4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle into chalice glass. Looks appealing with a translucent deep amber body and a large rocky white head that settles to a firm lacing collar. I get
oranges, lemon peel, candy sugar, pine needles, white peppers and alcohol on the nose and this is reflected on the tongue with a lively mouthfeel and medium-full body. Finishes sweet and a little sticky (certainly contrary to the stated description of 30 IBUs). A superior Belgian Tripel that goes down surprisingly easy given the high ABV.

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.
