3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.
Looks: Translucent golden colour with a thin ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Explosive three finger head with lasting crumpety white foam; Beautiful sticky lacking and fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant and quite sweet Pils malt, with banana, vanilla, caramel, quite strong alcohol, sugar, bubblegum, earth, bread, strong Bel yeast, lemon and light grass.
Taste: Close to strong sweet malt, with caramel, toffee, quite strong alcohol, fair liquorices, shades of dark fruits, sugar, earth, spices, bread, strong Bel yeast, lime, moderate bitter hops and grass.
Body: Full body. Thick and creamy palate.
Mouth Feel: Good Pils maltyness in a slick and very smooth background. Quite alcoholic but its taste doesn’t scream that much, some comfy warmth and light liquorices. That’s nice! Other tastes are quite monotone with just caramel and toffee, not much fruity ester here. Sweetness is strong but not quite cloying, good earth and spiciness. Bready with nice lime to round. Simple but good!
Hoppiness: Lemon and light grass in nose. Lime, spice, and grass in taste; Bitterness, mixed with liquorices is moderate for a lasting, close to strong astringent sweet bitter finish.
After Taste: Quite dry. Sweet and fairly bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one has excellent looks and heads, good fruity aroma, nice sweetness and well managed booze. Taste wise, there’s a little lack of esters and can be more bold in hoppiness. Drinkable but it can do better to be top!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle with Thompson @ Buitenlust. Smell gives you some hops and yeast. Foamy, white head with a pretty light color. Taste is stronger than the smell would make you think. Gives you hops, some yeast and slight taste of herbs. Overall, a reasonably light flavoured triple.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer pours a hazy golden color with thick chunks of sediment floating throughout the beer. There is a thick soapy white head that dissipated rather quickly and didn't leave much lacing around the glass. The aroma is dark fruits and sweet. The taste is similar to the aroma. I pick up dark fruits like plums and figs. There is some candy sugar noticeable in the flavor as well.
