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.

The mother of all tripels. A great-looking orange brew with lots of creamy foam, a characteristic aroma of fruits and an impressive malt taste for a beer this light coloured. Westmalle tripel is one of those beers that will be gaining on you in the long run. When I first tried (some 4 years back) I was not convinced, but slowly it has been growing on me... If you´re only going to taste one tripel tonight - try this!

A decent tripel, but I found the flavors to be too subtle. Cloudy golden color with a white head.

Hmmmm, very nice, pours beautifully thick cloudy orange/tan with a slowly dissipating head. Initially sharply bitter/dry, but as the palate adjusts, the flavor smooths out to a yeasty citrus. I really liked it, not excessively complex, but the more I drank the more complex it tasted.

bobaidan (527) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Cloudy brownish-tellow in color. Fruity aroma typical of a triple. Flavor is fruity spicy. For a 9.5% ale, there is very little alcohol flavor. The finish is dry, with a slight apricot flavor trail. A very fine ale

Pours a beautiful cloudy yellow color with a thick white head that lasts. Lots of apple and citrus in the aroma. Spice comes out in the flavor to compliment the aforementioned fruit. Fizzy mouthfeel but not overbearing. A real thirst quencher that has an intangible quality that pushes it from good to great.

Pours a mostly clear and brilliant light gold with a sparkling head that quickly fades but never goes away and with a nice amount of lacing. Orange and Tangerine heavy in the nose when swirled to let some of the carbon monoxide you also get a burring sweetness. There are hints of orange peel and an earthy spiciness that come mostly from the yeast. I’m glad to know I can pick it up more often(for now)..

This beer pours a cloudy yellow with a white head that laces down the sides. Smells of sour oranges. Flavor is very light considering the heaftyness of this beer and has flavors of sour oranges and spices. This is a well made beer and very drinkable! Cheers!

Nice pour from a bottle with a rich lasting head that laces all the way down the glass. Sharp nose with bitter orange and some peppery yeast. Well balanced flavors with just enough sweet to balance the citrus. This is an excellent beer and even still refreshing for such a big ale. Gob bless the monks.

Bottle, from Riley’s. Poured a clear straw-yellow. Nose of sweet carmel and yeast, with an almost cherry-tree smell on the finish. Very warm and medium to heavy bodied in my mouth. This beer continues to grow on me as it warms up, revealing more flavors including a nice blend of hoppy flavors.
