Pretty good, but drank it around the end of a ferm beer drinking session, so I didn’t 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 didn’t impress me that much, but it got better, and I’m really liking it now as I get to the bottom of the glass. Thanks to Andicus for this one.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 24, 2005
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 didn’t 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.

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.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2005
Hazy pale yellow. Thick white (vanishing) head. Thick mouthfeel, full bodied. Sweet, fruity nose. Bitter flavour with segments of bananas. Very small hints of sweet liqorice. Slight citric.

The aroma is a nice mixture of butter, cheese, herbal hops and alcohol. It looks as good as nay I have had. It is a hazy but rich golden color. It has the nicest head a beer could have. It resembles a huge cream froth on a latte. The taste is everything you expect in a beer from Belgium. First you get a sour maltiness followed by sweet fruit, and some butter. Just a hint of spiciness that lingers into the aftertaste along with a return of the malt taste. Only moderately complex but perfectly balanced. Great beer!

Wow! This beer is GREAT! This brew is nice, creamy and is silky smooth across the palate. Has good fruity flavors mixed in with some candy like goodness. I am pretty amazed that this beer doesn’t have a better score! (although 3.79 as of this review is respectable)
