This is about as good as it gets. Pours a gorgeous golden yellow with a head that last. Aroma of yeast but also dried fruit. So much complexity on the tongue that continues to the finish. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Triple da manuale piuttosto dolce, diventa più secca nel finale. Lievito presente sia al naso che al palato.

Fles gekregen voor mijn verjaardag, als onderdeel van een St. Bernardus pakketje. Uitgeschonken in originele bokaal. Enigszins troebel goudgeel bier, met een medium hoge luchtige schuimkraag, die inzakt maar wel constant op het bier aanwezig blijft. Wellicht iets te koud ingeschonken door mij. Kruidig, fruitig en licht zurig aroma van: kruidnagel, sinaasappel, banaan, fruitige esters van tropisch fruit, vineus licht zurig aroma van witte wijn. Het smaakpallet volgt de geur, een mooie bittere en vrij droge tripel, uitstekend gebalanceerd met verfijnde Belgische gist. Tonen van banaan, sinaasappel, kruidnagel, snoepgoed en zurige witte wijn notities. De carbonatie is stevig, met een kortstondige kruidige finish. Ook deze tripel is weer van een hoog niveau, eigenlijk zoals alle bieren van St. Bernardus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ciemnozłote, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie, która z czasem redukuje się do małego pierścionka przy brzegu szkła. Aromat jasnych belgijskich owoców, winogrona , brzoskwinie, gruszki. W smaku znowu jasne owoce i lekki kwasek, bardzo pijalne. Goryczka średnia w stronę wysokiej, lekko ziołowa. Ogólnie bardzo udany tripel, wszystko jak najbardziej na miejscu, po prostu pyszny, choć piłem lepsze to i tak ten mocno daje rade.

CanCrusher (854) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle 0,33L. Slightly hazy, golden color with average big, creamy, white head. Aroma of plum brandy, alcohol, a touch of spice, herbs and grass. Taste starts light sweet with a note of ripe fruits. Finish goes somewhere between light bitter and light acidic. Suprisingly easy to drink for the beer with 8% ABV.

MiamiBarman (53) - Miami, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Golden color with extremely fast rising carbonation and tiny bubbles forming into a well formed white foamy head. Aroma is exquisitely spicy with loads of coriander, also detecting some vanilla aromas. The mouthfeel is very light for the amount of alcohol in this masterpiece. I feel like this is right there with Chimay Blanche, maybe a touch less refined, but it is world class all the same.

Bawelt (417) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 8, 2016
Triple belge de base. Nez plein de levures, fond assez floral. Bouche assez ronde, assez sucrée (un peu trop). Encore une fois pas mal de levures qui peuvent être éc?urantes avec le sucre. Fond de pêche, assez agréable.

Pours a cloudy yellow that quickly clears up, white head. Aroma of wheat and spices. Medium bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation. Taste is slightly dry and moderately bitter with a sweet finish. Felt suprisingly light for an 8% beer.
