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.

Rocky/frothy head which produces very good lacing. Amber in colour. Aroma is of grain, grass, lemon, and alcohol. Flavour is earthy but has quite a bit of alcohol. Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

NosirIwont (2409) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a big white head. Sweetish aroma with notes of cereals and remote notes of plastic. Notes of yeast as well. Interesting flavour; sweetish, fruity and slightly perfumy. Also quite dry and it reminds me a bit of white wine. Slight notes of apple in the finish. 28-01-06.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle - poured golden with a fair white sudsy head. Aroma of yeast, honey, some apple, and a touch of alcohol. Flavor is a nice blend of yeast, apples, spice, and honey. Nice somewhat bitter dry finish. Palate is smooth, airy and creamy. Very pleasant mouthfeel. An enjoyable tripel...

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle. Pure honey gold liquid makes me proud. A self-replesnish tiny fountain of bubbles in the center of the glass. Very inviting. Aroma of dry white wine at first, as it warms, morphs into cinnamon apples. Tastes is tart, with a dry finish, apples, bananas, cinnamon. Pleasing; complements a fine Italian meal with no difficulty. Not surprising at all that this has lasted and it needs not my little words to outlast me.

chicagobears (454) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2006
UPDATED: APR 16, 2006 Peppery spices, sour bread, and tart fruitness does not hide the alcohol. Poured hazy dirty yellow with some carbonation. I appreciate the appearance more than the taste. Spicy and harsh bite. Finishes sharp and very dry. I will try again once Ive tried some different Tripels to compare. 3.5 Re-Rate: After having this beer a few times again, I really enjoy the flavor a lot more. I developed more of a palate for Tripels and I think this is one of the best. Great hop variety and spicy banana bread. Love it. 4.5

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 [bottle] Looks very nice.. golden color with some nice little bubbles. Excellent spicy flavors; alcohol is very apparent. Finishes tart and on the sweet side.

Nejhleader (1495) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2006
pretty solid brew. Is a bit sweet, tad fruity. Pretty smooth for the high abv not sure if its worth the price however, or at least what i paid for it.

Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2006
Murky gold with airy head that dissipates rather quickly. Nice fruity aroma, notably apple and orange. Unfortunately the resr beer does not live up to the aroma. Has some vinegar elements to it. Very lively, heavily carbonated. Dry finish. Good but overrated.
