Top 3 of Belgian Tripel ! Malted and nice aroma !
Beautiful golden-amber with thick frothy white head. Aromas of brown sugar, spice, citrus, and baked bread. The taste offers up flavors of creme brûlée, sweet spices, citrus, toast, and a mild malty bitterness. It's really a wonderful beer.
As good as this style gets
Pours a nice golden color with a light foamy head. Has a bit of citrus-sour flavor. Very sharp carbonation. The finish is a bit sour. I think I would enjoy this more if there were a bit more spiciness to it.
Didnt care for this. Not enough spice - not enough flavor. Nasty aftertaste that I found very "un-tripel like". Way too many better selections in this category.
Fruity and sweet. Not as much spice as I'd like compared to other Tripels, but a high quality selection. Touch of flowering and smooth to drink since the high ABV is not very detectable.
8.0% ABV. 750ml bottle poured into a goblet. Pours a cloudy, dark straw color with pale gold highlights when backlit. Yields a two-finger high, frothy, bone colored head that settled ever so slowly to a thin surface cap that left sporadic tufts of foam and sticky rings that clung to the walls with each sip. Constant bubbles stream from the bottom of the glass even on later pours. Just a wonderful Belgian nose of ripe bananas, cloves, candied orange slices, coriander, pears and grapes. The taste is much the same, bananas, cloves, raisins and a hint of spicy pepper at the end. The mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy. The tingly carbonation is obvious and the finish is pleasantly dry. This is an extremely well crafted tripel and I would recommend it to both the tripel novice and the tripel fan.
Poured into Delirium glass from a bottle brought to me from a friend that went to Belgium. It does have a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness.
Those crazy ass monks
Poured into goblet. Hazy gold. Despite care pouring, a good amount of yeast sediment made it into the glass, so the haze may just be yeast. Thick, fluffy white head that lasts forever. Heavy fruit and spice to the nose, orange, lemon, banana, pepper, clove, a little pils malt. Potently fruity, and very very Belgian flavors. Candylike pils malt sweetness. A little fuller bodied and sweeter than other tripels I've had, but the high carbonation and still relatively dry finish keep that from being a fault. Very slight tartness in the background. Slight alcohol note as the glass warms adds another layer of pleasant complexity. While I tend to like the drier Trappist interpretations better, this is still a damned fine tripel.
Sour. I despise sour beer, so this one was an expensive sip and drain.
This Belgium is known for producing in the past the legendary westvleteren. It really taste like it. Sweet amber beer with lots of malt and hops right on the spot.
Poured a medium golden color, with about one finger of head, which doesn't last long. Aroma reminded me of golden raisins. The taste also has that flavor, with a mild bitterness from the hops balancing it out. Has a moderately thick mouth feel with noticeable carbonation. Quite expensive, but quite enjoyable.
It's good, not my favorite. Price point argument in tow, I don't know if I'd buy this again. For the price I'd rather go with Auroch's Horn.
Usually not a huge fan of tripels b/c of high carbonation. I let this one warm and breathe a bit first though which helped ..... a lot! Definitely top of my short list of tripels I actually do enjoy. Fresh, but subtle citrus and spice follows the great malt aroma, finished off by "that" Belgian yeast character that never gets old.
This one pours a hazy gold with a hint of orange and a solid finger of pure white head. Seems more persistant and with better lacing than the previous St. Bernardus offerings. Lots of banana and clove on the nose and maybe a little earthy or spicy bitterness.
Banana and clove are evident from the first sip, with some tropical and/or citrus fruit coming through at the end with a slight, but quenching, acidity. The alcohol is invisible, an impressive feat at 8%. It has a light to medium body, very crisp and highly carbonated. Finishes dry and very refreshing, with a hint of lemon.
Extrordinarily easy drinking but certainly no lack of complexity. I could almost knock back a few of these on a hot day if not for the high price and alcohol. A really fantastic brew.
