2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was OK. Poured a dark yellow, clear, nicely carbonated. Head was pretty but disappeared. Aroma was very faint. Flavor was of sweet malt and mouth feel was good. After taste was nice. An Average Tripel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. The head was off white and dissipated quickly to a thin film. Smelled of pineapple, honey, pale malt, and a splash of alcohol. Medium bodied. Slightly sweet up front with delicate bitterness at the end. Subdued pineapple, graham cracker, and noble hop flavors.

Bottle @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam.
Solid Belgian style trippel. Bit too much on the sweet side and strong taste of alcohol, pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (7 oz./207ml). Vintage 2008. From a discounted 8-pack of four Flying Dog high-gravity beers. Super sweet aroma, honey and sugar. Honey color, cloudy, almost no head. Dull, flat sweetness, mid palate is more or less balanced. Goes nowhere. Mild aftertaste. Medium body. Well, it is reminiscent of a tripel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, aged 3.5yrs, 355ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Gold with white head. Surprisingly, quite a gentle beer, smooth, honeyed sweetness, a touch of spiciness, fully developed. A pretty decent copy of an Abbey Tripel which is not easy from outside, the yeast does seem to be doing the job. Decent.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; hazy orange with small pale yellow head; aroma-fruits, peaches, yeast, sweet, toffee, alcohol; taste-medium sweetness, lightly bitter, full body, sticky, average carbonation, long finish. Not sure this beer is cohesive. It’s a little hard to follow with the mouth feel being more pleasant than the swallow.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours clear golden with a small white head. Quite still in the glass. The aroma is rather sweet with notes of honey, light marzipan, flowers, clove, sugar and mild spicy and grassy hops. Some canned fruitiness in the background. The flavour is near medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of yeast, dough, bread, flowers, clove, honey and light marzipan alongside some grassy and spicy hops. A subtle fruitiness of apricots in the background. The mouthfeel is clean and light syrupy with a light numbing finish. Medium bodied. Way too sterile to be a good Tripel in my book.
