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.

BiddleBrau (986) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2012
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’.

Overall one of my favorite tripel beers. Deep yellow color with white foam. A little bit fruity and malty smell. Rounded, creamy tast, but strong. Leves the sweet and a little bit fruity taste. Strong but drinkable

Golden color with huge white head. Aroma is citrus, biscuity and booze. Taste is heavily sweet, dough and fruity. A very boozy finish. High carbonation. A Tripel on steroids.

Mijn favoriete tripel. Smaken perfect in balans : lichtzoete toetsen met perfect bittere afdronk. Bijhorend glas is het perfecte trappistenglas.

Hazy amber gold with big fluffy head that sticks around and leaves nice lace. Perhaps as a result, the aroma is not pronounced, with grain and yeast predominating. Up front bitterness relaxes into nice balance of bitter, yeast, sweet, bready and slight banana notes. Each take their solos without competing. Slight alcohol heat and bitterness returns for lingering finish. Medium body with creaminess. This is how to showcase hops as bittering agents balanced with the other elements, not to beat your palate into submission. US brewers could learn a lot.

edsspoon (624) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle - very hazy golden with a large clean rocky white head which lasts a good while. Good lacing. Aroma of cloves, yeast, lemon and orange. Taste of marzipan, clove, yeast and hay with a little earth and bitterness in the finish. Some light sourness to complement. Medium body, low carbonation.
