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.

Fin (9931) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2007
Bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Another one of those beers that Id had so often but never got around to rating so I thought Id get reacquainted with this old friend. Poured a golden colour with just some haze there, and a large white frothy head. Nose was quite yeasty and with a definite spiciness. The taste is fruity and spicy with hints of clove and coriander but the alcohol is a touch harsh and whilst this is a quality beer it seemed harsher and a little rougher round the edges than Id remembered.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Duvel tulip glass, cloudy yellow with a medium beige head. The aroma had notes of pear, apple, citrus and the typical tripel yeast. The taste was sweet and smooth with notes of spice and citrus fruits. Creamy and buttery mouthfeel. Nice carbonation. The finish was slightly bitter with just a touch of alcohol bite. A bit dry as well. One of the better tripels Ive had.

garthicus (2916) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 29, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2010 Perhaps I got a bad bottle, I shivered when I drank it, initially a lovely cookie slash banana scent. Appearance is of a small head, golden colour and a general inviting hue. The flavour took my breath away, very bitter with strong alcoholic undertone Still, I will drink it again! Re-rate - 01 October 2010 Appearance: gorgeous hazy orange with TONS of white floaties, whispy white head. Aroma: lots of orange peel, spice, cinnamon, caramel, good alcohol punch to it too, warming clove & a hint of banana. Flavour: woah - huge tangy malt bomb at first, caramel, banana, lots of alcohol, cinnamon with a long bitter sweet finish. Woah. Super complex. Beautiful.

This is one of the top trappist beers, but its not my favourite one. Fine taste, mature look and perfect flavor.

Muggus69 (2229) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2007
330ml bottle. Been a long year since ive tried one of these. This particular bottle is best before tommorrow, so I thought why not! Spicy aroma, slightly nutty, buttery, toffee like malts, some fruity phenols from the yeast, nothing too outstanding. Looks great poured out into my Duvel glass. Thick billowing head atop a hazy looking gold body leaving clumps of lace. The body is rich, liqueur-like at times, surupy yet not cloyingling sweet. Im bombarded with notes of cinnamon and apple, peach, apricot and citrus notes, some breadiness, camembert-like cheese mould flavours, all balanced out with good amounts of buttery caramel malts. Alcohol is apparent yet not burning or too warming, merely adding to the body of flavour. Finish lingers, tantilises, slightly drying but begging for another flavour journey. Fantastic brew, glad I got to try it in more ideal circumstances than the first time.

This beer has a fantastic head. The aroma is yeasty, a little sour/alcoholic and spicy. Taste-wise, I would say that it has a nice lingering alcoholic and slightly bitter finish. This tastes different than the first time I had it. I remember liking it much, much more the first time. Has a citrus and apple note to the beer along with the spicy finish. Hmm, I just do not like it as much as when I had it even a few years ago.

Very very tasty. I loved the color, the slight alcohol bite, the spice flavor and the lingering carbonation.
