3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tripel with a thick, creamy, snow white head and clear deep golden blonde colour. Aroma of raw potato, green apple, peach, straw, gooseberry and quite some DMS (cooked vegetable). Taste subduedly fruity, applish touch, sourish accent, a bit grainy and lightly bready, sharp carbonation, minerally, leafy hop bitter finish with some ’jenever’-like, but not astringent alcohol. Decent enough.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,33L bottle. Pours hazy golden with off-white head. The small head stays for a moment. Aroma is fresh fruits, yeast, malt and citrus. Flavor is very sweet, fresh fruits, yeast, wheat. Finish is mild dry bitter. Carbonation is high. Alcohol is some-what noticeable, but not distracting. Overall: rather simple and too sweet, not enough bitterness to balance the sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, with notes of flowers and yeast and touches of malt. Sweet flavour of malt and fruit, with hoppy and floral notes and touches of hops. Aggressive carbonation. Lingering sweetish afteraste. Boozy. Too sweet for the style if you ask me, but drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 7.5%. Sweet aroma, seems like liquorice? Unclean-smelling. Cloudy amber colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is sweet and caramelly with a herbal note, spicy, cinnamon? Quite unclean flavour, too. Tastes like a spice/herb/vegetable to me.
