3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Bottled 2011. Pours a bit hazy and dark amber colour with a frothy medium beige head. Very aromatic, and feels very round in the nose. I sence hay, grains and amber malt. Itís also fruity with some pear from the belgian yeast. Some wood, leather, herbs and dried fruit in the end. Pretty mellow flavours with more fruits, and sweet bread, root beer, orange peel, dried fruits and some wood. A touch of alcohol in the end. Nice soft and slick mouthfeel. Bitterness = light+. A real belgian ale but not like an average tripel; pretty dark.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Bready, red fruits, malts and alcohol on the nose. Cloudy dark orange with a foamy head. Sweet yeast with a bit of alcohol, no real burn or bitterness. A little too sweet for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Murky deep orange amber with a colossal chunky head that retains beautifully. Aroma is sweet and fruity, lots of ripe peaches, soft yeast. Sticky sweet fruity flavours, peaches and melons and pears, with a faint earthy quality that hints at smokiness even, but not quite. Really cool! Despite the sweetness, it never becomes cloying. Not a classic tripel, but thatís probably why I liked it!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Had to let set for a few days to clear as there is a lot of fine yeast sediment in the bottle. Super carbonated. Pours half dark amber and half head. Belgian yeast aroma with some alcohol and perhaps some sugar note. Big alcohol and sharp initial taste. Can feel the carbonation and taste some baking soda, hops and alcohol note. Not a subtle beer. Sweet.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle bottled on 02/02/12 pours a hazy orange amber color with a massive off-white rocky head that leaves some thick spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy with some light fruits and earthy notes. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with some light pitted fruits and an earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. Quite a bit different than many of the tripels I have sampled and is very tasty and highly recommended.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light amber, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and sweet aroma, some caramel and fruitiness, light spiciness (coriander), light hoppyness and some alcohol. Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and sweet flavor, caramel and some fruitiness, light spiciness and alcohol. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish, some caramel and light spiciness, some alcohol. Sugary sweet tripel with caramel (despite of spiciness and alcohol) - thatís it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Stefe Piwa. On train to Líviv. Has been agitated so not looking so nice, but has decent head. Aroma is poignantly yeasty, sweet, and fruity. Peaches and ripe pears, and a ripe mango. The flavors follow. There is a lot of tropical fruit, a decent hopping with just a smack of bitterness in the finish, and it feels strong. Solid malt character. A bit sweet and yeasty but its still pleasant, and not cloying, and the bottle agitation might be making it yeastier than its supposed to be. But it is a strange tripel.
