UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Bottle: Big frotty white head, that disappears slow, on top of a golden beer. Smell is a sweet and spicy mix of malts fruit and yeast. Taste is a soft and smooth mix of malts, caramel, hops, citrus, yeast, spices, herbs and a slight hint of alcohol. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.

Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer is dark yellow colored and pours a stable and large white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is fruity, with tones of yeast and hops and a nice sweetness of caramel. The taste has a wonderful balance between rich, slightly pungent flavor and warmth of the alcohol. The finish is dry and light bitter and a little alcoholic. The alcohol is a little disturbing in this beer, but I like the taste. Therefore 15, or else I would have given it 16 or 17.

Good in all elements. Sour, bitter taste, the same goes for aroma. Bitter aftertaste.

Icedwarf (612) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Donker geel bier met schuim. Smaak is complex en krachtig, licht zoet en licht bitter met sporen van kaneel, nootmuskaat. Smaak blijft erg lang hangen, geslaagd bier wat iets van tripel en iets van quadrupel heeft.

ZodiacM (252) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2015
Een lekkere tripel, wat zoeter en zwaarder dan een gewone tripel, gaat richting een quadrupel, en dat komt deze tripel absoluut ten goede. Fris, zoetig, kruidig, hoppig, moutig. Complexe smaak, iedere slok proef je weer iets meer. Het alcoholpercentage van 10% merk je tijdens het drinken niet.

Hamirubi (246) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2015
10cl sample at the Zythos Beer Festival (Leuven, April 25th 2015), as the as the 10.0% "Vintage Kapittel Tripel Abt (brouwerij het Sas-Van Eecke)". Beautiful amber with a fiding foam. A spiritful mouth full of malty notes. A nice vintage tripel.

lello4ever (214) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Un’ottima belga d’abbazia, colore arancio chiaro con una bella schiuma di media compattezza e persistenza. Giusta carbonazione, un pelo piatta di aroma, ma eccellente al palato. Inizia dolce per finire con una punta di amaro. Alcool ben nascosto visti i 10%. Buona.

3ccl @ tap. Colore ambrato, aroma debole. Tripel belga beverina discreta, ma c’è tanto di meglio in giro.

Much better than their dubbel. Big alcohol warmth which is great, nice warming effect. Has all the expected flavours of caramel malts, yeast, bread, spices, herbs, etc. Nice!
