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.

Not a well balanced tripel. High alcohol content downs any of the other flavour. Little aroma, mild caramel notes. Medium carbonation.

sherm1016 (1247) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2015
33cl bottle, been in the cellar a while. Pours a hazy, dark amber color with a huge white head and a ton of lacing. Aroma is fruity, raisin, maybe some ginger, light clove. Medium on the palate with big, soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, nutty, spicy, clove, ginger, some grassy bitter hops, with a light, sweet finish. Very nice.

Senka (903) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2015
33cl Pours clear when allowed to settle for couple of days. When poured clear or with yeast - completely different aroma and taste. When settled: more like a very good BSA. When with a dash of yeast - a combination of sour and tripel. Malty, gently hoppy. Easy drinking but with a nice rough touch. Medium carbonated. A good beer even when served at room temperature.

Pours a hazy orange with a good white head. Aroma is floral, clove, banana, creamy, yeast. Taste is clove and banana with lemon citrus worked in nicely. Extremely balanced and drinkable tripel, right on point for the style.

Jonb5 (430) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Palest shade of amber, hazy, initial large head morphed into a lid of film. S: Fruity, yeast, phenol, slight citrus. T: Phenol, sharp ripe fruits, tangerine, wheaty. Fairly sweet for a Tripel. M: Smooth, reasonably crisp without a great deal of carbonation, minimal coarse edge from the booze. O: A nice Tripel, lower in alcohol and bitterness than others, there is no such thing as a session Tripel, but two or three wouldn’t get you in trouble.

jamaty (1241) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Color dorado ocre, algo turbia. Mucha espuma al principio que va perdiendo hasta dejar una fina película que permanece hasta el final. Aroma complejo a caramelo, algo de plátano, pera y especias. Excelente en boca con gran cuerpo y mezcla de matices en un tono donde predomina el dulce y las especias, con algo de plátano. Las Bernardus no fallan.gran triple.

Bought this 330ml bottle from Bangkok, Thailand and took it back to Hong Kong in my suitcase. It has a best before date of 7th August 2016 and was poured into a Chimay goblet. The beer poured a hazy murky dark gold colour with one finger creamy white head that has great retention but leaves a nice set of stringy lacing. Mainly floral and citrus lemon and lime aromas along with some bready buscuit malt. Taste is sweet fruity pear and some caramelised banana, maybe even banana bread. The bready malts come through and the finish is slightly bitter and peppery. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation and somewhat dry. Overall, this is a pretty good tripel but not my favourite. I still prefer the La Trappe and Westmalle versions more as this was less fruity overall.

the aroma is malty with some shades of caramel, honey and dry fruits... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of wine, toffee, yeast and some spicy herbs... sweet, bitter and dry aftertaste...
