COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, dry and spicy trappist ale. The product of a secondary fermentation lasting 5 weeks. This is a complex ale with a fruity aroma and a nice nuanced hop scent. It is soft and creamy in the mouth, with a bitter touch carried by the fruity aroma. An exceptional ale, with a great deal of finesse and elegance, and with a splendid long after taste.

Perhaps the most illuminating point of comparison here would be the Chimay Triple/Cinq Cents. This is much like the Chimay but with more caramelization and a deeper, darker flavor (as well as a darker color). Cola-like and well carbonated. I like the caramel-without-maltiness combination (contrast with Chimay, which has neither much caramel nor much malt), so I guess its natural that I would like this beer. I cant think of a better triple.

Finest example of the belgian tripel style i have ever tasted. this beer has excellent head retention. It pours a great golden colour with about 1-1.5cm of head.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Pours murky dark gold with 1 cm of white head. Loose, oily lacing. Smells of light sour Belgian, little barnyard. Some citrus, white rice, and more orange toward the end, wheat. Lite, but rounded in the mouth. High carbonation. Big body and still refreshing. Nice brew.

Copper/golden color with a soft white foamy head that lingers like the head on a Trappist beer should. Excellent (as expected) yeast notes and mild citrus/spice nose. Sweeter than other Trappist beers but delicious. An excellent beer - the monks have done themselves proud again. A good counter to other Trappist offerings - not as heavy or boozy as a Chimay or Orval.

Maybe my personal favorite tripel. Nose is very strong with yeast and spice. Alcohol is very noticible which is the only downside but the taste is great with honey and spices and yeast. Nice warming finish.

flowery and malty aroma; small, creamy white head with nice lacing; cloudy orange beer with alcohol warmth and a spicy flavor; finish is spicy, fruity, and flowery.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2007 Flaske. Selvom det er den originale trippel, er det dog langt fra den bedste trippel- Alkoholen er for dominerende hvilket efterlader resten af llen lidt kuppet. Rerate: Fik s en lagret. Og hvilken forskel. Fantastisk l med masser af frugt perfekt afbalanceret af alkoholen. Desvrre er det den eneste af de efterhnden mange westmalle jeg har fet. Men trkker op p helheden.
