Dcouvrir une abbaye belge est toujours un plaisir, mais pas toujours la hauteur des esprances .. Ceci dpend beaucoup de la hauteur du clocher de labbaye!! Niveau abv de 9 %. Mon exemplaire tait 3 mois avant date. Couleur dor soutenu, la clart nette. Bulles fines, par milliers, partout, vives. Mousse blanc cass, trs crmeuse, avec de la structure ferme en haut, stable 5 mm. Armes de malt cara, houblon, vin blanc, pointe de genivre, groseille maquereau. 1re bouche souple lentre sur un malt faussement grill, et une amertume un peu "casse". Arrire-bouche sans quilibre, plutt muscade. 2me trs faible, avec un manque important dharmonie. Arrire-bouche sans nuances intressantes. Longueur sans aucun dveloppement. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure un peu vineuse, ligne correcte. Alcool inefficace, il ne fait ni son niveau ni son travail, cest--dire pas grand chose Finale trs banale. CONCLUSION: le clocher de cette abbaye tait vraiment petit, il ntait pas vu de loin, et tant mieux les gens ne pensaient pas boire sa bire!! Reste un beau visuel cest tout .. Non, jallais oublier, labbaye est belle aussi ...

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

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... Id say its the sharp-bitterness&sugary-sweetness combo, more than other aspects, I really dont like here.

Pours a thick orange/hazy color. A decent Abbey Tripel but nothing out of the ordinary for a beer of this kind.

jsporrer (969) - 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.

Christos (5542) - 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.

Goudblond bier met mooie witte schuimkraag. Fruit en gist in de neus. Kruidige en hoppige afdronk. Stevige triple!

@Leuven, gouden met witte kraag. aroma van citrus, koriander en iets sinaasappel. smaken zijn vol van co2 bij elke slok, je hebt iig je mond vol...sinaasappel, mout, maar t is best een redelijke tripel. Afdronk korander en gistig.. Nadeel van een Belgische tripel is dat het allemaal erg veel op elkaar begint te lijken.

Bottle (BB 03-2016) @ De Wiering, Leuven. Aroma is light herbs, chicory, somewhere a bit banana. Appearance: clear blond, little thin sparkling, lacing head. Taste is herbal too, alcohol is present, sweet fruits. Aftertaste is long sweet but ends dry bitter. Started really good, but got more average while drinking.
