2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quite sweet opaque brew. More like a dunkelweizen than a tripel. Actual cloves were used in the brewing process and the aroma and the flavor are dominated by it. Not badly executed but I just do not like the cloves that much.

Vom Händler aus NL in der Flasche bezogen. Trübes Goldgelb mit feinporigem weißem Schaum. Der typische Tripelhefegeschmack wird überdeckt durch eine Prise hinzugegebener Gewürznelke. Man muss das mögen oder eben nicht!

The described strong aroma didn’t get through to me. I did enjoy the full texture and it’s a nice Tripel nevertheless.

Wow... Direct kruidnagel aroma met ook banaan. Schuimkraag is snel weg, goud blond en troebel. Smaak duidelijk de Belgische gist... Zoet, banaan, bubbelgum. Maar ook weer kruidnagel. Het is mij net even te veel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy yellow to golden with a small white head and an aroma of mainly cloves, but also banana, citrus, toffee, cough syrup and dried plums. The taste is pretty heavy sweet with still mainly cloves. Not really bad, just a bit one-dimensional.

Bottle. The pour is a hazy bright orange. The aroma is fairly light. The taste is light banana, with a lot of other fruit notes. A little nutmeg in there as well. Easy drinking beer with a lot of flavor.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. 15 cl sample. The aroma has big time clove, clove and clove again. Well I do like clove, but not shit loads of it. :-) Hazy, golden-orange coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is sticky sweet, has clove again, hint of Belgian yeasty earth tones, some citrus. Clove is not that dominant in taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tripel effectively spiced with cloves - so the cloves ’warning’ on the label does not simply refer to clove-like phenols produced by certain Belgian and German yeast strains. Thick, sticky, frothy, snow white head over a misty golden blonde beer with peachy hue. Aroma strongly dominated by cloves, way too much so for my taste, with an obviously very spicy but even somewhat medicinal effect; further hints of banana, caramel, gin, hay, dried apricot. Sweetish onset, pear, honeyish accent, soft carbo, smooth mouthfeel, caramelly malts, light yeastiness, and as expected, a strong domination of spicy, medicinal, resiny, bittersweet cloves overpowering the soft, earthy hop bitterishness in the end. Too much of a one-trick pony for me but at least this is an original take on the Belgian tripel style and it does keep me interested in the rest of this range.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Pours a cloudy deep golden with a fairly big, rocky head. Banana and Belgian yeast and candy sugar aromas. A little aqueous with a spice/clove finish. Average tripe at best.
