11.2 oz brown bottle

Kapittel Abt Ale poured a cloudy dark gold color forming a 2-finger foamy and bubbly white head that held well. The head eventually reduced to a 1/2-finger foamy collar around my tulip glass. The nose was dominated by light fruit; i.e., apples, and pears followed by light peppery spice. The taste begins with a spicy fruit like apple and bananas followed by yeast, then light hops with a nice alcohol warming. Mouth feel is medium, creamy and has a generous amount of carbonation.

Kapittel Abt is not my favorite triple - however, a solid offering nonetheless.

330 ml. bottle. Pours an amber orange colour, with a big head that takes its time do fade, leaving a good lace. Smell of tropical fruits, spices (coriander, cloves), caramel... somedy said ripened cheese, I agree. Very sticky palate, full body. Taste of tropical fruits, caramel, sugar, honey, vanilla, spices. Great.

330ml bottle served in a Leffe chalice.

A: Pours a cloudy dark yellow to orange color forming a medium white aired head that dissipates quickly leaving practically no lacings in the glass. However, a thin layer remains forever on the top

S: Traditional Belgian Triple in the nose: Sweet, malty and spicy. Notes of pale grains, caramel malts, crystal malts, candy sugar, coriander, cloves, vanilla and honey. A bit fruity too with some notes of pears and figs. Very bready and earthy yeasts. Some flowery hops and alcohol in the end

T: Complex: Sweet upfont with notes of pale malts, caramel malts, crystal malts, candy sugar, coriander, cloves, vanilla and honey. Pears, figs and white grapes. Notes of white wine. Wheat and biscuits. Citrus hops and a modest but pleasant hoppy bitterness in the end. Light notes of alcohol despite the considerable ABV

M: Heavy body. Medium carbonation. Malty bittersweet aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Standard Belgian Triple. Complex and pleasant
