3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap into small tulip, Falling Rock Tap House, Denver. Pale orange beer with a thick creamy foam head of eggshell color, somewhat rocky. The head begins to leave a beautiful doilie lace, although it turns sudsy later. Looks much like Duvel. Smells like cloves, corriander, peaches and cream, and graham crackers. Creamy sweetness up front, watered-down orange juice in the middle which lingers into the finish. The finish is also mostly peppery and long lingering, with corriander and a slightly charred driness. The finish is wonderful, but the main thrust of the beer is lackluster, mostly containing the watered-down OJ and a pale attempt at complexity embodied in a darker dehydrated apricot flavor. Light to medium body, a bit thin.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2006 ~12oz. bottle. Pours a medium amber color with a nice white head that lingers for a good bit. Nice lacing. Slightly hazy with some visible chunkies. Pleasant aroma with definite bready yeast and to me an odor that smells like grape juice. Medium bodied and well carbonated. That grape juice presence is also in taste along with some yeast. Decent bitterness lingers lightly on the palate. Quite enjoyable. 8/3/8/3/17<P> Numbers stand nearly the same on a small bottle opened in Dec. ’06. Hazy, medium amber colored with some yeast sediment along the sides of the Chimay glass. Long lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is pleasant, bready and still that grape juice quality in taste and flavor. Medium bodied. Really quite a pleasant and balanced tripel to drink. Well done.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours from the bottle to a hzy golden orange with thick white head that stays for the whole beer, and reduces to excellent lacing. I noticed the strong hoopy dark fruit aroma as soon as I opened the bottle. Flavor was more of the same, yet with a nice blend of citrus fruit, similar to an IPA. Beer finished off to a perfect palate, where the hoppy bitterness mixed well with the 8% alcohol and a hint of malty sweetness. A most excellent beer.

11.2 oz bottle: Pours a dull hazy orange with minimal head. It has the thick yeasty bits typical of most St. Bernardus beers. This triple is nicely balanced with a sweet start and a mildly spicy finish. Alcohol blends in quite well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve never seen so much unfiltered goodness. There were a frightening amount of chunks floating in the glass after I poured the bottle. Very spicy! Excellent as it got warmer...like a meal...only liquid and refreshing. Warmed my head fast too, at 8% .
