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.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2013 I must have had a bad batch of this as I wasn’t very impressed with it, but I have since given it another chance and... wow! This beer is beautiful! It has a very strong, perfumed aroma of good quality yeast and malts, with dried fruits such as cherries & apricots. The taste is yeasty, spicy, fruity with a gentle bitterness at the finish. It is medium bodied with good carbonation, and a smooth mouthfeel. The alcohol is not hidden in this, and at 9.5% it is more of a sipper, but it is now one of my new favourite tripels!

Bitter and dry. Spicy and rubbery flavours. Fresh bottle (2 months from botting time) has a clear hop character; older bottles lose this. A grainy maltiness in fresh bottles develops into a mellow chocolate flavour in older ones. Good beer.

Fruity esters. Slight haze. Honey gold. Dry & crisp. Rather easy drinking for a belgian tripel.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3564) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle from Aeon Liquors. A contrast to yesterday’s Avec Les Bons Voeux, here’s Westmalle’s Tripel. It also clocks in at 9.5% but pours a lighter honey gold with a thick foamy head of fizzy white. The aroma is bready, orange with a musty cinnamon-like quality. Full bodied but sharply carbonated with a dry-ish finish. This is much boozier than the Du Pont, it is rougher but that could be due to being a younger bottle. The taste is spicy, a bit of plum and nutty. Nice but not as satisfying as Avec Les Bons Voeux. I do enjoy the spicy/fruity finish though.

Light aroma, fruity but hard to distinguish. Pours hazy amber with a nice creamy head. Quite a bitter taste that lingers long.

Smells like sweet over-ripe plums and spices. Fruity on the tongue - more dark fruits like plum and a hint of sour apples - with a smooth and creamy texture. The rich yeasty malts and the alcohol kick in on the aftertaste.
