2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Deep orange-tinted golden with a very brief head that doesnít even leave a ring. Nose is estery spice and caramel. Sweet and sticky body, with spicy yeast esters that mirror the nose. Simplistic, too sweet and cloying.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice finger of head on a clear, dark copper colored body.
The aroma is caramel, bread and candy.
A really sweet start on the taste, that continues middle to end. Kind of malty. A little alcohol heat at the end too. The sweetness is overbearing though.
A little fizzy texture, moderate carbonation and medium body.
The sweetness was too much for me. Other than that, itís fine.

Poured clear amber with a small lacing off white head. Aroma of raisins, some herbs and candy sugar. Taste of caramel and fruity yeasts, light herbs, some spicies, burnt sugar. Not a tripel rather a belgian amber-semidark one.
