2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle. Leaving it alone long enough and it wants out of the bottle this. In the glass it’s what you can call a crystal clear one. It’s golden, deep golden in color and it a has a small quickly islandy bright white head. Smells a bit like oil and metal. Traces of white bright candied sugar and something floral. A bit of dental floss with some sweet fruit juice in the background. Not to extreme really but not bad either. It’s sharp metallic in the taste. Copper and oil before a medium strong alcohol sharpness kicks in. It’s above average on the almost creamy carbonation level and it feels oily in the mouth. It has some sort of fruit juice touch to it but I can’t put my finger on just what it is. All in all drinkable, but not something I will be having again. 27.03.2014

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33 flaske på hytta til Sigmund april-14: en lys og lett belgisk triple. Litt aroma av krydder og de berømte belgiske gjærstammer, hva skulle vi dedikerte hjemmebryggere og ølnerder gjort uten? Selv om Ovesen sier at smaken er pappaktig. Mandler sier Odd Gunnar. Lett drikkbar sier jeg. Fint filmskum, klar og gylden.
