3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Huge white and fizzy head what mostly lasted. Good lacing could be observed in glass. Light cloudy body with a golden colour. Aroma was yeast, light citrus, spicy, coriander. Medium to full bodied with a warming alcoholic and slightly dry texture and an average carbonation. Good flavour balance between the bitter and sweet.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A beautiful Abbey Tripel. I bought this because I have been on a Belgian kick and this is a nice suprise. Pour is a dark orange with a huge white head that you have to cut through with a machete. The aroma was of yeast and spice. The taste was very yeasty with some pepper and hops. Heavy carbonation with small bubbles that act like the ones on that old cleaner commercial (the ones with the mustaches that go down the drain-scrubbing bubbles). I’ve babbled enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured golden with orange, lots of dense tiny bubbles that hung tenaciously to the side of the glass,
citrus and yeasty fragrances, funky, pale malt fragrance, soft sweetness, banana fruitiness, taste of pale malt and lemon, peppery, this is not as sweet as other triples I have tried, alcohol hiddened until the brew warms up some, lots of carbonation, nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light orange with a soapy off-white head. The aroma has a good amount of spice and Belgium earthy funky yeast, light banana esters and a syrupy sweetness. Medium body that is slick, but has a lot of prickly carbonation. The taste starts out with sweet malt that is somewhat cloying, a lot of spiciness and it seems hoppier than most tripels. The finish has some yeast and apparent alcohol showing through. An adequate tripel, but nothing exciting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy orange with a big lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is huge ripened citrus and sweet malts. At first I thought I had finally found a Belgian that did not impress me but I was wrong. This is not the best I have ever had but it is indeed pretty impressive. Flavor is tart fruits and rich spices. Ten minutes later and the head is still there fluffy as ever.

330 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear yellow gold with a massive, frothy white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma reminds me very much of hay. Flavor is sweetgrass with some tart green apples. The alcohol is fairly well hidden. A bit thin, but easy to drink.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours an atractive hazy cider-gold with a lovely white head. The aroma is pretty nice - peaches and citrus mingle with musty cellar. But the flavor is a huge disappointment. Sour and sharp with a bit of over-microwaved tupperware container, watery finish like the runoff from blueberries, Mouthfeel is thin and astringent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Huge fluffy beige head over a hazy orange body. Delicious acidic fruit aroma; citrus, dried apricot and green apples. Mild spices and yeast as well. Both sweet and fruity flavors, orange peels, peaches, pale malts and spices. Crisp and lively mouthfeel. Alcohol very well hidden. Dangerously easy to drink. This is my type of beer...
