UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 St. Bernardus Tripel is a very attractive ale. The color is a hazy yellow while the head is a perfect off-white. The aroma is full of yeast, malt and the spices that I associate with a wit beer. The flavor is very smooth and easy to drink. This is a clean, yet full bodied ale.

Courtesy of Naka. Pours a mostly clear gold with a nice white head. Wheaty (I know thats not a real word) and spicy aroma with clove and sweet orange hints. Incredibly complex taste - different flavors developing with each sip. Fruity (grapes and lemons) with over the top sweetness. Finishes very wheaty (again, I know, not a word) with spicy and banana overtones. Bubbly and lively mouthfeel. A freaking classic, and one of my favorite Tripels.

750ml Bottle. Poured a light gold with a small fizzy head. Found it spicy, with hints of apricot, and more sour than other triples Ive tried. Good carbonation. A nice beer, but I wouldnt rate it at the level of their Abt 12.

aroma of ripe red apple, balanced by some sweet malt and some dust. taste is malty and fruity; notes of red apple, champagne, & dry flowers. mouthfeel is bubbly and frothy, with a fairly light body. dry finish, a bit phllegmy with a light sweet-yet-bitter malt coating on the palate. very nicely balanced, some complexity yet still simple enough to enjoy without too much thought. really does have a nice sweet/sour balance. a very nice brew, an excellent tripel. some might call it a bit light and the flavor a bit subdued, but i think that adds to the gentle character of the brew.

Shared w/ Juart and Santoslhalper. Pours a hazy golden apple juice color with a small white head which dissipates quickly. A beautiful nose of apples, grape, yeast and alcohol. A pretty caramely flavor with the apples and spritzy carbonation mingling nicely. Some fruity esters and a bit of a dry finish round this out nicely. The carbonation and texture combine to make a nice creamy mouthfeel.

From 33cl bottle, best before 10/10. Golden hazy body with a large foamy head leaving a medium lacing. Banana, bitter orange peel, clove, vanilla and malts in the nose. In mouth it has a light sweet start that explodes in a wonderful mix of spices and fruits. A light bitterness at the end enhances this great mix and adds complexity. Medium body and light carbonation give character to the brew and power the flavors. A great tripel!

750 bottle corked and caged poured into a trappist glass has a golden color and loads of yeasty sediment from the bottom. the head is a thick two finger that left a heavy layer with great retention. aroma has champagne yeast, lemon peel, flowers, banana, spice, and grain. mouth feel is lighter with frothy carbonation. flavors are well blended yeast, grain, malt, spice, and sweetness. has a good yeast and spice snap along with the alcohol. a little touch of apples and a finish going dry with spice and very light bitter. definitely a nice tripel, perhaps the best i have tried.

Big bottle pours rich and golden with billows of white foam. Sweet bready aroma. Striking accomplishment in balance and style. Its a Tripel. Beautiful and delicious.
