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.

De Tripel van Westmalle is mij nog niet zo lang bekend, maar sinds ik dit bier een eerste keer dronk n van mijn absolute top favorieten. De brouwerij ligt op een steenworp van mijn woonplaats en het geeft mee toch wel met enige trots dat ik streekbier maar al te vaak bestel op caf of op mijn boodschappenlijst zet. Het aroma is zacht bitter met en subtiele toets van banaan en citroen. Het bier is goud blond en in het bijpassend glas komt de onregelmatige en volle schuimkraag compleet tot zijn recht.Het mondgevoel is vol en licht klevend in de keel, maar toch ook sprankelend fris op de tong. Het bruisende bier zoekt zich vlot een weg door de mond en zorgt voor en optimale verdeling van de unieke smaak. De smaak sluit naadloos aan bij het aroma en de geur die je tegemoet komt. Deze valt het beste te omschrijven als fris doch vol, met en fruitige toets van citrus en een subtiele tint van banaan afkomstig van de hoge gisting. De afdronk ligt in het verlengde van elke slok en ebt zachtjes weg tegen de volgende slok of het nieuwe glas.Blijft voor mij n van de beste trappisten bieren, daarenboven vlot verkrijgbaar en een gevestigde waarde op de drank kaart van menig restaurant en caf. Top!

New bottle bought in Belgium. Poured into a regular beer glass. Slightly cloudy golden with a big foamy head, that stays around. Fruity aromas and a bit of sweetness, that is countered by the somewhat bitter finish and a good bit of boozyness. My favorite tripel so far ( tried all the belgian trappist offerings plus a few more) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dodskenta (91) - Rnninge, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2015
Poured into a trappist glass. Golden color with a frothy white head. Sweet aroma to it, getting lots of the yeast fruitiness, banana, stone fruit, some raisins, herbs. Tasted sweet and malty, also here lots of fruity flavours, bit of marzipan and a bit of bubblegum. Medium full body and slick texure, soft carbonation. A fantastic tripel!

ctipping (226) - Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2015
330 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Hazy orange body with an ample white head. Smell is strong yeast manifesting as banana and light spice. Alcohol as well. Taste is less sweet that I would have expected based on the aroma. Hefty banana taste with some sugariness, but it quickly drops off leaving a bitter yeasty finish. Very dry finish. Seems like high carbonation because of how quickly it drops off. Deceptively light tasting, but the alcohol never subsides. Tripels are not my style, but this is about as good as it gets from a tripel.

sudomorph (911) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours a slightly opaque golden orange with a two finger, bubbly white head and carbonation streaming from the center of the glass. Aroma is fantastic. Spice, Belgian yeast, and non-sweet candy sugar. Taste is balanced. Candy sugar and bubble gum to start, then into spice, banana, and darker sugar, then a warm, spicy ending. Very nice. Medium-full body with a high carbonation. Slightly syrupy in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a great tripel. Lots of spicy yeast, and candy sugar.

Tonkatruck (29) - SPAIN - JUL 19, 2015
I gave it try and tried open my mind but I dont get it. This one is not for me. Chems,soap,diesel and strong alcohol with a finish of old school kids medicine. Perhaps if you have the history and exposure youll get it.
