COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A style originating at the Trappist Westmalle, this strong ale is a bright straw color with a slight chill haze. The delicate spicy Belgian nose and bread, floral, dry finish, nicely mask the alcohol.

Draft at the brewpub. Hazy bright golden color with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is citrus, lemon, orange, chalk, floral notes, honey. Flavor is mildly sweet, balanced, floral, mildly hoppy finish. Medium bodied with average carb, quite nice on the finish. Enjoyable.

UXO (1348) - CANADA - SEP 8, 2015
Appearance: clear medium gold with one finger of dense white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: stone fruit, sweet malt and honey, bready yeast, banana, floral. (6/10) Taste: moderately strong sweet, mild bitter, light pepper. (6/10) Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, lightly spicy finish. (3/5) Not bad, but a bit sweeter than I’d prefer. I suspect a fair bit of that is the high ABV, which also comes through as a warming in the finish and a slight harshness at the back of the throat. The stone fruit and apple also start to taste a little browned as the bottle progresses and the hop character fades. Mind you, that description probably sounds a bit more negative than I intended - ultimately this is a decent, if unremarkable, tripel. (13/20)

Another straightforward brew that is quite prototypical of the style. As such, it’s not a standout, but solid and enjoyable. Floral and spicy, with some bubblegum and dough in the finish."

alexsdad06 (8434) - Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian yeast, some fruity notes, floral hops, mild spicy notes, some alcohol comes through. Some sweet malts cut the alcohol. Not bad, but not my favorite from these guys.

On tap @ Brasserie St. James. Golden pour with a white head. Sweet bread, banana, and pear. A hint of honey, somewhat floral, and a mild spice note. Not as sweet on the flavor as I expected. Banana, bread, and a bit of caramel. Pears, honey, and spice. Lightly floral.

Very nice nose, spicy and hoppy. Refreshing but strong flavor. Very solid trippel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drsordr (2182) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Draft at St James. Pour clear yellow. Nose not as aromatic as Kai like for a tripel. A lot of hop character up front when cold, as it warms more of the bubble gum and candy cougar comes through. Taste the same, and a bitter finish.
