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 33 cl) First impression is bubbly. Bubbles everywhere actually - this is extremely carbonated. Deep orange colour, almost bronze with a huge frothy head. Lots of malt with a pleasant. dry fruityness in the palate. 301093

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 Lots of fruit coming out in this one. Nice sweet Belgian Tripel. So far the best Abbey TripelsIíve had. Very drinkable well rounded beer. Will have to pick up a few more of this one.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2005
UPDATED: APR 4, 2013 Bottled. A hazy orange coloured beer with a nice big long-lasting white head. The aroma is spicy coriander with lemons and yeastiness. The taste is full and spicy, a bit floral and perfumed too. There is more citric fruits and a biscuity character. Another top St Bernardus beer. Score 3.9
Subsequent rating scored 3.6. Average becomes 3.8

Pretty good, but drank it around the end of a ferm beer drinking session, so I didnít write anything down on this one, so I must retry in a better state of mind

Golden color with a thick white head that went away quickly. Gorgeous beer. Spice, alcohol, and some fruit in the aroma. Flavor is loaded with apple and apricot with a spice and a malt finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Great beer.

Hazy golden colour with a big foamy white head. Complex aroma with lots of fruit (citrus & apricot) & spice (clove & anise), and some rye bread as well. Carbonation is lower than some other reviews here suggest - maybe it varies from batch to batch. Nice rouch flavour, with apricot, almond, malt, and bitter licorice in the finish. The finish is short at first, but once it warms up, it starts to linger. The first half of the glass didnít impress me that much, but it got better, and Iím really liking it now as I get to the bottom of the glass. Thanks to Andicus for this one.

From the bottle this pours a nice golden color, very clear with a fizzy white head. Very crisp and sharp tripel with a nice bitter finish. This didnít have the malt up front i was expecting, but a very dry tripel throughout with a very nice crisp snap to it. The spicing in the finish really made the fruit in the malts stand out.

My first Trippel (thanks Jeff) - Creamy mountains of foam and loads of carbonation as well in the pour. The prickly mouthfeel quickly expands and decompresses to become smooth and creamy. Body is like banana cream pie in a glass. The drinkability of this is just ridiculous.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 20, 2005
Bottled (BBE 2004)
Hazy honey-orange color, good off-white color. Lots of floating yeast particles. Aroma starts metallic, then fruity- apricot, yeast, smoke, chestnut and anise - when it warms licorice.. Sweetish fruity: pear, typical St. Bernardus yeasty licorice flavor. Bitterish long aftertaste. Complex and rich abbey triplel.
