4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl. Pours a dark yellow to orange coloured beer. Fine creamy and thick white head. Smells like spices, citrus and hops. A very pleasant full bitter taste with a hint of alcoholsweetness. Aftertaste ends dry with some hints of citrus and koriander. One of the best tripels I had in the past few months!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske: Gul let uklar øl med et stort boblende skumhoved. Fornem karbonation der giver et dejligt frisk udtryk på en gærdomineret trippel der smager fornemt. Let drikkelig og frisk, men en smule en dimensionel som eneste ting der trækker lidt ned. Lækker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2011 Verdammt! explosively agressive gusher with a timed delay - took me quite by surprise, and now my socks and trousers are wet, not to mention that the floor also got some. what beer is left is clear orange, smooth white head. appearance penalty points for getting my feet wet.
dry cellary and yellow fruity aroma , smells good.(jokes about my feet now smelling good will be ignored). also slightly boozy. flavor is sweet as in sweet apple, then yellow fruits (dry versions of peach, pear, orange, pineapple all mixed up) yeast and what almost tastes like wheat. discreetly balanced by bitter hops (grapefruit peel).
[re-rate apr 2011. Non-gushing version, tasted somewhat better, quite complex. aroma anise spices, lkemongrass, faint nutty, flavor yellow fruits, anise, brown sugar, malts. 2,8,8,3,16]

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ ZBF & home. Spicey aroma with fruit and hops.
Sweet start, too sweer, some hop bitterness when the sweetness fades away. Hmm, it’s not so bad. No, it’s quite good actually. There’s a nice bitterness to it, proper carbonation. Grows on you during a single beer.
