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 één 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 café 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 één van de beste trappisten bieren, daarenboven vlot verkrijgbaar en een gevestigde waarde op de drank kaart van menig restaurant en café. Top!

330 ml bottle best before 30-01-2015. Pours a cloudy golden colour with lots of particulate matter floating in the glass. Tight white head. Nose is grapefruit and fresh orange juice with a bit of peppery hops and funk. Taste is yeasty, bitter grapefruit, herbal/spicy hops and a slightly tart finish. Where is the booze?

edhutson79 (20) - Alabama, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Flavor is nicely sweet, with pepper and phenols, palate is wonderfully light. This seemed a fresh sample, as I could definitely detect some grassy and herbal flavoring hops skirting the edges of this.
