Great, great Tripel. I actually think I prefer this over the St. Bernardus quad, it’s so drinkable and smooth. I get a hint of sugar and fruit as the predominate aroma. Pours an astonishing gold color which is fairly opaque, with a large standing head. Love the malt/yeast dominance in the taste with hints of citrus and a pleasant spice, which make it tremendously smooth and balanced.

Bottle at Benny. Hazy, golden with a large white head, beautiful lacings. Aroma moderate/heavy malty (caramel, light fruits), moderate hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body.

Slightly orange and just a little hazy with a huge rocky head. Nice aroma of caramel, esters and some light spice, typical of a tripel but neither very powerful nor complex. The flavour is sweet, caramel malt and lot of lemon on its soft but lingering finish. A nice gentle beer.

Bottle thanks to 1_2many. While I’m not a huge fan of the Tripel style beers, this one is pretty good, better than many I’ve tried. It has the standard yeasty aroma and flavor. Nice carbonation as with all Bernardus beers.

Not too bad for a Bernardus but didn’t meet my expectations. Hazy golden with a sweet yeast flavor and aroma. Smooth but not mind blowing. Would have rather spent my money on the 12 but you gotta try everything right?

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2008 Golden orange color with a nice white head. Citrus taste, definitely orange. Really smooth. Great beer!

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2008
Bottle 75 cl. Huge fluffy white head on a golden and moisty body. The nose has hints of vanilla, orange-peel and citrus. A thick and heavy palate with a dry aftertaste. Taste: yeast and citrus-fruits with a clear sense of alcohol. Not the best tripple in the hood...but not the worse either.

3.3
blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Lightly sweet aroma with dough, yeast and banana. Medium, crisp body. Flavor is rather light, with a general fruit sweetness and yeast. Not very impressive.

clingman71 (297) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Very pale straw color, hazy, with a HUGE white head. Complex aroma of sweet malt, a little dough, some spice and slight funk, and some fruit-banana and lemon. The mouthfeel is so thick and heavy, mouth-coating. I always love the messing with the mind of a beer so pale in color but heavy in alcohol% and gravity. The flavor is pure citrus. It isn’t as spicy as some Tripels that I have had, but very solid indeed. There is a little spice in the finish, moreso than initially. My only gripe is that I would like to have a little drier finish.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2008
75cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a clear dark yellow with a thick, white head that lingers. Aroma is citrus, malt, yeast, and faint notes of alcohol. This beer seems to be strongly carbonated. Flavor is also somewhat citrusy, with predominate notes of orange and faint hints of lemon. Medium-bodied ale with a smooth, somewhat lingering finish.
