In 1920, well before the production of the famous Trappist Rochefort 6-8-10 in the 1950s, the monks at Rochefort brewed an extra-strong blonde beer and continued brewing it for several years. Now, 100 years later the monks are very happy to offer a strong blonde beer inspired by the original recipe: The Trappist Rochefort Triple Extra.

330 ml bottle poured into a Tulip.

Hazy golden-orange pour with lots of suspended sediment and a three finger antique-white head. Foam is sudsy but persists and rises easily with a swirl. Light and fairly clean aroma, hints of Belgian yeast and candied sugar aromas rising later as it warms. Dry and a touch boozy to open with golden raisin coming on the more sweet back. Alcohol flavor gives it an overall sharp taste. The medium body is creamy with moderate carbonation. A little disappointing but I should have decanted this one.

Good Belgian Tripel. A bit more boozy than some of my favorites. On the initial pour from an 11.2 oz bottle into my Chimay goblet, this beer featured a huge foamy white head with good retention and a bit of filmy lacing. Most Tripels have a more delicate bubbly white head that fades fast. This beer has excellent head retention. The color on the first pour was a light, copper - almost clear. Subsequent pours produced lots of sediment and a darker, very hazy amber/orange color Aroma and taste included light fruit (apples and pears), some peppery spicing, and a good Belgian yeasty taste. Not quite up to par with some favorites, but still well done. Mouthfeel showed an un-Tripel-like alcohol presence on the first pour that eases up as you drink it. Enjoyable, but I had expected a bit more.

1/5/2024, First beer of the new year, and an excellent choice at that! Enjoying fireside at home.

A thick golden pour, fairly opaque, and lots of floaties.

Aroma is very full of effervescence, banana, malt, clove, a little tangerine, and, well, get this...it actually has an aroma of "beer".

Immediate brightness from the carbonation in the mouth. Getting banana, clove, candy sweetness, slight orang rind bitterness on the back of the tongue.

There is a funk and tang here not found in modern tripels. There is no artificial flavor in the world that can replicate the complexity of this heritage yeast flavor. On the nose, it's extremely funky and effervescent, with a ton of complex yeast smell. The flavor is a bit more funky and boozy than I expected, which is to say this is a beer nerd's beer. If you are looking for something sweet and drinkable and fun at a party, this isn't it. A casual beer drinker might find this bitter or too strange. The complexity is meditative-level. It tastes like everything, and the flavor shifts as you drink it. It's wild.

a bittersweet affair. struck me as being kinda "spriggy," maybe even a little floral dish-soapy nuance in there (a quality i just love in Tripel Karmeliet however). it's a fine effort, of course, but i'm not enthused to crave for more.

Great beer if served at the suggested serving temp in a Trappist glass. Apple, spicy, smooth, low bitterness.

The beer pours a voluminous white head that dissipates fairly quickly but still leaves a moderate film of the foam on the surface. The beer itself is a cloudy orange amber color that looks really nice.

The smell is pretty good. It has a sweet wheat smell and Belgian spices alongside a light orange bitter hop note.

The taste is pretty good. It starts with a sweet wheat note and light orange hop note with light and bready malt notes complementing it. It also has a slightly boozy note at the end of it that doesn't exactly detract from it.

The mouthfeel is pretty good. It has a medium body and very fizzy carbonation throughout. It has a slightly dry finish.

Overall, a pretty good beer that's a bit different than the average Trippel. It's slightly more boozy but still drinkable. It's worth trying when available.

Trappistes Rochefort

Triple Extra (2020) Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sain...

Belgian Tripel

Spicy grains, tangy and sour yeast to the max of wild complexity. Effervescent, airy and soft feel. Only the authentic Trappistes can achieve this level of brilliant complexity and balance within these Belgian styles. It's a beautiful creation.

Pours an unfiltered golden color with a creamy, luxurious bone white head. Gorgeous tripel. The nose features the fruity esters noted for the style, as well as some clove, sweet malt, and a bit of pepper.

The fruity esters are forward on the taste and fit perfectly with the bit of clove and spicy pepper mid-palate, with the sweet malt providing a rich, lingering finish. Truly a world class sipper.

The mouthfeel is medium and a bit creamy, perfect for the style. This is world class stuff, IMHO.

11.2 oz bottle

Pours hazy golden yellow orange with a thick dense creamy white foam head. Smells really clean, crisp and refreshing, with sugary sweet notes of pale bready biscuity malts, light honey, hints of citrus, spice, white pepper, orange, lemon, apricot, melon, pear, slight phenols, subtle barnyard, hay, tea, mint, with floral earthy herbal grassy hops. Tastes like strong sweet pale malt, honey, spices, refreshing citrus, piney hop notes, some white pepper, orange, lemon, apricot, clove, woody cedar, subtle pear, with mint, tea, and earthy herbal floral grass. Feels medium-full bodied, creamy, thick and plush with smooth moderate carbonation. Overall a nice Belgian tripel.
