3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11th December 2009
Hazy and somewhat dirty looking amber beer. Light yeasty nose. Fairly dry palate that is also a little crisp. Sweet aromatic malts - typically tripel. Subtle tones of orange and banana. More creamy malt and and minerally aniseed. Soft dry finish. Hangs together very well.

Draft at HopCat. The 223rd rating of this bad boy. Hazy pale yellow color, large bubble head. Aroma of lemon rind, straw, subtle acetone. Taste is malty but not overly sweet. True to the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at MBGF07. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Complex spicy fruit and yeasty aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a solid beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle) Large off-white head atop hazy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, banana, bubblegum/cane sugar, alcohol, light clove. Taste is sweet, banana liqueur, bubblegum, light sourness. Smooth medium-full body. Too boozy for a tripel, and misses the style’s dryness in the finish, but nonetheless a pleasant beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, sample many thanks to Phil_L for bringing this along. Gold to amber with white head. After drinking session bitters and milds in a British beer Fest, boy is this full on. Heavy spicy notes, masses of cloves and yes Mes, I did get almond somewhere in there. Tongue clearing alcohol, which quickly clear the nasal passages, like breathing fire. After looking for subtelties in beer, there is no point in looking here. A caveman of a beer.

Sample at the brewpub. Slightly hazy yellow-gold pour with a medium thin off-white head that disappears quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, banana and malt. Medium body with flavors of spicy yeast, bananas and sweet malt. The finish is sweetly spiced with a yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.
