3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy golden with a small, lacy head. Sweetish, caramely-malty aroma with a hint of diacetyl. Sweet honey-malty flavor with medium bitterness and a bit too high acidity. Medium-bodied, sticky, low-carbonated. A sweetish and sugary brew, yet the acidity pretty much ruins it.

Light amber coloured, little carbonation and a rather small white head. Malty and fruity aroma. Full palate. Finish is light bitter, again fruity with some malty and light alcoholic touches. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy copper colour with a white head. Interesting aroma with sweetness, and a sour gooseberry fruitiness. Taste has bread overlaid with sweetness and some ashy dryness. A lot happening, but on a curiously small scale. Doesn’t quite work for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap, Café Morshuis Albergen. Raspberry and citrus in the aroma. Bitter cookies and blackcurrant flavor with a firm flowery and earthy hopbitterness, lingering on in the aftertaste. Just hints of tartness and metal in the finish. Tasty beer, hardly a tripel, but with a distainct farmhouse character.
