Courtesy of bditty187. Pours a hazy orange color with a thick, frothy two finger head that slowly settles to soapy cap and leaves behind sheets of lace. Smell; slighty peppery to start, and then some lemon zest comes through along with bubblegum and cloves. Taste; the citrus flavors stand out up front (lemon & oranges), with a nice bit of bread dough in the middle and finishing with the peppery spices and cloves with a touch of banana pushing through. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy, with really nice carbonation.

Wow. Another great Ale from St. Bernardus. Bottle. Pours a nice golen brown Nice aromo. Smells of yeast and fruit. You do not notice the alcohol in this very much. Would be easy to drink to many of them. Sweet fruity flavor but balanced very well. Another great job by St. Bernardus.

pours a nice golden color, with a lasting white head. tart, fruity, and sort of spicy. pretty sweet but enough bitterness/bite in it to balance it nicely.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Aroma is very fruity..pear and apple stand out and impart an almost vinous aroma. Hazy yellow/gold in color with a large bubbly white head. Very fruity and yeasty. Creamy even. The fruit components are more of the apple with a dollop of sweet cream thrown in. Very nice.

Yeasty, vinegary aroma. Color is like that of a hot cider, head is about 3/4 inch of white foam. Tastes faintly friuty, hops are not very strong but still present, surprisingly smooth for a beer of this alcohol level. Alcohol flavor is barely noticable when compared with it’s cousin the Abt 12.

All in all an excellant beer, not as expensive as Rochefort Trappist Ale, so you can buy more. But, it is VERY good !!!!!

DerWeg (1494) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2005
33 cl, smooth full-bodied tripel with surprisingly assertive bit of hops, and more than a little complex fruit character. Creamy and dangerously drinkable, I just can’t knock what these brewers do. Quite balanced and worth buying several of.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Bottle - aroma is that of yeast. A touch of malt. Pure white head of creamy foam. Dirty gold with tons of suspended floaties ... have you ever seen that in a bad beer? Yeasty and fruity flavor. Not quite as complex as expected, but still nice. Full-bodied. A very nice brew!

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2005
Cloudy orange colour with a fizzy white head. The nose is yeasty and candyish, sweet with a nice tropical fruit presence - mango. The body is strong with yeast, predominantly yeasty. A bit too yeasty for a tripel if you ask me.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - DEC 14, 2005
bottle in france 33cl, can aquire in maryland. very sweet, not as carbonated as I would expect from a tripel, perhaps because I am use to sampleing tripels in the states where they have fermented more and lost sweetness.
