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.

331 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a plentiful fluffy white head. Fruity nose with hints of citrus and pepper. Medium body with an edgy dryness and a slight alcohol burn. Finish lingers into an every so slight sweetness as the dryness drifts away.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2014 Appearance is slightly cloudy, golden yellow. Aroma is mix of yeast and citrus. Clean, crisp, citrusy flavour with some sweetness (banana) and a strong alcohol kick to finish.

Bottle. pours light gold. Unimpressive aroma and flavor profile. I was expecting WAY more out of this beer. I taste malt, corn and yeast. heavy on the dry yeast. Not too bad, but I was looking for more all around.

Tap. Fizzy, small, white head (quickly dissapates). Cloudy orange colored body. Very peppery/spicy aroma. Light yeast was also present but the pepperyness was a bit overwhelming. Light Aceticness to taste. Highly carbonated. Sediments were noticed at bottom of glass. Some alcohol warming noticed. Okay-too peppery!

Hazy hay in color with a large, white, foamy head. Aroma is noticeable from a far. Spice, hops, sweet, banana, citrus, hay, yeast, and floral notes. Flavor is spicey, yeast, floral hops, malt, and alcohol. Finshes with more alcohol and spices. Medium, properly carbonated body. I’ve always enjoyed this tripel.

MoDog (928) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 Bottle. Pours a hazy golden/amber with a small white head. Light aroma of malt with undertones of light hops. Flavor is of light spicy hops with just a hint of alcohol. Nice amount of carbonation with medium to full body. Very nice.

Bottle. A nice strong beer with a tasty tickle of the tongue. If you like the somewhat overpowering taste of a tripple, give this beer a shot.

Derek881 (1272) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Poured into a trappist glass from a 330 mL bottle. Aroma was great, featuring a heavy malt nose, caramel, subtle yeast, and a light floral and fruity background. Some spice, banana, and bubble gum tones, and maybe some grassy hops. A beautiful appearance with a cloudy amber-gold color and a big, white, foamy and bubbly head that had good retention. It had a lively, fizzy texture with a spicy and fizzy finish. There was a somewhat drying alcohol finish, and it was initially moderately thin and dry, but became wetter as it settled, and had a fairly full mouthfeel. The taste was sweet and malty, becoming more sour and then somewhat bitter with an alcohol finish; it had notes of citrus, banana, and some yeast and wheat. A great ale, that is sure to please, but hard to justify buying frequently at $5 for a bottle.
