Pours a cloudy golden yellow with highly active carbonation and excessive head. Aroma of tart grapes. Taste is sweet with a sharp bite that comes from the background to the foreground quickly to overtake the taste. The finish is a bittery cider with lingering sourness.

I had been looking forward for a chance to try this new (to me) Tripel for a couple weeks before I got a chance to get to it in my cellar so I was somewhat alarmed when it exploded unceremoniously over my countertop when I popped the cap. The beer remaining was cloudy orange golden in color and capped by a long lasting head of largish bubbles. The nose is quite spicy and bready. I am not really pulling cloves or anything specifically, just a general spicy warmth and a bit of banana-like juiciness. It is kind of nice but there is a bit of a metallic undertone that comes out more once tasted. The palate is kind of sticky and sluggish, oily and lacking the creamy carbonation that makes the best big Belgians great. Gushing aside, this is a pretty disappointing Belgian in general.

In the glass it has a very cloudy pale yellow color. The foam erupted from the bottle and formed a huge head. Aroma has some citrus and floral to it. Taste is very smooth with a little orange flavor and some grass. Kind of earthy. Finish is very smooth. Would definitely recommend it.

lots of character, strong flavor with a flowering syrupy taste of malts and grainy after taste. while the palate is thin the beer is strong overall. great stuff.

11,2 oz bottle. It pours a nice cloudy golden peach color with a massive white head. As it recedes it leaves some nice lacing. This is a pretty fragrant tripel. It has a ton of honey and orange notes. Very yeast and tangy. The taste is classic tripel. It has a nice spiciness to it, a ton of sweetness, and a smooth fruitiness. It is a simple but enjoyable take at the style. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-31-2010 23:30:36

The aroma is spicy and floral with candy, incense, malt, and citrus. The appearance is slightly cloudy gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth and the finish is hot. The beer is decent overall but not a favorite.

Pour is a hazy blonde with an average white head. Aroma is fruity with a bit of lavender. Flavor is a dull malt with some fruitness toward the end. A citrus aftertaste is left on the tounge as this goes down. Kinda weak for a tripel still it has a few things going for it. Much better out there.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 5, 2011
An ok tripel, though not really remarkable in most facets. St. Martin pours a pale, brownish gold with a large, slightly off white head. Aroma has notes of citrus and yeast. Flavor is light citrus, yeast, some alcohol, and bready. Not bad, but the flavors dont stand out much.

Cloudy golden yellow pour, edging towards orange. Tons of head when I opened the bottle (obviously it didnt travel well, it had been in my refrigerator for about 5 hours already). Most of the head dissipated, but quite a bit lingered. Good aroma of citrus (orange and lemon) with a little breadiness, plus some spice. Strong bitter in the taste, closer to grapefruit than the aroma would imply. Pretty much just that straight-tone flavor lingered, though there was a hint of malt after a wait. Id consider this one a tease -- if it tasted like it smelled, it would have been really good, but too much bitterness for my liking. Maybe it didnt travel well in more ways than one.

11.2oz bottle split. Hazy golden orange color. Sweet, crisp, with a little more hop character than a typical Tripel. Really rich and sweet malt tones. Honey, straw,wheat, mint..lots of subtle nuances. A pretty solid offering.
