3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep goldish orange with a tiny white head. First impression of the nose is very Belgian, like Westmalle Tripel or Duvel Triple Hop. Good yeast character with some mango and pineapple present. Boozy on the nose as well. Alcohol stands out pretty clearly on the palate. Quite a lot of bitterness that is noticeable on the finish. A big, bold beer with a high ABV that doesn’t necessarily come together perfectly.

Thanks to willisread for sharing the bottle!
Poured into a taster showing translucent dark honey and amber tones with a thin ring of clean white foam.
The nose shows deep sweet nose close to a Belgian ale.
The palate is well carbonated and full bodied. Flavors of subtle malts and barely perceivable hints of mango and pineapple but a strong biting IPA bitterness that reaches its apex on the finish. A lot of finish on the linger but good hints of mango also.

Bottle from Bottle Baron. Hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of melon rind, lime chutney and peppery earth. Flavour of honey, menthol, alcohol burn and lime sweets. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Intensely bitter, which I usually like, however I found this quite heavy going.
