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.

33 cl [email protected] in Westmalle [email protected] 10 degrees C. (Perfect temp.) Pours almost clear golden with large white head of minute bubbles. Excellent retention and some lacing. Fresh aroma of acidy fruit, apples, pears and also of acidy? bread. Full, warm taste dominated by malt, alcohol and licorice with hints of clove and Belgian yeast. Aftertaste is serious and warming as the bitterness of the hops kicks in. Very long lasting and very complex. Medium to slightly heavy body with a well balanced carbonation adds up to a great tripel - to me the winter sister of the magnificent Karmeliet.

Nose is spiced bananas and floral hops. Pours clear golden with a long one finger head. Quite poppy on the tongue. Taste is floral & spice and sweet & bitter with a long lasting finish. Quite deep and complex.

kluczbork (137) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Bottle. Mainly bananas in the aroma, with some apricots as well. Very pleasant, almost like a weizen. Pale with some tiny bits and white head, which quickly disappears. Taste is quite similaer to the aroma- again bananas and apricots, then an alcohol. Medium- full bodied, high CO2, All in all, not bad.

Bijl (364) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2016
Goudgeel, licht wazig, witte schuimkraag, veel koolzuur. Aroma: Citrus, hoppige florale hinten, lekker fruitige geuren van ananas en Sinaasappelschil en mango. Smaak: Mooi zuurtje, citrus en fruitig als groene appel. Een kruidige/peperige prikkeling in combinatie met een florale hopbitter. Dit geeft in combinatie met het koolzuur een flinke prikkeling op de zijkant van de tong. Iets prikkelige schil en een herkenbare Belgische gist smaak. Zeker niet zoet...... eerder bloemig, fruitig, kruidig en een prettige bitter. Tikje alcohol warmte zeker niet op de voorgrond. Medium body, aktief en prikkelig mondgevoel, afdronk is fruitig en licht bitter....iets droog. Wat een prachtige goed gehopte tripel!

VueltaBirrista (79) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 8, 2016
Es de color amarillo dorado con una esponjosa corona de espuma blanca dispuesta para el encaje. Maravillosa al servirla en la copa y cuando empieza a desplegar todo su aroma: fruta madura y flores. En boca es cremosa y delicada. Muy afrutada, pltano y naranja amarga. La carbonatacin es maravillosa y puedes apreciar fcilmente el rosario de burbujas semejantes a una copa de cava o champn. Su final es agradablemente amargo, algo seco y muy duradero. Lo mejor es que la Westmalle Tripel va mejorando en botella durante varios meses, alcanzando al ao de estar embotellada su momento lgido. Solo me faltara por comentaros que tiene 9,5% de volumen de alcohol y que en absoluto se nota cuando la ests bebiendo. As que ojo que luego se pone uno a levantarse de la silla y vienen los sustos!!

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2016
Deep cloudy golden color with storming glass clinging activity. Extra foamy white 3 finger island head, lasting around 20 minutes, with decent legs. Flavors of red licorice, coriander, sweet grains, lemon, apples, pears, clove, Belgian yeast, leafy spices. Super malty and sugary with a harsh dose of spices. Smooth slick medium body with almost champagne like carbonation. Strong finish, boldly spiced, lingering fresh malts, floral yeast and hops, with a soft barrel aged feel. Very rich, filling, and warming. Slightly boozy and acidic but with good freshness. Delicious flavors but slightly too spicy. And you get the happy kind of buzz as usual from quality tripels. Overall excellent quality craft.

Bastante buena. Muy al estilo belga. El sabor corto es sabroso y el sabor largo un tanto amanzanado. En general muy bien.
