COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - APR 22, 2007
Bottle at the Bierodrome, London. Golden with one finger white head. Nose is banana, apple, some bubblegum hints, as well as some varied spices bordering clove and coriander - real nice. Slight alcohol presence in the nose as well. Taste is upfront slightly warming, with strong orange and coriander, clove, banana. The finish is surprisingly dry, after some lingering spice. High carbonation; excellent, one of the best tripels around.

If Duvel didnít exist, Iíd probably give my vote to the Westmalle Tripel., especially when served in the right glass. Tastes quite good after a Duvel, but definitely not a beer for all-night drinking. Otherwise you wonít see the dawn !

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2007
Pours a hazy yellowish color with a small head and a little lacing. This beer has a nice malt and hop aroma with some citrusy undertones. Very nice taste with spices, cinnamon, hops and malt. There is a great mouthfeel with a warming aftertaste and a nice warming alcohol feel to it. EXCELLENT Triple.

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2007
Wow, this was fabulous. The most well-balanced tripel Iíve ever had. Has the citrus appeal but is just so damn smooth youíll never even taste the alcohol

downender (7843) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2007
Bottle. Subdued orange colour with a tight white head. Lots of aroma - spices, coriander & bread dough. Flavours of citrus and cinnamon. Alcohol was rather pronounced in the finish. Good, but no world-beater.

Tasted from bottle. Light malty and hoppy aroma, with a HUGE creamy white head that hangs around for the last drop. Slightly cloudy. Long lasting finish with a creamy texture.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2007
looks and smells like a spiced apple juice..loads of particulate floating in a golden body with a fluffy white head. the aroma is very apple filled with some grass and yeast...flavor is very much the same...all and all this is a very good tripel..i usually like a little more spicyness, but it is definitelya very enjoyabe brew.
