Bottle. Hazy copper color with an off-white head. A sweet candy, caramel, apple, brown sugar, coating flavor that is soft and zesty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Overall disappointed, but still a decent brew. Certainly not the best tripel I've ever had...The nose was best part for me: substantial amount of spices (corriander), pine needles and yeast laced with alcohol. Cool hazy orange color and a foamy lacey head. Some candied sugar, some vanilla tone, maybe oranges and apricots too in the taste. No real hop character or bitterness to speak of. Cardboardy aftertaste. Quick profile and thinish with a creamy mouth feel. Drinkable for sure, but weak for a tripel.

Apricot and light sour malt mixture nose. Orange color, little foamy head. Liveley carbonation. Taste grape, apricots, vanilla. Pricks in the mouth. Short grape finish, also honey in the end. Ok.

Hazy golden coloured. Fruity aroma. Notes of yeast. Almost reminds me of a Hefe. Very fruity flavour and yeasty as well. Slightly bitter in the aftertaste. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little too sweet and gassy, but a very good triple. You taste the alcohol, but no burn for a 9%er. Looks right in the glass. Head does not last. Carbonation makes it difficult to drink quickly. This is a very sweet ale.

Clear golden in color. large fluffy head dissipated quickly. Aroma is very pleasant with some sweet and spicy notes. Taste is VERY sweet and syrupy, I couldn’t drink much of this beer. Overall it’s not bad but I’ll probably pass on this in the future and go for a more "balanced" tripel.
