De trappist van Zundert is een verrassende nieuwkomer. Net Westmalle als mijn referentiekader bij het beoordelen van trappisten, moet ik zeggen dat ik de Zundert toch iets minder goed vind maar toch met open armen ontvang in trappistenland. Het aroma is eerder fris neutraal met en lichte toets van banaan, koffie en Candij. De amber kleur is heel aantrekkelijk, de schuimkraag fijn bruisend. De smaak is verfrissend maar mist voor mij wat buik. De afdronk compenseert dit tekort en zorgt ervoor dat het aroma vooralsnog de smaak kan waarmaken een dit tot de volgende slok. Het mondgevoel is aangenaam sprankelend, niet te zwaar waardoor dit bier eerder vlot drinkt. Een aangename variatie voor de zwaardere bieren welke zich zeker kan meten met de gewone trappisten, maar klein bier is tegen de vollere tripels. En biet voor alle seizoenen maar zeker voor op en gezellige winterse avond.

zacgillbanks (3343) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle from Mam and Dad’s holiday, Amsterdam. Hazy amber coloured with a malty, toffee and marzipan flavour with boozy notes followed by smooth herbal notes on the slightly tart finish.

Idiosynkrasie (5016) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear, reddish dark amber colour with huge, thick, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Fruity and caramel malty aroma, notes of red berries, cherry, a woody touch of cedar or the like. Taste is fruity and caramel malty, minimally nuttily, almost chocolately, a touch of toffee, hints of red berries, a touch of cedar; smooth and soft palate. Not as rich and complex as the world-famous Trappist Ales with longer history.

hawthorne00 (2878) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle, 12C. Clear pale amber with an off white head that lasts all the way. Aroma is doughy with pears and brown sugar. Carbonation is quite high. Lots of dough. Sweet and quite fruity with plums as well as pears and caramel. Dries out a bit with some cloves and pepper but not much bitterness. More like a strong Speciale than a Tripel, but whatever. Pretty good.

jamestulloch (2209) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear amber body with a large off-white head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of toffee, overripe apple, earth and copper. Flavour of fig, peppery spice, wholemeal bread and brown sugar. Medium body with a slick texture. Very fizzy. A decent Abbey Tripel, just not particularly complex.

Bawelt (100) - Lyon, FRANCE - AUG 27, 2015
Très correcte. On reste sur une trappiste, assez épicée, un peu plus sucrée que la plupart des trappistes. La texture est très douce, légèrement épaisse. Elle reste caramélisée pour l’attaque et finit dans des épices un rien écoeurantes à mon goût. Bel équilibre malgré tout mais sans surprise ou identité remarquable. A tester par curiosité.

ineedbeer (1261) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Poured from a bottle courtesy of my Summer Secret Santa. Aroma is rather estery with a nice floral note and quite a bit of stone fruit, pear and bubblegum. A light phenolic note and a touch of alcohol spice. Medium light caramel, light sugar and faint toasted bread. Pours a hazy, copper red with a large, thick, rocky tan head that slowly falls into itself before levelling off at a moderate size. High lacing with moderate legs. Flavor is moderately sweet with some caramel, light sugar and toasted bread. Medium light bitterness. Moderate ester notes of stone fruit, pear and bubblegum. Some light banana and phenolics. A hint of alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent beer, clean and full of esters. Some decent malt notes with light phenolics and bitterness. Bitterness is a bit rough though.

ChristianHR (232) - DENMARK - AUG 25, 2015
Pours hazy amber with a thick beige head. Smells like caramel, very fruity, burnt sugar, sweet nuts and raisins. The taste is very pleasant with hints of caramel, burnt sugar, dried fruits, dates and raisins. The mouthfeel is champagne like and leaves the mouth sticky like sirup.
