2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2005 A bit dark for a tripel. Sweet taste, a little sour. Lots of carbonation. Taste isn’t great. Perhaps the worst tripel I’ve tasted.
Fruity and a little yeasty nose. Clear, golden coloured with a huge, white head. Taste is too sweet, bit hoppy, fruity. alcohol clearly present. Bit cheap brew.

Hazy amber with a large head. Head reduces to a rocky cover. Musty yeast aroma. Honey and orange flavors. Finishes a bit sour.

Has a large head, as do most of the Belgian Tripples. Sweeter taste, but not overpowering. Alcohol taste not overpowering either. Almost as good as Duvel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange/golden, somewhat hazy colour. Huge head, doesn’t stay too long, though. Yeasty aroma. Somewhat sweet palate. Spicy flavour with faint notes of peat or is it wood? The alcohol lurks in the background but never gets too dominant. I could drink this again!

aroma blew me away right after I cracked the bottle, smooth with a surprising hop bite but not as complex as I expected. Not worth the twenty bucks for a 6 that it costs here, thank god for singles!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very blond with a big head. The alcohol is obvious. There is a medecine taste and a bitter and not so nice aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale gold clear with small fading white head. Aroma is faint fruity with some aromatic sweet cough medicine and some light yeast as well. Medium bodied with decent carbonation and some sour components but flavour is overall somewhat disappointingly light although alcohol is still somehow well masked. Overall I prefer the Optimo Bruno.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrusaroma, a bit ’soapy’. Hopbitter taste, with some citrus and sweetness. Not a very complex beer, but certainly a nice tripel.
