De trappist van Westmalle ligt, net zoals zijn grote broer de Tripel, in de bovenste la, alleen al omdat dit streekbier onze regio op de internationale bierkaart zet. Het aroma is fris zoet en fruitig. De frisse citrus geur nodigt uit tot proeven. Het uiterlijk is donker bruin met en volle mokka kleurige schuimkraag. De smaak is eenvoudig doch perfect in balans. Het is een verfrissend bier waarvan de smaak balanceert tussen iets fruitig met en bittere toets die doet denken aan pompelmoes. De zoete smaak doet denken aan het zoete van in marsepein, doch blijft discreet op de achtergrond. Het mondgevoel is verfrissend, sprankelend bruisend en weinig klef waardoor de trappist van Westmalle gemakkelijk en smakelijk wegdrinkt. Aangezien dit bier ook een eerder beperkt alcohol volume heeft is dit een mooi en verfrissend alternatief voor de toch wel zware tripel. En superieur bier dat zich in een brede waaier aan omstandigheden laat voorschotelen.

750ml bottle. Pours deep reddish brown with off-white head. Lovely fruity, malty, slightly spicy dubbel, banana and prunes with yeast and candied sugar. A nice long slightly dry warming finish, great stuff!

Bottle. Pours clear opaque amber with thick medium beige/brown head. Aroma is packed with belgian yeast, candied sugar and caramel malts. Some dark dried fruits and toast. Slight banana. Taste is sweet, yeast, banana, dried fruits, malts and toast. Well hidden alcohol and really drinkable.

Wanderings878 (53) - ITALY - JUL 26, 2015
Bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro, schiuma beige cremosa e di media persistenza. L’aroma è subito protagonista, con banana, frutta matura, malto, anche luppolo e note di cioccolato. All’assaggio, coerentemente con l’aroma, abbiamo un sapore dolce che esalta il fruttato, così come la nota di cioccolato e l’evidente presenza del tipico lievito belga (banana). Il retrogusto è leggermente amaro, con un finale secco e persistente. Birra splendida.

Paigeturner (63) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Brown and tan head, yeast and breads, not to much candi or dark fruits as this style has some times. Finishes pretty thick with a banana finish.

mjakopa (232) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - JUL 20, 2015
Pours a dark brown colour with a fat head. Aroma is slightly caramel with hints of banana and a fruity background. Taste is a caramel body with a sweet backing and brown sugar notes. Aftertaste is dry, fruity with hints of chocolate at the very end. A very balanced, complex and not too strong dubbel, very drinkable.
