3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: Basic sweet and fruity tripel with citrusy hops and dry finish. Ok.
How: Bottle 330ml, probably 3 months old or so.
The look: Partly cloudy golden body with a medium off-white head leaving good lacings
In long: Fruity flavours dry oranges, bananas and citrus juice blend in with the sweetness that reminds me of a crusty sugar pie. Fluffy chewy body, rather yeasty. Finish is surprisingly dry despite the citrusy hops taste being more dominant than the dry grassiness. A bit spicy with the usual coriander but only a little. Competent Tripel but there are plenty of far better options to chose from in this classic genre. Conventional. If all Apostles were so unadventurous they would have talked Jesus into settling down and taking a job at the market. There would have been no Bible and therefore no wars.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a copper color with an off white color head. The aroma is sweet and almost veggy like to my nose, possible fruit in there as well. Nice sweet malt with that suttle fruit and spice, finish was just hoppy enough to bring real character to this triple!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy honey gold hue, with a thick white head, yeasty, sweet pale malt nose, with a subtle spicy coriander accent, a faint fruity orange note, with a mild honeyed aroma, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, spritzy, fruity character, with a peachy, orange peel fruitiness, with a coriander spicy note, with some sweet honeyed pale malt accents, with a warmth mouthfeel, leading towards a fruity, warm, dry hop finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters and vanilla ice cream flow through a grassy and citrusy hop cologne in this lively and creamy Tripel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A rocky, mountainous head of foam laces all around the cloudy beige golden.
-Carbonation is fluffy and active, as one would expect from this Belgian style.
-The mouthfeel is reasonably full, yet the overall effect is quite drinkable.
-Alcohol is not a factor in the flavor profile.
-The wheel has not been reinvented here, it’s just been replicated flawlessly. This was a mighty tasty surprise!
Bottled on 07/12/2006.

App.: Clear golden, foamy white head.
Aroma: Apples and pome fruits, yeast and dough, light coriander and spice, light caramel and sugar.

Flav.: Much like the nose, fruits, light spices, off-dry, alcohol is present in the finish.
Fair, but I’m no disciple of this apostle...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a huge pure white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian malt with some light spices which may include white pepper. Taste is a well balance mix between some semi-sweet Belgian malt, spices and light yeasty finish. Body is quite full with some excellent carbonation and no alcohol was detected. Nothing earth shattering to be found here but very good in any case.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice golden colourwith a big white foam on top leaving lacing. Sediments. Rye bread aroma with spices and caramel in exciting harmony. Flavours are mostly sweet with quite a bit of bready character. Spicy rye notes. Slightly light-bodied for the style, but warming alcohol. An extraordinary tripel in my opinion.
