Trappistenbier (52) - BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2008 I tried it last weekend at excellent Belgian coastal city Ostend beer pub Botteltje, and will not hide my amazement about this new beer from brewery Strubbe. It is clear that brewmaster Marc Strubbe has made a masterpiece ! West-Flanders Ichtegem based brewery Strubbe is doing very well lately. With new beers like Keyte Tripel, Wittoen Tripel, and the wonderful oak aged Ichtegem’s Oud Bruin, things going the good direction ! On top of all this delicious new beers, a new brown Trappist-alike brew has been introduced. And what an introduction this is ! Keyte Oosténdse Dobbel Tripel at 9.2 vol% has become one of my favorit beers today. This abbey style Keyte Oosténdse Dobbel Tripel can easily be classified alongside other masterpieces like Rochefort 10, Westvleteren 12, Achel Extra, etc... The creamy beige head is just phenomenal. Nice dark-red colors. Bottle refermented, non-pasteurized, non-filtered. Again the proof that tripel style is not always a blond colored beer. Nosing the glass gives amazing Trappist appearances: candi sugar, caramel maltiness, and those typical flowery aromas. Hops are just perfect balanced ! Tasting confirms the nose. In addition, I notice that most welcome creamy mouth feeling. This, in combination with the softness of the beer, makes it to order a second consumption in no time. People, this is an angel pissing on your tongue !!!!

Have had this three times at Sergio’s in Louisville (tap). Each time, it is preceded by other great brews (Black Albert, Bernardus Christmas, Olfabrikken Porter, etc.), with the expectation that it won’t hold up. It isn’t as strong as some, but it makes up for it with perfect balance. Full taste that is caramel and grainy malt, balanced by mild bitter in the finish. It drinks as well as any brew I’ve ever had...in fact, I’m heading the 90 miles to Louisville again tomorrow.....

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2008 het robijnkleurige bier die ik nu proefde is ook al 2 jaar oud. De trots van de Oostendse Bierjutters heeft een zacht zoete en fruitige smaak. Een lichte toets van de foeder komt meer tot zijn recht in de afdronk. Een der beste bieren die ik dit jaar heb geproeft. Met zijn caramelaroma heeft hij een vrij moutachtige smaak en de lichte zurigheid die vele trappisten kenmerkt.

I really enjoyed this beer. It’s a dark beer with a strong sweet flavor. Not much bitterness and a pleasant aftertaste.

A very sweet and lovely strawberry beer. With a sweet touch without extreme sugar taste, but candy sugar and creamy, very soft.
