Bottle... Hazy, deep golden ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Fantastic, creamy retention. Breadsy, fruity nose with minimal to no spicy phenols. Sweet, subtle flavor of sugar cookie, biscuit and wildflower honey with suitable bitterness. Medium to full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Delicately sweet, fruity, breadsy finish. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2007
I’m not sure if this bottle was a bit old, but it was to dark malty for my taste in tripels. I still enjoyed the beer, it just had a lot of dark fruit and rich caramel flavors that are uncommon in tripels. Spicy finish, just without much crispness, the lack of a dry finish made this feel rather heavy on the palate. Still overall a nice beer, but disapointed in its "tripelness".

A Mes rate:
Bottle at Lowlander. Pale amber with a well behaved white head. Very yeasty aroma with slight hops and some baby sick. Honestly. Quite sweet and malty in the flavour for a tripel. Some sickly toffee notes too. Dryish finish. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2007
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a small large white head. Aroma and taste of malts, fruits and spices. Good trippel. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Pours hazy dark yellow with lots of small floating yeast and a thin head. It has a startlingly sour citrus and banana aroma. The flavor is not as sour as the aroma suggests. The malt and yeast flavors combine pretty well with the fruit notes. I couldn’t stop thinking bananas for some reason. It’s good, but in my opinion not as good as the St. Bernardus Tripel. It just seems to be lacking something that their other Tripel nails.

Poured a cloudy yellow-orange color with a small white head. Sweet malt aroma with some spicey notes, some toffee and candied citrus. Slightly dry, sweet taste throughout. Good brew thewolf (12595) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with an enormous creamy white head. Aroma has a milky feel to it. Lots o yeast, caramel, spices and a little caramel. Flavour is not sour as other tripels, quite sweet with a clear malty presence, some barn, some coriander, a little vanilla and a non-existent alchol-feel. Finish is slightly warming. Great. cmr1517 (35) - New Haven, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2007
I hardly rate any beer any more but this one was pretty damn good. I love the smell and the taste. Thats all WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2007
OK, I admit that I’m surprised that no one rated this before. It’s great, probably my favorite from St. Bernardus. Nose of orange blossom and apricot brandy, alcohol, sweet malts, bread and yeast, and even a touch of Cascade (ok, that’s probably just the orange blossom fooling me). Cloudy dark orange, huge head, explodes out of the bottle Orange, bread and yeast, mustiness in the flavor. Mouth is a big full Belgian. Really quite good. Noy cheap, but great value compared to the Hugh Maolne I had last night. pforei (338) - USA - JUL 15, 2007
Tulip glass. Pale yellow/gold color with minimal head for a triple. Honey champnage aroma. Mild taste of malt, fruit, and yeast with a sparring amount of hops. Needs more spice.
