2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smelled of ’burnt’ essence. Uber head on the pour. A mediocre tripel that I won’t go for again, but far from the worst.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at uber. Apparently I’ve had this and ticked it a "3" at some point. Let’s see what a different mood does for this. Cloudy pale pour with small ring of bubbles for head. Aroma is ... weird. First thing I think is dishwater, followed by overripe fruit, followed by vegetables. Fuck man, I don’t know, but basically nothing in this nose appeals to me. Taste sweet up front, herbal fruity bitterness at end but feels too thick, too sweet, too strong, too gross throughout. Overall: nope, I do not care for this. I’d like to see through the apparent weaknesses of my own palate, but I can’t -- I enjoy no phase of this beer. I’m clearly in the minority.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange pour with large tight white head that lasts a long time. Smells of tart green apples, apricots, some clove, some floral hop and lightly earthy yeast notes. The taste has a bit of hop and acid bite at the front end, then floral honey, apricot, light apple, fresh multigrain bread, musty yeast. Very good balance of sweetness and bitterness. Medium to full bodied. Exceptionally crafted tripel - many are overly sweet but this one has excellent complexity and balance.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange color with big white head. Aroma is apples, citrusy, apricots, toffee, candied sugar, very yeasty. Taste is with tart fruits (hints of balsamico even!), quite a sting at the beginning, again toffee and spices, with a boozy, warming finish. High carbonation. A quite complex Tripel, driven very much by fruit esters and sweetness, the tart sting at the beginning is really adding a lot of character. One of the better Tripels I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml. bottle. Labeled April 2017 on cap. It pours a lightly hazed orange color with a massive, frothy off white head. The aroma is bready with some rather strong apple and pear esters. Dusty yeast. The flavor is strongly alcoholic with honey, orange and apple. Some hints of peppery yeast notes in the finish with more alcohol. Full bodied but well attenuated. Fruit, honey and alcohol stand out. Pretty good, although not really my favorite style.
