2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smaak is sinaasappel en honing en voelt iets zwaar aan als likeur. Nasmaak is kort met weinig finesse, alsof een vuig zuurtje op de tong wordt gedropt. Het gaat toch iets vervelen op den duur. Aroma is diezelfde zoetigheid, bijna muf-zoet. Kraag is niet veel met wat gele glans op oranje.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip glass, ABV 8.5%
Deep orange colour on the body, quite hazt, with a small but thick white head sitting on top. Good retention, lots of lacing left around the glass.
Aroma of sweet malts, sugars, peaches.
Tastes sweet and boozy, quite malty, some fruity notes rising under the alcohol. I donít get any of the other grains, well,maybe the wheat a bit.
Medium body, good carbonation and nice dryness on the palate.
Overall good tripel, I canít say I didnít enjoy the first sipsbut after a while it becomes a bit boring.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Bieropholie, shared, served cool in a tulip glass. Lots of citrus zest, a little funk, some nice sweet honey malt, tropical fruits, a little rye character, spiciness, interesting. Medium body, fairly restrained carbonation. Citrus peel, lots if rich maltiness, honey, sweet, a little spiciness, a bit of diacetyl (I think), a bit of a different take on a tripel; a little sweet with gentle bitterness and a quite malty and lemony finish. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured at room temperature. Golden beer with a rich white head. Sweet honey, caramel scents. Taste is honey with a light, fizzy carbonation, leaving the tongue tingling. Caramel and bready notes are present, as well as banana. The aftertaste is also sweet and a little heavy with alcohol. Itís somewhat like a cross-over between a triple and a barley wine. Quite enjoyable, Iíd say.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, deep golden colour with a big and off-white foamy head. Sugary and biscuity malty aroma with notes of candy, caramel, a subtle fruity touch of ripe pears and alcohol. Sweet and delicately bitter flavour, almost full bodied with a calm carbonation. Robust malty base with notes of biscuits, caramel and booze, the latter leading into a stickily sweet and alcoholic finish. Simply strong and sweet, lacks complexity. 01.III.14
