Really really really good. Full on malt attack and yet bone dry aftertaste smells fruity and delicious. Almost no booziness which at 8% is mighty dangerous.

The beer comes in a medium amber color, very dark for a tripel.

The aroma hits of overly sweet banana, pear, clove, sweet citrus, biscuity sweet malt.

The flavor follows with sweet banana, hints of clove, a peppery spice, a a medium body with a prickly carbonation towards the end.

What a beer. Climbed it's way up into the top 3 tripels for me.
I love the taste and aroma. The aftertatse just leaves me wanting more and more. I have to pace myself on this strong beer.
I do wish that more bitterness came through, but it doesn't detract from this one. It would have simply added to it.
I am loving this brew right now.

Very nice beer! In our local beer tasting pub 't parlement they have a lot of choice but when I am in doubt I take this one or the regular La Trappe, depending on the Quantity I will drink:).

Full flavor and harmonious in all it's ways. Better than most trapists and goes to a triple Karmeliet but less herby.
