St. Bernardus Tripel

We recently had the St. Bernardus Tripel from Brouwerij St. Bernardus. We are big fans of Belgian dubbels and tripels and surprisingly we have never had this before.

At only $4 (from New Beer Distributors) for the 11.2oz bottle (it's usually higher priced), the 8% ABV tripel is definitely a winner.

The beer has a yeasty, bready frothy head on pour, pale orange almost amber in color, slight malty sweetness, a little yeast and ester funk, good hoppiness and a medium to long finish. The orange-citrus component made it kind of refreshing, not heavy or overwhelming.

We'll have to try some of the other St. Bernardus beers, including the Prior 8 Dubbel and Abt 12 Quad. Cheers!
