Westmalle Tripel

Type: belgian ale
Origin: Westmalle, Belgium
Price: €3.40 per 12 oz in Netherlands

One of the 7 trappist breweries, Westmalle is truly fantastic. And it is cheap as hell in Europe. I got this in a bar across the street from my hostel in Amsterdam and Sol was more expensive on the menu. Here is photo proof:

Anyways, this is an extraordinary beer. It has a nice golden color with a fizzy champagne style head. The flavors are very similar to a stereotypical belgian tripel, but with a surprising bitterness. The taste is very light and sweet at the beginning, but comes on strong on the finish.
