St.Bernardus : Watou Tripel

LOOK: Pours a hazy deep gold, almost peach color. Some yeast sediment is in the beer, which was not unexpected. Soapy froth forms and recedes to a ball in the center due to the etched goblet pulling in the carbonation.

SMELL: Pungent Belgian yeast, noble hops, medicinal notes. Toffee, sour apple and saltwater taffy.

TASTE: Raw tripel here, you have fruity suggestions of some pear, ripe apple and even darker fruit notes. Creamy, sugary malt profile. Picking up a bit of raisin as well. Hops are lying low with a resinous bitterness that lies on the fringes of the flavor profile along with light hoppy acidity. A touch medicinal working with mineral elements from the water and hop flowers. The yeast has a fruity, yet also peppery character. Flavors of unprocessed honey, toffee and grass show more as it warms. Quite refreshing.

FEEL: Medium bodied, soft medium fine carbonation. Yeast sediment gives the beer a slick, chalky finish.

OVERALL: A fine tripel, with different dynamics than the St.Bernardus Tripel. No hint of booze, this drinks like a monk's table beer. I am glad I had the opportunity to drink a bottle of this well made, authentic Belgian beer.
