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.

11.2oz bottle, 02/09/06-not sure if this is a "best by" or "born on," but I fear it is the former. Pours a pretty yellow golden--hazy and chunky--wit a medium white frothy head. Aroma of fizzy carbonation, yeast, bananas, green apples, pepper, and some sweet malts. Taste follows aroma well. Very dry finish, though not really any bitterness. Some alcohol burn noted. Medium bodied, fairly fizzy. Very good!

375 ml bottle. Hazy orange with very large head that lasted the glass. Aromas were crisp lemon zest and sweet pear/apple. Flavors were very light and fruity. Very Tripel in nature, but very good. Nice finish. Good Tripel

Gold in colour and well carbonated. Pleasing aromas of MacIntosh apple, pear, and a bit of spicy yeast. The fruit flavors become more lemon like on the palate, and mix well with the light malt and mild grassy hop notes. Surprisingly bitter finish... with notes of lemon rind at the end. A bit too dry for the style IMO (if that’s even possible). Not bad, but could be better. Merci Lubiere!

Pours an ugly mix of yellow, brown and orange with a decent white head. Fuller bodied than many tripels, this is dry and yet very malty. Caramel, roast malt type of mid-palate thing going on. Spicey and also a strong alcohol presence like a shot of grain vodka was added. Interesting and more demanding than other tripels I’ve had.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - APR 16, 2006
Slightly hazy gold with a medium, fizzy, collapsing white head. Sour, yeasty, faintly spicy aroma. Quite effervescent, to the point of being unpleasant for my taste. Tastes of hay, yeast, and bitter citrus. Finishes sour with ametallic bitterness. I wasn’t impressed.

The Westmalle has a bitter finish and much more carbonation than I like. It is still a good beer but not up to par with some of its competitors.

Never rated this yet?? Shit I have had a few of these and it beats a lot of the so-called tripels out there. Lots of over ripe pears and coriander. Nose is a little more intriguing than the taste tho’. Still sweet and fruity on the tongue.

Dark yellow nearly orange with a nice fluffy white head. At first the smells scared me, spice, coriander, and oranges...i hate all the above when not done properly. But one sip and I was very amazed. They pulled off a great balance of fruits, spices, and a nice bitter taste too. Fantastic...I think this is a new fav from the trappists.

Hoppy Belgian beer makes me happy, slightly dissapointed when bar advertised having Westy 12 and then said, "no, sorry" or something equivalent in italian, but when you’re settling for this, are you really settling? Pilgrims!

cloudly yellow with white head. Very spicy and strong tripel. Lively carbonation. Filling and has a long warm finish!
