This is decent, but a rather disappointing tripel that I find rather characterless, bland, and dry. It is bright gold, very clear before the sediment makes it hazy. A huge white head shrinks steadily but quickly to a lasting, thin wispy top. It produces a little uneven, foamy lace. The aroma is a lot of grain with light raisin, mineral, bread crust, mineral, a hint of pear and hay, somewhat resembling a pale bock. The taste is up front pear and hay with mineral, slightly raisiny but mostly dry. It soon becomes drier in alcohol with a hint of lemon pulp, but all thin and dry. The finish and aftertaste are dry and thin, tasting of fruit candy without the sweetness. It is one-dimensional and rather bland.

Friendly triple. Golden blond. Taste of orange, citrus, soft bitters, which combine well with the sweets. Very plesant to drink.

Bottle. 26.08.16. 19 srm. Suspended yeast, mildly off white head, great retention. Dark orange with a ruby red hue. Dominant esters of sugary sweet fruit (strawberries, raspberries, kiwi). Lots of yeast, some hint of herbal, rain forest. Honey flowers. Think velcro syrup (heavy malt, a level up than umami). More on the sweet side, could mistake for saison. As it warms up, more of pear, green apples, and black pepper spice. Velcro on the back end on, too much maltiness for me, like mine with higher attenuation.

mmahut (1570) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours in hazy pale yellow body with high white frosty head. Aroma is yeasty yet with a certain fruitiness, mostly a gentle citrus, light floral background with herbs like ending. Taste has high malty sweetness with light citrus bitterness, yeasty after taste. Body is full, high carbonation, soft.

Foam is rough and very durable. The delicate scent of a little clove and citrus and orange. It’s a strong case of 8%, but the mouth feeling is surprisingly easy. The flavor of orange zest and slightly bitter citrus fills all the taste buds with good impressions. But in addition to acid and bitterness it forms a little sugar reminiscent of candy, not the over sweet and sickening way, but more in a way that maintains the malty sweetness as this triple also. Soft and subtle hops tones spreading towards the end and with its moderate carbonation spreads there is a sense of well-being throughout the oral cavity. The finish is medium dry.

La brasserie Saint Bernardus nous propose avec cette bière une référence parmi les fameuses triples belges. Dans le cas de ces bières, le terme triple est utilisé pour décrire une méthode de brassage ou l’on utilise trois fois plus de malt qu’à l’accoutumé pour obtenir le même volume final. Sur le plan gustatif, le résultat peut être exceptionnel. La couleur, blonde dorée, est relativement classique pour ce type de bière. Toutefois, le nez révèle une certaine finesse. Épices et très légères touches de fruits se mêlent avec l’alcool, lui aussi légèrement perceptible. La bouche présente une attaque malté, mais très vite équilibrée par l’impression d’ester fruité. La finesse des bulles, l’équilibre parfait rendent cette bière facile à boire et à la portée de tout le monde. Idéal à la fois pour les connaisseurs et pour s’initier au monde des bières belges triples.

A fresh sour smell, after which the fruity taste comes forth. A real pleaser with its balance between the golden fruity ale and the creamy yeasty taste. Nothing is extraordinary except the balance it strikes. Very well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

ninecats (338) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2015
75 cl. Semi hazy hayish yellow, solid white fluffy head, dissipates slowly leaving plenty of lacings. Warm aroma of bread, citrus, malt, fruity esters, yeast. Taste is citrusy and malty, bubble gum, fairly big body with yeast notes, slight alcohol in the finish, more warmth in character than boozy. Very nice balance. Creamy texture, big body, medium carbo. This brewery doesn’t disappoint.

Teku. Bottle. Light amber, clear with medium, white head. Poor lacing, average head retention. Nice fruit, ester aroma with great yeasty and spicey notes. Mild caramel aromas. Taste is rather semi is rather semi-sweet from malts. Medium body, above average carbonation, creamy/oily texture, finish is dry. In general very balanced (esters vs malts) triple, highly drinkable, with slightly alcohol warming in the end.
