhat syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a metallic and lightly alcoholic finish.

From bottle : Pours a hazy orangish color with lots of carbonation and a one finger white rocky head that has good staying power, and leaves wonderful lacing in cool designs all around the glass. Aroma is strong, fruits, a little alcohol..smells kinda dry, alot like a wine. Flavor is really good and mellow, hints of fruit and spice and a little yeast, alcohol is nowhere to be found. Palate is a thin medium, it starts out smooth and gets a little lively toward the end, leaves the palate dry after it is down the hatch. I really like this.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2009 330ml Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a energetic head. The taste is quite yeasty, with strong apple, spice, a little alcohol warmth and a bitter dry finish. Really nice, a sipping drink. Quite like a good wine, great drink.

Bottle. Aroma has a good mix of yeast, apple and spice notes. Hazy golden body with good white head and floaters moving arround in pint glass. Flavor has a citrus apple along with the sour and spice in the mix. Thick body texture makes for a good sipping beer and less of the spice bite some tend to have for me anyway. Frutiy aftertaste on the palate good beer.

Hammster (187) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2007
33 cl bottle. Poured a rusty gold with a thick and large head. Very pleasant aroma of dates, spice, yeast, musk, and citrus spritz. Complex fruit flavors and some yeastiness in the flavor with just a hint of clove. The finish warms in the mouth and reveals a lot of complexity. The abv is slightly noticeable in the finish and theres also some slight bitterness. Laces beautifully. Probably better after a few other beers of in larger quantity.

Alcohol and light Belgian malt aroma. Light golden cloudy with some sediment. Starts slightly fruity with the middle going to an alcohol burn mellowing slightly in the finish. Slightly cream palate.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2007
11.2oz bottle. Aroma is fantastic, notes of hay, perfume, citrus, raisin, apple, pear, peach, pineapple, white wine, wood, and slight alcohol. Large fluffy white head that mostly diminished but left great lace. Hazy gold hue with an average amount of tiny particles. Flavor is spicey, sweet, with a little bitterness and alcohol on the chewy malt finish. Palate is soft, watery, and medium bodied. Wow, just a fantastic brew. Complex, refreshing, with spicy malts and perfume hops. Just a delight in every way. Would highly recommend and will try again.
