aroma is of apples and pine. pours a cloudy straw color with a large white head that dissipates. flavor is sweet and smooth, with a slightly spicy aftertaste. has some lacing. not overly familiar with the style, but I enjoyed this beer.

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.

Pours slightly hazy golden with finger of white foam. Aromas of bread, apples, banana, and sugar. Flavors follow the nose, with a nice bready sweetness of malt and candi dominating amongst ripened fruit. Sometimes this style goes a little sour for me... not this one. Clean finish with a slightly sweet yeasty finish. Very smooth despite high carbonation. Good stuff

St. Bernardus brews craft beers that are very easy for everyone to like and this is no exception. One of the most overlooked tripels.

Spices, fruits (citrus and banana), amber and frothy, medium sweetness, medium body, average carbonation, the alcohol is magnificently hidden...a good drink.

Frothy head. Aroma and taste of sugar cookies, spice, and a bit of vanilla. Delightful.

Droge triple. Licht zoet, ietwat hoppige afdronk. Ik vind hem niet zo goed zoals iedereen hem vindt, maar het is geen slechte triple. Beetje standaard eerlijk gezegd.

Are we drinking the same beer? This was so dull, tasteless, weak. A bit of yeast, a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste and that’s it. It could be me, will have to give it a 2nd chance.

Kremasta piva, malo gorcine, kako silazi niz grlo osjeti se citrus. Ostaje odlican okus u ustima

Cloudy blonde with a couple of fingers of cloudy white head. Nice yeasty nose with hay malts and mild citrus. Similar taste of yeast, hay malts, honey, citrus, mild booze aftertaste. Well done tripel.
