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 from 2006. This hasn’t ’traveled’ well over those 6 years. Hazy orange/golden color with no head. Malty and spicy nose with a hint of alcohol. Alcohol up front on first taste, slight burn that detracts from the malt/hop flavor. Having had this brew at Café Trappisten in 2004 across the street from the Westmalle Abbey, anything less is just... less. And this older bottle, not being treated properly, just doesn’t do this beer justice. I do prefer the dubbel but the tripel is wonderful. I hope to find a fresher bottle and provide a ’re-rate’.

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.

Pours very hazy golden with stuff floating around a a rich white head. A spicy aroma with some bubble gum and alcohol. A long-lasting dry taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Golden reddish colour. Aroma of fruits, hops, some herbs. The same is flavour, with malty notes and bitter - dry finish and aftertaste. Very good brew, but it is not convince me as Dubbel.

Baalzevuv (68) - Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 9, 2015
Piana śnieżnobiała, bardzo obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa. Barwa głęboka, złota. Piwo delikatnie zmętnione. Aromat delikatnie chlebowy i lekko alkoholowy. W smaku alkoholowy, choć nie aż tak, jak mogłyby wskazywać procenty. Goryczka delikatna. Czuć drożdże. Piwo trochę zalega. Wysycenie dość wysokie, gryzące.

Cloudy pale yellow, with a very thick and lasting head. Intense aromas of banana, bread, figue leaf, lemon curd, and a hint of cookies. A clear balsamic note, reminiscent of mint. Lively, pungent, markedly developing its way through the mouth. Long-lasting end. Great.
