3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from HO1K. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white ring. Strong aroma of tartness, yeast, and bread. Medium carbonation. Clingy, lightly oily texture. Nice mouth feel. Taste is mostly mildly tart yeast with a somewhat dry finish. Kind of one dimentional. Would be better if the flavor was more complex. Hides the alcohol well.

This is one of the single best beers I’ve had in quite some time. It’s got a beautiful color, a rich taste, and a smooth finish for a beer that’s 10% abv. I love this beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a cloudy golden color with a white head and some lacing. The aroma was underwhelming. It was alcohol and spice. The taste was yeast, banana, clove, and booze. There was a nice carbonation with a slight alcohol burn. The alcohol was noticeable but still hidden for the actual content. This was pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold. Smells strongly of yeast and spice. Taste is a burst full of flavor (at first earthy, malty, and yeasty with a hint of vanilla) that gradually ripens into strong spice and alcohol. Finish is very boozy.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from old notes. Pours a hazy amber/copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma had nice caramel, fruit, yeast, and honey. The flavor had more sweet honey, yeast, a splash of fruit, thin body for a 10% tripel, glad I got to try this, but there are many better examples.
