1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hazy golden-orange, slim white head. Aroma is thin, but sweet. As is the taste: way too sweet, therefore no specific notes too be distinguished. Candy. Oily mouthfeel, thick body, medium-low carbonation. Overall: terrible.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Completely hazy with bits in it. Orange color with small to medium head.
NOSE : dough, yeast, orange, apricot, pear, lactic notes.
SIP : medium body with lively carbonation. Smooth and oily. Sweet dough with strong yeast background. Fruity aromas along the way mixing with booze. For 9,5% it is well hidden. Still it warms after couple of sips. Aftertaste is sour and delicately bitter. It is still cloying sweet till the end. OVERALL : the beer seams out of balance. Cloying sweet and yeasty. Not my kind of beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber coloured body with a brown tint and almost no head at all - this is NOT what a trip should look like. Aroma of yeast, malt, wheat, alcohol, raisins and other pit fruits with a bit of cardboard and earthy nuts. Medium-bodied; Strong alcohol flavour at first with malt, pit fruits, apples, pears and a bit of caramel nuttiness. Aftertaste shows some yeast with a good fruity character and a definite alcohol flavour at the end. Overall, an interesting, but unfortunately not good beer that doesn’t remind me of any tripel that i’ve ever had - but who’s to say I can judge, since I’m not Belgian! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Beer Mania in Bruxelles, Belgium on 30-June-2012 for €2,50 sampled at home on the other side of the Ocean in Washington on 14-December-2012.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear blond beer with a small white head. Aroma of bread, nuts and dried fruits. Seems also a bit aged to me. Strange malty sweet taste. A bit oxydized I’m sure. To bad the label is not showing any experation date at all. Aftertaste of dried nuts and fruits.
