Originally brewed at St. Peter's Abbey in West Flanders, which in 2003 authorized Palm Breweries to take over production of its beers. This top-fermented ale, which undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle, is flavoured with a traditional blend of herbs from Bruges known as 'gruut'. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 14/01/2012

Appearance

Very slight haze, golden amber with huge head which subsides to creamy layer of foam leaving lacing in its wake.

Aroma

Caramel, clove and rosemary spice with ripe peach fruit.

Taste

Well-balanced palate belies the high alcohol strength with malts and hops bolstered by dry herbal flavours. Slight metalic note.

Aftertaste

Spoilt by lingering metallic flavour. Lacks the challenging complexity normally associated with a Belgian tripel.
