Bottle as gift @home Pours clear dark golden with a medium white head that doesnt dissipate, nice lacing. Malty and yeasty to the nose. Aroma is bready malts, a tad floral, little hops. High ABV is not well hidden, though still quite appropriate. The beer is quite fizzy, fizz is very audible. Body is quite heavy, doesnt drink easily, which is okay, Id feel great just taking a few hours to finish this beer. The fresh fizz is replaced by more booze and heavyness later. Quite a nice, though standard, tripel.

Pours hazy golden, standard whitish to creamy head. The aromas are round and pleasant, maybe subtle, fruity, malty and a bit spicy. As for the taste, it is almost like a white wine in character, complex and smooth, with a well hidden alcohol content, hints of sweetness and a fabulous (but mellow) fruit-like tone that the Belgians seem to love so much. The flavours themselves are not round and deep like those in BSAles, but, instead, more delicate and fragile in a way that is reminiscent of white wines. Very nice. The body is medium and well developed, and the carbonation is medium to low. The finish is longish with a detectable presence of alcohol... though, youll actually detect that when you stand up and walk somewhere else. Decent one.

11.2 oz. stubby bottle thanks to weihenweizen. Label reads Bottled on 2013/07/03. Side by side comparison with St. Barnardus Tripel. Golden with a Amber like hue, thin head. Aroma has big yeast Phenols, banana, sugar, mild sweet malt,

The flavor mirrors the aroma with notes of peach. The major off putting thing is the high level of alcohol that can still be tasted during and after the sip. Sharp amounts even after the length of time it had to develop in the bottle. In all honesty, St. Bernardus wins this taste test hands down.

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Peachy sweet nose, big fumes, light yeast. Light orange/amber color. Rich fruity initial, sugary, syrupy thick sweetness, some alcohol burn, and a tiny bit of oxidation. Medium-heavy body. Okay. Heavy and very full.

Enorm mooi hier met mooie schuimkraag. Lekkere zoete triple met een bittere nasmaak. Mist in mijn ogen karakter en heeft een te wat simpele smaak. Lekker bier maar geen absolute topper.

jamaty (1239) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Dorada clara, con espuma ligera. Efervescencia notable. Aroma ctrico ligeramente especiado. Gusto balanceado, ni dulce ni amargo, algo plano. Limn, banana y algo de especias. Pese a que tiene bastante ms alcohol que casi todas las triples, se nota menos que en algunas. No especialmente reseable, e inferior a otras de la marca.
