3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold. Nose is fresh malt, slight metallic. Buttery, oddly enough, in a good way. Taste is lightly spiced, some yeast, some zing at the end. Really liked the bitterness at the finish; not as much sweet as most tripels i’ve had. Perhaps a downside for the style, but better for my tastebuds. Medium carbonation. Quite pleasing.

Unimaginative tripel. Flat body and the usual sweetness. Needs more depth.

(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 25 July 2013) Hazy golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with dried fruit, citrus, tropical fruit and coriander. Malty, fruity taste with notes of dried fruit, pineapple, orange and gentle floral bitterness in a fairly sweet finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Quite nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 300 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip. ABV is 8%. Beer is made with organically grown ingredients.
Light orange colour, with a very thin white head, less than one finger in height. Very short retention. No activity in the glass except for some bits and pieces floating around in the beer’s body.
Aroma is fruits, mostly apricot, and yeast. Quite subtle. Some sugars and alcohol too.
Taste is sweet up front, with fruits again and some yeasty notes, becomes slighty bitter at the very end, just once you think there is no aftertaste on this one. Nothing to be excited about though.
Thin (for a tripel) to medium body, average carbonation.
An average for this style.
