The aroma of this beer is agreeably gentle and is carried by a discreet bitterness while the balance between the malt and hops relies on fruity accents and a lightly fresh aftertaste.

Une bière qui me paraît bâclée et imprécise. Il y a quelque chose qui sature le palais. Je la trouve lourde pour un faible degré. Plutôt indigeste. Manque de co2...

Ysok02 (466) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2015
Robe dorée, belle mousse. Nez de houblon sur un fond de levure et d’épices. Bouche à l’attaque élégante, amertume discrète, beaucoup de rondeur et finale houblonnée. Un triple sur l’élégance plutôt que la puissance

330 mL bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour, some yeast around. Tall frothy white head, fair bit of lace on the glass as the head slowly drops. Sweet aroma, fair bit of fruit, apple, orange, and yeast. Taste has a similar fruity taste, bread malt taste. Body has a fair bit of fizzy carbonation.

deepeary (321) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Hazy yellow with lots of bubbly white head. Nose is fruit, spices, Belgian yeast. Frothy, soft mouthfeel. Taste has deep fruity esters, peach, apricot. Flavours are nice, but mild. Trifecta is present, tart, sweet, bitter. You really have to look for the bitterness.

Motobashi (106) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
Poured hazy, dirty yellow. Very active carbonation with a 1 1/2 finger and building, off white bubbly head. Grassy, dough aroma. Slight sweet with a touch of bitterness. Slightly oily texture. Fairly good.

damzz (382) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Pours a brownish yellow with a thin white head leaving scant lacing with black grains or particulates (Ok, what are they? A deep Belgian secret? The original Grains of Paradise?). Nose is banana. The taste is bananas. This is the better of the St. Bernadrus tripels I have tasted. 11.2 oz bottle with a best by date of 8/14/15 in a variety pack

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Fleske 33cl Glas: St. Bernardus Zoals een +-1jaar oude St. Bernardus Tripel. MAAR ipv gedroogde perziken, de smaak van een boerenwit grof brood, lange smaak gaat over in vanille/boterbloemekes. Een gepaste carbonisatie,bij St. Bernardus iets te hoog. Schuimkraag perfect qua textuur, zakt licht weg. Lekker!

Scent of raisin, caramel, and yeast. Clear gold colour. Bitter front with flavour of honey, dates, and cinnamon with a sweet finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. Quite tasty.

Moravius (889) - Beijing, CHINA - JAN 1, 2015
Flasche (75 cl, MHD unleserlich, vielleicht 11/2015). - Goldgelb, klar; enorm viel grobporiger, rasch zerfallender Schaum. - In der Nase tripeltypisch bittersüß mit krautig-dumpfer Herbe. - Antrunk kandiszuckersüß mit etwas blasser Frucht (Pfirsich?) und ausreichender aber unspezifischer, wenig aromatischer Bittere. Schaumig rezent, brauseartig. Auch im Abgang bleibt die Bittere dezent und etwas nichtssagend, der Alkohol tritt zu deutlich hervor. - Ein Tripel, das jede eigenwillige Note sorgfältig vermeidet. Eindimensional und uninteressant.

badhack (434) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Golden, yeasty, malty, toasty and lighter fruit flavor. A touch of bitter hops. Medium palate, somewhat crisp.
