It’s always a joy to unwrap safety wire from a cork on a bottle of brew. And so it is with this bottle, which resembles a wine bottle containing 1 pint 9.4 fl. Oz. (not resembling the bottle in the pic above) and so it goes, and there it goes, nice cork power! It has an interesting opaque cloudy amber yellow color, thick frothy head~fruity~ a light smell of zingy champagne fizzyness. Enjoyable and fun to hold in the mouth, light and dry, balanced with a hop finish tapering off with fizz. Very fizzy! This would be a good one to share with your lovable dear friend. A definite heart warmer, and something to be shared.

Pretty golden colour, lots of carbonation, big white head. Aroma of cheese. Tastes too sweet. Not that good.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml. Pours a light orange/golden color with a minimal head. If I was going to describe this in one word, it would be caramel. It’s right in the front and tends to overshadow the other flavors (grass, fruits, raisins). Overall, pretty watered down, but still a decent brew. Not your typical triple.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Understated bottle, fascinating taste that quickly reveals balanced elements of bitterness and malt. Significant sedimentation in the bottle forms a nice swirling cloud of flakes suspended in a golden, champagne-like liquid beneath a sudsy, fine, and persistent head. A slighty skunky aroma disguises the remarkable taste, only hindered by traces of must in the finish - unless, of course, you like that kind of thing!

Bottle: Pours a yellow body, with a nice sized white head. Aromas of spice, and citrus....possibly pears??, Alcohol is definately present as well as in the taste. Flavors of citrus and bitterness. Fairly smooth for the alcohol content. Was definately enjoyable!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden straw color, only slightly cloudy. Poured with a 1 finger thick white head that dissipated to a thin head-film quickly. Smelled of hops and wheat. Taste was sweet and mildly hoppy. As other reviewers have already stated, it hides the fact that its 9% alcohol well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is pale golden with a light, fizzy head and gobs of flocculated yeast. The nose is musty with notes of Gruyere cheese, toasted meringue and sweet malt. The palate is straightforward with massive caramel, heavy malt and very faint hops as the finish quickly fades.
