2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
cloudy light gold with pillowy white head. Banana and other tropical fruits on the nose. Palate is a little thin for the style, with a little too much effervescence. Beyond that, there are nice flavors of candied citrus fruit. Good, just not quite true to style. Hopefully not a bad bottle--might try this one again.

Aroma: intense grain, yeast, light sour. Appearance: hazy, pale, yellow, massive, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: grainy bitters intensify, dry sours coming up, grain sweets start to dominate. Overall: very nice Tripel, great taste and palate, developed too much foam.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle (tasting @VastActive place, thanks). Clear amber color. Bad malty smell! Bad soapy taste. Bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle (Koht Birthday Auction, Tallinn)
Yeasty aroma, alcoholic too. Fairly dull tripel, sweetish malts, strangely it tastes of pens, and some slightly harsh hopping. Finish is vegetal. Really didn’t like the glass I got. Harsh, and rough.

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, black pepper, mustard, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy, sweet and bitter. A weird but good strong Belgian ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
’Modern’, i.e. extra hoppy and IPA-like Belgian tripel, orange blond with off-white head and rich aroma, perfumed with citrussy hops and elegant yeasty spiciness as well as vivid fruitiness. Tastes sweetish and citrussy in onset, very refreshing, then complex yeasty spicy notes on a mellow, agreeable malty backbone and finishing in an earthy and refreshingly citrussy, peppery hop bitterness, lasting long and nicely accompanied with a warming, brandy-like but gentle alcohol effect. Delicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Bier Circus, Brussels. A full- bodied strong dry hopped Belgian ale. Quite complex, leaving very long bitter palate. Markets itself as an IPA, but the style does not quite correspond.
