A: The beer pours from the bottle really clear, much like a champagne. It sits in my St. Bernardus Goblet a yellow-orange color with slight particles floating around. A nicely sized fluffy white head caps the whole thing off and laces down the side of the glass very nicely.

S: Pretty spicy overall, the aroma has banana and booze providing the breadth. Sweet and full of Belgian yeast. Lemon, citrus, and zest also make an appearance.

T: I really like the taste of this. The booze is much more prominent than what I got from the smell. The fruits develop very nicely and, with some spices, create a really nice balance.

MF: Heavy body that is creamy on the palate. Carbonated well, the beer is really drinkable.

O: A great representation of the style. Doesn't try to be anything more than a top notch tripel. Balance, spicy, fruity, boozy, Delicious.

Poured this Tripel from a bottle into a goblet. Pours a cloudy orangish color, produces a white creamy head and has some of the thickest lacing I have ever seen. The aroma smelled of orange and apricots. Very nice. Medium in body, this Tripel was very smooth, highest marks for mouthfeel. A base of toasted malt, strong citrus flavor...lemon and orange, hints of ripe apricots and then moves to a sweet caramel almost candy sugar flavor. This Tripel is amazing...best I have ever had, so many flavors shine through...it was fun to analyze. Semi dry finish.. Can't wait to try again.

a: diaphanous toasted grain with three fingers of whipped, white foam. This falls to a thick quilt of the same leaving cobwebs.
S: Clove, banana, coriander, musty yeast, grain, corn, a hint of pear.
T: Sharp and sweet with hints of amaretto. grain, yeast, looong finish is the amaretto. The finish here is what make the flavor so beautiful. Allows for long appreciation of the beer.
M: Medium on heavy with hi carb and a semi dry finish.
O: Really a great tripel. complex, playful, multilayered.
