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.

Kolor słomkowy. Piana biała, bardzo gęsta, łądnie oblepia szkło jak opada. Aromat świeżych owoców, a po pewnym czasie końskiej derki. W smaku owoce i karmel. Odpowiednio zbalansowane. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Bardzo udany tripel. Lepszy niż Chimay.

Gold color with thick white head. Citrus smell with a hint of fruit. Taste is the same but you will feel the alcohol going down. Nice beer, but not my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours golden with a white head. Sweet tasting with hints of spice with good balance between the two. Probably my favorite from Westmalle.

0,33L bottle, BB 10.10.2015. Pours hazy golden with huge white head. The head stays. Very nice lacing. Aroma is fresh fruits, sour, citrus, and spices. Taste: fresh fruits, sweetness, orange, yeast, spices, alcohol, and malt. Finish is fruity with nice alcohol burn and citrus bitterness. Alcohol is well constrained for the ABV. Overall: this is really great beer. I generally prefer dubbels over tripels, but this may be one of the exceptions.

Poistomyynnistä. Trappistieliittiä, mutta vähän liian vahva. Vinksun kanssa isän luona. Sahdin huntua.

g_georgiou (143) - CYPRUS - MAR 16, 2014
Hazy orange body with a nice white head. Citrus is prevalent in the aroma but also a bit yeast and spice. Taste is quite well balanced. Sweet, bitter, sour, but not overly in any of those categories. Medium body, slick texture. Very enjoyable.

pours clear straw with a fluffy white head that lasts. Nice lacing. Aroma is peppery with a bit of clove and citrus, maybe a little banana as well. Taste is very similar to the nose with almost a liquorice like finish. Big stong mouthfeel, tingly and warming. good beer!
