3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy pale gold, with a nice two finger head slow slowly fades to a thick cap, and leaves thick sheets of lacing.
Smell; citrus, hay, cloves, and just a bit of alcohol.
Taste; cloves and spices, a little lemony citrus, followed by that barnyard hay, and finishing with a bit of an alcohol bite. Mouthfeel is nice and thick, but gets a bit of a hit due to a little to much carbonation for my liking. Wouldn’t mind having more of these if they were available in my area.

Probably a little sweeter and syrupy than some would expect from a tripel, but it does tatse good. Packs a wallop, so be careful.

I’m disapointed. People often refer to this as the best beer in the world. Not anyone from ratebeer mind you, but alot of people say it’s the best, and I think they are wrong. Pours a coludy pale sandy yellow, thin head, lightly carbonated. It’s very silky in the mouth. Aroma, taste and aftertaste are COMPLETLY dominated by wheaty bubblegum, so strong I cant taste any depth. It is very warming, but I cant say I like it. Cheers

Nothing special here. Guy at the beer shop stated it was the best beer in the world, but to each their own. Hazy in colour, with tastes of ginger. Bitter/sour finish. Cool ceramic bottle though.

Tap at Monks. Poured cloudy golden with a foamy white head. Smell had sour apple, banana and wheat plus some clove. Nice sour apple and banana combination in the taste. Pretty solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle reading 8.5%. quite pale and carbonated out of the (faux?) ceramic bottle. light fruity/estery and yeast aroma, with only a faint wheaty spicy scent hidden. has a somewhat overly pale body, and too much sweet white-fleshed fruit flavors to offer much balance. a relatively easy drink considering the high alcohol content, but not a particularly pleasant one.
