Ingredients: Water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.
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.

12oz Bottle: Not a bad experience at all. I’m not usually a tripel fan, but this was quite pleasant. Plenty of sweet fruity undertones follow a slightly dry nit-too-boozy finish. The nose was a bit under-pronounced, but it was poured into a pint glass, so not necessarily the brew’s fault. Included in a 6pk selection featuring mostly St. Bernardus, I thought this really stood out on it’s own for what I had expected to be an unimportant "extra" in the selection.

Bottle in variety pack from LCBO. Spicy aroma. Taste is nice: sweet and spicy with a dry finish. Very tasty.

En bouche c’est équilibré, amertume légère. Rien d’exceptionnel, mais elle se déguste comme une bonne bière belge. Elle fait le boulot.

330 mL bottle. Hazy yellow. Small white head. Grainy tripel. Medium body. Nothing exciting.

Shines canola yellow in the glass with a tight bubbled foam cap that snaps & crackles. This is pulled from the LCBO six pack sampler for us thirsty Canadians & I can tell you how much I’m enjoying this purchase (especially after my last 6 pack sampler of bitters from England that underwhelmed me in so many ways). This brew is champagne like in its crispness, starts off candy shop style but as the pour settles it takes on a more tart aspect. Carbonation is more lively than a crackhead looking for rocks. This is great & I’d love to see what my main man Helsdon -- he who drinks beer with me & marries Belgian women -- says about this.

Slightly hazy golden pour, huge white head. Huge tropical fruit aroma, loads of yeasty esters, with some subtle herbs, and mint. Very lively effervescent mouth feel. Medium bitter finish ,lots of fruit and yeast, with more herbs and a pronounced banana note. Superb tripel.

Part of the St. Bernardus Mixed 6-Pack. The beer pours a hazed honey gold colour with a thick long lasting snow white head. The aroma is yeast, light fruits, grainy malts, yeast, and spices. The mouthfeel is full bodied with above average carbonation. The flavour is light fruits, yeast, honey, and grains. Another winner from St. Bernardus.

330 mL bottle. Pours hazy honey with a huge cap of ever expanding white head. Very nice lacing. Honey-like malt, pear, banana, candy sugar, orange, mild herbal hop notes, vanilla. Lightly sweet, with a nicely rounded finish, a little bitter. Moderate plus body with heavy carbonation, very creamy texture. A tasty tripel!

Hanoi (440) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Nose is light but complex, dust, cloves, spice, vanilla, cream, oak, dough, Belgian yeast. Taste dough leading to caramel, dark fruits, spice, cloves, anise, then grain, herbs then vanilla and cream in the rich spiced finish. Mouthfeel is light for the style. I was a little disappointed in the first quarter of the glass, but this is a subtle beer whose charms emerge slowly.
