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.

janubio (761) - - JUN 1, 2014
330 ml. bottle poured in a Westmalle chalice glass. Good nice head with a lace that seems to last forever. Smell of frutis, lemon grass , alcohol, sherry wine. Spicy. Good carbonation, thick and creamy palate. Taste of fruits, maybe apricots, hints of tropical fruits, some citrus,almonds, spicy. Long dry finish. I understand why this is considered the classic example of a belgian tripel. Excellent.

jedrol (49) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Small bottle Appearance: amber, only a bit hazy, awesome creamy head, unfortunately with rather poor retention, decent lacing Aroma: mainly banana, cloves and phenols, but also sweet, some brown/burnt sugar notes in the background Taste: sweet, brown/burnt sugar like, banana and phenols, for me too high carbonation, All in all, very pleasant beer to drink. For me the carbonation was too high. Moreover, alcohol was well concealed; one could only feel very subtle warming while swallowing.

Davros IX (80) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2017
A lovely golden colour and a very nice layered flavour. A definite hit of Belgian yeast with a soft undercurrent of bitter, but smooth hops. This gave a nice mouthfeel and a low level of carbonation rounded off what was a very good package. I think I have found a Belgian that I would drink again!

nephirem (411) - CROATIA - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy golden pour with quite visible carbonation. One finger creamy white head, long lasting. Thick lacing on the glass. Yeasty nose, slightly herbal, touch of toffee and caramel. Medium body with quite high carbonation, lively and prickly on the tongue. Regular texture. Mildly bitter, somewhat boozy. Aroma of yeast, malts, herbs. Slight toffee and caramel, a bit candy. Strong alcohol presence, both in taste and mouthfeel. Peppery. Very dry finish with lasting alcohol burn. Overall, nice one.
