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.

Wonderful to look at, with its orangey colour and blossoming head. Pleasantly fresh hoppy aroma. The hops are present throughout but the beer is not very bitter by any means. Some subtle notes of orange and spiciness. This is a very good, but not a very great, beer.

[Tasted to Carsten Berthelsen, lrejsen in 2004.] Not my favorite style, but one of my favorites in this style. Strong and full of ingredients. Needs time to adapt.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Pours a golden hue, with a nice white head. Nose of vanilla, pear, and apple. The flavor is not as fruit forward as the nose, but carries a toffee and pear balance as well as a nice alcohol burn. A beautiful tripel, and it should be as it was the first. Nice sweet nose with a great dry mouthfeel. Wonderful and under-appreciated.

Bottle Trappist glass, great head nice hazy gold color. Alchohol was noticble. A bit grainy fairly dry finish I usualy like a bit more sweetness in my triples but not too bad. Alcohol was quite noticble.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Pours a light orange-yellow with a light, foamy head. This beer has a strong yeasty, vanilla, and alcoholic flavor with a slightly nutty after taste.

Not my stile. I had this beer some years in my cellar and I expected much. Too much I think. Much taste of alcohol.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2007
BB 03-08. Pours a hazy golden-copper color with small amout of sediment; head is brilliant white, full, and creamy with tight bubbles. Head is mostly lasting with plenty og tight lacing, maybe the best light-colored beer Ive seen. Strong with lots of lighter fruit in the nose; lots of yeast and banana, some pear, light apricot, light honey and pepper, faint floral with whisps of alcohol. Flavor is somewhat of a letdown from the nose, sweet with candi sugar and not as much fruit. Starts sweet with a honey, banana, clove, and a light bread note; moves drier and more bitter with some notes of pepper and floral. By the finish, the alcohol makes itself known and ending quickly with some notes of herbal, but still banana, honey, and pepper. Palate is medium full, lively, and a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Nice tripel but the flavor didnt match the rest of the well-crafted beer. A little less alcohol would help this one, but overall, nice offering.

thefederalist (307) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours orange-golden with a huge head. Aroma is floral and of alcohol. Flavor is of candi sugar, peppery and with more alcohol. Nice to be sure, but not the best trippel Ive ever had. Wheres all the fruit flavor?

DMRz (230) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Light golden color. Fruity aroma with a touch of yeast. Flavor was a bit of a let down: Toasted malt, yeast, banana, and a bitter finish. Alcohol presence is a bit much and distracting bitterness make this not my favorite tripel.
