3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A blonde coloured beer with a nice large white head and good lacing. The aroma is spicy, peppery and yeasty together with some yeasty fruit. The spicy hops and yeastiness continue into the taste together with a little lemon citricity. It’s alittle too thin for my liking but still quite decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 cl bottle. Cloudy yellow gold body with a small fluffy head that dissipated quickly. Very nice aroma of pineapple, orange and grapefruit. Pleasant light fruity flavor with orange, pineapple, some honeydew melon, just the right touch of sweetness. The alcohol presence is also quite apparent. Rich body and silky mouthfeel with mild carbonatoin. A nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a wispy off-white head. Sparkling body. Aroma of sweet yeasty esters, notes of honey, apple, white wine, orange peel, and coriander. A bit too sweet with unusual esters on the nose. Taste is sweet and sticky, with esters, phenols, and high alcohols leading the way. Notes of cloves, spicy alcohol, bubble gum, ending with a long phenolic note. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly sticky with aggressive, lively carbonation. I knew I wasn’t going to love this beer as soon as I smelled it. Granted, it’s not bad by any means, but in my opinion, tripels are one of the hardest styles to flawlessly execute. Not bad, but not great.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 33cl. Hazy yellow almost orange colour with a medium and disappointing white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma is sweet and fuity with a few spicy notes. Very smooth and effervescent. Flavour is slightly yeasty and malty with a pronounced sweetness. In fact, sometimes the sweetness is a little too much. Nevertheless, a very good Triple.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet upon full warming, yet still fairly clean. A bit of herbality cuts through the sugars. Some mushroomy woodiness, a little like what I get from aged Allagash Triple. Fair body and holds together well, if too sweet...The aroma is nicely spicy with pepper and pineish components. I haven’t seen this in 12 oz. lately - is this a new batch?
