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.

9.5% ABV Pours with a nice thick head. Color is a dark honey, light amber. Has a very pleasant wheaty nose. Very wholeseome and pleasing. Nice sharp alcoholic first mouthful. Very pleasing malty, beery flavor that vanishes all too quickly into a cloud of ethanol. There are pleasing highlights of surprisingly herbaceous hoppy notes. It is a trippel after all and I personally am beginning to think that anything more than a dubbel has too much alcohol to facilitate a proper enjoyment of the complexity of the beer or the finer tasting notes. I would like to have tasted the toasted wheat or the nice clean hops. It’s just my palate I guess.

On parle ici de finesse. Autant elle est facile à boire qu’elle est complexe. Je devrai passé plus de temps à la déguster, mais je me souviens d’une bière avec les éléments suivants: fruité, sec, gomme balloune, franche, douce et trop bonne, Sur cinq tripel dans une dégustation à l’aveugle, c’était ma favorite.

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 (286) - 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 (17) - 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 (53) - 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.
