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.

Light golden and hazy with a nice and lasting head, and I pour it in my new Westmalle glass. The aroma has notes of coriander. The flavour is sweet with notes of coriander, other spices, fruit and citrus. The alcohol is present, but only just, and I can imagine this would be better after another year or so. The finish is long and the notes from the flavour is present all the way through. A really nice trippel, one of the best I tasted at this point (April 05).

bottle: pours a murkey hay colour with some floaties in it. very small and thin white head. very swett aroma with some fruits and spices flavour is pretty strong at first but mellows out and finishes excellent. taste of spices and fruit like the nose some alcohol in there as well. it tingles my palate and leaves me refreshed. excellent with each swallow and perfect slight dryness in the finish.

Sampled in the US prior to going to Brugge. Excellent beer and has an amazing color and flavor. Besides the wonderful head on it, the mouthfeel is most important as it goes down incredibly smooth and leaves a great aftertaste.

Bottle. This beer poured with virtually no head at all except for a few bubbles. The aroma is sweet with hints of dried fruits and honey. The color is a golden yellow with small floaties. Flavor is lightly sweet initially and develops into an alcoholic centered dry fruity finish. The palate is a bit watery with the duration continuing into an alcoholic flavor. Ok overall, but might need to try again with a different bottle as it seems different compared to the other ratings.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Hazey, golden/pale body with an enormous white head, lasting, nice lacing. Banana, candi sugar, clove, honey and bread in the nose. Flavor is slightly sweet, banana, peach, musty, honey, dough, grassy and herbal hops and corriander. Medium body, soft carbonation and a soft, delicate texture.

Lovely gold, with only a slight haze. The white head lasts well. There is an AMAZING aroma of malt & spice. Not as full bodied as I expected, but still a big mouthful, fantastic flavour, I found it a touch sweet, but very well balanced. A refreshing acidity comes through on the l-o-n-g finish. A fine ale that is dangerously easy to drink for a 9.5%er.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy, hazy lemon brown coloring. 1" head, lacy and hugs the glass. Crisp, tart, not-too-carbonated. Alcohol taste noticeable. Nice light release. Hint of sour apple.

3.6
DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Pours a pale yellow with a medium sized white head. Aroma has lots of yeast and some mild spices. Taste is smooth, slightly bitter, with a dry finish. Good but not remarkable.
