Pours a large frothy head which turns rocky. Amber/orange colour with lots of yeast. Aroma is lightly hoppy and yeasty with average amounts of alcohol. Light to medium body with a dry alcohol finish. I found the flavour to be too acidic.

Drink it along a rizzoto or pork meat.

Hazy gold/bronze. Short lived, fizzy, white head. Very light aroma of yeast, rich malt, and light fruits. Flavor is rich malt with a touch of hop bitterness, yeast, light fruits, and some alcohol in the finish. Full, balanced body. Easy drinking, very nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nose jumps out of bottle. Pours medium orangish brown with small, short-lived head. Interesting blend of malt and strange, but interesting yeast. Yeast like no other: wild and moldy. Alcohol well hidden. Little short on palate and finish, but good beer overall.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Bottled. A reddy brown coloured beer with a nice off white head. The aroma is massive; meaty and fruity. Thick and nose filling. Some burnt chocolate notes in there amidst the woodiness. The taste is absolutely gorgeous. Thick moussey fruits. Wood and chocolate. Exceptionally long finish. Big malty flavours with fruity hops balance in perfect harmony. I wouldn’t class this as a tripel but I would class it as World Class as a beer. Score 4.7
Subsequent rating scored 3.8. Average becomes 4.3

Bottle. Brown reddish color with thin whit head thats comes to a ring. Yeast and metalic aroma. Taste of malt, fruits and nice palate. Good carbonation but metalic taste.
Bière de couleur brun rouge avec un mince collet blanc qui disparait pour ne former qu’un anneau. Odeur de levure et de métal. Au goût, elle est malté et fruité. Co2 élevé avec un goût métalique mais, elle est moelleuse en bouche.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Now this is a damn good beer.. found at Lee’s Liquor in town and picked it up because it was a Belgian I hadn’t yet tried. Immediate aroma from the bottle of a perfectly brewed Belgain ale. Poured with a creamy permanent head, pale golden color. Maybe not strong enough to be called a tripel, but the flavor definitely hits the mark-not too aggressive but just right. If you have the means, definitely give this a whirl.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a murky orange with a large diminishing white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruit and sugar -- it’s quite sweet but not overly sweet like I find some Tripels are. Flavour’s also sweet and yeasty along with some malt, fruit, spices (pepper and more) and a bitterness in the finish. -- tastes great! Hides the alcohol quite well. Medium bodied. Very good, I’ve yet to be dissapointed by St. Bernardus.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into the st bernardus bowl. Pours golden with a loverly cloud-like head. Aroma isnt as strong as some trips’ ive had, but decent and relaxing. Taste is banance, spices like clove and licorice, some citric sways and good clean yeast. Refreshing, but not as distinctly set as the bernardus stuff. Decent overall indeed.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very nice pour with a nice lingering head. Lots of suspension in a very translucent orange/brown. Complex scent, herb, citrus, alcohol and more. Some warming alcohol in the taste. The taste varried greatly but finished with a shot of quick bitterness. A great Tripple.
