Pours much darker than your typical Tripel. It's brown and with a huge head. More bitter and hoppy than other examples of the style by Trappist breweries. Restrained sweetness. Some yeasty notes as well as some candi sugar. Medium body.

Pours hazy brown/reddish/amber with thick off-white head, good retenion, yeast sediment in a bottle.
Smell - caramel, yeasts, candied fruits, spices.
Taste - caramel, fruits - peach, orange, apricot, spicy, earthy hops in the finish.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry.
Not classic tripel, but still excellent.

I admit that I love Trappist beers. I've had them from 10 of the 11. This one was very tasty in the Trappist tradition. Low hop bitterness lets the flavor come through. It's not easy to find this one, but if you ever get a chance try it!

Amber color, almost clear. The liquid covers a large, dense, creamy foam, cream color.
Hop aroma, delicately, but for this type of beer a very seductive, fruity, noticeable in the background notes of forest and caramel.
Notes of caramel flavor is pronounced, fantastic fruitiness gets along with caramel forming a good team, again forest, in the background herbal accents.
Hop bitterness at the finish, with a light fruity note Herbal
High saturation, here fits ..

Heavy but light at the same time. It has a big herbal presence and I can't put my finger on it what it is.
It is somewhat citrussy, but not in a lemon or lime way, more like lemongrass, combined with coriander seeds (not the leaves) spicy and herbal, definitely not a fruity note.
It is nicely sweet, not too much and the mouthfeel is really smooth. This beer tastes like a witbier mixed with a Duvel. Nice bitterness which is balanced. I like that.

Pours a clear light mahogany with medium head that did not leave much lacing. Nose is interesting. Some fruity esters as expected, but also fruity malts and some unique spice characteristics. Flavor somewhere between a Belgian strong and triple but also has some saison-like qualities. Difficult to categorize with malty, yeasty, and peppery notes. Caramel that makes you think sweetness, but isn't. Medium mouthfeel kept light with ample carbonation. Overall, a better and more interesting beer than I was expecting.
