St. Bernardus Tripel

St. Bernardus Tripel

Ratebeer 3.79 97th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +4

Apricots, citrus and yeast hit your nose before the glass even gets close. You could tell this one was a Belgian. The taste gives a strong dose of alcohol, citrus, peaches and a spicy malt sweetness. Very similar in taste to Karmeliet.

Aftertaste +1

It finishes dry and clean. Only the slight alcohol warming, yeast and sweet malt remains.

Alcohol Content +1 8%

Yup its a trippel alright. You can taste and smell it.

Value 0

It was nice but nothing supergreat, I would probably get the Karmeliet instead.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Again sampled at the hotel near Disneyland. It is a small world after all.
Overall 6/10

It was a good beer, but there are better examples in this category. If you can't find this one, grab a Fin Du Monde. They are very similar.
