Westmalle Tripel Trappist Ale

This beer is Excellent!!! One of my favourites.
A huge bright white head on a beautiful golden coloured beer.
A light cloudiness with some great streams of bubble up the sides of the chalice,

The aroma is sweet, spicy and a touch earthy and the feel is so rich and full it amazed me.

The tastes are SO complex. Some ginger sits right on top with hints of chocolate, berries and honey. A touch of earthiness and a bright but light citrus taste. The beer makes your whole mouth sparkle and fills it with flavours.
It is so rich feeling that you almost have to concentrate to get to the flavours at all, I am having a tough time describing them because they are so complex and well blended that it is difficult to tell them apart.
The finish is very long and lingering with a light earthiness and citrus tingle over a sweetness and honey like flavour.

I have had this one put away for a while now, waiting for a special day to try it again. A rainy, cold, and windy Christmas eve seemed like the time and I was certainly not disapointed.
This Trappist Ale has made it to my (very short) all time favourite list. If you have never had a Trappist Beer before this would be a good one to start with, then you can have a lot of fun trying to find a better one.

Westmalle Tripel

I lived in the Netherlands for a year. In the grocery stores, this was one of the beers staring me in the face everytime I went to pick up some food. Always ended up buying some of this. If this was there, you can imaging the pickings were plentiful. This was perhaps the best beer I discovered while in the region. It is 9.5%, but tastes divine. Too bad the price isn't the same in Ontario as it was over there...

I can only wish the price and

I can only wish the price and availability were the same.
I'm a happy guy when I see it at the LCBO.

Alexander Keith's Premium White

Not bad. Tastes just like the other offerings from Keith's with some cloves added.
Gold in color with a clumpy white head and an aroma of spice.
Leaves a funny taste in the mouth at the end that isn't quite as nice as some of the other Keith's stuff. I still like it but I would rather have an IPA by this brewer.



This stuff is total garbage. They should not be allowed to sell it as a "white beer", but then, they should not be allowed to call their IPA an IPA either. The original Mr. Keith must be rolling in his grave. I am sure he would not recognize the beer they sell now, nor would he approve.

This is absolute crap!
Looks like their erstwhile IPA.
Aroma is a bit sour and has a touch of cloves in it.
The taste is as bad as their "IPA", which isn't even close to an IPA, but has a touch of cloves added.
It is not nearly enough to offset the corn and rice tastes which fill this beer.
The original Alexander Keith must be rolling in his grave with the thought of someone using his good name to promote such pure crap.

If it is all that is being served at a party...LEAVE!

Beer Quote of the day

You know, nobody eats in England. Three or four pints of English beer a night fills you. I can't say I'm very impressed with the food in America. it's all sort of bland. Like turkey sandwiches.
