Format: 330ml Bottle
Westmalle Tripel is a clear, golden yellow Trappist beer that undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle (9,5% alcohol). It is a complex beer 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 beer, with a great deal of finesse and elegance. And with a splendid long aftertaste.
The Westmalle Tripel is indeed called the “mother of all tripels”. This type of beer was first brewed in Westmalle abbey in 1934 when the new brewing hall came into use. The current formula has stayed practically unchanged since 1956, thus more than 50 years.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Almost every Belgian artisan brewer does one but no one does a Tripel as well as the Abbey of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. The Trappist benchmark for the style, aromatic blast of esters and phenols in perfect balance with heaps of potential to mature over time. A huge beer in every way. Grab it if you see it. Never disappoints.
a great tripel, probably the best i've had. Can't beat trappist ales!
The cloudy light golden pour arouses a bubbly one and a half finger head which peels off a cm before resting to a thin, foamy covering over the top. Laced well, shedding some thick, soapy residue as we imbibe. The nose is quite conservative for a Belgian Tripel of its strength (9.5% ABV) not as sweet as most of its counterparts as this certain savoury caramel fudge-like feature Is detected initially. A certain candi sugary sweetness is there but it's held back by wafts of dough, lemonade, herbs, banana, clove, pear, alcohol and white pepper. Still quite traditional...and essentially a very nice aroma. In the mouth it's quite sharp with the alcohol burn really piercing the tongue. Quite a nice and smooth texture which does help to balance out the ABV. Mild-moderate carbonation. Certainly on the fuller side, really taking its time as it grips on its way down. Sweetness is prevalent upfront, amplified by a firm alcohol presence and citric fruit esters. Some candi sugar develops late as the mid displays some spicy and floral notes that lead on to a herbaceous finish that offers lingering hints of coriander and lemongrass to round it all off. Impressive.
Light beer with less complexities than the other Belgium beers. Still a good drop.
Very tasty beer
Refreshing Belgian Ale, lacks some complexity compared to other breweries, but a good beer all the same.
"Like most Evil Twin bottles, the label is excellent! In this case, it's a play on words, as the man pictured is named Justin, and blåbær is the Danish word for blueberries.
Delicious Berliner weisse that pours a hazy pale amber with a foamy white head that quickly dissipates.
The sour blueberries are balanced by the wheat, and overall the beer is very easy to drink.
Would definitely recommend if you're a fan of sours, or looking to get started."
Baby baby baby ....... that's sour! Not getting the blueberries. This would fix that graffiti 'art' someone did at Gold Coast hotel.
