Not sure about this Tripel. Tastes very different to what I'm used to. Darker, less sweet and with yeast flavors that I'm not used to in Tripels. Can't tell when it was bottled and whether the flavors I'm detecting are intentional or the product of a prolonged wait on the shelves. It tastes a lot more like a very uncomplicated Strong Ale than a Tripel.

From a tall, 750 ml bottle, this brew is a golden color. Almost bronze, clear and relatively still, capped with a soapy white foam. The aroma is malty, spicy, with a Belgian yeast. The taste is warming, full, and robust. This is a solid beer.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Muted orange, slightly hinting at haze but with a nice classic middle column of carbonation. Rocking head, off white, a bit tinged yellow with creamy top and a solid three fingers off the pour. Nice settling down to a good finger, with big retention.

Classic tripel aroma. Slightly bready and honey sweet malts, with a good fruity and somewhat spicy phenolic kick. Hints a little warm, some good earthy hop tones slightly as well. Very inviting with low sensing sucrose sweetness.

First sip is a silky and rich mouthfeel with a touch of spicy carbonation. Creamy flavors of honey and sugar roll of the tongue in the mid palate. Slight caramel sweetness is added with some fruity tones and a bit of pine like bitterness that adds a nice contrast, and cuts on the aftertaste. Dense. Almost rich tasting, but manages to dial it down a bit.

A very solid tripel and memorable, with a bit of an iteresting malt presence as well.

Dark reddish copper with a thick sticky fluffy head. A slow pour still produced a decent amount of haze from the bottom of the bottle. Biscuits nose with malty sweet wheat bread and co2. Also an earthy musty funk with rich black soil. Delicious malty sweetness with a sandy salty mineral taste through the midsection. A tangy salty bite finished sharp with a steel iron aftertaste in the back of the mouth. Also a slight dash of meyer lemon; not sour but cutrussy. Mouthful is good. Mellow, smooth and easy drinking. Finish falls of fast leaving a thirsty parched feeling. Overall this is quite a tasty beer. Tons of flavor but nothing so over the top that it overwhelms. Could sit down and drink a few of these.. if I could ever find another again.

My first tripel. Delicious. Potent. Poured into a tulip glass. Smells wonderful and tastes equally wonderful. A little carbonated for my taste but who knows, could be how they're supposed to be. My wife took a sip and said "that's wine!"

A beautiful burnt orange pour, cloudy with a bubbly head. A cool bottle too. The smell is malty with lots of caramel. Highly carbonated with a nice head. It tastes pretty much how it smells. A very delicious brew that I'm glad I was able to find in my local liquor store.

330ml aged bottle into a Belgian snifter.
Pours hazy dark brown; most of the sediment added in the pour.

Nice fruity and lightly spicy aroma with figs and other dark fruits.

Flavor: Black bread, dark fruit notes including dried plum, as well as hints of cherries and dark chocolate. Slightly earthy.

Feel: Medium body with light carbonation.

O: dark and malty for a "Abbey Tripel".
