HistoryMan (4) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2010 does not count
This is my first review. But during the Brussels Beer Weekend in early September 2010, I sampled at least one dozen triples over three days. This St. Martin Triple was one of my two favorites. (Chimay was the other) I’ve read that some other rate beer members don’t think as highly of it as I do, but I make no apologies for this preference. (Perhaps its just that my palate hasn’t evolved enough (from my american experience). This Brunehaut ale seemed exceptionally well-balanced. Full and rich, but not over-expressed in any direction.The color was dull gold/orange with a medium, firm head and medium body. Aroma-lemon/malt. Distinct carbonation. Yeast is slightly prominent, but I like that. Flavor is mild-sweet and leans to caramel, with a hint of raisin-lemon/citrus counterbalanced with a dose of hop-bite. (I’d love to have an endless supply)

glennmastrange (2331) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of grain and straw, dried grass and lemon for the hops, soap for the yeast with background notes of white wine and Coriander. Head is between frothy and fizzy, white with some slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy yet sparkling amber/orange. Flavor starts heavily acidic then finishes moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. A pretty good Tripel, but lacking a little more depth that I prefer in the style.
