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.

Shes got the look... This is just how you want your little tripel mistress to look like. Unfortunately she turns out as a little, alcoholic tramp when you drink her. Just a little too much of the heavenly stuff getting through the fruity, slight malty and hoppy lady. It could have been my lifes companion if the alcohol was better hidden. Quite a shame, really...

An orangolden pour with an aroma of coriander, spice, and fruitiness that reminds me of a dry white wine. A very dry fruitish flavor not much yeast but a very well hidden 9.5alc that makes this a really good warm beer. I was afraid it would be hot but its not. I really like a warm abv beer. This beer has a first out sweet but quickly jumps to dry and fizzy as the style dictates. I like this little 12oz baby. An all round tripel.

From a 330mL Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-tinged color of hay with a dissipating white soapy head. Aromas of orange zest instantly drift to my nostrils along with some sweet peach sugars. Lots of orange citrus merengue dusted with a light layer of confectioners sugar and a hint of phenolic banana. Light to medium bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. This is quite obviously a big beer, yet the alcohol doesnt have any overpowering qualities. A bit of orangey sweetness starts out on the palate, but this is quickly replaced by a wave of dry, bitter herbs. Finishes with a musty yeasty spice that lingers with some bready malts in the final smack.
