i was very happy to find this today as i love st b. brews.lets see if the tripel compares to the others.poured into a st bernardus trappist glass and was shown a super murky orange body with a thick,creamy white head that sat atop the brew nicely.i took a whiff and could smell apples,raisins,cookie dough,straw,and a tine bit of citurs.first sip was much of the same with a bit of honey and malt thrown in.man these monks sure do know how to brew a beer.this is yet another st bernardus masterpiece.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Bottle poured cloudy gold with a white long lasting fizzy head. Aromas of cookie, perfume,pineapple and honey. Palate was slick and fizzy. Flavors of cookie, vanilla, lemon, and pepper with a sweet finish.

pours a orangish golden hazy color, with a decent sized white lasting head, typical belgian style aroma, spices, fruit, alcohol, sweetness. i thought an 8% triple would be weak though, i was wrong this tasted all of 10% and just like its aroma, just add some carbonation, not bad, but not as good as the quadrupel.

Blonde with a white soapy head. Yeasty aroma. Sweet malty with vanilla and wheat character. Some light virginia tobacco is present and it is well balanced and quite refreshing for its strength.

Fiend (104) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2005
Light aroma with faint hops scent. A light coppery color with alot of yeast floating around. Not much in the flavor department but it did finish with a sour aftertaste.

Clear gold . Light yeast aroma. Banana flavour. Alcohol is very subdued. Clean and fine drinking but missing some character.

As a tripel aficionado, I found St Bernardus a bit disappointing. Don’t get me wrong--it has an appropriate degree of strength and range of flavors to be worthy of the Tripel title--but there didn’t seem to be anything distinctive to this specimen. It lacked spiciness (though to be fair, I drank this after a Fin Du Monde which blows the lights out in the spice arena), and it also lacked much distinctive yeast or hop character. Still, it’s respectable.

This was an excellent Triple. The smiling monk on the cover says it all. Small head on a yellow body. Sweet caramel start, dry bitter finish.

1-Apr-05 Light hop & malt aroma. Orange brown hazy colour, giid head and lacing. Heaps ’o’ hops and spiritus, fruit malt. Nice hoppy bitterness light mouth feel. A bit simple but appealing.

A Mes rate: A fine tripel. One of the very best next to St. Feuillien and the Rulles. Initially let down a little by the poor head (I have had this quite often so I know it’s not a one off) but that soon gets forgotten once sampled. Typical tripel body but a little more cloudy than usual. Great palate with just right carbonation. Tastes just like a tripel should but not so much of the floral notes as others. Citrus and spice as you would expect. Lovely sweet finish. Great stuff all round.
