3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Hazy golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, some wood and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is fruity, nectary, caramelly and quite ok, but still a bit "down to earth" when it comes to creativity.

Bottled at PBF. Cloudy golden, small head. Aroma of pineapple and marzipan. Very sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Sticky honey and marzipan. Peppery alcohol dominate the finish. No reminiscens of Belgian tripels, more like American run-of-the-mill oversweet interpretatipons of the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml. bottle poured to my 1/2 pint taster glass, with a hazed, orange/gold color, modest, off white, bubbly head foam that diminished quickly to a bubbly ring and film, leaving some intermittent ribbons of lacing. The aroma was some light tartness, mid-fruit, a hint of funky yeast, light sweetness, and a touch of caramel. A little cardboardy oxidation was noticed in the flavor, which was mainly mid-fruit and apple, medium hop bitterness, and noticeable alcohol. The body was medium, and the carbonation was low. Probably cellared a little too long, but the abv helped to smooth any flaws.
