3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330mL from International Beer Collector BB 19/8/16
Hazy blonde beer, lively looking - holds a good dense creamy inch of head.
Subtle aroma; cereal malts, white sugar, a pretty decent measure of floral, spicy hops, faint tropical/ripe stonefruit note.
Good weight on the body, sits rather nicely, creamy almost velvety , lifted carbonation - doesn’t seem like a 9% beer!
Palate starts sweet - cereally, pilsner/pale malts, white sugar, apricots, unripe peach, even a bit of rockmelon, with peppery phenolics & hint of floral grassy hops. Moderate bitterness, lingering spice on long finish.
Rather liked this - not as polished as better Tripels, but nice flavour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice amber colour with large frothy white head. Aroma is dominated by musty belgian yeast, with honey, toast and apricot jam. The taste is the same but with a very strong booze. Medium bodied and spicy on the tongue. Not bad at all but the lack of subtlety with the booze really detracts.
