COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The king of the abbey beers. It is amber-gold and pours with a deep head and original aroma, delivering a complex, full bodied flavour. Pure enjoyment! Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Temp: 8-10ºC)

30 cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx 10 degrees. Pours clear dark yellow with disappointingly quickly subsiding white head. Pleasant aroma domiated by citrus and hop with malt also coming in. Somewhat thin in texture but with a distinct spicy sweetness to counter the also present grapefruit bitterness which is most prevalent in the long lasting aftertaste. Slightly effervescent, spicy and complex, but also somewhat boozy

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 Compra: Supercor Castilleja de la Cuesta Opinión: Muy buena y facil de comprar en supermercados españoles. Tuve la suerte de poder adquirir varias a 0.33? por un error de precios en supercor. Al darme cuenta compre todas las que tenian en la estanteria!

A nice strong Tripel. Refermented in the bottle, so that’s handy to know in case you’d want to drink it from the bottle

330ml bottle from Tesco poured into a half pint chalice. Golden amber with a tightly packed white head. Banana and almond aroma. Flavours of overripe fruit, vanilla, some back -of-the-tongue astringency: prominent alcohol, Long, dry finish

Sweet beer with hints of cookie dough, fruit and spice. Alcohol certainly noticeable but this is a great beer, really satisfying.

Batavi (124) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Gouden Carolus bokaal, volle goudgele kleur, met vrij kleine maar wel stabiele witte schuimkraag. De geur is niet zo sterk met name Belgische gist, sinaasappel en wat specerijen. De smaak is zeker niet zwak, maar heeft alle elementen voor een krachtige en aangename tripel. Vrij zoet, met tonen van banaan, honing en fijne specerijen als koriander, gember en kruidnagel. Het alcoholpercentage van 9% is zeker aanwezig, met medium carbonatie en een licht droge alcoholische afdronk van banaan en kruidige hop. De Affligem Tripel is een uitstekend voorbeeld van deze altijd mooie bierstijl, echter niet de absolute top, daarvoor is dit bier waarschijnlijk toch iets te commercieel voor in de markt gezet.
