De trappist van Westmalle ligt, net zoals zijn grote broer de Tripel, in de bovenste la, alleen al omdat dit streekbier onze regio op de internationale bierkaart zet. Het aroma is fris zoet en fruitig. De frisse citrus geur nodigt uit tot proeven. Het uiterlijk is donker bruin met en volle mokka kleurige schuimkraag. De smaak is eenvoudig doch perfect in balans. Het is een verfrissend bier waarvan de smaak balanceert tussen iets fruitig met en bittere toets die doet denken aan pompelmoes. De zoete smaak doet denken aan het zoete van in marsepein, doch blijft discreet op de achtergrond. Het mondgevoel is verfrissend, sprankelend bruisend en weinig klef waardoor de trappist van Westmalle gemakkelijk en smakelijk wegdrinkt. Aangezien dit bier ook een eerder beperkt alcohol volume heeft is dit een mooi en verfrissend alternatief voor de toch wel zware tripel. En superieur bier dat zich in een brede waaier aan omstandigheden laat voorschotelen.

Karmel, banany, drożdże. Ciemny, brązowy kolor. Słodki smak. Daje radę choć piłem lepsze warki.

Tres belle robe brune. La mousse se dissipe vite, un peu trop gazeuse. Bien quilibrentendu et fruite, lgre amertume mais finale acide, dommage.

lokis333 (478) - Birai, LITHUANIA - MAY 19, 2017
Very deep dark red color with huge sand color foam. Aromas of ripe fruits, raisins, banana peel, caramel, biscuits and a light touch of wood. Palate, medium to full body with disappointingly light-ish texture leaving nice dry finish. Taste sweet of with notes of malt, burned sugar, dried fruits, and caramel. Overall, okay not bad but expected bit more from a Trappist beer, but still nice.

Vinx (132) - ITALY - MAY 5, 2017
Clear dark amber color with a significant long lasting tan foam; aroma of clove, caramel, ripe fruit, red fruit above all, banana, black pepper; a good balance between sweetness and bitterness; medium body but thin feel; lively carbonation; bitter finish and a little astringent. This beer is the paradigm of a belgian dubbel: great yeast with all its esters and phenols, thin texture and not cloying at all. its hard to explain how its organoleptic profile is clean but "dirty", as all the belgian beers are, at the same time. Complex, pleasant, a peerless masterpiece.

Im not always in the mood for a dubbel, but holy cow, this one is amazing. Spot on for style, of course, and is just so well balanced and tasty. Do not pass up if you are in the mood for a belgian red that wont knock you down after one beer.
