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.

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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.
