3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy amber colour, white head. Aroma of apple, green apple, quite sweet, fruit, bubblegum and honey. Quite bitter hoppy flavour, sweet malts. Bitter finish, caramel, light sweet notes, bubblegum and fruits.
Nice brew! /And on an entirely unrelated note: during this rating, on the first day of the Brugs Beer Festival -we went there later-, my pen broke down. The exact one I got last year at the hotel I stayed in at Brugge, for -indeed- the previous BAB festival. Almost as if the pen knows..

Hazy orange brown, white head. Very fruity tripel (oranges, grapefruit, lemon), yeast, some soap. High on carbonation which suites the beer well. Nice tripel.
