Vells (714) - Riga, LATVIA - OCT 18, 2014
Maybe not standard quad, but its still very enjoyable. Decent maltiness, interesting wheat presence, decent hop fruitiness, peach, orange, bit spices, yeast. Mostly sweet with quite dry bittersweet finish. Lovely

eduardovl (864) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a Leffe chalice. A: Pours a cloudy dark yellow to orange color forming a medium white aired head that dissipates quickly leaving practically no lacings in the glass. However, a thin layer remains forever on the top S: Traditional Belgian Triple in the nose: Sweet, malty and spicy. Notes of pale grains, caramel malts, crystal malts, candy sugar, coriander, cloves, vanilla and honey. A bit fruity too with some notes of pears and figs. Very bready and earthy yeasts. Some flowery hops and alcohol in the end T: Complex: Sweet upfont with notes of pale malts, caramel malts, crystal malts, candy sugar, coriander, cloves, vanilla and honey. Pears, figs and white grapes. Notes of white wine. Wheat and biscuits. Citrus hops and a modest but pleasant hoppy bitterness in the end. Light notes of alcohol despite the considerable ABV M: Heavy body. Medium carbonation. Malty bittersweet aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Standard Belgian Triple. Complex and pleasant [ BA Review @ 12/26/2013 ]

ippopotamo36 (254) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 11, 2014
0,75 lt. bottle purchased at the Trappist shop of the Tre Fontane Abbey in Rome-ITALY (Gianni many thanks). Pours orange skin, hazy with a medium white head which lowers relatively fast. Nose: sugar syrup, caramel, ABT feel. Mouth: round yeast blast, high carbonation, incense. With less carbonation this would have been perfect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UXO (259) - CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
Pours clear gold with one finger of dense white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, minimal lacing. Nose is pale malt and dark fruit, candy sugar, Belgian yeast. Taste is moderate candi sugar and fruit sweetness, mild bitter. Medium body, moderate sustained carbonation, with an off-dry moderate bitter boozy finish. On the one had, my kind of tripel - balanced slightly more to the bitter, yet with enough pale malt/candi sugar sweetness to keep it easy-drinking despite the double digit ABV. But on the other, hints of characteristic Belgian yeast flavours - bubblegum, bananas, cloves - layered behind what basically amounts to a light fruitcake, means the flavour basically bridges the gap between tripel and quadrupel. It’s definitely fruitier than your normal tripel, but much lighter than a quad, so I see why they call it a Tripel Abt. It hurts my OCD when things defy easy characterization, but I guess I can’t really blame the beer for my own shortcomings, can I?

DutchMark (170) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2014
Nice typical Belgian . I would call this strong blond a triple. It is not boozy but the 10% is part of the flavor. The smell is quite alcoholic. Texture and carbonation is pleasant. The flavor is less sweet than I expected with lots of yeast malts and a good amount of bitter hops. Easy to drink.

Trappis**d (18) - Dorset, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
A beautiful cloudy amber, froth clears pretty quickly, sticky sweet deep autumnal flavours, woody, earthy, with a bitter back taste, one to drink under a large oak tree on a warm September day!
