3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with a thin, off-white head that descends into a ring. Aromas are weaker than expected but consist mostly of sweet malts, some honey and spice. Taste is at first molasses-sweet and becomes more bitter towards the end. Alcoholic aftertaste. Not bad, but I expected a bit more.

Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours cloudy golden-amber with a thick white head. The nose is soft, doughy, spice, bread, hay, cereal and light toast. The taste is bitter-sweet, light tartness, pear skin, sherbet, apple, doughy, tinned fruit, light alcohol and lemony sherbet with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2014 0,33L bottle, bottled 16.04.2014. Pours hazy amber with off-white head. The small head stays. Aroma is sweet, fruits, caramel candy, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel candy, fruits, spices. Finish is caramel candy and dry bitter with some alcohol (the nasty kind). Overall: great brew, but the nasty alcohol somewhat ruins it.

Cloudy orange color, average sized creamy off white head. Full body, soft carbonation. Aroma of malts, yeast, coriander, some fruitiness. Medium to high sweetness. Sadly, without any surprises. A straightforward, but still very enjoyable tripel.
