Not sure if this is the right place to review... WESTOEK Best Before 8/2014. Pours an extremely murky golden orange color...hint, of red, almost like a fresh grapefruit. Scent is filled with pleasant Belgian yeast aromas and ripe stone fruit, I get apricots and peaches. The bottle says this is a Flemish Triple Ale, and I can get some characteristics, but just not dry enough. Taste is extremely smooth and not spicy enough to be classified as a tripel, As the beer warms, the spiciness comes through. This beer is so complex and crazy, I don't know how to classify it. It's definitely a Belgian beer, but I don't know how to classify it otherwise. It has some subtle tartness (probably the Flemish influence), with some tart fruits and Belgian yeast flavors. Dry, but somewhat chewy. Mouthfeel is crisp and chewy at the same time. Drinkability is high, Overall, this beer is hard to explain. It is a great beer though, just in a league of its own.

Served in a Struise cervoise
Enjoyed on a visit to the Struise shop in Brugge while touring around Belgium in early June 2012.
A: Light amber. Single (frothy white) fingernail head.
S: A very pronounced floral hop bouquet welcomes your nose to this beer. A touch of lemon, banana, caramel, and pale malt along with slight Belgian yeast/spice. Welcoming and enjoyable to smell!
T: Good balance of hops, fruit, bitterness, and spice here. Follows smell with Belgian yeast character very pronounced (maybe almost too much); however, very easy to drink.
M: Light/medium bodied with full carbonation.
O: A very crisp, refreshing, and enjoyable beer from a mastermind brewer (Urbain). Well done!
Serving type: on-tap
