UPDATED: MAY 10, 2012 From bottle into short stemmed glass at Capital Ale House Richmond VA. Interesting beer, thick white head no lacing, sweet starchy aroma. Bitter sweet taste, more sweet than bitter. Palate was highly carbonated and a bit harsh going down. Not great but good. Expected much more.

Pale amber pour. Sizable off white head. Lacing galore. Sweet malt aroma with hints of burnt sugar. Taste is a sweet sugary mess.

Sweet and sour? Am I in a Chinese restaurant? Deliciously frothy, fruity (mostly raisins), bready and a hint of dry and sour on the finish. High alcohol content nicely hidden (am I sweating?). Poured from a bottle.

Kleurplaatje (100) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2015
Pours hazy orange with a beautiful lasting, thick white head. Great lacing. Malty aroma with some clear yeasty hints. Some ripe fruits as well and also a slight spicy touch. Nice and complex. World class. Taste is smooth and perfectly balanced between sweet, roasty and bitter. Beautiful honeyish hints, nice yeasty kick, clear caramels/sugars, lingering ripe fruits and a spicy kick. Midly dryish in the aftertaste, but the fruity sweetness never fades away. Full bodied, great creamy texture and a fitting, not too lively carbonation. Wonderful balance accompanied with great complexity. Marvellous piece of beer-art and definitely a fantastic tripel.

Bottle. Pours a huge glass of foam. No, seriously, I had to wait a good five minutes to get beer out of this. When it finally calms down, we have a lovely hazy gold with the most creamy, fine-grained, even white head I’ve ever seen -- this is whipped cream here, I can get soft peaks out of it with a finger. There’s so much head it mutes the nose, but what there is is lemon, toast, yeast, and phenols. Rich and sweet on the tongue; there’s some sourness and breadiness to balance it, and it’s a nicely restrained, delicate, elegant tripel, almost perfect in how well it hangs together. Finish is long, warm, and slightly sweet. A magnificent example of the style.

Panzuriel (1462) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2015
St. Bernardus Tripel is a lightly hazy medium golden pour with a big head of off white bubbles. Nose is yeasty with some banana notes. Taste is slightly tart with some bread like qualities and a hint of wine. The body is really lush. a very nice Belgian.
