Lot 25/20/2011. Best before 8/2014.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruits, grape juice, and some mild spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a good aroma but the taste isn't as good in my opinion.

On tap in a stemmed tulip glass.

A-Light golden-orange color, one-plus finger fluffy white head and nice lacing. The look is Belgian Ale by the book.

S-Fruity wine-like smell, funky, Belgian wheat.

T- Funky Belgian yeast, fruity, mild spice.

M-Quite dry and tart for the style. Maybe the sweetness is tempered by the relatively low abv for a tripel. Good carbonation and body.

O- I look forword to having more of this beer. It's not the average tripel , seeming less malty and sweet than it should. But I liked it.

3.45/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Cloudy apricot brew, light carbonation, fluffy dense head that lasts awhile and leaves delicate tracing.

Smell: Clean notes of spice, fruit, and that always lovely candied sugar aroma common to Belgian ales. Mild pepper, hoppiness in the back notes.

Taste: Something of a letdown after the aroma, admittedly. Flavors are comparatively muted. Spice, some hints of citrus, light hops.

Mouthfeel: Clean and easy on the palate. No sense of cloying in the aftertaste.

Overall: This is a good beer, and it carries a lot of the characteristics that I find so appealing about Belgian brews. But even for a Tripel, something is missing in the taste. It's fine, certainly drinkable, just not overly enticing.

Not sure if this is the right place to review... WESTOEK Best Before 8/2014. Pours an extremely murky golden orange color...hint, of red, almost like a fresh grapefruit. Scent is filled with pleasant Belgian yeast aromas and ripe stone fruit, I get apricots and peaches. The bottle says this is a Flemish Triple Ale, and I can get some characteristics, but just not dry enough. Taste is extremely smooth and not spicy enough to be classified as a tripel, As the beer warms, the spiciness comes through. This beer is so complex and crazy, I don't know how to classify it. It's definitely a Belgian beer, but I don't know how to classify it otherwise. It has some subtle tartness (probably the Flemish influence), with some tart fruits and Belgian yeast flavors. Dry, but somewhat chewy. Mouthfeel is crisp and chewy at the same time. Drinkability is high, Overall, this beer is hard to explain. It is a great beer though, just in a league of its own.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a two inch puffy muffin top head that has reduced to a puffy layer below the rin of the glass. It is a hazey orange amber color with some clarity and bubbles coming up the side of the glass. Crazy lacing on the glass as the beer was drank too.

Smell: Everything one would expect from a triple. Apples, pears, vanilla, spices, golden raisins, yeasty esters, vanilla, bready malts, and Belgian candy.

Taste: Al the flavors mentioned above are there, but they seem a bit light and don't last long. Hugh.

Mouthfeel: smooth, light to medium bodied, a little chewy, some bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty average tripel for me. The taste good be a bit more cleaner and full bodied. Maybe at 6%, it seems to light for the style. Still good for a Belgium tripel though. Best beore date of 4/14 too.

268th Review
Served in a Struise cervoise

Enjoyed on a visit to the Struise shop in Brugge while touring around Belgium in early June 2012.

A: Light amber. Single (frothy white) fingernail head.

S: A very pronounced floral hop bouquet welcomes your nose to this beer. A touch of lemon, banana, caramel, and pale malt along with slight Belgian yeast/spice. Welcoming and enjoyable to smell!

T: Good balance of hops, fruit, bitterness, and spice here. Follows smell with Belgian yeast character very pronounced (maybe almost too much); however, very easy to drink.

M: Light/medium bodied with full carbonation.

O: A very crisp, refreshing, and enjoyable beer from a mastermind brewer (Urbain). Well done!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Lot 25/20/2011, Best before 8/2014

Pours a supremely hazy golden orange with a billowy head that leaves good lacing as it slowly recedes.

Nose is fruity and belgian. Fruit overwhelms any spicy characteristics. Pear and green apple dominate, some bright sugar.

Taste is a bit of a let down. Slight toffee in the finish. Alcohol is pretty prominent, not really hidden at all. Slight pear and candy sugar. Smarties as it warms a bit.

Mouthfeel is highly carbonated and medium with a nice silky texture to it.

Overall this seems a pedestrian tripel but it definitely grew on me throughout the whole experience.

3.83/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- Big rocky bubbles of white foam fills the glass. The brew is golden with and orange hew and highly carbonated. As you pour the rest in it becomes unfiltered and a cider like color.

S- Smells of a fruity Belgian yeast. Apples, pears, and a great floral aroma. Flower petals and honeysuckles. Ting of funkiness.

T- Flavor is that of apple and pears, a bit of candy and another fruit I can't put my hand on. There's a slight phenolic taste but not alcoholic. There is somewhat of a dried hop element here. And the taste has the honeysuckle component from the nose.

M- Body is between light and medium and highly carbonated. This is very drinkable. I'm bumping mouthfeel for drinkability.

O- Could easily drink at least 3-4 of these. Not the best tripel but probably one of the few you can have more than just one of. I was pleased with this and hope to see this on tap somewhere.
