Purchased as part of a St Bernardus mix selection (boxed sampler)
Appearance: pured cloudy amber with copious effervescence, foamy egg shell head which took some time to resolve, leaving a sticky lacing,

Smell: yeast, sweet fruity scent of apple, pear and a hint of clove/pepper

Taste: sweet malt forward, bready with a hint of candied fruits, citrus and a little pungent at the end note with a bit of astringency from the alcohol/carbonation. .

Mouthfeel: Sufficient carbonation and astringency to offset malt and associated sweetness, not excessive.

Overall: Rather good for the style, IMHO it’s a sweeter version of Fin du monde with a slightly less complex bouquet, but still quite enjoyable.

330 ml bottle served fairly cold into a wine glass. Purchased as part of the St. Bernardus taster's six pack. Works out to about $3.20 / bottle.

Appearance - Hazy, pale golden color. Impressive retention on a one finger head, lots of lively bubbles throughout. Good looking tripel overall.

Smell - Sweet and inviting, some peaches and / or nectarines and a hint of pear. Some light spices and coriander. Sweet candied sugar in a yeasty way that's reminiscent of La Fin Du Monde. The nose only gets bigger as the beer warms.

Taste - Sweet and inviting again, some fruits, caramel and a suggestion of baked goods. Lots of yeast and many delicate fruit flavors such as pear, grape, nectarine seamlessly roll into one. Slightly boozy on the back end, but contained pretty well.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, with prickly carbonation and a dry finish although not abnormally so for a tripel.

Overall - Very delicate tripel with a lot of fruit subtleties. Inviting and delicious and a great start to the taster's pack overall.
