This beer, with high fermentation, has a pale amber colour and a flowery, fruity taste with a harmonious balance between sweet and sour (8% alcohol content). This beer has a thick and vivid froth and strikes by its balanced taste with a delicate bitterness.

stison42 (318) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2007
Cloudy yellow and partilces can be seen. Light orangish aroma. Light, not a strong taste, but works. Decent, nothing bad, nothing good either.

11.2 oz bottle, best by date marked 31 12 06. Clear gold with a thick white head. Sweet, yeasty, fruity aromas, light sweet malt and bread. Flavors of sweet bread and fruit to start, a slight peppery note follows. Sweetish malt and bread finish, tinged with a light spiciness. Nice!

LIght amber hue, a little hazy, frothy off white head, fair lacing, citrus smell like lemon water, kind of creamy texture, soft carbonation, orange tang, average finish...slightly bitter, nice balance. Remeniscent of an orange creamsicle...Very nice. St. Bernard is consistently good.

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2007
This beer is very fruity. The nose is chock full of light fruits. The head is small, white, and dissipates quickly. The taste carries with it the heavy influences of light fruits and yeasts. Not a very heavy beer at all, but enjoyable.

Diablo9845 (62) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2007
Cloudy light brown/orange. Not as good as the ABT12 by a longshot but still nice. Medium amount of head and a sweet aroma. Very sweet taste and a nice bitterness. Alcohol is barely noticable. Overall, the little brother to the ABT12 but a respectable beer nonetheless.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2007
330 ml bottle, from BevMo LaJolla. Pours hazy, orange-golden color with a thick and fluffy white head that leaves heavy lace. Wonderful tripel aroma, sweet and fruity, with citrus and floral notes, bready, spicy yeasts and a little lemon zest. Flavor follows the same general character with (as the commercial deScription says) "a harmonious balance between sweet and sour" featuring tangerine, sourdough, floral hops, and rich, mellow yeast. The alcohol is well hidden among the cacophany of tastes. Full body and assertively creamy carbonation. Very nice tripel!

hapjydeuce (983) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 7, 2007
Probably one of the better tripels I have had in a while. Cool translucent honey/golden color with a small white head that doesnt last too long. aroma of sugared bananas, light malt, yeast. Flavor is typical of a good tripel, loaded hops and citrus, well-balanced with the yeasty flavors and moderately high warming alcohol content. Finishes slightly dry with a semi-thick feel and numbness to the palate. A pretty good tripel, but it doesnt even come close to the hearty maltiness of the Abt 12
