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.

Hazy copper with a large white head. Faint sweet malt and yeast aroma. Yeast, malt and alcohol in the taste and a sharp bitter finish. I was expecting to enjoy this, and I did. However in retrospect I was less impressed. No wow factor here, Im afraid.

750ml bottle purchased at Bevmo. Pours cloudy unfiltered yellow gold with a big white sudsy head. Plenty of lacing observed. Aroma was light with citrus, walnuts, and alcohol. Flavor is mild spices, I detect thyme and basil, set in a grapefruit backdrop. Hops are moderately biter, and somewhat dry and astringent. Mouthfeel is creamy, silky and smooth. Finish is long and dry with an alcohol note. Overall this is a superbly well crafted beer.

This is a classic example of a Belgian Tripple; it is potent, has a nice pleasant aroma and head, you dont notice the large mount of alcohol and, it leaves you with on serious hangover if you over-indulge.

I tried this beer on August 21, 2007 at the Beer Bistro in Toronto. The beer poured a murky gold colour into a chalice glass with a thin white head that dissipated quickly. The aroma was very yeasty, with some malt and cloves. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, and slightly champagne in nature. The flavour was that of yeast, malt, and cloves with a dry finish.

Ive had some bad trippels recently, but this was solid. Nice yeasty sweet aroma, but not over the top. Flavor is sweet and fruity, but well balanced. Pours gold with a frothy white head. Pretty good.

GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 15, 2007
Dark amber with a giant head that lasted 15 minutes. Aroma of malt, honey, fruit, trappist yeast. Somewhat of a syrup texture. The alcohol is very well hidden, nearly undetectable. Very well balanced flavors expected in an a tripel.

deep clear gold with a lasting full head. great lacing. the aroma first hits you as apples and fruit, honey malt, and then finishes with light spices. medium thick body with a slight stickiness. nectar sweetness that is not overpowering, with pit fruits and a subtle dark fruit note, and a light pepper spiciness. slight alcohol on the finish. beautifully balanced, very full but not the least bit overpowering
