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.

Draft @ redlight. Pretty heckuva tripel. Big banana nose, with a sugary breadiness. Big soft sweetness. Hazy golden yellow, with nice lacing.

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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2007
In short: Excellent classic hoppy Tripel
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.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2007
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.

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.
