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.

Poured cloudy golden, with a apicy, fruity aroma. This felt dry and thick on the tongue. The flavor had plenty of spice, some sweet fruit, and filled out with the great trappist yeast taste. An all around enjoyable abbey tripel.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottle at DØE get-together. A very perfumed smell and taste, also some yeast in the taste. A bit malty, alcohol and dry hop, but to much yeast and perfume for my tastes. (4/3/5/2/11) --- Re:Rate. Bottle (Old ca. 2000) at DTE - Ratebeer night (06-01-07). Orange - white head. Aroma: Dusty, cardboard, peber, alcohol, spicy, yeast, wierd. (5/3/5/2/11)

Denne øl smager jeg aldrig igen, det er sikkert. Aftenens værste indslag. Ligner en hvedeøl, dufter at frugt og alkohol. Parfumeret i smagen og meget sprittet. Fy for den......det kan kun blive bedre.

I love trappist ales, and this one is no exception. The dark color and the fruity aroma are a great beginner for this beer, and the flavor is fruity and somewhat hoppy. I like this one and recommend it.

Just when you think you know how to describe/review a beer online, you get this, Turned my world upside down, that’s for certain. Fruit of some kind is usually the first thing I can relate to in a beer when looking for flavor comparisons. Not in this case. Its all spice and bread and dough and more spice. Good, different. A sweetness aftertaste, most likely alcohol. Good, even very good. Different. Great? Not for this guy, but just short. Seems to be getting a lot of hype lately, at least around here. I just don’t get it. Sure, it is pretty good, but how does ’pretty good’ get into every beer geek hangout in San Diego?

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 Gul ufiltreret øl med hvidt højt skum. Duft af sød frugt og kryderier. Smag: tung, frugtagtig med let bitterhed til sidst. Minder om Leffe Blond - bare med mere alcohol - og lidt tungere

Sampled in Ieper, Belgium. Poured a typical cloudy yellow color with a nice huge head that lasted quite well and laced quite well. The aroma was typical of a tripel, with sweet malts dominating. However, the flavor was a bit sweet, the mouthfeel thick, and the finishing flavors mostly sweet (lacking some hops). I think Victory’s Golden Monkey is as good as this one, unfortunately. Second tasting, 4/8/06: Sticky sweetness was completely non-existent (relative to the style). The hoppy finish was definitely notable, quite nice, actually. Flavor profile was apples with some candi sugar, v. light bananas, and a tingly hop finish. Excellent lacing. A nice tripel.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - JUN 4, 2006
Bottle at O’Brien’s. Poured in a Westmalle trapist glass. Buttery color with a foamy long lasting head. Hints of apricots, yeast and co2 on the nose. The palate is dryish and very well carbonated, lots of malts present. Flavors of apricots, butter, grass,vanilla, green apples and citric hops. Very nice lacing the glass looks as if coated with steamed milk. Very nice and dry finish with a tingly sensation on tounge and throat.

Bottle: Careful, may cuase dependency! Very fruity and spicy with notes of yeast, cloves, bananas, vanila. Finish is dry and plain. Alcohol well balanced not overpowering.
