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.

Excellent tripel. Honey aroma, also some licorice. Next to Karmeliet Tripel this has to be my favourite one. Quite bitter aftertaste.

Second sample in our recent "Weekend at Bernie’s". Poured a golden amber with a decent white head. The head dissapated in different areas, producing some highs and lows, interesting to watch. Warm, malty aromas with bananas and bready yeast. Sweet and spicy, with noticeable alcohol in the finish. Good stuff.

pours with a slightly smaller head than the petrus tripel did. certainly a much better beer than the petrus was too. a little darker yellow color, white head. yeasty smell with some hints of malts in it. taste is fantastic, easy drinking, smooth, sweet, and rich. a very good example of this style. most definately the best tripel i have ever drank.

Pours an amber color with minimal head. I finally got to pour one of these things into my St Bernardus glass. Aroma is malty. Finishes fairly bitter. Overall there wasn’t anything overly special about this brew. The alcohol was well hidden, and this made it lose some flavor I think... there wasn’t much else there. It was still enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
In the 330 ml bottle. Pours an unusual carbonation pattern: a ring of large bubbled nucleation sites at the bottom of the glass, followed by tiny lines of microbubbles rising to the top. Rich golden color with a pillowy white head. Aroma of honey and green apples. Yeasty and mediciney sweet flavor. Back of the tongue residual bitterness finishes the job. Slightly harsher palate than some of its bretheren.
