UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 Garrafa. Tomada em diversos momentos na Europa. Considero a Grimbergen, assim como a Leffe, minha bebida padrão em terras européias. Essa Tripel é bem marcante, encorpada, complexa e altamente agradável. Gr0ve (2176) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2007
330 ml bottle. Golden crystal clear colour. A medium-sized white fluffy head with coarser bubbles at the edges. Sugary clean aroma with a thin hoppy sharp edge. Quite typical of a tripel in fact. Smooth texture. Feels very sugary in the mouth, but without being cloying. A well-balanced bitterness keeps the sweetness away. Not bad for a commercial tripel. A bit watery in the finsih though. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2007
On tap at the Delirium cafe. Pours fairly clear yellow with a smooth white head. Citrusy spicey aroma. Good crisp tripel with a very floral nose of tropical fruit, coriander, and wheat. Nice beer but has a bit of excess alcohol showing. Grovlam (4253) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2007
Bottle. Large fizzy head that mostly lasted. Clear sparkling body with a yellow color. Good display of lacework. Yeast, coriander, citrus, spice and caramel. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and hint of alcoholic texture. Light to moderated sweet malty flavor with some bitter and acidic notes. Sweet and spicy finish. An average Triple in my book. davegore (223) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2007
bottle from my local indy, pours a golden colour with some cloudiness, large head that quickly settles to something more manageable in the glass. strong sweetness to the aroma which follows onto a fantastically complex taste in the mouth, sweetness, caramel and some fruit too, pineapple maybe?, then ,malt at the end. excellent finish, almost tingly on the tongue, a fine beer

Lys sødlig belgisk øl.
Meget lækker fyldig og frugtig i smagen. Belgisk gær kan anes.
Duften er kraftig frugtsødme.
Meget dejlig øl. almopina (87) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 30, 2007
One of the best Grimbergen I have ever had. Very similar to a trappist beer. This one, however, is pale blonde. I will have more of this. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 17, 2007
A rich clean brown pour with a light head that disipates quickly. An aroma that at first reminded me of apple juice but then comes across with an almost brown sugar push. A flavor that is sweet malt up front and a hint of fruit and spice followed by an alcohol that is different than warm but not really hot. Just a tad of bitter in the finish. A palate that is almost thick but not quite. Carbonation that is probably ok for the style but a little over the top for me.

Bottle, and understandably the last of the three Grimbergens tried, I had them before but never rated so wanted to go back and revisit. Poured a warm golden colour with a slight haziness to it. The increase in alcohol over the other two Grimbergens was quite evident even just on the aroma, but like the others there was a definate yeast and maltiness detected on the nose. Taste was altogether more complex and interesting that it’s stablemates but the alcohol was always lingering in the background, really good chewyness, and fruitiness to this beer some nice burnt toffee notes maybe, but very nice easily attainable beer. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 23, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 Bottle 33cl. Golden color, extremely big white head. Very vinous. Sweet fruity, alcohol, belgian yeast. BB 2004, and the age has done this beer more balanced and complex.
