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.

Bottle. Cloudy rust orange color. Suprisingly small head and no visible carbonation. Orange, lemon, corriander, and honey aroma - all sweet, to whiff of hops. While the hops were not noticed in the smell, they are apparent to the taste. Spicy at first with a citrus zing, it gives way to a dry ending. With a good array of hops, this is one of the more even (an in my opinion mature) abbey version I have come across. It has less of a hot alcohol feels than other strong Belgians. A nice change, I will look for this standout again.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2007
Peachy straw colour, very hazy, massive rocky soapsuds head with eternal retention and thick lace. Yeasty and vaguely fruity aroma. Sweet malt, bready, fruity, and a peppery dryness that is quite nice. Well hidden alcohol, medium sweetness. A solid approachable triple, but nothing really outstanding for me.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 29, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a large long lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus, sweet malt, and floral hops. Taste is the same with hints of yeast spice and mild bitterness. A very good Tripel.

Hazy golden color with decent head. Aroma is slightly sour and fruity. Flavor is well balanced between sweet and bitter, a little extra sour. Quite bubbly. Not bad.

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!

acearl (444) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2007
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.
