3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from crackedkettle.com - cloudy reddish-orange colour with a poor head retention; strong aroma of orange peels, marzipan and candy sugar; light notes of solvant; thick and full-bodied with a very sweet malt backbone, sticky and with a late and fair bitterness; very sweetish and fruity (peach, oranges) aftertaste - good but definitely the kind of beer which will give me an headache

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear gold with big, light off white, smooth head that fades slowly with good lacing and no bubbles in the body. Nose is fresh, citrusy hops, light fruit, sweet with some bitterness, light banana, pineapple. Mouth is chewy, initially bitter with light fruit, sweetness and alcohol on the swallow. light banana, light malt, orange, citrus, fresh grassy hops throughout, lingering bitterness, a bit of chocolate. The big thing that distinguishes this from Lusten & Lasten and other Tripels I’ve had is the big, bitter hop character.
