3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 330ml bottle
Aroma / Appearance - Rich bitter chocolate, bread yeast, a hint of fruitiness and some barnyard tones. The body is a deep walnut brown with a one-finger head that foams then dies.
Flavor / Palate - Buttery coca, subtle hop esthers and a low-key bitterness precede the main flavors of creamy caramel and sweetness. The alcohol is distinct but not overpowering. Every sip grasps the corners of my mouth and refuses to let go for minutes. This was extremly easy to drink with a dry, creamy finish. I might have to try this again in the larger bottle - I am sure I could finish it off just as easily as the smaller version.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Sampled from a 750ml brown bottle this beer pours a cloudy ocher-gold color with a huge yellow-white head. The aroma is dryish, musty and had light fruity and floral hop present. The flavor is bitter, bready, yeasty and has a sharp floral hop presence. the finish is long, sour, bready and a bit chewy with a floral and fruity hop bitterness that lingers. Fairly full bodied.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours gold/orange with yeast bits and a large, fluffy, white head. Lots of dense lacing. Aromas of bread, fruit, yeast, coriander and banana. Flavor matches aromas with some spice and more bitterness than I expected. Finishes dryer than most triples, slightly sour, nice. Mouthfeel is thin for a triple, but still substantial. Carbonation seems just right. Overall a very nice Triple.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange ufiltreret øl købt i Tyskland.
Samger bittert og let sur - og smagen af alcohol er tydelig.
Havde forventet en tung og let sødlig øl, som de fleste belgiske øl.
Kødelig øl af denne type
