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.

Yanou (1) - BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2015 does not count
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 (834) - Berlin, GERMANY - 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.

drjay44 (2963) - Salida, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2014
33 cl. bottle. Pours a very thick, gradually diminishing, white head, with some Belgian lacing, over a gold (SRM 5) cloudy, particle laden body.....nose is light lemon, orange, light cereal malts, slight herbal tones.....taste is light sweetness with lemon, orange, light spice, with hints of allspice, clove, becoming dry with light hops spice bitter finish.....mouth feel, light of medium body, light alcohol warmth, carbonation high with moderate creaminess. This bottle has been abused at some point with the result of a very off appearance. The aromas and flavors are basically intact for the style. BJCP 7/1/15/4/7

750 ml bottle. Pours a very flakey golden-straw with a resilient, thick white head. Aroma is honey, malt, vanilla. Flavor is honey, brown sugar, vanilla, pear. Finish is herbal, dry. Medium body, average carbonation. Somewhat disappointing.
