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.

Bottle dated 6/26/12. Strong fruity-spricy aroma as soon as I pop the cork. Pale gold with a thick, creamy white cap of foam. In the glass, aroma is yeasty, spicy, and richly malty. Initial impression is malty, which transitions to a dry sweetness, alcohol, spice and a hint of hops - very nicely balanced. Mouthfeel seems full at first but dries quickly as the carbonation, alcohol, and spicy flavors sweep in. Overall a fantastic balance, and it’s easy to see why this beer defines the Tripel style.

Una westmalle Tripel de color ámbar sin filtrar de baja carbonatacion y espuma. Aroma a almíbar con notas de mermelada de durazno. Sabor a durazno maduro con alta acidez. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Fountainhall Wines. You pour this straight into the glass and the head grows like a mad experiment. The glass looks good with a clear orangey gold colour, heaps of bubbles and a crazy tall off-white fluffy head. All very promising although I prefer the lighter colour of Karmeliet Tripel. The nose is nice with citrus zest, spice and apple sherbet. There’s toffee swirling around there too. The taste has the components of the nose with warm cloves, dry spice, sweet oranges. It’s all washed down with a spirit alcohol aftertaste with grain. The body of this beer is just incredible. It wouldn’t be out of place as a Champagne. Lively sharp bubbles filling the senses in a smooth medium body. The palate for me is the standout element here. The sweet zesty citrus and toffee blended with a warming spice balance everything out in a very distinctive Belgian way.

33cl bottle at home. Appearance: hazy golden with fairly big white head. Aroma: grains, yeast, banana, clove, spices, stonefruits. Taste: fairly high sweetness and high bitterness. Notes of spicy yeast, banana, nutmeg, apricot. Quite complex. Finish is dry, spicy and slightly wry. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and lively carbonation.

Piana bardzo obfita długo się utrzymuje. Kolor ładny złoty. Aromat słaby: miód i wanilia. Smak miodowy ,ale nie słodki. Goryczka jest ale nie za wysoka. Lekka nuta alkoholowa w tle. Piwo ciężkie ale bardzo dobre. Jedynym jego minusem jest aromat który jest: ubogi. Tak to polecam

Piana drobna trwała, zdobi szkło. kolor żółty z pływającymi drobinkami drożdży. Aromat słodowy, przyprawowy lekko ostry, drożdże z belgijską bogatą owocową nutą, alkohol winnie wyczuwalny. Smak oddaje to co w zapachu tylko bardziej intensywnie, jest wytrawnie, owocowo, ciasteczkowo, są drożdżowe estry, fenole, alkohol wyczuwalny w przyjemnym winnym owocowo kwaskowym charakterze. piwo jest wysoko nasycone, przez co jest lekkie musowanie na języku, goryczka wyczuwalna wyraźna. Piwo Bardzo dobre, złożone.

330 ml bottle. Hazy honey gold color. Large frothy white head. Sweet lemony, yeasty nose. First sip is tangy, sweet effervescence. Hints of chalk, sweet lemon, rustic bread, vanilla and earthy ferment. Soft on the palate, grainy stewed citrus notes. Dry and spicy notes in finish. Quite delicious is this.
