COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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.

330ml brown bottle. Poured hazy orange gold, lots of particles floating about. Head is small and thin, but covers the entire surface in tiny tight white bubbles. Light oranges in the aroma, and honey sweetness. Quite a lot of body, creamy mouthfeel, very fine smooth carbonation. Flavour is again honeyish malts, some subdued lemon notes, spicy yeast and a clingy hoppy finish, good dryness.

Bottle, light yellow colour. A tripel with too little taste for me, some caramel, some fruity note, but overall nothing special.

Light golden pour with a voluminous white head. Light aroma with hints of spicy yeast and apricots. Taste is moderately sweet with a spicy slightly bitter finish. Overall a refreshing beer.

Excalibur123 (108) - Soria, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2014
Vierte color amarillo bronce algo turbio con abundante cabeza de espuma de burbuja muy fina y retención media, en nariz levadura belga, cítricos, galleta y miel; entrada suave con amargor muy tenue que seguidamente deja un final dulce; notas a cereal y miel, cuerpo y carbónico medios, una cerveza fácil de beber con el alcohol bien integrado y mediana complejidad, muy buena triple.

inbirraveritas (1216) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 9, 2014
Bottled, 330 ml. Opal golden coloured brew with a big, but fizzy white head on its top, which leaves a thin film behind. Yeasty, fruity nose. The mild sweet and refined aroma has apricots, honey, breadcrust and herbs underpainted by a medicinal taste and alcohol, texture is syrupy. Long and warming tart-spicy finish. Enjoyable.

330mL bottle at Delices et Caprices, pours a cloudy a hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma brings out lots of Belgian yeast, swee cereal malts, and floral notes. Flavour brings out complex Belgian yeast, sweet cereal malts, and floral notes. The yeast is typical St Bernardus complexity. Highly drinkable and complex. Very good stuff.

This was a very enjoyable Tripel. Its head is foamy white in color, thin (about one finger) and fades quickly to a very thin wispy covering with very little lacing. The body is golden tan in color and has a hazy appearance with lots of tan colored yeast sediment floating in it. The aroma has a sweet fruity and estery nose with hints of dry earthy yeast and some very light hints of spicy/floral hops. It starts with fruity apple and apple wood notes, mixed with light bready malty notes that have a honey on soft white bread sweetness. The flavor starts to dry and I notice hints of dry white grape notes and dry funky yeast. This leads into the finish along with mellow spice and bitterness from the hops. Its texture is lively yet smooth with nice champagne like carbonation inside of a solid medium body.

Golden colour, with medium white head. Smell is yeast and coriander. Taste is malty, some sweet notes like caramel, with some bitterness in the end. Some alcohol detectable in the taste. Good.
