3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Cockney Pub, Aarhus. Pours a fairly clear golden orange with a bigm frothy white head. Aroma is sweet, light ginger, oranges, biscuits and grassy hops. Super soft and chewy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, vinious, light spicy, and a terrific amount of sweet toffee caramel. A touch of grassy and flowery hops at the end. As Mes writes, this is a great mix between a Tripel and an ESA.

A Mes rate: 50cl bottle at Pigs Ear.
Lovely golden amber colour with a thin but solid white head. Nice Belgian style spicy yeast in the aroma with some grassy hops underneath. Quite sweet but surprisingly mellow given the alcohol content. Very similar to a Belgian tripel in the flavour but itís top class. Light sweetness and citric notes really make it. Almost chewy mouthfeel. Good stuff all round. Another cracker from Durham.
