3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Aromas of alcohol, pils malt, and fruit. Otherwise clean, light spiciness, restrained. Very nice.
Appearance: Blonde, very clear, with decent white head retention.
Flavor: Sweetish malt presence, no hop, but hefty fruity notes. Alcohol adds fruity notes.
Palate: Adequate carbonation with some alcohol warmth that is a little harsh.
Overall: I liked this beer, clean for a belgian, however full flavored. Easy drinking for such a big beer.

Not bad, have had better Tripels, aroma of sweet fruit and honey, can smell the 11% AVB. Warming taste, medium bodied. Not bad at all.

Nice big head, somehting didnít sit with me on the aroma, but didnít hurt the overall enjoyment of this solid blonde. BelgianMaid hits it with the Don de Dieu comment. To get the full effect, have a drunken freind knock it over in the car and then poor in the dregs, the yeast smooths it out and, in my humble opinion, improves it. Of course, by the time you reach the bottom of the 750ml of this stuff, you wonít care whats floating in your glass, you wonít be able to focus on it anyway.

Drink it along a melted cheese meal.

Poured from bottle into Chimay glass. Very sweet and light beer,especially considering the percentage. A very good beer that I will enjoy again.

Light golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is lighty sweet, floral, yeasty and spicy in nicy typically Belgian style. Flavor is apples, pears, honey, lightly sweet and a touch spicy. Nice fizzy mouthfeel, a bit like champagne. A slight touch of banana anc cloves or maybe nutmeg from the yeast. Excellent Abbey Tripel!

Wow what a beer! Very complicated and ridiculously smooth for an 11% triple. Very floral, hints of caramel, and and a very smooth finish. Itís not overwhelming and just all around smooth. Great beer.
