3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a typical cloudy medium golden hue with a big frothy white head - Huge retention and big lacing on my bottle - Nice bready spice note on the nose. This brew has a hop bitterness, but it is not overpowering. It is slightly sweet, but subdued - The spice note probably dominates, but it is not overpowering either. I find this one a bit boring , frankly. Perhaps that’s the feel I’m getting for Tripels in general.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Quelques bouteilles offertes par mon ami Yan. Mille mercis pour cet or liquide qui montre un col mousseux capable de tisser une superbe dentelle. Au nez, une exceptionnelle rencontre parfumée. Je découvre des notes de pain, des fleurs mielleuses, des effluves de fruits qui vont vers la banane en passant par les agrumes et des houblons fabuleusement poivrés. Sur les papilles, un alcool vaporeux et des fleurs piquantes, des houblons surannés et des malts pâles, du blé tendre, des écorces de citrons et des fruits jaunes et mûrs. En bouche, un corps fabuleusement souple et crémeux. En finale, une longue sensation chaude, épicée et sèche. Une bière simplement prodigieuse.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle. Poored in a trappist glass, hazy orange with a cotton head. Aroma is pear, nuts, grape fruits. First sip is extremely delightful, with a caramel taste, a slight bitter near the end. At first it’s fruity and then it becomes spicy and changes to a roasty and bittery taste, but Texture is oily, feels light considering the alcohol level. The complexity is here, fantastic and delicious beer!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Westmalle Tripel has a thin, white head and a hazy, bubbly, yellow-gold appearance, with a few tiny, white specks suspended throughout. The aroma is of full, strong, pungent, sweet bread, with a slight sourness. Taste is of stinging yeast, peppery, banana, sweet bread, a good amount of harsh bitterness, and sugar. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and one really does pick up the alcohol with this- think brandy. Westmalle Tripel finishes mostly dry, biting, and wonderful. A challenging, outstanding beer. RJT

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours golden, sparkling liquid with stable white head. Aroma is very fruity, namely grapes, pears, apples. Also some bread and hay. Taste starts on honey-like sweetness and continues into very pleasure bitter spices with very alcoholic background. Beer has full body with oily texture. Average carbonation with long dry and spicy finish. Very complex piece from aroma and taste side, memorable experience.

750ml served into a Karmeliet tulip
Bottled on 25/08/13
A - Pours honey golden with sediment floating around. Giant 3 finger head that’s bone-white in color and is very slow to sink and never dies completely. Chunks of 3D lacing around the top of the glass.
S - Tangy fruity esters. Pears, apples, grapes, taffy, wheat bread, damp hay, banana liquor, pepper, various unknown spices.
T - Spiced yeast, pears, tangy taffy, acidic and grapes, muted stone fruit. It grows spicier toward the middle with pepper and coriander. Thick pilsener malt, grassy with a citrus bite toward the end. Finishes spicy and dry.
M - Moderate prickly carbonation, heavy side of medium, alcohol is evident but welcomed, dry finish.
Super complex nose. The flavor is is very layered as well but does not match the nose.
I know it sounds cliche, but complex is the main word to describe this beer.
