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.

It pours gorgeous ochre with a slight reddish tint; the head is off-white and thick, like whipped egg-whites. The aroma has notes of: almonds, blood-orange jam, Belgian Candi-sugar, alcohol, barnyard-funk, coriander, and rye-bread. The taste is medium tart and finishes medium bitter and dry; there are notes of: coriander, sour-dough bread, blood-oranges, alcohol, lemon-pith, and Belgian Candi-sugar. The palate is full-bodied, medium carbonations, big mouth-feel (foamy), with a medium finish. Overall it was a phenomenal Tripel. This beer shows that a Tripel is not just a watered down Quadrupel .

Sometimes you should go back to basics. Everynow and then I come back to this one. Beutiful tripel with a fantastic white head. Powerful yeast and malt aroma. Really balanced taste. Refreshing and yet very intresting beer. I know this gets even better with age.

bartlebier (3191) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 27, 2016
Multiple 75cl, 33cl and draught pours over the years, most recently 75cl shared at Bier mit Stil 1: Tripel@Bierhandlung Feb 2016. - Bref: a Belgian Hefeweizen on jenever steroids. - The banana, clove and fusels are strong in this style-defining tripel launched by the monks in 1932 taking their supposed cue from Slaghmulder. - Remains dry, while warming and oily, transporting baked banana flambéd with jenever, warming in the throat, mouthfilling liked spiced nectar. Late white peppery hops and a straight astringency which could either be those Belgian grassy hops or yeast on pale malts. - Overall this is quite a simple beer: high-octane pilsner malts do a jenever rendition of an Imperial Hefeweizen. - Not quite my style within an already less favourite octane-high style that does have its merits and couldn’t be more Belgian (merci Vander Velde).

Served in a snifter from a bottle. Pours clear golden colour with a big remaining off-white head. Aroma is a typical Trappist combination of caramel, bread, yeast, but this one has a strong alcohol presence laced through very clearly. Taste is bread, yeast, peppery and again, very alcoholic with a lingering bitter-sweet finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Far too heavy alcoholic presence from start to finish makes this beer not very enjoyable.

Yellow beer with white head. Aroma and taste aren’t very strong. Nothing bad, but wanted stronger flavours and aroma. Very refreshing for a 9,5%.

Clear golden with a big fluffy white head. Plenty of funky Belgian aromas going on, flavour follows with ripe banana, yeast esters, bread, stone fruit... Alcohol quite present. Lovely.

En bouteille. Belle couleur mais peu de mousse. Arômes de vanille et de banane. En bouche c’est l’explosion de saveurs: c’est complexe, sucré comme il faut. puis le palais, long, peu amer, légère carbo et corps bien plein.

Patersoi (128) - AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2016
Pours light golden colour with dense foamy head. Funky trappist aroma. Soft creamy mouth feel combines with caramel, honey and vanilla as well as a sweet malt undertone. Long finish during which the subtle trappist funk returns. Subtle and light for a trappist but delicious.

BillKismet (3723) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2016
Copper colored with a nice frothy head renewed by streams of carbonation. The body starts off rather dank, but after aeration, it blows forth a profusion of esters and stone fruits, such as strawberry essence, with some stale bread crust in the background. A yeast saturated body replete with esters, some bread crust, and stone fruit. A liquid yeast and sourdough finish, with notes of unripe banana skin and apple.. Definitely improves with aeration and warming.

Teran (254) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 12, 2016
UPDATED: APR 13, 2016 Cloudy yellow with nice white top. High carbonation, very nice in alcohol, complex but well balanced. Full body. Citrus and pepper, very interesting and so natural. High class. This beer undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle.The current formula has stayed practically unchanged since 1956, thus more than 50 years.

Bobson (58) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Bottle @ Flamingobar Ulvenhout. Smell is quite light and doesn’t give too much away but is somewhat fruity. Looks light hazy with a medium white head. Taste gives fruits with some yeast and hops and is overall quite light for the type of beer. Overall, a very solid beer I really enjoyed drinking on a sunny day like this.
