Great tripel. Nice opague yellow with lively carbonation. Subtle flavor that is remarkably fresh for a tripel. Flavor of yeast and white wine. Recommended!

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with thin but nice looking white head. Notes of pear, apricot, orange and pepper. Slightly boozy but that does not detract. Overall another great offering from St Bernardus.

Nose is yeast, grass, straw, herbal notes, slight sweet vanilla. Taste is herbal, pear, peach yeast, a fleeting initial sour leading to bread, soft sweet tropical tones before moving to a darker, stickier more alcohol heavy not in the finish. Mouthfeel is good. Outstanding beer.

commonmac (336) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle purchased at Haskell’s consumed in Moeder Lambic glass. Hazy light orange. Persistent head. Spicy, bready aroma bringing to mind some of the better Belgian tripels I’ve tried. Taste has some citrus characteristics, evenly ever so slightly sour. Cloying tendency towards the end. Honestly would appreciate a little more sweetness but that’s being pretty nitpicky. Even though it’s probably not the first St. Bernardus I would order, I would still love the shake the hand of the monk who crafted this delightful tripel.

Big bottle from Haskells. Beautiful hazy light orange with nice white head. Smells sweet and sour with some yeast funk trailing. Nice aroma. Slightly tangy. Can taste alcohol slightly but more of the clean sweetness and pungent light sourness. Very slight bread but more on the aroma. Finishes with yeast, but then a last slightly sour tang hits. Great balance though, and really good long lasting bite. The monks come through again.

Im Glas gelb, orange, leicht trüb und schaumig. In der Nase hefige, blumige Noten, brotig, Honig. Am Gaumen Hefe, Süße, leicht alkoholisch, blumig am Abgang. Asufüllend, aber mit vergleichsweise wenig Kohlensäure für ein Tripel.

Bottle gifted from a friend after they’d held on to it for a few years, so is slightly aged. Boozy, sherry-like smell - and lots of raisin and wood flavours coming out. Would be interesting to compare this with a ’fresh’ bottle too.

Bif (1456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick head that fades to good lacing. Aroma of fruit, citrus with bit of spice in the background. Taste of tropical fruit, bit of citrus and spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth and well balanced. No hint of the 8% ABV. Enjoyable beer that is easy to drink.
