UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Pours a yellow to orange bit hazy color with a huge foamy aired white to yellow head. Good retention. Many lacings left S: Sweet, grainy and bready. A lot of Belgian yeasts in the nose. Fruity esters (cherry and pears, mainly). Hints of spice and orange zest. A bit citrus T: Follows the nose. Grainy, bready and fruity. Hints of spice, orange zest and nuts. Sweet upfront but, in overall, a dry taste. Belgian yeasts and a citrus bitter end M: Creamy and molasses body. Medium carbonation. Peppery sensation in the end. Citrus bitterness is a must O: High drinkability. Great beer. Excellent St. Bernardus specimen [ BA Review @ 10/31/2010 ]

Hazy golden color with rich and fluffy white head. Aroma is quite floral, spicy, with coriander and clove, fruity and citric, with green apple peel. Taste is is the same line as the aroma, very fruity, floral and spicy.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Dark pilsner brown (that is, quite light). Smells seductively vinous, hints of aged cheese. The vinosity returns to a high degree in the intricate taste landscape, together with some caramelly notes and a typical belgian tripel feeling.
