3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Uber sweet and missing a mid palate. A tough style to do properly and although the classic tripel flavours are there, this falls well short of the benchmarks. Candi sugar, dried apple and spice, insulin not included.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of candied sugar, sweet green apples / pears and light yeast. Flavour is strange, with some weird mint / peppermint notes, candied sugar, some light sweet fruits. Not at all traditional-styled. The weird mint flavours throw this off for me. Subpar.

WA Belgianfest. Orange gold with minimal head. Aromas of candy sugar, coriander and spice. Tastes of yeast, bread, and spiciness--and a definite warming alcohol sensation.
