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.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Bottled. Pours clear golden with fair white head, lots of sediment in the bottle still. Aroma is pretty yeasty with bready maltiness behind. Kinda flat carbonation-wise but with a nice mouthfeel. Flavor has good maltiness with a slight spiciness and mild fruitiness. Not really any outstanding flavors in this, it’s well balanced I guess, yeasty like it should be, and quite good overall. Finish is fairly dry and it has a decent bitterness to it. If it’s truly 8% abv, I would say it is well disguised. I’ll have another to decide.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle, bottle has aged a bit, much of the wheat and yeast has formed into large floaties, so i just poured slow fro m he top, it formed a frothy white head that left quickly but had nice lacing. Light fruity tart notes, with some apricot, and tangerine notes. Pours cloudy light gold color. Not as fruity or tart as the aroma lets on, rather dry with subtle spice. Fairly carbonated. Hops are slighly metallic. Not too bad, I prefer it over the fruitier triples, also alcohol is well hidden and yeast is not too dominate. Not bad at all.

Goodgrief (1965) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Nov 2005 - I have to admit, as abt 12 is my fav beer and I’ve been on a trippel kick lately, that I had high expectations for this and was a tad disappointed. Beer poured light yellow with orangey tints with a huge head which disappeared rather quickly. Taste was tart and sour with a some sweet fruits and a nice hop twang finish. A good trippel, but not on par with best ones.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Very cloudy pale peach color with a generous fluffy white head. Aroma of spice from the yeast and fruity with white grape. Flavor starts peppery and spicy with fruit (pear, grape) a light alcohol burn and a spicy, citrus dry finish. Medium body is creamy and tangy with lively carbonation.

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - SEP 27, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2007 12 oz bottle poured hazy orange little white head that turns to some lace. Belgium yeast, fruit and malt aroma, clean mouth feel some light carbonation. The taste on this one is lightly sweet malty fruity start slightly hoppy bitter finish. Not one of my favorite tripel’s but good non the less

This was rather disapointing I had just expected more of this. The aroma is rather boring for a tripel, a bit of yeast and alcohol. The flavor is of alcohol, with a tint of fruit and a bitter aftertaste. After some time you can taste the fruit better and it gets better for each zip.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Bottle. prob one of my favorite tripels to date - i haven’t had too many because they are just not my style of beer. hints of fruits, vanilla, lots of yeast, and some spice. really not too bad - similar traits in mouthfeel to the other st. bernardus brews. but in the end, give me the 12 anyday!!!

From the bottle. Pours with a cloudy, hazy golden colour. Decent fruity flavour. Where this one loses points for me is in the palate, It has a wicked aftertaste that just lingers on and on.
