Westmalle Trappist Tripel

This is one of those classics I should have tried a while ago, but didn’t get around to it until now. This is a very good beer in a class of beers that is hard to beat. I would not call this one my favorite of Trappist Tripels, but it is a strong contender. It pours an gold to orangey color with a thick, fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is yeast with a little biscuit. The flavor is a little pear, a hint of orange with a good bit of the banana-like flavor of the yeast. Don’t expect much of a hop bite. It’s powerful at 9.5% ABV, but you would never know it. It drinks like a much lighter beer. I give it four of out five proper pints.
