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.

Bottle. Pours hazy straw blond with a thin head full of tiny bubbles. The aroma is discretely peppery and citrusy. The taste is spicy, bitter and dry. It is quite rustic and devoid of malty sweetness, uncompromising. It’s a cult beer perhaps, but not necessarily a tasty one. The Westmalle Tripel was tasted along with Chimay Blanche and La Trappe Tripel and it scored lowest in all categories, losing by far.

Het bier is heerlijk zacht in de mond. Mooie stevige schuimkraag erop. Het bier heeft iets citrusachtig in de smaak zitten wat me erg bevalt.

The 33cl bottle had a best before date of 23rd July 2016 and was poured into a Chimay goblet. It poured a hazy golden straw colour with a white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving thin soapy like lacing. There were aromas of bready malts, caramelised banana, candied sugar, slight bubblegum ending with lemon sour? Tastes were of sweet bready malts, orange, pear maybe some lingering banana ending with some slight alcohol. It was medium bodied with nice carbonation, creamy and also somewhat sticky. Overall this was a decent tripel. The best thing about it was its look especially the thin soapy lacing. The taste itself was decent, but nothing too special either.

Robe blonde et opaque. Pas de mousse. Saveurs de malt, fruits jaunes et épices. Carbonatation fine, texture épaisse. Très longue en bouche. Une excellente triple.

베스트말레-트& 9.5% ABV 시메이와 더불어 가장 유명한 벨기에 수사들의 맥주. 과일향의 강렬한 어텍, 부드럽고 크리미한 질감 사이로 뚜벅뚜벅 걸어들어오는 힘찬 홉의 아로마와 강한 단맛의 알코올기운. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

A far better Westmalle than the Double. Great fruity taste and long-lasting aftertaste.

The golden standard for every triple. Perfect balance between alcool, bitterness and malts. What more would you ask from a blond?
