4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle into signature glass. Presents deep amber with a finely bubbled just off white head that laces nicely. Aroma is yeasty (earthy, leafy) and malty (toasty subdued honey) with fruity hops (oranges mainly), Belgian candy sugar and alcohol. The palate is smooth and creamy with a fullish body and a perfect balance of bittersweet malt and fruit. Finishes long and dry with an alcoholic warmth. Delicious mouthfeel. One of the best Belgian Abbey Tripels.

Amber orange pour with short lasting white foam. Some lacing. Aroma mostly caramel with citrus/grass. Caramel sweetness with light bitterness. A soapy/oily mouthfeel and a dry finish. A bit of alcohol heat with slight astringency. Kind of a pricy beer - expected a bit more somehow for this specialty 10% ABV Belgian.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
colore bellissimo,rosso/ambrato carico con schiuma molto persistente.
al naso il fruttato del lievito ti aggredisce ma risulta molto piacevole.l’alcool è piuttosto presente nell’aroma.
corpo intenso,gusto molto deciso,l’alcool è forse un pò troppo pronunciato,anche nel finale dolce l’alcool si sente molto,luppolo poco presente,carbonazione ottimale.
birra sicuramente buona ma la pecca dell’alcool mi spinge a dare un voto non troppo elevato.resta sicuramente una ottima birra,ma la preferirei leggermente meno alcolica..sembra quasi aggiunto a crudo!
