Extraordinary banana-bubblegum nose.
Lasting head with pretty lacing. Very subtle pepper bitterness dominated by fruits. Plenty of malt with modest malty aftertaste.
Had this before at the bar and wasn’t expecting it to be so good at closer inspection, but this is damn tasty.

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.
