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.

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.

Bottle. Peanut at Dilly Deli highly recommended this tripel and I was extrememly excited but disappointed as I have had tripels that I have thought much more of - Chouffe, La Fin du Monde. Still a very good belgian with a ton of character, but I probably wont repeat knowing what else is available.

Bottle. Massive white head covers a straw colored body that is a little cloudy. Aromas: apples, cloves, yeast, bread, a little citrus, etc. Its not an overpowering nose, but theres a lot going on. Lots of spice in the finish is the first comment. Coriander and cloves take the show. There is a bit of a sweet sugar baby note up front. There are moments when I think that it comes off as a bit watery, but then that banana clove finish picks up and all my concerns are gone.

I was excited to try this beer, as Ive heard a great deal about the Westmalle brewery. I found this beer to be good, but to be honest found myself making unfavorable comparisons to some other tripels Iike Allagash Tripel Reserve and Tripel Karmeliet due to a very mild flavor and a bit of wateriness in the mouthfeel. A bottle I picked up from a display at Consumer Beverage in Hales Corners. This beer pours a hazy dark yellow with lots of soft secondary-fermentation produced head. Smells tripel-ish with some clove notes and lots of coriander. Flavor is a bit like a white wine up front, with some spiciness on the back end. Not as full-flavored as other tripels Ive enjoyed like Tripel Karmeliet, Allagash, and Victory Golden Monkey. Mouthfeel is quite soft, but a bit thin up-front.

Pours hazy orange. Light fruity and flowery aroma with tones of spices, mostly clove and coriander Also some orange peel and yeast. Malty and bready undertones. Full malty mouthfeel. Medium sweet and light bitter flavour with tones of spices and fruit. Elegant fruit acid dry finish. Well carbonated. Medium to full body. A very good tripel.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2007
Honestly, I expected more from this Trappist beer. Strong alcohol nose well hidden in the flavor. Small white head and pale clouded body. Fizzy to the lips with sour yeast finish and hints of spicy fruitiness.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2008 Second Rating 7/22/2008. 11.2 oz. bottle. I felt like I needed to re-visit this beer since I wasnt all that crazy about it the first time and the average is significantly higher than my rating. This was a bit of a gusher when I opened the bottle. A very slow pour into my Chimay chalice revealed an antique gold beer with a large linen white head that lasted until mid-glass and left surprisingly little lace. The aroma was mostly yeast and alcohol with hints of spice and lemon. The flavor is again yeast with a strong flavor of alcohol and a stronger spice presence than in the aroma. There is a definite and distracting alcohol burn at the finish. No change in my original rating,

Original Rating 4/4/2007. 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy honey gold with a thin white head that lasted through most of the glass. Light but pleasant aroma of yeast, green apples and a bit of alcohol. The flavor was also a bit on the light side I thought with green apples, yeast, and a bit of lemon present in the flavor. Mouthfeel was a bit fizzy. Noticeable alcohol presence. Not as good as its reputation.

Fin (9460) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2007
Bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Another one of those beers that Id had so often but never got around to rating so I thought Id get reacquainted with this old friend. Poured a golden colour with just some haze there, and a large white frothy head. Nose was quite yeasty and with a definite spiciness. The taste is fruity and spicy with hints of clove and coriander but the alcohol is a touch harsh and whilst this is a quality beer it seemed harsher and a little rougher round the edges than Id remembered.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Duvel tulip glass, cloudy yellow with a medium beige head. The aroma had notes of pear, apple, citrus and the typical tripel yeast. The taste was sweet and smooth with notes of spice and citrus fruits. Creamy and buttery mouthfeel. Nice carbonation. The finish was slightly bitter with just a touch of alcohol bite. A bit dry as well. One of the better tripels Ive had.
