It's okay. Taste like what you would expect a "normal" beer to taste like (like it is the most quintessential beer that one could expect). Aftertaste is a bit strong. Ordinary, nothing special.

#2 in the St. Bernardus six pack sampler. Pours a golden yellow into my Chimay 25cl goblet with a bit of sediment , a good amount of carbonation bubbles a one finger head. The head is less creamy and more fizzy than the St. Bernardus Tripel, retention and lacing is lower in this beer. Smells of fruits (lots of apple), raisins, malts and some alcohol. Tastes of fruits (apples again, green ones), yeast, raisins and alcohol, the main difference between this one and the standard St. B tripel is the higher alcohol presence in this beer. Mouthfeel is creamy, good carbonation and still smooth with the alcohol warming the mouth during the finish. Drinkability is good, tasty beverage, think St. B tripel + apples + alcohol, alcohol might get old after a bit.

11,2oz bottle into a goblet

A_Dark thick orange, nearly opaque at top of goblet. Thin bubbly white head that dissipates into a almost transparent top. Rising bubbles keep it lively

S_Plenty of alcohol, a little bit of funk. Moderate to good strength. Lots of goude cheese

T_Can't get away from that great old goude cheese taste. Earthy, a little one dimensional but still very tasty

M_Moderate to light carbonation. Lightly chewy. Could do with a little more gum stickiness

D_Wonderful taste. Not very filling, great aftertaste. Good drinkability

Got this in a mix 6-pack.

A- Pours out a pale straw color. Slightly hazy, but still pretty transparent. Nice light, white foamy head, small bubbles.

S- Very malty, nice spicy belgian characteristic on the front that fades quickly

T- Slightly peppery up front, but fades quickly to that nice round malt flavor. Slight hint of caramel. Aftertaste is very clean. Little to no hop flavor.

M- Nice and light for a tripel. It's a little effervescent, but that's a good thing for this style of beer.

D- It's very light, very nice and could be a good intro beer to belgian tripels to the novice. It has all of the good characteristics of the style with none of the drawbacks.

From notes:

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a frothy 2 finger off white head that has excellent retention, only slowly settling into a thick cap that lasts throughout coating the glass with chunky lacing.

Nice nose with hints of peppery spice, crisp light fruit notes and sweet alcohol. Hints of apple, pear, citrus peel, lemon zest and candy sugar.

Very carbonated up front, tingling the tongue. Hints o slight alcohol, peppery spice, lemon zest and citrus peel. Creamy full body with sweet alcohol, light fruit and alcohol warmth in the finish. The spicy notes are more prominent than the sweet fruit ones but this is still very decently balanced and becomes more drinkable as it warms.
