look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

2001 bottle (from what I can guess from the notches on the smiling monk label) - Gorgeously thick and clouded dull orangey-yellow color that you cannot see through what so ever; very syrupy thick body with a very tall off-white, meringue-like, speckled froth that sits on top for a good while before finally settling to a healthy murk of a skim on top that keeps its hold mounting on top for a good time. Great lacing in thickly sticking foamy strings.

Lovely aroma of well rounded deep fruityness bringing in super dulled citrus(citrus without the sour citrus) of orange and lemon, some passion fruit, banana, dried apricots, and pineapple notes intermingle. Way yummy and candy-licious! Very soft musty, yeasty spices barely make an appearance, which I like, most Belgian Triples seem to have way too much of that plastic/phenol yeast thing that doesn't bold well with me. This is soft and subtle, fruity and candy-like, more to my liking. Not overly strong but oh so yummy to wiff in. Great subtle fruits and softness to its nose! Tropical fruit salad any one?

Oh my...and the taste follows suit from the smell. Huh? Wow! This is yummy! The tropical fruityness is fabulous to my tastes; soft, full, bold, yet biting, all that was noted in the smell comes across in the tastes. Great fruits of dulled down orange and lemon with some pineapple and banana. Super fine creamyness and fullness. Mild as all hell yeast and spice just barely make an entrance peeking even more interest within the flavors. Maintains a strangely interesting finish of chocolate and caramel malty thickness which covers over the fruits later on, quite amazing! Far and away one of the best Triples I've enjoyed! Thick, lush, flavorful in fruits and candy action! Yum, yum, yum, this stuff rocks! I haven't had many Triples cuz most I've had I didn't like, but this St. Bernardus is mind boggling yummy!
