Pours a murky golden color with light sediment floating around. Poured a thick white cap that hung around leaving lacings as it fell. Aroma is citrus, yeast, wheat, light caramel, honey, banana, apple, pear, and alcohol. Flavor is syrupy honey sweet, with citrus, banana, yeast, and wheat. Mouthfeel is medium body, medium carbonation, and dry alcohol finish. Excellent beer.

Golden copper elixir like liquid butterscotch. A fluffy all white head hold itself nicely and when it finally fades it leaves a thin yet filling lace in its path.

Rich with clove and caramel, apricot and yeast aromas. Honey comb, melon and a bit of tart berry even. Some spicey esters than follow through with a spritz of carbonation.

Clove, caramel, yeast, belgian spices, candy sugar, herbal flavors, greenery, earth round out the flavors with good carbonation and a creamy middle. Honey comb peach, white pepper, and hints of plantain follow through to the long finish. Delicious!!

Serving type: on-tap

33 cl bottle dated best before the end of 2004. Pours a muddled golden hue with some orange highlights into the St. Bernardus balloon-shaped chalice. Cappuchino-like frothy head and a few darker colored yeast and protein coagulation chunks left in suspension. Nose is mostly of sweeter, bready malts, yeast and a complex fruitiness ranging from apples to tropical fruits. Initially malty and doughy sweet on the palate with lively effervesence, then turning yeasty and fruity and finishing dry and estery. Warming alcohol effect on the esophagus and stomach. Pretty unique and unconventional style of a tripel even though this is a classic whose recipe has not been tampered with. So I take back "unconventional".
