3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled@PBF2012. Hazy yellow colour, small head. Aroma is citrus, farmyard, some sour wood as well as some spices and yeast. Flavour is being rather similar with some mild notes of alcohol as well. A bit thin as for the palate, but otherwise a good take on a tripel.

Bottled 750ml (PBF, bought from NYC)
Hszy yellow color, small white head, Farmhouse, barnyard aroma, citrus too. Light to medium bodied. Lots of carbonation. Some barnyard in the flavot too, not too overpowering. Citrus, coriander(?), white pepper, cat piss hops. Quite interesting "tripel". Not sure I could drink in big quantities. Duvel meets farmhouse.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours clear yellow with the typical tripel big frothy white head. Aroma light fruits, citrus and acidity. Taste light fruits with Sweet Tarts, Belgian yeast and a little funkiness creeping in. Palate a little syrupy but very pleasant, nice mouth tingle and carbonation. Finish clean, very slight hops. Alcohol disguised.
Looks like a wide range of opinions on this one but I liked it, a very tasty tripel.
