3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pure straw color with a rocky white head. Luscious tropical fruit - pineapple, kiwi - aroma, blended with a lactic overtone. Thick and rich mouthfilling sweet fruity and carmel flavors. A little spice in the finish and a lingering bitterness. Not a traditional belgian, very west-coasty, ie hops!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery. Large tulip glass. Attractive looking beer with orange and copper emphasis. Full finger head with quick dissipation. Funky aroma with Belgian yeast taking over. Some banana and coriander/spices. Taste is also funky with an almost sour feeling. Good spice and effervescence. There is also fruit and yeast presence. Drinkable and good but it falls short of the Belgian greats. Even falls short of better American tripels.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer is bought in may 2014 and has matured in my beercellar for a year.
Nice orange colored beer with a small, creamy, beige-white head. The beer is a little bit hazy. I really like that color!
Nose: Belgian yeast, fruit, pear, apple, hay, honey, spices and marzipan.
Taste: Wow! Very much sweet fruit, honey, caramel malt, banana, grass, bread, belgian yeast and citrus.
Body: Full body with medium carbonation. A complex body with a rich structure. Chewy beer! It is sweet and sour in a fantastic combination!
I didn’t try this when it was fresh but I can’t belive it could be any better than this. One year in the beercellar has matured the beer to almost perfection!
