this is the best abbey tripel I’ve had. slightly fruity with the right amount of dryness. Aftertaste is clean and crisp. It it’s smooth as silk.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Belgian spiciness. High alcohol. Really nice head. Cloudy (yeast). Nice yeasty, slightly fruity aroma. Didn’t like this as much as Chimay Rouge.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden body with that standard trappist head, nice and fluffy. Smells of fruit (white grape, some fig possibly). Taste is fruity with a bit of spice and wood notes. Pretty tasty but when it warmed it felt a bit watery.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Belgian strong aroma. Murky orange in color with large, mostly lasting, frothy, off-white head. Lots of carbonation. My palate had to get used to this brew initially because I had just eaten a piece of birthday cake. Didn’t take long, however. Fairly well balanced though pretty dry. Strong alcohol profile. Some bitterness and some clove notes. A good brew.

Draught. Orange color, hazy, large white head. Yeasty, with coriander. Flavor is spicy up front, yeasty finish. Soft, a little bitter at end, and fruity.

Light copper colour with a small white head. A very nice aroma for a tripel. A soft fruity taste with some hops noticeable. The aftertaste has a bitter undertone. (Bottle 33cl)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Superb cloudy golden body with yeasty chunks and a lasting white foamy head. Pleasant and complex malty/hoppy aroma with various notes of herbs, flowers, and fruits. Alcohol is very well hidden. Taste carries nice hoppy flavors and leaves a long bitter finish. Classical...

pours out a darker yellow color with a huge head. my bottle blew the cork off it it, so be careful when opening. taste is sweet, refreshing, blah blah its been said 650+ times by everyone else. this is a good triple, a really good triple.
