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.

330 ml. bottle poured in a Westmalle chalice glass. Good nice head with a lace that seems to last forever. Smell of frutis, lemon grass , alcohol, sherry wine. Spicy. Good carbonation, thick and creamy palate. Taste of fruits, maybe apricots, hints of tropical fruits, some citrus,almonds, spicy. Long dry finish. I understand why this is considered the classic example of a belgian tripel. Excellent.

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.

Beer #2 in the "How the Hell have I not rated this??" series. Bottle drunk some time 2005-2008, cant remember exactly.
Large, foamy white head tops a light blonde body, good clarity and sediment left behind. Very strong retention.
Brett! and lots of it, in the nose. Light perfume, light band aid and lots of fruity esters to match; nectarine, pear, apple. Delicate honey, seemingly nicely attenuated lies behind it. Its joined by black pepper and just a hint of marmalade. Wow, this is one of the better "Trippels" Ive had, though its not really a trippel. No big breadiness, absolutely no clove. Not even all that yeasty, in comparison to most other trappist beers. No alcohol or flaw.
Fruity, dry and with enough residual base malt to provide a soft, but not too soft, texture. Some light graininess and lots of ester character, with moderate bitterness, lots of black pepper phenol and easygoing, lightly funky brett notes (light lime, hickory, band aid). Tight, natural carbonation is very high, and needs time to breath. A bit of sharpness and alcohol on the end, mixed in with the big ester character, but its not really problematic. Nice honeyish malt, grain and light brett lingering.
Looks like this one has gone downhill in recent years...so I probably just let my memories rest on this older bottle.

Yellow colour with a small head with a mild fruity aroma. Slightly sweet taste with fruity and spicy hints. Full bodied, smooth and a classic trappist beer.

Aroma Honey and cherry , dark blonde appearance with little foam, not strong initially to palate but full of flavours when expanding in the mouth, bitter but keeping the honey nuance in the sides if the tongue, that remains in the last palate even concealing the alcohol point

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2016 Trs bonne bire triple trappiste, forte, chaleureuse, tiquette sobre la graphie soigne, bon got sur le palais et en fin de boiche, un classique. Pas de fioritures (ni "fruite" ni got particulirement caramlis). Je la trouve plus facile boire que la Chimay blanche (triple) l?amertume plus prononce. Pas encore trop chre en rgion parisienne et facilement trouvable.
