Westmalle Tripel

The Westmalle Trappist Tripel is another world-class beer from the trappist brewery at Westmalle Abbey. A deep golden colour with a good dense head leads the way for complex flavours and aromas. Delicate aromas of spice and citrus fruits are complemented by initial flavours of spices mingling with the alcohol. These initial notes then morph into peaches, citrus, pepper and coriander, with moderate bitter finish. It's just excellent.

The Trappist Abbey of Westmalle, located in the Flemish region of Belgium, has been brewing beer for over 150 years. By producing one of only 11 Trappist beers in the world, the monastery assures their charitable endeavours and their own means of subsistence.

    A classic. Great tripel that any Belgian beer or just blonde beer lover will.admire. At 9.5 it will sneak up on you with strength. (Posted on 12/03/2017)

  2. Legendary Review by Bumblebee
    Rating

    A world class beer from a world class brewery. If you've tried it already, you don't need me to sing its praises. If you haven't, squeeze one into your basket. (Posted on 18/02/2017)

  4. Interesting flavours Review by Heffer
    Rating

    A light coloured beer with a swirling mix of tastes to test your palette. There is a sharp bitterness with hints of citrus lurking amongst other fruity tones. Like all the stronger Belgian beers, it is one to drink slowly and savour. (Posted on 27/01/2017)

  5. Yum Review by Llamaman

    Slightly sweet, slightly spicy, very strong and totally delicious. (Posted on 25/01/2017)

  6. I could drink this anytime Review by wgardner
    Rating

    It's actually so well suited for either hot or cold weather, and the flavours are so complex, and change depending on the strength of the beer. (Posted on 18/01/2017)

  7. Another winner from Belgium Review by Ale x
    Rating

    A very pleasant strong beer as you would expect from a Trippel. Pale coloured with a sharp slightly bitter taste and hints of citrus fruitiness. (Posted on 13/01/2017)

  8. Not as excellent as their Dubbel Review by Shunt
    Rating

    I love Westmalle's Dubbel - and for me this isn't as good.
    That's not to say it isn't great, but their Dubbel just feels like a more complete beer.

    This Tripel is complex with the yeast adding to the uniqueness - not too sweet or bitter and definitely something to sip and take your time with. (Posted on 12/10/2016)

  9. Fantastic Trappist Review by ChrisBaker108
    Rating

    Really enjoyed this. This is a fantastic beer to end a drinking session with, perhaps shared between a few people as a bottle of port would be.
    Lots of flavour, a nice fizz and not too peachy/tropical as I sometimes find these. (Posted on 27/07/2016)

  10. Belgian style Review by Beer Baron
    Rating

    Strong, flavoursome, fizzy and a small bottle - almost everything a Belgian beer should be. (Posted on 03/07/2016)

  11. AMAZING Review by Sam
    Rating

    Absolutely delicious beer, subtle spiciness in the background generously compliments the yeasty, estery flavours of pear, peaches, banana and slight bubblegum, with a touch of citrus freshness. Dry on the finish with sweetness from the alcohol all the way down. A fantastic introduction to the triple style for myself, will be sure to keep this in in future. (Posted on 30/06/2016)

  12. Good strong beer Review by Mark T
    Rating

    ..but as a previous reviewer has already said, for me it is "not as good as the Dubbel"
    That's not to detract too much as the Dubbel is exceptional and this blond, stronger beer still has plenty to recommend it.
    A more citrus, fruity flavour which is rare in a 9.5% beer but this just about carries it off. (Posted on 23/06/2016)

    Classic strong beer which goes great with stews and red meats. Packs a punch... (Posted on 03/05/2016)

  15. Not quite ticking all the boxes Review by BTG
    Rating

    One of the few Belgium Tripel's that does not quite have the smoothness and aroma of the others, possibly it may suite other palates but not mine. (Posted on 08/03/2016)

  16. Wow Review by Snoops
    Rating

    Blmey, this came as a fantastic surprise. I usually prefer the darker ales but this was magnificent. Mightily strong and flavourful but so well balanced. Straight in as one of my favourites. (Posted on 06/03/2016)

  17. Splendid stuff Review by Snoops
    Rating

    A truly classic example of the Trappist style. Not as dark as some, hence my 4 rather than 5 stars, but still deee, rich and complex. It's strong but then it isn't a beer to be quaffed, it is to be savored and enjoyed slowly. (Posted on 11/02/2016)

  18. Heavy Review by Ninja Terrier
    Rating

    This beer kicks a big punch at 9.5% and backs it up with big flavour. This is not an everyday beer and need to be drank slowly to get the full benefit of its vast array of flavours. (Posted on 31/01/2016)

  19. Spice all the way. Review by Madrid Andy

    Beautiful with medium spiced Indian dishes. Definitely on my reorder list. (Posted on 30/12/2015)

  20. Beautiful Trappists Review by Londonjef
    Rating

    I absolutely love the beers from Westmalle, and their Tripel is nothing short of excellence. Their Dubbel is fantastic as well. I always try to have their beers in supply. (Posted on 17/12/2015)

  21. Not a good as the Dubbel Review by Seb

    But still a lovely beer, for fans of a Belgian beer it's awesome (Posted on 25/11/2015)

  22. My favourite Tripel Review by Phil Mackenzie
    Rating

    A really complex and delicate beer. Classically Belgian in that is not at all bitter, but it's strong as an ox. One to drink slowly and savour the delicious flavours. (Posted on 16/08/2015)

  23. Strong Review by Will77
    Rating

    One of the best, very strong so watch it if you have 3 or 4, but a real gem of a beer (Posted on 28/06/2015)

  24. mature taste Review by dodge
    Rating

    As I have aged I have grown to appreciate the idea of drinking a beer slowly for the pleasure of its aroma, and subtle tastes , not pints to be necked - and this is definitely one to be appreciated. Lovely (Posted on 20/06/2015)

  25. Great beer Review by Len From Leyton
    Rating

    Beautiful sweet tasting strong ale.
    It slides down easily but needs to be savoured slowly to appreciate. Thank you beerhawk for the trrappiste selection you stock. I am truly hooked. (Posted on 03/06/2015)

  26. Sweet and strong Review by Markiemark
    Rating

    Quite sweet and an odd flavour. Not really to my liking so only 3 stars (Posted on 23/04/2015)

  27. Another Favourite Review by McMaude
    Rating

    This is another beautiful Belgian Ale, still brewed by monks in one of only a handful of real 'trappist' ales in the world. Of the 10 or 11 recognised in the world, 6 of them are in Belgium.
    Golden in colour and with a large frothy head (if poured properly), this beer packs a real punch without compromising on flavour. At 9.5% it's another that has a complex flavour, and is better sipped rather than quaffed to enjoy all those subtle flavours. Again, comes with it's own glass - another corker! (Posted on 12/01/2015)

  28. One of my top 20 beers Review by Eric Rayner
    Rating

    No-one brews beer like the Belgians - they're pretty good at it, even if they do occasionally go off piste with all that fruit stuff. Westmalle is one of their best. It has strength and a wonderful complex sweetness from the various malts used. I prefer Maredsous, but this is definitely a great one to start a tour of Belgian beers. (Posted on 01/11/2014)

  29. Delicious but potent Review by JSG
    Rating

    If you are looking for a standard easy drinking beer, then turn around and head back out the door. Westmalle Tripel is more like a sipping drink, that way you can actually start to taste all the subtle spices that exist. Tons of flavour and most certainly a unique taste. Loved it and will be back for more! (Posted on 07/10/2014)
