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.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2007
This had a rather flat bitterness in the flavor. The flavor did not quite seem to live up to the aroma. Not that great a tripel in my opinion.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2007
Honey, marmelade in the glass. Slightly cloudy, hazy. The head starts massize, then quickley falls to a bubbling smaller size, leaving strong lacing on the glass. Taste of malt sweetness, a porridge with treacle taste. It has strong alcohol, bananna and almond marzipan. A spicy cinamon with a citric top note. Smooth in the mouth, with long acohol lingering for ages after you swallow. Too strong for me to really love, but a great beer.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2007
Bottle. Average head with a frothy with appearance. Good lacing left in glass. Light cloudy look with an amber/orange colour. Aroma was heavy spicy (pepper) with some tobacco and other notes as grain, straw and nuts. Full bodied with an average carbonation. Flavour was light sweet with moderated bitterness to it. Finish was long and complex. Very nice Tripel I must say.

theisti (3984) - Kansas, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle poured into red wine glass. Hazy shiny orange pour. Aroma is sweet / earthy, odd combo, but thats what I got. The taste is good, though not in any way special. Finish was very yeasty.

BelgianBeerGal (3934) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 33cl Bottle. Hazy golden colour with small sediment and a large white head that lasts with good lacing. Aroma of mild spice, earth and yeast. Rather intense tripel flavour but mellowed before finished. Enjoyable beer.

IrishBoy (4143) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle; Nose is yeasty with a little banana, clove, and citrus; lightly hazed gold with a small white head; a tiny bit of tartness hits my tongue first, leading into the fruit and spices, ending with a nice bitter, with a tiny bit of alcohol, finish.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2006
Drank in a trappist glass. Golden hazt poor with a nith thin sticky white head. Aromas of bananas, sweet bread, coriander, tangerines, alcohol... with a hint of butterscoth. Dry mouthfeel... creamy and balanced finish with a good bitterness to it. You can taste the hops somewhat creamy resin. You definitely cannot feel the 9.5 % in this belgian beauty.

I HAD HEARD ALOT ABOUT THIS AND WAS NEVER A BIG BELGIUM FAN SO THIS TO ME WAS JUST A REGULAR BEER THAT WAS HIGH IN ALCOHOL AND CITRUS FLAVOR.
