4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer was nice sunrise. I knew I liked the Tripel. The previous sample I had I didn’t like to much. This time I was able to see it for what it is: A really nice beer. I pours a nice clear dark red with an off white solid head with sticky lacing. The nose and the flavor mainly come from the yeast. Loads of dried fruit and spices with a creamy texture and smooth but slightly dry finish. What a wonderful beer.

Very dark red with a short-lived but somewhat foamy beige head, some lacing. Vineous, plummy aroma with some notes of fresh-cut grass at first. Dark fruits and a bit of chocolate show up. Rich, malty but dry with a tiny bit of sourness, this is an outstanding Trappist ale.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 deep, deep cloudy dark ruby mahaogany colour with a lively rich foamy off white fawn head which dissipates but still laces. Rich and fruity. Complex, full mouthfeel. Caramel/berries/malty biscuits are all in there. Surprised so many on here say that alcohol is well hidden. I thought that it was well obvious. Thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely not a session brew, but - duh! - guess you know that.

Bottle - Poured a a very hazy dark reddish brown amber in color with a foamy tannish head. Aroma is full of sweet malt and fruity... cherries and dark fruit. Flavor is sweet and malty with flavors of caramel, vanilla, cherries, dark fruit and very faint of the distinctive Belgian yeastiness. Not as much yeast flavor as I would have expected from a Belgian. Quite thick in the mouth. Some bitterness in the finish. A really fine beer...

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 I think I was a bit tough on the Westmalle triple, but this was definitely quite enjoyable. Lovely aroma with a malty taste and a sweet finish

This is a very nice beer. It has all of the maltyness with just the right amout of hops. All of this blends into a delicious product where one aspect of the product does not overpower any other. If teamwork had a taste, this would be it.
