2 year old bottle. A reviewer wrote: "I'm eager to get it on my tongue, again."

A; Clear, light golden, capped with a dense, rocky, lacy, lasting thick white froth.

S: Aroma is tripel all the way - complex, yeasty blend of citrus, spice, uplifting, floral, incense, pepper, with blend of fruit apricot, pear, lemon.

T: Complex, crisp, acidic, and rich with flavor, a slightly sour, peppery mix of fruit and spice. with energetic power in each sip, each with a fine bitter sweet, and long peppery arc that fades slowly on the tongue.
MF: A lot of pepper tingle on the palate, sharp and needle like finish. Leaves you in a great place, but you must like pepper!

"It's a power house" that ought to be tasted against the best Trappists. A bit strange and a bit peppery and sweet at same time. Arc from sweet to pepper.

Best by 10.26.11 on bottle

Served into a chalice

Pours horsepiss golden color with a small declining head that is gone quick

Smells of champagne, caramel, green apple, and some slight dark fruits

Hits heavy with spice, yeast, banana, clove.

Finishes dry. This hits hard right away. Reminds me of thier donk is so many ways

Part of Belgian Beer Research Project, Sabbatical 2013.

One finger uneven white head leading to thin broken layer, quick dissipation over medium gold body, a bit of chill haze, minimal visible carbonation. Coriander and noticeable sweetness in the nose, almost a candi sugar aroma. Boozy taste masks the coriander notes, funky mouthfeel, not very effervescent, this seems a bit under-carbonated. The alcohol is pretty overwhelming, wonder if this might be better after a year or so of cellaring. Don't think I will have this again.
