Maredsous 10 abv ? Maredsous triple ? Cette belle annonce nous fait découvrir une triple de couleur blond profond, à la limite de l’ambré, avec une mousse blanc cassé à beige qui nappe valablement le liquide caché dessous. Nous chercherons pourtant à l’atteindre et à savoir ce qu’il vaut !!! Mon breuvage avait d’ailleurs largement dépassé l’âge de la retraite (2 ans de plus), ce qui constitue toujours un défi pour une blonde et donc pour une triple. Mais qu’à cela ne tienne, il restait quelques fines bulles et des arômes qui s’étaient développés sur les fruits confits et le blé mûr. Le volume est soyeux à souhait (une vraie tapisserie de velours). Puis la 1ère bouche se révèle avec une très belle finesse et des accents de pelure d’orange. La 2ème a la densité des blés à la moisson. La 3ème nous livre des prunes, des fruits d’automne et un léger piquant sur la langue. La levure fait son travail sans rechigner. La longueur est correcte. La finale ressort en équilibre, et nous transmet toutes les nuances précédentes. Donc on ne peut critiquer cette blonde (triple quand même, merci) sans lui concéder d’être de caractère, faite par un brasseur exceptionnel (Duvel), à l’équilibre bien pensé entre rondeur et piquant amer, sans aucun excès. Très belle arrière-bouche dès la seconde moitié du verre.

Incredible beer. This is in my opinion the best of the trappist beers out there. It is bready and citrusy and just perfect. This is not for the average miller light drinker. This folks is a beast of a beer. Ready to punch you in face with so much complexity you weren’t even ready for. the taste is smoky and sweet and just amazing. Meredsous is it. Try their Brune too you won’t go wrong.

This is a smooth Belgium ale without the sweetness of such greats as the St. Bernarus. Great palate and nose. Floral initially with hints of fruit. Great beer!

Earthy aroma from the Belgian yeast. Strong hints of pepper in this bad boy. Head retention is flawless but clarity could be improved upon. Nice drink on a chill Sunday afternoon.

I tried this beer on August 10, 2007 at the Biermarket in Toronto. The beer was poured into a glass with a small white head that dissipated quickly. The beer was a cloudy orange-brown colour. The aroma was a strong yeasty aroma with some perfumy florals. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. The taste has hints of malt and bread with no bitterness whatsoever.

This smells like crisp freshly cut Delicious apples; wonderful. Looks nice. The flavor is also crisp and citrusy but lets a little bit of the alcohol through. Overall an excellent tripel.

Malty with notes of burnt toast, caramel, caramelized fruit, beets, sugar, and spices. Brilliant hazy amber (like butterscotch) with creamy lacing off-white head. Medium chewy body with medium-high carbonation. Silky. Starts sweet and sugary, with mild acidity and no bitterness. Fruity and sugary malts remain to finish, with musky grains and alcohol ending. Some bitterness comes along in aftertaste - a little drying, but for the most part, it’s a sweet and carbonic mixture. Definite alcohol presence. Pretty complex flavor. A very nice beer.
