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.

De Tripel van Westmalle is mij nog niet zo lang bekend, maar sinds ik dit bier een eerste keer dronk n van mijn absolute top favorieten. De brouwerij ligt op een steenworp van mijn woonplaats en het geeft mee toch wel met enige trots dat ik streekbier maar al te vaak bestel op caf of op mijn boodschappenlijst zet. Het aroma is zacht bitter met en subtiele toets van banaan en citroen. Het bier is goud blond en in het bijpassend glas komt de onregelmatige en volle schuimkraag compleet tot zijn recht.Het mondgevoel is vol en licht klevend in de keel, maar toch ook sprankelend fris op de tong. Het bruisende bier zoekt zich vlot een weg door de mond en zorgt voor en optimale verdeling van de unieke smaak. De smaak sluit naadloos aan bij het aroma en de geur die je tegemoet komt. Deze valt het beste te omschrijven als fris doch vol, met en fruitige toets van citrus en een subtiele tint van banaan afkomstig van de hoge gisting. De afdronk ligt in het verlengde van elke slok en ebt zachtjes weg tegen de volgende slok of het nieuwe glas.Blijft voor mij n van de beste trappisten bieren, daarenboven vlot verkrijgbaar en een gevestigde waarde op de drank kaart van menig restaurant en caf. Top!

PowY (375) - AUSTRIA - JAN 12, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-golden with a huge, rather stable coarse white head. Rather mild aroma, ripe pear, spices (cinnamon, star anise) some alcohol with some leathery yeast. Full body with a lively carbonation and a heavy sweetness. Very rich flavor full of sweet malt, molasses, caramel along with overripe stone fruits, banana, some alcohol and a dry bitter finish.

Golden ale. Pours very clear except for small quantity at the bottom of the bottle. Great head , taste and aroma of bubblegum. Not too sweet for the 9.5% alcohol. Prefer more hops but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (2365) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2017
11.2 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-19-16. 07/05/15, so this is about 1.5 years old at drinking. Pours dark bronze, hazy and cloudy with suspended particulate. Large amount of cream-colored head. Quite impressive and enjoyable appearance. Juicy, creamy aroma. Scents of green grapes and buttery Chardonnay. Candi sugar smell. Simultaneously dusty and fresh aroma. Juicy taste atop an underlying dryness. Bitter finish. Some spiciness. Green grape must. A hint of bubblegum. Full body. Frothy. Perhaps frothier than ideal for me. Nice beer, well made, a classic. Does not wow me but does impress me. A little sweeter than I would prefer, but I like the bitter finish and aftertaste.

Belgisk lkultur r uppfrd p UNESCO:s vrldsarvslista. Den hr prestationen platsar definitivt dr. Om den lever upp till trappistryktet ska vi kanske lta vara osagt, det handlar inte om ngon smakexplosion, men allt r otroligt vlbalanserat. Finns inget i smakbilden som drar ivg i nn ovntad riktning. Knns dessutom helt orimligt att den hr ska vara drygt 9 procent. Finns inte ett spr av en sn alkoholhalt. Vrdet av det fr ni avgra sjlva.
