A-Amber-orange body. Held to light the body is yolky with lively brown sediment freckling the brew. This yeast dusts the beer beautifully. Gargantuan soapy white head. Great retention. Sudsy bubbly lace. I feel like I should throw dollar bills at my glass for this beautiful show.
S-Soap. Clean. Orange. Lemon. Apricot and pineapple jellies. Malts. Banana. Pear.
T-Very grainy. Earthy. Grassy. Soapy. Clean. Sweet corn syrup. Aforementioned fruits listed in the smell give encore performances. Apple jam. Clear alcohol. Banana chips. Honey aftertaste.
M-Medium low body with medium tendencies. The needle teeters on the body scale, more towards the low. Medium to heavy full on carbonation. Wow! So lively it burns, even pricks every taste bud. The live yeast I swear bubbles and multiplies, foams, on the tongue. Extremely activated yeast. Said yeast is sour and dries the palate, yet leaves a lubrication to make tongue feel "wet" and refreshed. That weird duality of feel that only beer can pull off. Gets sticky with time.
O-A world class brew. For me St. Bernardus Tripel is an acquired taste, but that doesn't deter from it's greatness. Too clean and medicinal on the smell and taste, like my glass had the residue of dish washing liquid in it or something. But the yeast is a treat. It gives the beer a beautiful look, unique taste and produces super foam to swish around leaving you enjoying every last bubble, every last drop. Belgium is the mecca of beer.

Poured from bottle dated 25.08.16, 11.2 oz into tulip. Deep gold as noted by most reviewers. I did get the spicy, mildly estery nose (some noted no or limited esters). Head white, fairly quick dispersal. Taste was, for me, true-to-form tripel with citrus-spice up front and yeasty in finish with very mild aclohol. Mouthfeel was pretty full-bodied with a more aggressive carbonation than it looked like it would give. Citrus lingers on tongue for awhile. Keeper, will buy more.
