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.

Pours hazy golden with a huge head. Decent malty/banana hinted aroma. Taste is excellent. Strong fruity taste, malt, hint of banana, yeast and alcahol. Noticable bitterness. Plenty of carbonation, full bodied mouthfeel. Very decent beer

An honest beer brewed from prime ingredients. More than eighty years after its creation by the famous master brewer Hendrik Verlinden (1866-1940) Westmalle Tripel is still one of the best tripel beers ever. By far my favourite Trappist beer, IMHO much better than Westvleteren.

Sterke triple met een bittere smaak. Naar mijn mening overheerst dit bittere te veel en daarom een matige triple.

McSherman (278) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2015
Gelb orange leicht opal mit schönem weißen Schaum. Geruch säuerlich fruchtig, wie Cidre. Sehr herb, bitter. Auch geschmacklich erinnert das Bier an trockenen Apfelwein. Gut!

Wanderings878 (12) - ITALY - MAY 20, 2015
Bottiglia. Colore dorato, pallido, con abbondante schiuma bianca di media persistenza. Aroma eccezionale, frutta dolce, banana. Gusto mediamente dolce e straordinariamente appagante, ben equilibrato con la leggera amarezza comunque presente. Finale duraturo, che lascia in bocca un’ottima sensazione. Alcol molto ben nascosto. Fantastica.

Rubin77 (40) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2015
Foam: nice white with lingering. Colour: hazy golden. Aroma: yeasty, spicy, phenols like banana, clove, flowery, citrusy. Taste: sweet, with green pepper and phenols, grassy, herbal, orange, hoppy, bitter, alcohol but well hidden, full body, medium to high carbonation, one of the best triple I have ever had.

bewyder (203) - FRANCE - MAY 18, 2015
Dorée pâle non trouble, une bouche sur amertume prononcée, avec une pointe sèche, un ensemble assez costaud pour une très bonne bière. Peut être un alcool un peu trop pesant sur la longueur. Trouvable dans certaines grandes surfaces et chez Léon de Bruxelles en France.

Even out of a goblet, there was much aroma. Maybe it was too cold. The appearance was as expected. It looked like an unfiltered pils or original hefewiezen. The taste had a lot of similarities to a pils, with the bitterness of the hops. The finish was beyond the DIPA bitterness. I didn’t really enjoy that, but that is this beer. The palate was nice. It had a heaviness and creaminess to it. I know many people rate this beer excellent. I will definitely drink it again, just not that often.

Uma trappist sensacional. Apesar da cor clara, que lembra mais uma lager, tem sabor forte e marcante.

Une bière vraiment succulente. Une couleurs très claire par rapport au degré d’alcool, une amertume assez forte sur une base pure mais enrichie par le travail d’une souche de levure de haute qualité. Un classique!!
