2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle. heavily hazed golden wheat body, small white head, yeast does not come out of suspension. might guess about some sour mash wheat and malt here, there’s a lot of minerals / salted lemon / dish soap / tart citrus acid in the nose, but there’s also some coriander / ginger / peppercorn notes that are affecting it. syrupy, sweet, Belgian-style golden ale, that’s about what it is. but it becomes terribly sweet and juicy - making me salivate and gleek - and the oily and syrupy sugar just sits permanently in the mouth. dang. have to say the nose had promise but the flavor and texture - goopy, syrupy, cloying - ruin it for me.

Can from Cornelius. Hazy pale golden body with a medium white head. Very lively carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of salted lemon, vine tomatoes and apricot. Flavour of tangy orange, yeast and white bread. Medium body with a smooth, frothy texture. Light fizz. Tastes like a less zingy version of Great Divide’s Colette.

Pours hazy yellow with low white head. Aroma of spices, herbs, wheat, honey, funk. Taste is sweet, mild honey and wheat, maybe a bit one-dimensional. Light to medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation. Slightly boozy finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Brewdog mail order. Pours hazy orange, tight white head. Aroma of yeast, more yeast, oranges. Nice mouthfeel. A decent ale but for the abv I was expecting more of a hit and complexity. Not really a proper full strength low countries ale. Pity, it has promise but doesn’t hit the high spots.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Brewdog Online Shop, shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours hazy yellow with a thin, lingering white head. Aromas are bready, some orange peel, light spice, faint cooked banana. Taste is more of the same. Lacking something to take it to that next level, but pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - cloudy golden orange with a decent fluffy head. Some of the head hangs around.
Nose - dried orange peel, loads of estery notes.
Taste - rich candied orange and lemon with some spice. There’s a bread base.
Palate - medium bodied with with a tangy texture and a long and fairly dry tangy finish. I’d like it slightly more tangy on the finish though.
Overall - pretty good tripel, but would like a tangier finish.

Sample at the Barrel Bar. It’s a cloudy gold and possesses a huge coriander and orange peel aroma. Fairly full bodied and rich with a sweet finish. Nice classic style Belgian beer, an easy drinking Tripel.
