4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2008 Bottle. Hazy honey color, scant head, bad retention. Flavor is tinny, sweet and mellow, apricot notes. Flavor is overly sweet, nectar, pear, one dimensional. Mouthfeel is bubbly and silky, good fresh characters. I was a bit let down by this, above average, but not amazing. Rerate - better than I remember. Mellow, well balanced, and super chewy triple. Doughy with tons of floaters. Much better than I remember. Rerate - tremendous, great balance, super beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The ’mad bitch’, Dolle’s unsubmissive tripel since 1993, originally a commissioned beer. Firm, thick, off-white head, quickly decreasing under the influence of the alcohol content. Deep orange blonde colour, misty. The nose is treated with a strong smell of orange juice and orange liqueur, richly perfumed with flowery hops, honey, caramel candy, vanilla, apple peel, jute, dried ginger, peppermint, nutmeg, grass, pineapple. Sweet onset with lots of caramel malts and orange, strong carbonation, smooth, evolving into a rewarding dry, flowery and herbal hop bitterness, supported by a lot of warming alcohol, on the brink of becoming astringent but just managing to remain undisturbing. Keeps well in the cellar too, certainly for a Dolle beer, which are usually at their best when cracking fresh from tap at the brewery itself.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy amber with a soft, white head. Floaties! The aroma has strong fruit, reminds me of an apple fig newton. Also has some sweet alcohol, toasted sugar, and pear esters. The flavor is intense. Sweet toasted biscuit, bread crust, light carameln toffee, apple, alcohol, and spices. Finishes a touch tart, on the sweeter side of balanced. Pretty good but different.

Sweet flavour of caramel malt and fruit, complemented rich notes of hops and flowers. Rough and swetish afteraste. Warming alcohol presence, permeating every aspect of the tasting experience, but it is well-integrated. Nice. Very nice.
