3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bitter Virtue. Interesting blend of spice, herbs, malt sugar and earthiness on the nose. Not as effervescent as some belgian beers. Sweetish taste well balanced by slight tangy sourness nad light spicy bitterness. Quite interesting but not really well integrated with different flavours flying round all over the place.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fairly clear yellow beer with a large, frothy white head. Nose has mildly sour funky notes with citrus, barnyard and pomegranate. Taste is quite dry with a nice ever so mild sourness that leads to a softly bitter finish. Lively carbonation and quite light palate with very well hidden alcohol. Excellently balanxed easy drinking beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle @ Stadin panimobaari, Helsinki. Pours clear golden yellow (sedimentary yeast not mixed in) with a white head. The aroma is dominated by sweetish floral notes and hints of acidity. Somewhat sour flavour with floral/fruity esters. The finish is quite sweet. Medium carbonation. A fine example on excellent beer brewed without hops.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A really special beer brewed without hops. Tastes like a spicier than usual tripel. Tried with Jess at Avoli on our anniversary in 2016.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear golden body with a small, frothy, off-white, short-lived head that doesn’t leave much lacing. Rather strong aroma of generic fruit, pale malt and some spices. Moderate flavour of Belgian yeast, generic fruits and spices. Light sweet and moderate bitter taste. Mid-bodied, dry and moderate carbonation. An ok beer, but I had expected something more special, with more emphasis on the spices.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, herbs, toast, earth, some coriander. Taste of earth, pepper, bitter herbs, moreso than a standard hopped saison. Reminded me of an absinthe.

Bottle at the Aaahhh...Øl!!! Julebord 2015. Hazy light orange body, fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy, crisp malt, mild honey notes. Taste is citric with notes of hay, sweet fruits, grapes. Quite a rich mix which works out pretty good. Pleasant belgian yeast aftertaste. Nice.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled May 28th 2015.
Pretty big foamer, 2 fingers with a slow and careful pour. Shrinks slowly and leaves a lot of lacing behind. The beer itself is clear, so far, gold colour.
Smells spicy with some cloves and Coriander, earthy, peculiar bitterness.
Coriander and clove to start. Bitterness is on the spicy side with an overall earthy character and it is yeasty. Not tart but close. It is 8% abv and I do get some warming but no sign in the taste.
Medium body with zesty carbonation that tickles my throat.
Saying that this is yummy wouldn’t be out of order. It is a Dupont beer after all.
