3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Dark golden yellow, quite hazy, with an average, creamy and persistent white head. Extremely floral and perfumy nose, slightly spicy (especially lavander and chamomile), a hint of bitter orange peel. Definitely different from a typical Tripel aroma, it reminds me of some Partizan beers from the grisette series. Way too lively, but the taste follow suite. Bitter, slightly tart, again very floral and aromatic. No alchool taste at all, but the drinkability is rather poor. Fizzy carbonation, light body, slightly oily texture. Probably need to revisit as this is an old bottle, but what I’m drinking is far from impressive.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a full white head cover, swirls of lace. Nice aroma of caramel malt. Taste is bracing caramel malt that grows nicely in the palate, then becomes only slightly bitter in the finish. A solid offering from Gouden Carolus.
