2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, 6.3% ABV, shared by Elisabeth and Stefan. Soapy, beige head atop of an amber-like body. Sweet fruits and sweet malts to the nose. Brown malts, overripe plums and notes of yeasty fruitiness in flavour. Soft in the mouth. Quite boring (rating session in Tromsø, 18.11.2010).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a gigantic yeasty head and an amber-brown body. Faint aroma of cola and roasted barley, and then some sugary funkiness. Taste is a cross of cola and chocolate, some barley notes. Astringent finish. I found this a little too sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle @ home. Rated @ 21.5.2010.
Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a foamy head. Medium sweet on the nose with caramel malts, citrus and banana. The taste is fruity at first, but caramel malts take over quite fast. Dry finish. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Pretty much the same as their Gouden Tripel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Dark reddish-bown beer. Huge head, trappist glass needed. The aroma has some dried dark fruits, berryish hint of alcohol and a hint of herbal hops. Strawberries and orange appear when it gets a bit warmer. Light candi sugary and roasted finish. Some phenols from the yeast. Quite light mouthfeel, texture s smoothly carboanated. Some tacky frutiniess in the late finsih. Simple and straigtforward.

Bottle from alko, Finland.
High carbonation that quickly totally dissapears. Clowdy red-orange color. Small but typical Belgian aroma with some medium dark malts. Small sweetness and fine body for a double.
