330ml bottle - wow, another 'new' Trappist brewery? Can't say no to that.

This beer pours a clear, medium bronzed amber colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat fizzy ecru head, which leaves some random chunky and streaky lace around the glass as it slowly fades away.

It smells of bready and crackery pale malt, estery floral notes, a muddled citrus and black berry fruitiness, edgy yeast, some indistinct spiciness, and very plain earthy, musty, and herbal noble hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy pale malt, a lesser caramel sweetness, more hard to pin down earthy spice, children's cherry cough syrup, some phenolic yeastiness, a bit of pithy bar-top nuts, and some still very understated leafy, herbal, and floral green hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly active in its swirling and probing frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and not really all that smooth, as the spice and yeast don't do anyone any favours here. It finishes trending dry, for the same reasons just elucidated.

Overall - yeah, this is no more a 'tripel', than I am a Trappist monk. Rather, it comes off more as a dubbel, and a so-so one at that, with the spice and yeast kind of acting all overbearing and such. At any rate, glad I got to try it, but I don't think I shall be revisiting it.

6/10/18 bottling date, I assume bottled the year before?

A: Pours medium brown with an enormous effervescent light brown head. Big and fluffy it fizzes loudly but takes quite some time to settle down regardless. Very little lacing remains.

S: Light grass and floral notes. Hints of citrus and then a heavy bready malt base pokes through.

T: More of the same up front, some subtle noble hops. Some herbal hops and then a very nice grainy malt. It's kinda bready, like a crusty rye bread perhaps? Some decent spice in there too, black pepper I think. Just a touch of bitterness. Aftertaste is all stale bread crusts and hint of belgian yeast spices.

M: Medium bodied, pretty plain.

O: Huh, a tripel? I didn't actually realize it was a tripel, it doesn't look or taste like one at all in my opinion. Definitely on the bitter/unsweet end of tripels if that's the case. It's quite good don't get me wrong, it's just unlike any tripel I've had so far. I did enjoy it however, I really like that crusty bread malt flavor combined with the belgian yeast spices.

Orange with a finger and a half of light tan head. Heavy lacing.

Sweet aroma of candied oranges, cocktail cherries and some slight yeast.

More balanced taste. A hint of fruit and yeast again, but balanced by a nice dull bitterness and hint of nuttiness.

Smooth creamy feel with a touch of carbonation. Maybe not as memorable as.some of its brethren, but quite satisfying.

Pours much darker than your typical Tripel. It's brown and with a huge head. More bitter and hoppy than other examples of the style by Trappist breweries. Restrained sweetness. Some yeasty notes as well as some candi sugar. Medium body.

Pours hazy brown/reddish/amber with thick off-white head, good retenion, yeast sediment in a bottle.
Smell - caramel, yeasts, candied fruits, spices.
Taste - caramel, fruits - peach, orange, apricot, spicy, earthy hops in the finish.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry.
Not classic tripel, but still excellent.

I admit that I love Trappist beers. I've had them from 10 of the 11. This one was very tasty in the Trappist tradition. Low hop bitterness lets the flavor come through. It's not easy to find this one, but if you ever get a chance try it!

Amber color, almost clear. The liquid covers a large, dense, creamy foam, cream color.
Hop aroma, delicately, but for this type of beer a very seductive, fruity, noticeable in the background notes of forest and caramel.
Notes of caramel flavor is pronounced, fantastic fruitiness gets along with caramel forming a good team, again forest, in the background herbal accents.
Hop bitterness at the finish, with a light fruity note Herbal
High saturation, here fits ..
