COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hazy yellow coloured, some light carbonation and a large creamy white head. Sweet yeasty fruity aroma (pear, apple hints). Full Palate. Finish is dry yeasty, some sweet alcoholic bitter touches. Very nice balanced beer.

Bottle. Nice big white head with excellent duration. Color is light golden and a bit hazy. Aroma is powerful with fruits and yeast. Taste is complex with fruits and spices.

Pours a copper amber with a big frothy white head. Smells of typical tripel noters, citrus and sweet malts. The taste is very sweet. Candy sugar, orange citrus, and sweet malts are all present in the taste. This is about as solid of a Belgian tripel as there is. It defines the style very well, and I would use this one as a clasic example of what one should taste like for someone new.

JoeinDahlem (1377) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2007
Thin amber color, sticky lasting head, smell of dark honey or molasses. Flavor: Alcohol is noticeable but not dominant; mild, brief sweetness of unripe pear becomes mild bitterness. Finish of hops and subtle alcohol. Damn pleasant.

Dorqui (2145) - Brescia, ITALY - FEB 11, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled. Much voluminous and creamy head, good resistance. Yellow clearly color, much fraught, solid and bare of fizz. Rather light scent with malty aromas, sugary, alcohol, aged cereals. Wrapping and much alcoholic taste with a structured body. Much warmth, smooths down and sweetish with agreeable notes of clear mildew and stum.

I had this beer at a tasting and its percentile is well-deserved. It was fruity but didnít have any lead characters that I was aware of. Another fine example of Belgian brewing.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2007
[bottle] Very mellow fruity aroma. Hazy amber in color, with a short white head. Very rich fruit flavors, like pear and apple, with bready yeast background. Alcohol is quite apparent, along with some strong carbonation. Not my favorite St. Bernardus beer, but still quite good.
