2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap - another one-dimensional, overly sweet, overly alcoholic take on a Belgian tripel/golden strong - strong honey, moderate lemon, light pepper, moderate floral notes, a touch of moneral - other than that and a lot of apparent alcohol, not a ton happening - disappointing from this brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 bottle that pours a lite straw colored pale yellow. A lite malt aroma mixed with some citrus and a little honey in the background. Sweet flavors of malts and lemon. Dry finish even a little astringent. Not my idea of a Strong Belgian Ale, more Saison like.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Goblet at Cheeky Monk. Pours gold with good lacing. Very estery nose, but not over the top. Notes of bubblegum, peppers, citrus and a little alcohol. Palate is robust and goes with the sugars well. It’s got a sweet kick to it, but dries out rapidly with spiced, peppery flavors. It’s a warming beer with noticeable alcoholic presence, but not in a negative way. Tasty, powerful take on a Belgian beer.
