4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Keg at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a straw yellow, finger of head. Aroma is brilliant: up close, it’s banana, clove, honey, toffee, classic Tripel. At a bit more of a distance, the vapours smell like incense sticks! Taste is great as well - soft toffee, banana, clove, a little bit of orange, cinnamon (almost apple pie), plenty more spice. Long finish, very nicely balanced: not too cloying, bitterness doesn’t overcompensate. Lovely stuff, really nice.
