4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
In a long string of Belgian ales, I’ve finally had one that comes from, well, Belgium. While I wouldn’t go so far as to say the Belgian ales have a superior taste, it’s hard to argue against their physical beauty. Westmalle’s Tripel is sublime in the looks department. Golden body with pure white suds. Some lovely aromas here, too. Fruit, earth, malt, candy, and booze. Sound fantastic, right? It is. Banana, grass, malt sugar, clove, citrus - lots of highly palatable complexity. Mouthfeel is velvety smooth. Is it weird to say this beer feels good in your mouth? Because it does. Whatever. I’m not ashamed. If you love the lighter-colored, brighter Belgian exports, get yourself this one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful, deep and mighty aroma, full of malts nad fruity notes. It’s slightly hazy, golden color beer with nice white head. It’s full body, very smooth and highly carbonated beer. But this carbonation feels great, there is a lot of micro bubbles which are fizzing on the tongue. In taste full malty flavour, with great fruity notes and pleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. Alcohol is noticeable. Great classic. Must try.

This is a good tripel. Easy to drink, good appearance. However, personally, I do prefer beers with hops more evident.

Taste is similar of bread, some Belgian yeast, banana, subtle cloves, slight vanilla, pepper, lemon, a little apricot and spice. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, slightly tart, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. A great example of a Belgian tripel. Fruity, spicy and the unmistakeable Belgian banana, clove yeast flavours. Great.

Not my favorite Aroma. But it is good. Lots of cereal, citrus, fruity and hoppy aroma. Normal Foam, is a bit more carbonatated than I would wanted. I felt it very dry.
