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.

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.

Appearance: golden color semi-turbid. Great head, consistent, rocky, persistent and beige color. Beautiful!. Aroma: nice malty and yeasty. High hoppyness, fine, with floral and herbs touches. Citric-fruitiness of pineapple and lemon; sweet-fruitiness of apples and banana. Slight spicy; coriander, vanilla and clove. Flavor: complex and exquisite!. Malty, yeasty, and slightly candy. Spice presence, such as, clove and coriander. Fruitiness of pineapple, tangerines, red apples and banana. Sweet and fruity start; herby-hoppy finish, with medium dryness and persistency. The final dryness present fruity-touches of peel-orange and pink-grapefruit. Liquory and warm. Palate: medium body, semi-oily and creamy texture. Low carbonation. Complex and exquisite beer, good balance and very nice dryness. (sorry for my english)

Delightfully fruit-taste, with the powerful but not spirit-like alcohol providing the balance. The amount of taste in this beer is impressive, even for a trappist.

Golden colour with nice white head, yeasty, strong, a bit bitter, more hopped than your average abbeys, a bit spicy. Dry as well...

Bottle. This was the first Trappist I ever tasted, and after this Im surprised I tried another. The beer pours a watery gold color with a prominent, frothy white head. Aroma is largely yeast with slight spice characteristics included. Taste is yeasty up front with spice on the end of the taste. Overall I found this beer too watery, which I later learned is not a hallmark of the tripel style.

Gold color with medium diminishing head and some lacing. All around a good beer, but doesnt come close to the flavor of other trappist ales.
