2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, 0.33 - no BBE info, as Caulier Tripel, from Alko Arkadia, 20150501) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was medium sized, fizzy and white. Aroma had swetness, grass and milldly honey. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, honey, malts, frutiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A thin and characterless brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear deep copper, small whitish head. Sweet malty, bit of cardboard in aroma, smells like a cheap and strong imperial pilsner. Sweetish, almost fudge-like taste with metallic vibes on the side. Far from an abbey trippel and weird sweet anyway.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
33cl bottle bb09/2015. Gorgeously rich, luminous orange pour with dishwashing liquid head. Intensely soapy, condensed coriander, abv fumes and rotting peach juice in aroma. More dishwashing liquid in taste, to the point where you’d have to ask whether some rinsing agent slipped into this batch. Offish yeast components, synthetic fruit - the first ever spectacularly accidented, nearly unswallowable Proefbrouwerij conconction I’ve had the pleasure of sampling so far, a few notches below Delhaize’s yeast experiments.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ golositalia 2015 Brescia. Ambrata, velata, riflessi aranciati. Schiuma beige chiara fine e persistente. Aroma fruttato, pesca sciroppata, agrume, pompelmo credo, caramello, zucchero candito e lievito belga. Alcool. Gusto amabile, fruttato e zuccherino, poi amara speziata(cannell e zenzero) e quasi di gomma. Poco carbonata mediamente corposa, astringente, rotonda ed abbastanza equilibrata. Calda. Il difetto é la totale assenza di lievito belga al naso.
