Westmalle Trappist Tripel

     Westmalle Trappist Tripel (9.5%)

This will be a stomach rattler. Holy Jesus 9.5%! Smells like it will stab you. It smells of outside. Like you've been outside at 7pm and your clothes smell of wind. It's fizzy and complex as fuck. One of only twelve beers in the world that can be called 'Trappist'. Like your average priest, it's Trappist in the closet... (or R. Kelly.)

Hmm... it's not a stomach rattler, I take it back. It's fuckin' lovely and raspy, like a raspy hand bastard in your mouth. It's a long lingerer. 10 seconds later it's still tasty as fuck. Moorish. For its flavour to strength ratio it gets the Bob Law Ball Blower Stamp. Handle with care or be left walking around with the meat minus the veg.

They didn't really try at all with their labels either, so extra credit for the lads.
