This is a wonderful beer that impresses me every time I drink it. It is true that it does not have the funkiness of the Karmeleit, but it does bring quite a few twists and turns to the table. When I first tried it I thought I had opened a quad instead, but it grew on me as I continued my glass and had won me over by its conclusion. While this is not a textbook example of the style it certainly has its charms and should be picked up instead of drinking the same old tripel over and over.

Aroma: Apricot, lemon pee. Appearance: Hazy, orange/gold with small white head. Flavor: Malty with some marzipan notes, boozy. Palate: Full bodied with a fairly aggressive carbonation. Overall: A nice but middle of the road tripel.

McTapps (6194) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2013
Unclear light amber colour with steady creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of ripe hops and Belgian yeast. Taste of spicy, yet dull hops, light barley, grass, lemon fruits, hay and sweet blood oranges. Flowery and fruity hints. Enjoyed it a lot, but there are many other Abbey Tripels I enjoyed more.

MichaelAwesome (6157) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2013
Thick, very heavy with a huge head. Lots of alc in the background mixed in the aroma with vanilla, ripe fruits and caramel. Gets better with a rising temperature. Came as a stranger and stayed as a friend. Typical belgian triple with lot of secret sweetness. Nice.

Good example of the style. Blond with a lot of white foam. Medium carbonation. Fruity beer with sweet hints and bitter dry aftertaste.

Very nice aroma of fruit with some sweet malt. The flavor has the fruit and malt but has a nice peppery bite to balance. Extremely dry and refreshing. Quite nice for the summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark golden with a heavy, white one finger head. Yeasty nose, nice carbonation, light fruity notes and not too sweet. Didn’t notice much of an alcohol burn. Excellent version of the style.
