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.

Kruidig, zwaardere dubbel, Zoet. Mooi blijvende schuimlaag. Krachtige dubbel die zich leent tot sippen, niet tot doordrinken. Prima.

Reddish brown colour with a beige foam. Medium bodied, lively carbonated. Pleasant fruity taste. Very fine example of a Belgian Dubbel. I'm starting to buy this beer more often.

Bottle from... Terno I believe? This is classic dubbel, nothing really you could object though through the times I have a feeling it has become more watery than it was. Still it's lovely experience and intro to heavy league of Belgium. Recommended.

Bought locally! This pours a cloudy dark brown with some orange hues and a +2 finger head of foam. The smell is fruity and spicy and malty. Overall, it's on the sweet side but nice. The taste is fruity, I get both sweet and bitter/tart notes. Light caramel malt sweetness here as well with some light spicing and a finish that is very dry. Makes me want to take another sip. Mouthfeel just creeps into medium territory while the carbonation is quite brisk. Also, head retention and lacing are top notch. Drinkability? It's an enjoyable session with the 1 bottle but now that I can buy it here in Casper, I'll be revisiting it often. A solid Belgian Dubbel.

Dark brown with medium beige head. Aroma is yeasty spices brown sugar coriander molasses baked banana. Taste is bitter alcoholic yeast and bittersweet molasses. Heavy and still a bit watery. Not my thing.

W aromacie mocno malinowe, sa nuty belgijskie ktore utozsamiam z kwasami. Barwa brazowa, piana drobna, calkiem utrzymujaca sie. W smaku kawa, ciemne pieczywo, karmel. Jest calkiem fajnie geste. Na finiszu kwaskowe. Goryczka srednia, wysycenie tez. Pozytywne zaskoczenie, spodziewalem sie zawodu.

Bottiglia da 33cl, Milano (Italy). Birra la cui fama non si discute, si presenta con un colore bruno e schiuma avorio, molto fitta e persistente. Gusto erbaceo, amarognolo, vagamente fruttato. Al palato lascia un sapore di caffé e liquirizia veramente squisito. Gran birra, da gustare non troppo fredda e nel bicchiere giusto da birra trappista (pena la formazione di troppa schiuma in un bicchiere inadatto).
