3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden, hazy, modest white head. Peppery, orange peels, seldery salt gives it a very special nose. Taste is spciy herbal, sparking, CO2 and ends rater quickly. Tad bitter, peppery (with knowing I can taste the mustard, otherwise would not have discovered it.). Very special beer, very nice try, complex, very adventurous, technical correct beer, nothing off. Good for a try.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl Bottle from De Hopduvel, Gent. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of fenugreek, soft floral notes, some sweet alcohol. Flavour is also quite spicy from the fenugreek, bit it’s not a refreshing spice, making this clash with the nice citrussy and floral tripel flavours. Medium bodied. Fenugreek and mustard are two things I associate with cheese, not beer. Nice experiment, but never again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Brugs Beerfestival. Clear blond coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small white head. Spicy herby light hoppy hinted aroma. Medium palate. Finish is quite unique. Very spciy (stated mustardseeds and fenegriek) with a light herby hoppy hint. Unique strong flavours. Not sure whether I completely like this one but definetly outstanding.

This beer is not balanced but anyway very interesting because of the sharp taste.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great spicy beer with remarkable walnut flavours.
Fenugreek and mustard seeds were used. A great tasting full-body beer with a robust 9 vol% of alcohol.
Great long lasting hoppy/spicy finish too.
Perfect caronated, perfect head retention.
Hops and sweetness give it that sensational counter balance.
Yes, whole heartily recommended. and a sure next try at Brugs Beerrtje !!
