About as classic as can get. White foam, medium carbonation. Lots of flowery esters. Clean. basjansen14 (461) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2017
Golden coloured ale with a nice white head. NiklasT (135) - SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2017
Aroma: malty, spicy some white bread and somme fruitiness.
Taste: fruity, spicy, malty and yeasty.
Light golden, very much like a classical lager. Not the aroma, though, which is slightly yeasty with a dominance of honey without strong sweetness ( is there such a thing?). Taste is quite dry and end with a moderate bitterness. Very nice tripel. denver4351 (14) - - JUN 7, 2017
Belgian tripel ale. 8%ABV. Good foamy head, cloudy from sediment. Palate and taste has the typical sweetness from a Belgian Abby ale.
Ian TtV (470) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2017
Bottle 33cl. Yellow gold with a white head. Medium carbonation. Aroma of fruits (grapefruit?), hops and grain. The taste is bitter, at first slightly but stronger near the aftertaste. Not too complex, but good.

Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Westy1130 (109) - New York, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Really a good Triple beer. A beautiful yellow/amber colour with a nice white head. Yeasty aroma and taste, but not overwhelming.
Real good beer
First tried some years ago, still one of my favorite Tripels. Pours a golden brownish color. Aroma/Taste: dark and tropical fruits, Belgian yeast and citrus. Very well balanced. GoufCustom (2205) - HONG KONG - MAY 28, 2017

330ml bottle bought at ICBeer in Kwun Tong.
Looks: Translucent light golden colour with a ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Three finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet Pils malt, with strong orange, pineapples, bananas, vanilla, strong bubblegum, waffles, floral, sugar, cloves, spices, herbs, strong Bel yeast, lemon and strong grass. Very nice!
Taste: Medium sweet Pils malt, with strong metallic, tartness, orange, floral, sugar, light spices, light herbs, Bel yeast, biscuits, lemon, mid to strong bitter hops and sharp grass.
Body: Mid to full body. Slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Solid Pils maltyness in a slightly thinned background. Still slick and smooth. Strong Bel yeast imprints with nice orange ester, flowery with nice strong sweetness with is balanced by subtle tartness. 8% booze is very well hidden. Notable hops presence with fair herbs and light spices. Biscuity with quite strong lemon to round. Very nice!
Hoppiness: Floral, spices, herbs, lemon and strong grass in nose and taste; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, close to high astringent sweet-bitter orangey malty finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Herbal hoppy and bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one has good looks and head, wonderfully fruity Bel yeasty aroma, a pretty well attenuated body with good sweetness and nice yeasty spicyness rounded with sublime herbal hops. Impressively tasted with an refreshing edge like a Saison, I can’t help to think St. Bernardus can wave its magic wand to impress with any style at any level. A real joy!
Aroma: spiciness, alcohol, fruity esters: pear, peach. Davros IX (528) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2017
Appearance: yellow, creamy head.
Taste: fruity, soft alcohol, citrus, spicy.
Palate: smooth, medium body, high carbonated, long sweet finish.
For some bizarre reason I seem to be drawn to Belgian beers like a moth to a flame and each time, like a moth, I end up getting burnt. The top was a bit dodgy which makes me suspicious about the taste There was a nice flavour of hops and that typical Belgian yeast, but there was also, to me anyway, an overpowering sourness to the beer. I am no fan of sour beers, but I persevered. It was better with food (finished while eating grilled pork chops) than on its own. Overall nice colour, good head, nice low carbonation and definite malt hops and yeast, but too sour for me.
