A very good Belgian with some interesting flavor notes in the spicy malt. Amazingly smooth at the beginning, but seems to develop a little bitterness as it warms.

A good triple. Again I repeat, age this brew. I buy the new ones and the old ones. The age does this beer well. The newer versions are not as appetizing unless they are allowed to age.

Not that flavorful for a tripel. Spicy and fruity flavors seemed subdued. That said, its still a pretty damn good beer.

Now this was interesting! The first thing that I picked up on was this strange (to me) flavor of cloves. I liked it! With this being the first tripel that I tried, I do not really know how to describe it, other than I was very taken by the complexity of this Belgian. Nice an thick, but it has a decieving taste. It changed on me so quickly! My favorite part of the beer was when it passed over my palate and I blew air out of my mouth, the entirety of my mouth was suddenly cooled by the prescence of alcohol (though the abv is not high, the beer did not mask the alcohol as well as other beers do. But that’s not bad, for me :})

This is a thick malty beer, with a touch of hops. It seems like a typical Belgian beer from what I can tell. I did notice the alcohol taste in the flavor which in general I don’t like but seems to work here. It is a more mild version of some Belgians I have had.

The best from this ex-Trappist brewery. Rich, smooth, competely carbonationless body and decent flavor.
