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)

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2012
Poured out of the big bottle into a Westmalle glass. A dull golden color with a half finger of white head. Mild smelling; honey and sweets. It tastes heady, you can feel the alcohol lurking in the background. Bread, light malt and mild hop bitterness at the end. Light to medium bodied with lots of carbonation, which is not bad... leaves tingles on the tongue. What I find unique and enjoyable about most Belgium beers is their texture. They seem to play that part stronger than most other beers. I thought that was the strongest part of this one...

Een gewone tripel, niet veel speciaals, weinig smaak. Er zijn er veel betere dan dit

Kosmokrator (471) - ITALY - JUL 31, 2014
Intenso color biondo con bianco cappello di schiuma. Al naso è pungente, fruttata e caramellata mentre al palato è dolciastra e amarognola allo stesso tempo con un discreto bilancio tra note di malto e di luppolo. Finale persistente, corpo medio, effervescenza vivace. Un pochino squilibrata (l’abv si fa sentire) ma bevuta fresca è molto piacevole.

Stuedmaster (207) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 30, 2014
From a 750 ml bottle, dated 06-04-2013, 9% abv, served at 56 degrees F. Nice golden amber pour, small white head that quickly fades, no lacing. The bubbling carbonation is visible in the glass. Subtle aroma of light caramel, sweet malt, honey, coriander, and citrus peel. A full flavor blend of citrus sour and honey sweet with a buttery quality and a subtle spiciness, very well balanced. Full bodied, creamy and buttery texture, lively carbonation, and well balanced finish. Very refreshing, yet satisfies the desire for a strong beer.

triple_belgian (7) - Rodange, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 27, 2014 does not count
Very good tripel! 25cl bottle poors with almost no head - quickly fading till no head. Amber, almost orange color but very clear for a Belgian triple. Very tasty with caramel and typical Belgian yeast dominating. Conceals the 8,5% alcohol very well.
