83An enjoyable dark golden beer from the latest recruit to the Trappist brewers' fraternity.

Brasserie Karmeliet Tripel Karmeliet

Brasserie Karmeliet Tripel Karmeliet
Sweet nose with hints of orange peel, vanilla, banana and spices. These flavours are also noticeable in the mouth, along with a honeyed sweetness. Complex and harmonious. Tastes very strong but still ...

Fruity, clean, dry, citrus, pink grapefruit. Good hop nose, clean bitterness. Sulphitic notes. Balanced full palate, dry and slightly bitter aftertaste. Astringent.

Chimay Blue / Grande Réserve

Chimay Blue / Grande Réserve
80Renowned port-like beer in a vintage-dated bottle. A little less chewiness would make it even more of a treat.

Chimay Red Premiere

Chimay Red Premiere
75A complex red ale that has bags of flavour but lacks a little refinement.

Chimay White / Cinq Cents

Chimay White / Cinq Cents
75Flavour-packed, but a little chewy, dark golden strong ale.

Goose Island Matilda
83A big-flavoured, fruity beer, a successful homage to the classic Belgian Trappist ale Orval and just as challenging, though not as dry. Brewed in part with wild yeasts.

Orval Orval
90A bit of a wild child. A bone dry amber beer partially fermented with a yeast that creates an acidic sourness. Totally refreshing and complex.

Sharp's 3

81Despite the unpromising aroma, this is a very refreshing, golden beer, especially for the strength. The tartness is an excellent foil for the sweetness of the malt.

Trappistes Rochefort 10

95Outstanding ruby ale with an abundance of taste.

Trappistes Rochefort 6
Tastingbeers.com Editors Choice - Winner

Trappistes Rochefort 6
95A red-amber beer that is notably thinner than its stablemate above (and the Rochefort 8 that falls between the two), but carrying similar flavours. Benefits hugely from a delicate finish.

Westmalle Dubbel

Westmalle Dubbel
75A pleasant bright ruby coloured ale that could use more depth of character.

Westmalle Tripel

Westmalle Tripel
73The dryness and complexity are impressive but this golden ale – widely recognised as the benchmark for the tripel style – is too obviously alcoholic.
