Served in a St Bernardus goblet.

A- pours a cloudy golden color with a 2" white head. Some blotching remains in the glass.

S- lemon, yeast, dough, spices

T- citrus flavors followed by bready yeast and slight metallic taste.

M- medium body and high carbonation makes it a bit hard to drink.

O- good tripel, lower carbonation would ,ake this easier to drink and more enjoyable.

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a chalice, served at cellar temp, so ~59f.

A hazy yellow somewhere between lemon, apricot and honey. Vigorously carbonated. 2 plus finger souffle of a linen white head that leaves broad, generous swaths of lacing.

Aroma of malt, sugar, yeast and Noble Hops. It's getting easier to detect Belgian yeast strains.

Mouthfeel; soft and supple

Taste: orchard fruits, alcohol esters a faint bitterness that has an Aspirin taste. There is a certain sourness, as from White wine which creeps in on the aftertaste.

Notes: My first St. Bernardus, coming from a gift pack. Heretofore I have not really enjoyed any of the pale Belgian Ales, whether they be BPAs, Saisons, etc. This one actually is pretty good. The flavors are well harmonized and the 'Band Aid' flavor does not overwhelm. Time will tell if I go back to this one.
