Light amber in color with a thick white head. Nice with light fruity and spicey notes. The alcohol is present and so is a little lingering sweetness.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Pours a pale straw color with frothy white head. Fruity aroma with a decent amount of yeast and spice. Flavor is a little underwhelming: banana, pear, apricot, hint of citrus, a bit of nuttiness and yeast. Palate is nice though.

Cloudy pale yellow straw color with a decent head. Nice head, nice smell, nice taste. Somewhat yeasty. Strong typical belgian smell and taste. Malty with strong alcohlic flavors.

pale yellow, high rate of carbonation, very very traditional Belgian. aroma kind of offensive, not a fan really

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2007
11.2 pours a thickly hazed deep dark orange shade. tall, frothy, white head lasts long and leaves lots of heavy lacing. great aroma of sweet apricots, bananas, mild perfume and esters. this is a very full bodied tripel for sure. the heavy oil mouthfeel is fuller than most i’ve tried. very creamy and round through the finish. quite crisp with a thick butterscotch and toffee sweetness. dry bready finish has only the slightest hint of alcohol. excellent.

naivepegasus (360) - USA - OCT 12, 2007
Pours a murky orange with a light, soapy, rapidly dissipating head. Slightly sour, citrus aroma. Very spicy, citrusy taste. An interesting beer, but not entirely what I expected from a Bernardus.

brianbuntz (49) - Santa Monica, California, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Pours a light amber with frothy head. Smell of tropical fruit, honey, and spice. Nice, thick mouthfeel. Wouldn’t have guessed that this has an alcohol content of 8%--it’s well hidden.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 A thick and meaty Belgian tripel - probably the densest tripel I ever tasted. Usually tasty bitterness with flowery banana type flavors - well done....I would recommend this for those who especially enjoy triples,not for novices.
