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)

Pours with a nice white head, orangeish cloudy color. Aroma is of heady begian yeast, bread,dried fruits, cherries and figs mabey some spicy aromas as well. Flavor is of candy coated malt, hops are subdued, I’d like to taste more hops in this beer. This is a good beer, nothing too complex a standard begian tripel, fits the style bill well but lacks in complexity. This beer is a bit colying in my opinion and finishes too syrupy.

butelka, warka do 10-09-16. I juz przy nalewaniu spore zaskoczenie - to ma byc refermentacja? to gdzie jakis osad? no moze i jest, ale faktycznie calkowicie sladowy... piwo po nalaniu do konca, nadal zaledwie bardzo lekko metnawe. w ladnym, czystym cieplym kolorze - jasny bursztyn. Piana rowniez ladna, niezawysoka, ale trzymajaca sie kilkumilimetrowa warstewka do konca. Choc pokal z grawerem troszke to wymusza, zwlaszcza wobec wysokiego wysycenia. W aromacie czysto: drozdzowo, slodowo, lekko przyprawowo, lekko kwiatowo i ziolowo i lekko estrowo - owocowo-brzoskwiniowo-bananowo (te owocowe, w szczegolnosci bananowe nuty sa coraz silniejsze, ze wzrostem temperatury). Bardzo fajna kombinacja aromatow. dajaca w sumie slodkie wrazenie. W smaku rowniez slodycz dosc wysoka. i czuc niemal wszystko, co obiecuje aromat - poczatkowo od lekkich nut owocowych ku ostrzejszym przyprawowym i w posmakach juz lekko goryczkowym. Alkohol doskonale, zdradliwie ukryty. Czuc tez szczypanie jezyka od ciut za wysokiego jak dla mnie wysycenia, ale na szczescie po chwili piwo sie odgazowywuje (zasluga pokalu duvala ktorego jestem fanem). srednio pelne. Sumarycznie: jeden z najlepszych tripli jakie mielem okazje pic. super. i fakt, ze produkuje go koncern moze zaskakiwac.

Hermod (3630) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2015
33cl bottle @ home. Poured amber colored with a frothy white head. Apricots, citrusy, light spicy aroma. Pleasant. Flavor has apricots, yeasty notes, spices, citrus peel. Dry, fruity finish. Lingering. Some mild boozyness. A very tasty tripel.

Yellow-orange, bit hazy with small white head. Sweet malty aroma. Sour and sweet well balanced with bitterness with strong malt and fruity notes. Sweet aftertaste with touch of bitterness.

DIBBLE (26) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Light aroma of straw and fruit. Small but lasting white head over clear gold. Crisp yet complex taste with bread and a syrupy floral sweetness. Subtle richness about this that doesn?t overpower the finish. Excellent balance of elements hides the high ABV well. Be aware when pouring of fine sediment in base of bottle.

Rica cerveza de Abadía con fuerte aroma y sabor, deja un retrogusto intenso que perdura en boca, pegas?, tan solo que la espuma no es muy densa y para mi gusto, demasiado gas (habitual en las cervezas de Abadia), por lo demás una muy buena cerveza que hace maridaje con cualquier tentempié.

thirstyrabbit (1248) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle. Golden body, tall to medium head. Sweet malty and yeasty aroma. Sweet malty taste with Belgian yeast. A bit too sweet and yeasty - the sugars in this resemble a very ripe banana. Alcohol is apparent in the finish. Westmalle and Chimay are more refined and not as robust.
