Top-fermented abbey-style beer, Maredsous triple is apricot-orange in colour. It has a fine, unctuous white head. On the nose it is sweet, alcoholic, spicy and has malty depth. It has a full-bodied flavour, good mouthfeel and mild spiciness. The taste is acrid, yeasty and fruity with a well-balanced bitter aftertaste. Its sweetness stands in contrast to its alcohol content. It is a good strong beer, sweet and heady, which is a delight to those in the know.
