    Hi,
    This is my first post, I thought the beer thread was a good starting point!
    I tried Maredsous recently and got disappointed a bit.

    Westmalle tripel got me happy.
    Usually I look for Triple Karmeliet, still my favorite.
    Cheers

    Westmalle Triple, Triple Karmeliet or Gulden Draak. Those are my "go to" ones. The Gulden Draak 9000 quad is also damn good. The New Belgian is not very balanced IMO, not a great representation of the type. Not sure if the NB ferments in the bottle, but the Karmeliet has lots of great flavor that can be attributed to this IMO.

    And yes, Unibroue makes faithful and good beers for the most part.

    agree with you on the new belgium.. Unibroue is decent but sort of like Leffe

    had the Tradewinds by the Bruery.. very good

    Wow- identical to my top three choices as well!
    That said, I have tried the Gulden Draak 9000 yet.
    (Big fan of the Westmalle Dubbel as well)

    For a company w/ "Belgium" in the name, I've always found it ironic that they don't make very good "Belgian-style" beers.
    Not hideous or anything, but certainly not world-class.

    Yep. They had a tasting event at a bar here last night and I tried the Sam Adams New World Tripel for the heck of it. Not a bad effort. Very smooth, but somewhat one-dimensional compared to the old-world types. I had a St Bernardus to compare with. More complex and interesting flavors out of those "old-world" beers in my tasting experience. Still, solid and worth a try.
