PPWD Show. Excellent beer. What can I say I love the Belgians. A little cold. Had to warm in hand. Comparable to Chimay White. Would like to taste them side by side, blind. Obvious banana, bubble gum, coriander. Good mouthfeel. Light finish. Can’t believe it’s 11%.

Bottle 0.33L. Deep golden body with a medium-large, creamy, white head, mostly lasting with a nice lacing. Fruity aroma (white fruits) with evident notes of spices and alcohol; some malty character is also present. Flavour is mainly sweet and spicey. Medium body with an oiuly texture; soft carbonation; evident alcoholic warming in the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2014 Een lekkere tripel met een mooie schuimkop. Niet het meest gelaagde bier, maar wel een volle smaak. Zoete ondertoon, maar ook hop aanwezig.

The 11.2 ounce bottle poured a clear, golden yellow colored beverage with a small creamy white head that was completely lasting and left great lacing on the glass. The aroma was sour. It was primarily sour fruit notes but there were also hints of old leather, pepper and coriander. The body was medium-full with a soft carbonation and a smooth creamy texture. The flavor starts out lightly sour on the tip of the tongue then as it matures on the palate it takes on a sweeter character. The finish is long and has a definite alcohol warmth high in the throat.

Parket (586) - Bruges, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2010
75 cl bottle, shared, nice golden colour with stable white head. Smell: yeasty and alcohol. Taste: alcohol, sweet, apricot, yeast, malty. Nice ale but a bit too much alcohol flavour.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2002
One of the best tripels out there... slightly sweet even with the generous hops and spicy yeast character

3.2
Maits (580) - ESTONIA - JUL 14, 2017
Clear dark golden beer with lively white head. Aroma is malty, floral, yeast. Taste is balanced with sour and bitter. Some alcohol notes. Medium carbonation. Nice long tasting beer for the evening.

3.6
ulrikolsen (576) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear golden with beige head. Aroma is sweet and light malty with biscuit and light spicy. Taste is light malty with biscuit and light bread yet spicy with coriander and has a balanced sweet and spicy dry finish. Alcohol quite evident.

3.2
mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - JAN 11, 2005
33cl bottle, dated 12-04. Pours murky gold without any real head. Aroma of alcohol drenched tropical fruits. Drinks the same way, some substantial sweetness, a lot of heat. But not horrible. Way too hot for me to say it has any grace. I wonder what would be if they knocked this down 2%ABV? May be even boozier than Westmalle, which this tried to copy.

3.7
Jonb5 (568) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Pale golden, clear, small head, faded fairly quickly, looked very lively, very bubbly throughout. S: Yeast, esters, apple, some booze. T: Yeasty, fruity esters, bittersweet, hint of apple, did a reasonable job of hiding the booze. M: Crisp, well carbonated, light body for the high abv. O: Thumbs up from me on this one, not bursting with diverse flavors but its what I’d like a tripel to be.
