3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Jerusalem. Exp date: 1/2014. Carbonation threatens to geyser out the top of the bottle from the moment the first molecules of air are let in through the bottlecap. It’s a scary experience just preparing to pry open the bottle. At least the aromas that escape the bottle while contemplating how not to make a mess are fruity and promising. Well, with quick action catastrophe is avoided. On to evaluating the beer. Pours an amber/apricot color, a little hazy, with a finger of foam that settles to a soapy film. Base of bottle is coated with yeast, and the bottle itself is lined with lacing from top to bottom. Visible carbonation in the glass is relaxed. Aroma is sour up front, very yeasty-moldy, followed by alcohol, vegetables, earthiness, and faint general fruitiness. Taste is fruity sweet-and-sour or tart up front -- mango, bread, spice -- and concludes with a fruity bitterness that has a protracted finish. Body is nice and full, thick texture, with rather soft carbonation. Nice lacing along the glass. Bottom line: a good example of a Belgian-style Tripel and, while not a phenomenal beer, it’s an enjoyable quality brew.

Bottle, thanks Eddan.
Hazy golden with a medium head. The aroma was a bit strange with something that was hard to describe. Also yeast, alcohol, fruit and some spices. Similar taste. Not at favorite.

@ Eddan: ganska trevlig, typisk belgisk, doft. Smaken den samma men ganska mycket sötare. Kryddor, jäst, koriander. Blir lite för söt.

29/10/2013 330ml bottle (thanks Ariel!). Dorata, lieveente torbida, schiuma media, mediamente persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, lieviti, zucchero di canna, speziatura leggera. In bocca è dolce, un po’ troppo sbilanciata e semplice, manca di complessità, alcol ben nascosto. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione media. Così così.

On-tap. Pours cloudy orange with a medium head. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Taste - sweet (a bit too much for me), alcohol and fruity flavors, spicy finish, missing some balance. Medium body.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy amber with a thin white head. Yeasty, faint bubblegum, floral aroma and a sweet, floral taste with yeasty bitterness and no hints of alcohol despite the high abv. Smooth texture, full body, soft carbonation and a long, sweet, peachy finish.
