Me impressionei com essa tripel. Eu estava esperando menos e encontrei um grande cerveja. Seu excessivo amargor me agradou e eu gostei de sua rusticidade. Acredito que ela seja uma respeitável tripel, que agrega muito valor para a cervejaria St. Bernardus.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe website (£2.69):
Orange/amber with 0.5cm of tiny white bubbles and plenty of visible carbonation. Head retention is good considering the strength & it holds for a few minutes.

Lively & fruity as well with some orange and citrus notes on top of an apple and grape base. Naturally the beer is quite sweet as a result of the fruits and comes with some sugar and some peppery spice too with alcohol well hidden.

Sweet with orange & citrus plus some grapes and a little Belgian yeast on top of some banana too although this is quite light and barely detectable at first. There is a floral, almost perfume like taste that starts to come through alongside some tropical fruits and some peppery spice.

Crisp and lively with plenty of carbonation and a medium body that is quite sweet and dry, particularly towards the end of the beer. The beer had a great balance to it with the fruits all coming together well to completely hide the alcohol in the beer.

One that I quite enjoyed and one that despite the strength went down quite easily thanks to the good balance between fruits and the lively carbonation. I was expecting the beer to be a good one and it didn't disappoint and despite the fact the finish was a dry one.

A-Pours a hazy orange/yellow hybrid. Head is big, doughy and fluffy. Thick, sporadic lacing.

S-Aroma is pleasant. I am usually far from enamored with Tripels, especially in the aroma. It's rich with Belgian yeast, spice and fruit but I find the yeast to be far less overpowering than many of the style. It's pretty nice.

T-Again, the yeast doesn't come on too strong and there is a bunch of juicy fruit (peach, apple, pear). Light spiciness. He best part of the flavor (which I don't find in most of the style)'is a fairly robust, sweet, crackery maltiness. It's the best part.

M-Quite drinkable. I will attribute most of that to its relatively low ABV for the style. Softer carbonation.

O/D-One of the better Tripels I have tried. I shouldn't be surprised, it's a classic for those who lose the style. The depth of the beer's maltiness was by far the biggest takeaway for me.
