3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this the first time in ´t Brugs Beertje in Brugge, Belgium in my early days as a craft brew drinker. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow. Smells of alcohol and fruity yeast. Sweet and kinda honeyish. Aromas of caramel, earth and yeast. Dry finish wiyh quite a lot of alcohol aromas for the 8%.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A filtered tripel? There is no yeast at all in this. Zero sediment in the bottom and only the last maybe .5 oz added any cloudiness to the beer. Anyways, this beer has a great and uncharacteristic aroma. Very fruity and banana, like a hefeweizen. Very pale, gold in color with a very effervescent head. Flavor is very dull, a little yeast and a little more banana. What’s the deal? It’s not bad but this is pretty lame. Reminds of Duvel. I don’t get it.

Bottle was chunky and hazy will have to try this one again!!
Strong grapefruit aroma and some sulfur must have been skunked and sitting on the top shelf for a while. Quite a bit of sediment on the side of the bottle, probably stored wrong.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2006 Tremendous. Different from most tripels I’ve had... this one was creamier, still sweet, with the oats and wheat making for a softer flavor. The alcohol is hardly detectable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale, amber coloring with an enormous, bright white foam head. The bubbles are channeling up to the surface beautifully from the bottom of my tulip glass. Semi-sweet banana aromas are complimented by some fresh bread and yeast. Initial sensation on the tongue is rather bitter, but it then mellows out on the palate with the softer banana sensations. A nice walnutty smack noticed toward the finish. Not overly complex, but an overall well rounded, tasty brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz bottle poured into a corsendnk goblet. lots of carbonation in this one with a big white head that quickly dissipates and leaves a nice white lacing around the glass. still lots of bubbles. nose of spice, bananas, wheat, caramel; and yeast. more spicey yeast, bananas, and alcohol dominate the flavor. not terribly exciting for the style, but i could still see this being refreshing on a hot summers day. the proper glassware for this one almost overshadows the brew inside it.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
wow. Been a while since i’ve been struck by such a decent brew.Warmed to around 7 celcius. Pours loverly honey gold with brilliant clarity. Lots of carb. Like a bloody whirlpool. Nice big white head that races and stops right on point in this St Bernardus glass. Nose is a slight wheat and citric and spice. Taste is a pleasant yeast, milked honeydew, banana nut bread and vanilla. Hops make their way via the 8% alchohol, but non offensive, and no real burn. Absolutely delightful! Ive got to stock this stuff and Id love to try it on draft.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours medium gold with yellow head. Aroma is earthy, banana bready, alcohol, floral, and a little metallic. Some caramel and vanilla in flavor. Alcohol pretty dominant for 8%, almost hot on the way down. Lots of carbonation at first, but after a few minutes it tames down and is a pretty smooth tripel.
