One of the better triples I've had

Pours hazy gold with active carbonation and two for ne'er head the retains throughout
Smell is bready with slight clove scent
Taste is somewhat bitter spice on the backend with a banana and clove taste up front
Feel is soft carbonation that really activates the subtle flavors
Over all this is a well done triple that will make you consider joining a Monistary! Hats of to the brothers!

Poured from 11.2oz bottle into Chimay goblet.

L - Slightly hazy copper gold pour with a finger of off-white foam.

S - Straw, pears in syrup, white bread.

T - Grassy bitterness, apricot, grape skins, marmalade, overall sweet with a bitter back end.

F - Stinging carbonation and a slight astringency on the tongue.

Nicely complex, not too many spice notes, juicy and refreshing.

Really nice tripel. Great mouthfeel with a nice carbonation. This beer is quite dry and fruity as hell. Mostly orchard fruits esters are present and the balance is good. Once again a great beer from st bernardus

This beer pours a clear yellow with a large head. The aroma offers up apricot, tart lemon, clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. The flavor has notes of banana and apricot at first, followed by nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon with a good dose of sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a touch of heavy sweetness. Overall this is not as complex as other examples of this style, but is more easy drinking for it.
