33cl bottle. Hazy pale golden colour with a nice white head. Caramel, bread, orange peel, peach, spices and floral aroma. Quite complex. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is complex but balanced with sweet notes up front and a more bitter and spicy finish. Very drinkable. Overall, a very good beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is golden amber with tons of white head with great retention. Nose has a light dustiness to it, moderate malt presence, caramel, faint oxidation. Flavor follows suit, lots of malt, slightly stale caramel, some oxidation, high carb, full body, overly sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear orange gold with a one-finger head that dissipates. Tripel-like nose with some banana, pear, peach and green apple with a touch of black pepper. Medium body with slightly above average carbonation. Leaning sweet on the palate at the beginning then a rush of peppery bitterness comes in towards the finish. Hides the alcohol very well. The nose deceptively hides the bitter finish. Another solid beer from De Ranke.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 8% ABV. Clear golden body, small head. Spicy aroma with rich malt, the yeastiness is not assertive. Clean malty taste with some light cloves, light honey and cookie dough. Rather malty and well made strong ale. Has a few Abbey Tripel aspects and also some malty strong lager characteristics. Smooth and easy for just regular drinking but it’s not very complex or memorable.
