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.

An amazing triple. The color is cloudy straw. The head is white and lasts forever. The taste is amazing, delicious triple flavor with a nice bitter finish. Another please.

A blonde coloured ale, with a strong sour belgian hop nose, and a sharp sour hop bitter with a hoppy linger.

Trippels arent exactly my favorite kind of beer, but this is a good example of the class. Neither too acidic nor too spicy, but harmoniously balanced.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2007 Very nice and good ballanced beer. A beer you can drink after years. All the trapist beers are among the best beers of the world. Taste 2 older versions. One of 35 years old and 1 of about 7 years. Those older beers where still very nice. Last year drunk a bottle of 25 years old and that one was ,not good anymore

The head is white and ample. The aroma is hoppy. The appearance is very murky and kind of a dark gold color. It has that special "something" that only trappists have, but I think in less quantity that the dubbel. I am quite suprised to find that I like the dubbel better, and of course this one probably has more alcohol than I normally like.

Murkey goldenrod hue, white creamy lasting head, small yeasty particles, smells of banana, grain/hay malt, creamy texture, has some spice light and peppery, very smooth, crisp with a little bit of a sour citrus lemon aftertaste, description is mainly yeasty. Excellent, a must try!

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 Pow. Zam. Zoom. This was an interesting ale to say the least. Im working my way through the trappists, and have only has Chimay to start, so this is definitely a break from that. Much fizzier and clear on the pour (a golden yellow with a fair amount (if not bountiflu) had. Thin if non-existent lacing. Grazzy citrus and apple/pear on the nose and tongue. Once in the mouth, a little fruity bubble gum and a unique yeastiness. I dont see the cloudiness in my 750 ml bottle, so Im not sure if something is amis. Likeable beer, but Im not sure Id session drink this. Pared well, surprisingly, with pierogies! (Bottle Pour 4/23/2007)

Definitely a different beer than the Dubbel. Pours a clear golden with a nice 2-4 cm head. Nice fruits, citrusy with a light apple tart. Light bubbly mouthfeell with a little yeasty after taste on the tongue. Definitely a bit more alcohol on the nose, but its very bubbly and refreshing. If I could get more of this easily I would drink it regularly. I was lucky to also get a 750ml of this at one time as well (see above). (Bottle Pour 1/5/2008)

A sweet and slightly wheaty ale, the Tripel has a lightly bitter aftertaste. Very nice.
