330 ml bottle served cool into an Innis & Gunn glass. I've had this sitting in the fridge for about 4 months, so it was definitely time to try this highly anticipated beer. Cost was about $3.25 CDN for a bottle.

Appearance - Very hazy golden honey hued beer. Two fingers of long lasting white head rest on top of this beauty that are inviting dangerous and a little rocky on top. Great retention and nice swath of lacing is left behind. There's tons of visible carbonation as well.

Smell - Spicy with a floral aroma too. Some peach and apricot up front. Then almost like a hidden layer of maple syrup underneath. powdery yeast and a bready aroma finish things off.

Taste - Sweet boozy fruit, pears and apricots, candied sugar and powdery biscuit. Some white pepper on the finish. Delicious melody of flavors, it just doesn't get better than this.

Mouthfeel - Delightfully light yet satisfactorily filling. There's really high carbonation on this even compared with others of the style. Juicy finish in the mouth, yet simultaneously finishes bone dry in the aftertaste.

Overall - (Bows down to the smiling monk and utters good fortunate for St. Bernadrus beer being so good). A true treat and probably the best tripel I've ever had. Worth every penny. A must try for craft beer lovers and probably anybody who enjoys trying some new.

This is, in my opinion, the perfect example of a Belgian Tripel.

Gold hazy body with plenty of sediment floating around. Pillow white head at least two fingers worth and stays for a long time.Tangy tart bitter taste. Lemon and bread too.Peppery on the tongue. Creamy feel in the finish.
