3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of vanilla and nuts. Hazy yellow with a nice lingering cloud on top. Very fizzy and good, taste of cloves and orange. Great! I had to change the rating throughout the glass, this gets better and better the more you explore.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Hopdevil shared with ozujsko
Poured a huge fluffy white unstable head on dop of a gold/amber body. The nose is ok... yeast, some lemon, grain and alcohol. The taste is spicy, yeasty, some maltiness, chewy hopiness, lemon, some malt and alcohol. A good tripel "diluted with alcohol" (yeah, I know it isn’t). Warming and not unpleasant, but definitely not all that great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden. Yeasty, vineous aroma. The flavor is dominated by sweetness combined with a mixture of spices, I think corriander is one, a quite nice combination of sweetness and spicyness. In the middle the alcohol runs prickling over the tongue.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33cl bottle) Purchased at the Strath in Victoria. Pours a clouded, golden body with a foamy white head. Nose if very perfume with a malted core. This beer can very well be what all Belgian Ales should be compared to (like Guinness is to Stouts). Great oily texture, very brown sugar maltedness and clove elixir finish. Good.
