Served into a Bernardus tulip.

A - Cloudy orange hue with a one-finger pale head. Fair retention and decent lacing.

S - All kinds of warm fruits: peach , pear and apricot come to mind. Sweet yeast and lightly spiced.

T - Lemon, vanilla and pale malts compose the base of the flavor. Slight bitterness from hops with a dash of spice, perhaps a touch of pepper.

M - A bit dry for my tastes in a tripel. Creamy medium body with average carbonation.

O - This is a good brew that is worth having on occasion but I do not understand how it has gathered quite so much hype.

Poured from a 12oz to a Tulip

A- hazy gold w/ floaties, 2" white head

S- citrus, apricot, caramel, grains, pils malt

T- citrus, apricot, caramel, toffee, grain, hay, acidic after taste

M- almost creamy, crisp carbonation

O- awesome brew. I picture myself drinking this at a farm on a summer day. There's so many farmhouse like flavors, grains, hay, apricots, citrus fruits, and refreshing pils malts. On top of that, your given awesome caramel, toffee, and the mouth feel is creamy. Try this!

A-pours a hazy, golden yellow with great lacing and nice head

S- yeasty bread with lemon and clove, a hint of apricots and tangerine

T-similar to the nose, but with a citrus peel flavor balanced by the sweetness of the malt and fruitiness of the yeast; the hops are noticeable, but not overbearing, to balance things out

M-crisp and smooth; great medium body; a surprisingly dry finish with a lingering taste of sugar coated tangerine (the orange gummy circles with sugar on top comes to mind); nice carbonation

O-really hard to find faults in St. Bernardus; always has been one of my favorite breweries; fantastic beer
