3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle at Alvinne. Pours slight hazy brown and with almost no head. Aroma is light spiced. Flavour goes into a light spiced and light caramel malt flavour. Ends solid spiced, slight too spiced for my for liking - still good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 Bottle (as Gertrudis Tripel)
Gusher. Muddy orange body. Off-white creamy/fizzy head. Ok lace. Aroma of orange with some caramel. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour with some citric hints (and anise). Quite watery and tart. Not very intense, nor complex. This is not what I would call a tripel, but I don’t mind too much about styles.

Pale orange with a huge rocky lasting and lacing head. Sweet and fruity, more than other tripels I’ve sampled. (except one perhaps, one i’ve never considered a real tripel) With a dry and spicy finish. Nice.
