4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 33cl bottle. Clear orange-gold with a creamy, lasting head. solid aroma of banana, yeast, spice, and alcohol. The flavor is spicy and yeasty with a lot of alcohol, which makes it pretty dry. Iím digging the dryness; makes it very drinkable. Medium body and smooth carbonation. This is very easy and nice to drink, Tripel isnít my favorite abbey style, but this is pretty tasty. (3.7) rerate: Draught at The Trappist. Huge fruity pineapple any yeast aroma. Fruity yet dry flavor. This really stood out this time. Great beer.

Golden and clear with minimal white head. Aroma is cidery sweet with a hint of spice. Intensely fizzy mouthfeel makes flavors hard to place. Perhaps this covers taste flaws. This product is really nothing special despite it ratings.

Great tripel grain beer, best taste comes when drank in the original glass. White head with a beautiful golden base. I simply love this beer with its nice fruity taste. The beer tastes quite light aswell! Recommended to all!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of Belgian yeasts, wheat, banana, spices, some faint apple and pear in the background as it warms. For me, the palate was a spice bomb. The base brew, while strong and solid in the mouth, objectively well constructed, lacked any real character for me. Instead, unearthly amounts of spices were added to give it some flavor. Maybe the spices covered up whatever flavor there was under there, but all I got out of it was a pretty bland beer loaded with spice. Not bad, surely, not weak at all or anything, but nothing stunning.

Pours a clear golden yellow with off white head. Strong aromas of Belgian yeast and bananas. Sweet malty flavor with a hoppy finish. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. One of the best tripels I have tasted. Excellent!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2010 Bottle. Pours a murky yellow with a fairly sizeable white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, some light fruits (apple, pear, citrus). Tastes of Belgian yeast, spices, and wheat. Strong mouthfeel, but I felt that the taste was one dimensional. I didnít really care for this one.
Update 2/13/10: Lots of Belgian spices in this one in the aroma and flavor with some light fruits in the background but the spices definitely dominate. The malt base is just not as strong as the other top-notch tripels. A decent tripel but not at the top of my list.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Bottle: the aroma is both yeasty, spicy and herbal, freshly ground black peper, sage, mint, coriander, cardboard, strawberry flavored bubble gum, some hay, very complex on that department, flavor wise itís malty sweet(banana like) with some herbal hops, weak alcohol notes, weak vinous notes and a nice dry finish, the overall flavor is quite delicate and quite simple compared to the aroma, itís an easy drinking medium bodied nice triple.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful clear golden color, smallish white head. Good, but not amazing. Iíd almost characterize it as a light tripel, with a crisp finish.
