4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.75L bottle. Pours clear golden with a rocky white head that dissipates quickly. Really potent, sweet aromas: vanilla, bubblegum, floral, anice. Flavor is mild sweet and complex. Starts with cereal grain, and then transitions to dough, licorice, ginger flavors. Long, mild, yeasty bitterness and warming alcohol in the linger. Light body with a slick mouthfeel and very active carbonation. Overall, really nice beer, with lots of aromatic character and complex flavor profile.

Bottle, 750. A clear golden beer with a big foamy white head. It has a floral aroma with citrics (especially lemon), yeast and alcohol. Taste is bitter with medium to strong carbonation and some astringency. Sweet aftertaste that reminds somewhat of peach. There is some overly sweet character at the end, but overall a good beer.

Flaske 75 cl, smagt hos Borup, for det første ligge man mærke til den super lækre aroma af forskellige frugt nuancer, udover det har den en dejlig konsistens, smagen er blandet, den smager rigtig godt, men er samtidig også rimelig sprittet.

750mL corked bottle 2013 vintage
Hazy orange gold beer, holds a big thick white foam.
Good nose to it! Apricot, apple & pear esters, pepper, and light toasty malt goodness.
Has a creamy texture to it, somewhat rich with good carbonation.
Lots of apricot esters on the body - properly ripe, almost dried, balanced by notes of pomme fruits, orange/mango juice & peppery spice, with a raw sugar & light biscuity malt sweetness to boot. Some warmth on the finish, low bitterness on a long dry finish.
Tremendously good Tripel.
