4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. In the cellar for 2.5 - 3 years. Pours amber with some SERIOUS sediment (even after the first pour) and an off-white head. On the nose sultana raisins, candy like notes, light honeydew melon, faint Belgian yeast, and light tangy apple. Taste wise, I think the cellar is responsible for the raisiny notes, with some alcohol, green apple, dried fruit into mineral bitterness, a light woody note, bready notes, and some alcohol in the finish. If I tasted this blindfolded, I would never guess tripel, as it has quite a few quad-like tastes going on. Maybe the age has added a new dimension to this, but I sure do enjoy it a lot more than the reviews say I should.

Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nicely balanced

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Yamaya. New import to Japo. Rich, malty nose, honey and biscuits, orange and lemon. Honey-looking deep gold with orange, medium head that quickly vanishes. Very sweet, thick, rich. Orange, peach, lemon, honey. Huge malt and quite a bit of alchol to balance. This is too young, but still pretty good. Heavy, syrupy, but so,eho works because of the Alcohol. Could be great with a year or so on it.

Bit hazy light amber, lots of sparkling, frothy white head, ok lacing patches. Interesting semisweet aroma with vinous notes, fruityness, bit red berries, distant grass, caramel malt, nuance and lively. Fizzy, sweet and bitter, alcohol is there mostly as warmth, belgian feel, berries again, long finish is complex, flowery tones also. Nuanced, lively, tasty, one with character.
