The body is a light straw color with a quickly fleeting white head. Has a very yeast filled aroma with a little bit of spice and noble hops aroma- from the saaz. The flavor has a little bit of bubblegum taste with a nice bit of sweetness- like honey on the end.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange and with fine yeast sediments floating around, has a lasting off-white head. Classic belgian yeast spiced aroma. Flavour holds a classic belgian spiced yeast flavour and with mild caramel malt base. Delicate yet faint compared to many other more flavourful belgian tripels.

MoritzF (9355) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2007
(33cl bottle, bought a couple of years ago, still bb: June 08) Hazy, orange-golden coloured hue with loads of particles and a thick and persistent foamy white head. Sweet bready (cara-)malty aroma with rather subtle fruity (pears) notes, coriander-spice and noticeable alcohol. Sweet flavour, bready and slightly grainy caramel-malty taste spiced with notes of coriander; full bodied with a lively but pleasant carbonation; medium-dry, sweet-bitter finish with a present but non-disturbing alcoholic touch. A decent Tripel.

Sou fã incondicional das "cervejas do padrinho". Muito malte e discreto lúpulo. Muito equilibrada, de carbonatação alta. Excelente.

A taster at Bieres et Saveurs Chambly. The color is golden with a white head. The taste is of hops and spicies with a sweet finish.The aroma is also of hops but I could smell a bit of citrus to go along with the sweetness.

I’m not a great fan of Tripels but continue to try various ones, hoping I’ll be impressed. Tried a Westmalle Tripel at Resto in NYC and found it quite nice. This was it’s equal, well balanced with only a hint of sweetness. Love that smiling monk.

Draft @ redlight. Pretty heckuva tripel. Big banana nose, with a sugary breadiness. Big soft sweetness. Hazy golden yellow, with nice lacing.

Garrafa, em Genebra (SUI), em novembro de 2007. Saborosa, bom aroma, equilibrada, tripel de qualidade. Só não gosto dessa carbonatação alta da família St. Bernardus.
