COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A tripel, as solid as a castle. A full bodied beer, brewed with Belgian hops, to enjoy quietly, with a powerful, distinctive flavour: flowery, hop bitterness and soft alcohol.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, corn, sugar, hops, yeast, antioxidant (ascorbic acid).

from bottle. pours a pale yellow, slightly hazy colour with one-finger head that quickly disappears. quite spicy aroma with belgian yeast and some lemon and pear notes. fizzy carbonation, medium body and oily texture. sweet but heavily artificial fruit flavours mixed with a sharp alcoholic note. and i do not like the addition of ascorbic acid - there is no place for such substances in beer in my opinion!

It has a light amber color with a white head. The smell has some fruitiness in it but it is mainly a smoky spice aroma. It reminds me of beef jerky. At the first sip, I noticed the same spice. It also has some citrus and malt flavor. The alcohol is strong, but not to harsh on the mouth. It is pretty good stuff. Not the best Abbey Tripel, but far from the worst.

In a chilled mug...Deep gold with a white, quickly disappearing head. Moderate aroma of sweet corn, alcohol, and a fruit difficult to pin down. Grape perhaps? Taste is ever so slightlyl spiced, very sweet and full of alcohol. Too sweet. Not enough character to balance the sweet or the alcohol. Wait...the 11% just kicked in, telling me this beer is not so disappointing after all! But I’ll stay with my sober assessment.

unibaren (154) - 8000 Århus C, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2007
Spicy and yeasty aroma with lots of alcohol sweetness. Clear golden colour, with lots of carbonation. Head is white and lasts surprisingly long for a beer with such a high alcohol contents. Tast corresponds well with the aroma eventhough the alcohol contents is even more dominating. Falls somewhere in between "to much alcohol" and "pretty good"

An interesting mix of flavors coming through with a sweetness that balances well against the hops. The bready yeast also mixes well against the citrus. I like the way the combination of flavors enhance the alcohol.

Poured a hazy golden orange with a small head with very little lacing around the glass. The only reason why I rated the appearence of this beer so low was due to the nickle sized globs of what looked like trub at the bottom of the bottle. Was very careful not to pour any in my drink. The aroma is tipical of a belgium triple and can detect citrus, banana, spice and candi sugar. Flavor is full bodied and has a nice malty start with a dry, alcohol finish. Can definitely taste the alcohol in this one but not bad.

bottle, golden colourd with medium head. A nice triple with lots of tastes, though a tad sweet.

seynie (148) - Tienen, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2014
Hazy Gold with a nice top, a bit creamy. Alcohol dominates a bit too much; I understand that it is because of the high alcohol % but why have such a high level if it only dominates other aromas? Finish is rather short if not for the alcohol. Bitterness is OK

Reddish-brown hue--almost opaque. Nice heavy aroma with some sweetness coming through. Taste is strong but not as harsh as I’d expect from an 11% Belgian. Nice

One of best tripel i ever drunk... Classic tripel color, aoma and taste are sweet and fruity (Peach...) , the body is smooth, and the carbonation is soft, one very good after dinner beer!
