Westmalle Trappist beer

by Vincent
Westmalle Tripple poured in a glass with it's bottle on the side

For more than 200 years now the monks in the Abbey of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in Westmalle have been brewing the famous Westmalle Triple beer. With a high alcohol content of 9% combined with a good mix of hops and malt it is absolutely a delight to drink. Once poured it reveals a lovely cloudy golden yellow/orange color and its foam is smooth but steady, giving an impression of calm… A strong taste of alcohol strengthens its fruity aroma. It also has excellent digestive qualities. Above is a picture of me enjoying one at home showing it’s bottle.
