Excellent. Pours w. banana peel yellow color, cloudy, fruity/yeasty with an herbal component. Rich and sweet, but well-balanced with very smooth mouthfeel. Tropical fruits, fennel seed, pepper, banana, malt. Some earthiness but mostly just really smooth. Almost has a Unibroue quality about it. Refreshing juicy finish. Could drink alot of these.

Aromas of bread, apple, fruit and spice. Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head with notable particulates. Taste of raisin and fruit with a slightly metallic finish. This is very good, complex and interesting.

Btl pours a hazy golden color with an orange hue. Big fluffy white head lingers, leaving strands of lace on glass with each sip. Aromas of ripe fruit, flowers, spice and cookie dough. Tastes of banana,tangerine, pepper,wheat grains, yeast and a hint of alcohol. Medium body, slightly above average carbonation, soft smooth mouthfeel and a spicy, effervescent finish. This is a really nice abbey ale. I like that it does not feel heavy even though its a big beer. The flavors and aromas meld perfectly to create a smooth delicate easy to drink brew. Very refreshing!

Solid tripel but didnt find anything especially noteworthy. Lightly flowerly nose. Good bright yellow color and fluffy white head. Full body but one dimensional boozy flavors.

A very flowery, sweet brew. Another tasty beer from st. Bernardus. A tripple for the summer.

12 oz bottle from sample pack, pours a light gold with white head not much lacing, quite a bit of sediment flowery aroma with a fruit and spice flavor.

Etant un grand amateur de la St Bernardus ABT 12 qui reste et restera une de mes bires de chevet, jattaquais la dgustation de cette Tripel avec un certain allant, voir un allant certain. A la verse, blonde trouble avec une mousse bulles multiples stabilise sur 3 millimtres. 5/5, lapparence mimporte peu de toute faon, donc cest le mme tarif pour tout le monde. Nez sur les agrumes, citron vert et pamplemousse en tte, du caramel bien net, de la prune, de la mirabelle, des fruits jaunes (ananas notamment), du malt chocolat petite dose, des armes de cuir et de bois rsineux assez perceptibles. Bon nez, pas trs complexe, pas non plus quelconque mais un peu trop banal mon got. En bouche, texture souple, amertume sur la fin uniquement, la carbonatation est moyenne, lalcool reste sobre. Les saveurs sont vraiment sur les crales et le caramel, un peu trop dailleurs. Malheureusement, cette Tripel est en cela trs limit au niveau gustatif, le final est plat, sans relief. Il manque clairement quelque(s) chose(s) cette bire pour en faire un breuvage digne dintrt. Je suis dautant plus surpris par la note gnrale obtenue par cette bire. Laura de sa grande sur lABT 12 peut tre... En attendant, mes attentes taient assez hautes et elles retombent dautant plus... Dommage. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

Slight initial vinegar washes away with lovely smooth sweeter after taste. Nice head. Very drinkable - doesnt taste like an 8%er.
