4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Tesco. Beautiful dark golden colour with a perfect white head. Aroma is both malt and flowery hop with a hint of peach. Flavour mixes sweetness with a slight hint of the sourness of a wheat beer. Hints of apple in the satisfyingly dry finish. Excellent beer that just shades their Dubbel, though as the nights draw in, I’ll probably reverse that.

33 cl. Clear, orange-gold with an eighth-inch of persistent head. Aroma of white wine, apples and corn sugar. Flavor of apples and grapes soaked in white wine with a touch of honey. Light body is dry on the finish and a little too fizzy for me.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 Medium amber beer with small diminishing head. Pleasant aroma and somewhat watery initial taste of fruits and malt. Finish is nice. Needs more alcohol. Quite cheap, so is now my beer of choice to be stocked up with.

11.2 oz bottle purchased at some store on Rt 18 in the Brunswicks and drank at the Giants Thursday night opening game against the Redskins. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a large bubbly fomay white head. Aroma was fruity, lots of lemon, sour and grainy. Flavor followed suit and was dominated by a sour lemon, lemon rind flavor. I wasn’t impressed with this at all but one of my nonbeergeek buddies who tried it really liked it, go figure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Reading] I mus admit, I only chose this beer bedause Sainsbury’s were selling it off at half price - just 73p. Pours a mid-gold with a moderate, lasting head, which left lots of lacing on the glass. Smells pleasantly of sweet malt and honey. Prickly carbonation. Tastes initially of malt, with some pineapple and lemon. Some grass comes through, followed disconcertingly by some honey roast ham, which reminded me of Leffe Blond. More grass and malt in the aftertaste, a very slight bitterness and a chalky mouthfeel. Overall impression is a rather light, but refreshing and enjoyable beer. If you like Leffe Blonde, you’ll probably enjoy this even more; in fact, I’m not sure why this is classed on here as an Abbey Tripel when the very similar Leffe Blonde is classed as a Belgian Ale...?
