UPDATED: MAY 5, 2019 29 April 2019. At Zeiven Uke, Leuven - shared with Anke! Pours clear golden with a huge, slowly collapsing, foamy, white head; lots of lacing. Aroma of yeast, old apple sauce, dried banana & apricot, breadcrust, clove, faint cabbage. Taste is light to medium fruity sweet, estery banana & apple peel, topped with white sugar, some (retronasal) cabbage again, clove-like phenols next to bitter grass & pepper, all the while yeasty. Dry, grassy hoppy finish, spicy-phenolic still, more yeast, and some warming, not too subtle, jenever-like alcohol. Medium body, thinnish oily texture, lively carbonation. Not a very refined Tripel but there are other, more obnoxious examples out there, so it’s decent enough for a sunny day in spring.

Découvrir une abbaye belge est toujours un plaisir, mais pas toujours à la hauteur des espérances .. Ceci dépend beaucoup de la hauteur du clocher de l’abbaye !! Niveau abv de 9 %. Mon exemplaire était à 3 mois avant date. Couleur doré soutenu, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, par milliers, partout, vives. Mousse blanc cassé, très crémeuse, avec de la structure ferme en haut, stable à 5 mm. Arômes de malt cara, houblon, vin blanc, pointe de genièvre, groseille à maquereau. 1ère bouche souple à l’entrée sur un malt faussement grillé, et une amertume un peu "cassée". Arrière-bouche sans équilibre, plutôt muscadée. 2ème très faible, avec un manque important d’harmonie. Arrière-bouche sans nuances intéressantes. Longueur sans aucun développement. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure un peu vineuse, ligne correcte. Alcool inefficace, il ne fait ni son niveau ni son travail, c’est-à-dire pas grand chose … Finale très banale. CONCLUSION : le clocher de cette abbaye était vraiment petit, il n’était pas vu de loin, et tant mieux … les gens ne pensaient pas à boire sa bière !! Reste un beau visuel c’est tout .. Non, j’allais oublier, l’abbaye est belle aussi ...

Blond colour with thin head. It’s a well balanced Tripel. Subtle sweet fruits, yeast and a light bitterness.

kraddel (10780) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2015
Pours clear blonde, big white head. Smell is spiced, bitter, hops and yeasty. has a certain earthyness to it, as well as a sweet touch. Taste is mostly bitter, in a sharp way (naturally, is a question ?) Over a sweet, sugar-like body. MF and carbo are fine, but the taste has something off. Not per-se a flaw from brewing, but more something I just simply do not like... I’d say its the sharp-bitterness&sugary-sweetness combo, more than other aspects, I really don’t like here.

MMR (830) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2015
Pours a thick orange/hazy color. A decent Abbey Tripel but nothing out of the ordinary for a beer of this kind.

jsporrer (1419) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw yellow color. Slightly sweet aroma with some spice. taste is fairly smooth and semi-sweet like clover honey with a little spice. Not too much flavor and there is a slight alcohol burn at the finish. Not that enjoyable especially for a Belgian ale.

Beerhunter111 (28196) - Beerland, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2015
Trübes goldenes Bier mit einer ordentlichen weißen schaumkrone. Geruch getreidig süß, malzig, reifes Obst. Geschmack sehr malzig, Honig, reife Früchte, leicht alkoholisch.

Christos (6069) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2014
(Keizersberg Tripel) Stubby bottle 330 ml, served into a tulip, ABV 9% Bright golden orange colour on the body, very clear, with good activity in it. Tall soapy head, with good retention, leaving spots of lacing here and there. Aroma of sweet malts, apricot, light wine and wood notes. Sweet taste, with lots of apricot and peaches, sugars, obvious alcohol, again some homemade wine. Medium body, carbonation on the high side. Not bad, drinks good.
