UPDATED: OCT 15, 2012 Bottle says best before October 06 2013 thus it was one year old. Deep orange hazy gold with a thick puffy white lasting head. Smells full of citrus fruit and mango, malt and a deep cookie under all that alcohol. I hope with some more ageing that will fade. Some spices, like ginger and hay. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of malt and spice with alcohol tummy warming. A nice earthiness makes it more of a sipping experience. Apples, raisin, some lemon.The finish is dry with some hops lingering. Nice and complex. Delicious after it aged. Want more.

En bouteille 33cL. Bonne trappiste triple. Plutôt claire et carbonatée. Assez forte. Notes fruitées.

I got this bottle in a trade with joe1510. Thanks Joe!
It pours a cloudy orange-yellow with a massive and growing head of billowy foam. A delight to look at in my New Belgium chalice. Lots and lots of lacing is another plus.
The smell has notes of yeast, tart fruit, some banana, and a bit of clove.
The taste adds on to the pleasure of the smell, big time. First sip and I notice how pungently delicious it is. The yeast and tart fruit really work together nicely and make for a drying quality that makes me want to take more sips and yeah, being as strong as it is, sips are in order for sure but that doesn't hurt the drinkability much if at all.
There's some peppery and malty tones that I start to notice after the 3rd sip or so that bring in just the right amount of spice and sweetness to just trim the outer edge of the bitterness and that's all I want it to do. Me like the dryness factor here big time. ;^)
It has a medium thick mouthfeel to it that is just so silky smooth going down, it's scary.
I'm just about finished with this bottle and it's time to reflect on how great a drinking experience I just enjoyed. It's a hot summer day and I'm sipping on a brew that's 9.5%abv and I find it so damn refreshing! Go figure! This is truly a world class brew and I'm so happy I got a chance to drink this again after many years doing without. Thanks again, Joe!
