4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I just had this beer and i have to accept it’s absolutely one of the best beers I ever tasted. Only the Sint Bernardus 12 seems to be close. The taste is very full and has a kind of wooden taste. The Westvleteren 8 is absolutely more fruity, but less exceptionnal.
I absolutely recommend the beer and the website that helped me to get the beer for a good price (even if i don’t know if this is allowed in my review: http://westvleteren12.webs.com/ )

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2017 disappointing was my first thought, was hoping for more flavor and aroma. it is, however, an interesting beer, strong and light at the same time, and a little bit sweet. the head is gorgeous and lasts a very long time.

Piwo barwy złocistej z wysoką białą pianą. W aromacie brzoskwinia, białe winogrona, goździki, lekka przyprawowość, delikatny biszkopt, banan, gdzieś z tyłu subtelnie landrynkowe. W smaku wytrawne, ziołowe, przyprawowe, brzoskwiniowe, bananowe, goździkowe. Fajne piwko. Mi ta "nudna belgia" chyba nigdy się nie znudzi :). AVLarsen (180) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2017
Bottle. A very strong and powerful trappist. Not too much yeast but balanced. Try it!

Pours hazy yellow with small white foam.
Lots of co2, very fruity with a long hoppy aftertaste. Easy drinkable, though a high ABV. beermastersasho (41) - - AUG 16, 2017
Westmalle tripel is a little bit too heavy for a triple ale for me. I need more balance. I taste the alcohol... But its creamy in the mouth as it is written. Nice aroma, but I need more. Good with steak, cheese, fruits... I think that women wont like it... it is a really hard trappist ale. For example Tripel Karmeliet is more drinkable and in comparison with rochefort 10, which is QUADRUPEL and 11+ degrees - this westmalle tripel is heavier. Rochefort is more drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2017 Flot, gylden, lidt uklar i glasset. Let parfumeret i næsen. God fylde, man fornemmer den høje alkoholprocent, uden at det bliver sprittet. Halvtør afrunding. Solid trappistøl. KevinReddirt (182) - Midland, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Another happy bring-home 750 ml bottle from an excursion to the Dallas area. Poured into my Chimay Trappist glass it shows an opaque, gold body sharing a bright white, lingering foam. Lifting the glass to smell I detect spun sugar and yellow fruit. Taking a drink, it is quite different from the scent. I get green apple, yeast, a mild bitterness from start to finish. The alcohol is totally concealed. Worth the effort, glad to have a sampling, but maybe I set the bar too high. royalbeer (19) - NORWAY - AUG 12, 2017
Thik, very tasteful beer. Light in color. A very good beer. Please, send me another one!
