I’m not a great fan of Tripels but continue to try various ones, hoping I’ll be impressed. Tried a Westmalle Tripel at Resto in NYC and found it quite nice. This was it’s equal, well balanced with only a hint of sweetness. Love that smiling monk. PhillyBeer2112 (2861) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Draft @ redlight. Pretty heckuva tripel. Big banana nose, with a sugary breadiness. Big soft sweetness. Hazy golden yellow, with nice lacing. jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - DEC 5, 2007
Garrafa, em Genebra (SUI), em novembro de 2007. Saborosa, bom aroma, equilibrada, tripel de qualidade. Só não gosto dessa carbonatação alta da família St. Bernardus. dankman (257) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2007

In short: Excellent classic hoppy Tripelelgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2007
How: Tasting session at brother’s place. 750ml Bottle, fresh. Side-by-side St-Bernardus Tripel and St-Bernardus Watou Tripel
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body with a medium white head.
In long: Yet another great beer from St-Bernardus. Fruity yeast and well malted. Bready with bananas in crisp honey. Side-by-side with her sister the St-Bernardus Watou Tripel the similarities were as apparent as the differences. The Watou Tripel was going a bit more in the crisp sweet malt, crusty grandma lemon-pie. This one is going more in direction of a Westmalle Tripel with a generous noble hopping. A bit less complex but with a nice grassier taste and nice drier finish. I couldn’t decide which one I preferred. This is a classic brewery interpreting a classic style in a classic fashion. That’s like the Rolling Stones doing an acoustic cover of Stairway to Heaven.
750ml bottle. Pours a golden amber with a fizzy white 1-2 finger head that dissipates to a 1/8" head that retains to the bottom of the glass. Nice lacing. Aroma is yeast, fruit (banana), some spice/pepper. Flavor is sweet, more banana, spice, yeast. Mouthfeel is quite pleasant, just the right amount of carbonation. Finishes dry. Alcohol is incredibly well hidden. I’m more of a fan of Quads/Dubbels (LOVE their Abt 12), but I still enjoyed this Tripel from St. Bernardus. shakespeare33 (203) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 10, 2007
has a buttery complexion with an abundance of flavors that collide in my palate ... pepper and butter and hints of lemon earthy hops which give it a sweetness that is almost too overwhelming.. I guess Im just not an abbey tripel kinda guy... ah.
