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 (1615) - 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...

Bottiglia. Dorato, poca schiuma di colore bianco dalla durata molto breve. L’aroma è banana, molto leggermente vaniglia, lievemente fruttata. Gusto ben bilanciato tra dolce ed amaro, la giusta complessità. Corpo pieno, carbonatazione aggressiva. Nel complesso molto buona.

Huge carbonation action going on here. Looks great with a frothy white head. Sweet honey and corn flakes scent. Lots on sugary sweet goodness in this one. Grapes, honey, malts, very bubbily! A great Tripel!

huineman (372) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 24, 2015
Pours clean dark golden. Ivory head. Aroma is low: corn flakes, grass. Aggressive carbonation. Fresh, not too powerful. Thin, watery. Not very long finish.

Salmaneser (51) - BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2015
25 cl. from tap @ Grand Café, Ax-Les-Thermes. Golden amber beer, minimal head. Sweet fruity aroma, taste is dominated by bananas. Good taste and nice palate.

Une triple classique, fruitée et épicée, à la bouche ronde, onctueuse et équilibrée. Agréable en fin de journée.

Bottle from Tesco. V nice aroma. Fizzy and fresh. Only at the end does the alcohol gently kick in, just to remind you it's a 9% you're drinking. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tbonde (139) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2015
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

Nee dit is niet wat ik er van hoopte. Ik vond het blond bier beter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
