not what i was expecting under from an "abt", more like a heavy tripel... a good one though... sweet belgian malts form the biggest part of an otherwise pretty blend aroma.. nice full sweet body but lacking of realy punch to go with the high abv...

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!

Batavi (61) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 Uitgeschonken in Chimay bokaal, mooie oranjeachtige kleur met veel zwevende gist deeltjes en een zachte lichtcrème kleurige schuimkraag die vrij snel wegtrekt. De geur is Belgische gist en specerijen. De smaak is zoet fruitig, kruidig en bitter. Zoete tonen van banket deeg en fruitige smaak van sinaasappels en perziken. Specerijen als koriander, kruidnagel, nootmuskaat en witte peper. Pittige en kruidige hoptonen complementeren het aangename smaakpallet. De afdronk is vrij lang, kruidig, droog en bitter. De Kapittel Watou Tripel Abt is ook een interessant bier qua stijl en smaak. Het is een overgangs bier tussen tripel en quadrupel. Met het kruidige van een tripel, en de zoete complexiteit van een quadrupel. Het etiket en de brouwerij vermelden echter dat het een tripel is, dus dat moet het ook zijn als juiste bierstijl. De alcohol van 10% is ook heel goed verborgen. De extra gehopte smaak voegt ook een element toe betreft de complexiteit in het smaakpallet. Vooral de gebruikte gist maakt dit tot een behoorlijk smaakvol bier. Zeker interessant om vaker te proeven, zitten meerdere smaaklagen in dit bier.

Bottle from backlog notes. Pours a hazy dark golden/amber color with a medium sized fluffy beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, candi sugar, caramel, fruits, plums, peaches, yeast, some alcohol though not bad for 10%, decent enough.

Bottle says "tripel" but rate beer says quad though it seems much more like a triple. Pours a clear golden amber with a lot of suspended solids and a small spotty lasting white head. Aroma is perfumy, fruity, pears, and some Belgian yeasty notes. Flavour is a nice marriage of spicy Belgian yeast/perfumy alcohol, fruitiness mainly pears, and grapes. The alcohol is a bit strong but not too out of character.

vadie (908) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Couleur du cuivre avec un col moyen beige. L’arôme un peu fruité, mais aussi malté, avec un assez grand présence d’alcool. Le goût est du malt sucré un peu de levure fruité. Assez épais mais elle n’a pas remplie pas la bouche comme habitude pour le style.

Appearance is pleasant and aroma above average. Not very complex taste and palate is only average. This is a decent tripel ale, definetly very drinkable and not too hoppy or bitter. But certainly nothing that special that id go out of my way for
