3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pale, cloudy yellow colour. Big, bubbly head, though frothy on top. Light aroma, mainly spicy, citric. Fruity, spicy and malty taste. Peachy, citric. Hoppy, medium bitter finish. It has a fine and contained taste and hides it alcohol pretty well. Nice.

SPicey aroma, a bit of a skunk essence. inital taste was like sour garbage and the finish was a spicey hop boquet. Very well balanced. This is the brew that i drank last, sending me over the edge. i spent the rest of the morning blowing chunks of undigested onion out of my nose.

This one sells very quickly in my neck of the woods, and it should be no surprise. A very well-balanced brew: sweet, sour, and a nice pinch of alcohol make this one a fine brew.

This beer pours with a huge head. Very malty, with a fruity aroma, and nicely balanced. Darn good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, with an “enjoy before date” of 11/05. Pours with a large, white foamy head that dissipates slowly. Lite gold and bubbly. Minimal haze. The aroma was malty, spicy (though difficult to put my finger on), and I’d also say a bit sour. The flavor was lightly malty and sweet with a clove like spiciness. This initial flavor moves to slightly metallic then yeasty Belgian at the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours a very pale blonde with a nice white head (in its own glass). The aroma is spicy peppery and a little floral. The taste is clean and spicy. A typical tripel; very tasty and inviting in all ways.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft: Light spice with a clean malty aroma behind it. Clear gold with a large lasting white head. Sweet malts with a mild dry finish. Spicy aftertaste. Alcohol well disguised. Medium bodied. Ok but nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy blonde color with a thin white head. Great aroma and flavor of earthy yeast with spices and citrus. Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Very good stuff, I like the combination of earthy yeast and spices.
