75cl bottle from Belgianbeershop.com. Westmalle Tripel is a hazy pale yellow beer with a moderate white head. The aroma is very yeasty, fresh and fruity (banana, citrus); very inviting. The beer is perfectly balanced between sweetness and bitterness. It's very refreshing, an ideal thirst quencher. Fruity and spicy accents. Moderately bitter finish. Excellent beer, one of my favorites.

A: In my Duvel tulip, this pours the color of beautiful golden grass with a finger of pearly white head, effervescent to its fullest potential. Lovely in every aspect. Lacing thickens like a beast on the glass.
S: Those Belgian yeasts create a lovely mix of dried bananas and clove. The fruity notes also belie hints of alcohol.
T: After a few seconds, those sweet banana notes come through like a Roman legion--what a fantastic flavor. It has an uncommon sweetness I don't remember tasting anywhere before, tripel or no, and I am quite smitten. Many beers popularly receive the title of "dessert beer," and I think I've found the king. This would pair amazingly with some creme brulee.
M: In continuation from the head, mouthfeel is fairly effervescent on the tongue, but sweet and mild. The finish is much more creamy.
O: Wow--I love a good tripel, and this looks to be the one to beat. What a great pleasure from those Trappist geniuses.
