3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy beige with a big, rocky head. The aroma is flowery, almost to the point of being perfumey, with light yuzu and phenolic, spicy yeast character. Sweetish up front but then yeastiness and dryness start to take over. Nice brew, and the assertive hopping keeps the sweetish elements of the tripel from overwhelming..

A golden amber ale with a thin white head. A superb aroma of floral orangey hops, funky and sweaty, intense chamomille. In mouth, a rather stiking IPA with herbal pinhey hops, warming alcohol, sweaty blood orange, quite challenging. Rich and warming. On tap at Mondiale de la Bière 2010.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Mostly-clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The nose furnishes tropical fruit, apricot, and musky, peppery notes. Medium-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is a merger of hopped-up bitterness, and biscuit and honey sweetness. Crisp, bittersweet finish... the bitterness lingers a good while.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Cask Days 2013. Big bright nose and a lot of intense tropical fruit aroma. A bit chewy with some lovely sweet pale malt. A bit sweet bit the hoppiness does cut it. Lean pale malt and a nice spicy yeast Fresh and a bit fruity. Pretty lovely brew.
Pale amber. Spicy/ fruity hop nose. A bit of sweet pepper and some earthiness. A little bit of fruit. Very bitter for the style. Soft spice. Peppery. Decent if unusual. A sort of lingering mintiness. I like it.
