A strong, dry and spicy trappist ale. The product of a secondary fermentation lasting 5 weeks. This is a complex ale with a fruity aroma and a nice nuanced hop scent. It is soft and creamy in the mouth, with a bitter touch carried by the fruity aroma. An exceptional ale, with a great deal of finesse and elegance, and with a splendid long after taste.

11.2 oz bottle. Hazy golden color, with a thick frothy head. Heavy lacing. Aroma is sweet, with a tinge of citrus. The flavor is tart, with a nice spicy and malty flavor. Alcohol is only slightly present in the taste, which is surprising since it’s 9.5%.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2007
0.33 l bottle. Deep golden color. Fruity, phenolic and malty aroma with apple, herbal hops and honey. The same attributes are present in the taste along with some tartness and firm balanced bitterness. Fruity-spicy flavors are quite complex! Quite fizzy.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Rated 7/11/07. Pours a hazy yellow-gold color with a big frothy head that reduces to a thin film. Leaves behind a patchy spider-web of lacing. Aroma is sweet and sour citrus, yeast, and spices. Flavor is like candied orange peels, sweetened lemon, corriander, nutmeg, yeast and malt. Body is syrupy, typical of a tripel. Not my favorite style, by any means, but this is a very well crafted beer.

Pours a golden yellow color that looks as though it was sitting in a swamp. Decent white head that caressed the top of the glass. The aroma is nothing like the taste. It’s like the bastard-child of the brew, it’s there but doesn’t quite fit in. Tart, malty aroma with a faint sweet approach towards the end. Nice mouth feel. The taste totally threw me off on this because of the appearance. Big, bold, spicy, malty, alcohol taste that has hints of cherries. Stout-ass brew that I’m glad I have access to so I can pick up some more.

11.2oz bottle. I have been saving this one along with the Westmalle Dubbel for a special occasion and what better occasion than my 500th rating to try them both? Poured into a heavy glass beer stein (oh well, so much for class) It’s a beautiful pour, with slightly hazy light golden beer and a big thick white head that stays and laces everywhere. Aroma is faint, but appealing; hoppy, slightly alcoholic, and pale malts. Flavor is really excellent.. wonderful triple flavors instantly light up your tongue. I love triples. This one is deeply complex, tending to the dry side, but with a smooth malt richness that is very satisfying. Interesting to sip and ponder. Alcohol is well represented and to good effect, but completely integrated into the flavors. A pleasant, well rounded bitterness appears in the finish. Delicious and amazing.

Dark gold color with little aroma. A little bitter for my taste, but a long solid flavor carries into a pleasant aftertaste.

Westmalle Tripel just a fantastic beer! The burnt sugar notes from the fire under the kettles is detectable and gives it a great taste. I would absolutely buy this again!!

Hazy gold, spritzy, aroma of orange blossom and quinine, lime peel, a little kerosene. Seems to have some body when it hits the tongue but quickly melts/vaporizes leaving behind an excellent spruce-like flavor with orange pith bitterness, some toasty sourdough retro nasal, cleans out the sinuses a little and leaves a fresh feeling. Still one of the best!.

Glazed9884 (207) - USA - JUN 30, 2007
Pours a bubbly amber, too much carbonation. Smells strong of alcohol. Strong alcohol mouthfeel/alcohol burn. Besdies alcohol taste is somewhat watered down. As beer goes on alcohol becomes much better, much smoother. Unfortunately the finish is another blast of alcohol. The middle of the beer is worth drinking, not the start or finish though.
