Poured from tap into tulip, minimal head and lacing. Hazy light golden in the glass. Smells of Belgian fruity esters and slight citrus. Taste different than most tripels I have had, not assaulted by copying sweetness, nice candy sugar sweetness quickly reigned in by mild bitterness, slight lemon flavor coming thru along with a spicy semi dry finish. Very thick and viscous in the mouth and a real nice clean finish. No signs of alcohol heat.

330ml bottle served in a tulip at cellar temperature.

Pours a hazy amber colour. Head dissipates quickly.

Some subdued fresh fruit aroma.

Flavour is dominated by fresh stone fruit. Peaches and apricots. Vinous malt. This is a well-aged bottle, so the candi sugar sweetness and booze have mellowed considerably.

This is a nice but slightly forgettable tripel. I get a couple of these every year when the St. Bernardus Christmas box shows up at the LCBO, but I wouldn't look for it otherwise like I do the quads or dubbels.
