look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Hazy apricot color, pillowy head of white foam. Several thin and active threads of carbonation. Nice lacing effects.
Smell: Notes of citrus, spice, hay, and candi sugar. Light and fresh.
Taste: Alcohol predominates as it hits the tongue, then gives way to a sweet, slightly smoky flavor. Hints of spice and hops. Complex without being overpowering.
Mouthfeel: The carbonation makes for a sharp, palate clearing mouthfeel. Aftertaste is clean, with a lingering taste of grassy citrus.
Drinkability: Lovely and rich, this is not something to have daily, but rather one to have on rare occasion, when you have the time and peace to savor it properly. It's a light a summery sort of beer, but the alcohol will warm you on cold nights just fine. Belgian ales are my favorite, tripels most of all. Westmalle certainly lives up to the Trappist tradition.
