Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle. Hazy straw-colored pour with a stoic head of tight white foam. The aroma is lightly yeasty. But the beer delivers a full-blown kick of wild yeast as itís main character. Rich and full bodies. (#3939, 7/3/2010)

eManu (434) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 From a 33cl bottle at the BRUX-ALE Kuala Lumpur. Pours a gold blonde color and huge white head that stay long time. Aroma of malts and flowers. Flavors, complex, malts, grapefruits, light banana, hops, hints of spices and vanilla. Nice hops power, floral and nice sparkling bitterness. Strong flavors, some alcohol feel. Long lasting flavors and fresh bitterness. Very nice and enjoyable, quite complex overall. Really satifiying. wonderfull. One more please!

Spicy with a bit of honied sweetness. Clear yellow with a light body. Crisp flavor, almost pilseneresque. Tried with Dave and Jess at the Bruges Bierfest in 2012.

Aroma is a mellow, well-blended citrus and pine, light and fluffy like marshmallow versions of themselves. Head is so amazingly fluffy that even my middling pouring skills didnít destroy it. At the first sip, my eyes open wider. The last time that happened, I was drinking a Westvleteren 12 and then an Oesterstout. Thatís when you know youíre about to taste something impressive. This beer isnít as complex or as dark as those, being a tripel, but itís a nicely balanced flavor. Notes are icy butterscotch, coffee, toast, dry, roasty, banana, faint cider, grass, herbs, nuts, hay, a little floral, faint bubblegum... maybe some licorice and vanilla. Aftertaste is sprucey with a bit of citrus and dough. Itís very nice.

Bottle. Bright and clear golden color, medium white head, solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper, straw, hay. Taste starts sweet, then bitter and peppery with a bit of spice. Nice.

Holy white head of doom batman! I poped the top and foam damn near exploded out the bottle. The color is a blonde cloudy with yeast floaties. The aroma is yeasty ans a bit spicy and gives the impression of a full bodied brew. The taste is indeed yeasty and there is a sweet spicy note. The body is more of a medium body. You can feel the alcohol a bit as you swallow. Overall not a bad brew worth a buy and a rebuy

11.2oz. bottle sent by a pal.. returning from Belgian Beer Weekend. Seems a classic-triple. Bottle-conditioned, so pours a slightly oversized foamy white head. Malt/wheat aroma with a yeasty nose and some hop. Palate is simultenously warm and dry. Malt/Hop ratio present well-balanced flavor, leaning on corriander and yeast. Recommended! A very nice surprise. Iíd buy it if I could find it.

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) Iíve read that some other rate beer members donít think as highly of it as I do, but I make no apologies for this preference. (Perhaps its just that my palate hasnít 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. (Iíd love to have an endless supply)

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.
