3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Swing top bottle 33cl. Cloudy pale amber color, one finger fluffy off-white head, recedes slowly, good lacing; hoppy nose, lemon peel, yeast, basement, herbal hops, coriander; taste moderate bittersweet, citrus/acidic notes; full body, oily texture, average carbonation, lingering dry hoppy bitter finish, herbal notes (juniper, coriander), bit dusty; overall not like a real tripel but more a strong ale. PS Label says Constantinus Kruisheren Herfstbock but it was clear from the first pour and sniff that this was the Augustinus...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy orangy color, small off-white head. Aroma is malts, some hops surprisingly, and even more surprisingly some fruityness. Decent body and carbonation. Way better than expected anyway.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, courtesy of KimJohansen. An almost clear beer, golden in color, and with a nice, off-white finger-thick head. Cellarish nose with plums and sugar. Sweet, slightly malty flavor with a little caramel. Quite fruity. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated, but with a papery feeling. A quite decent beer, but with a slighlty unpleasant mouthfeel. 091024

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.
Serious gusher (but I was fast!). Pours hazy orange, lots of bubbles. Giant, staying, frothy, off-white head. 2-3 cm above the rim of my glass. Aroma is mildly fruity, oranges, banana, green apple. Some yeasty notes and light alcohol. High, prickly carbonation, fair and kinda dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, light malty, some cucumber, grassy, oranges and light vinious. Apricot and fair sweetness. Good, but the cucumber notes are a bit funny.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A slightly hazy golden beer with a huge bubbly off-white head. The aroma has notes of straw, fruit, and a bit of malt. The flavor is very sweet with notes fruit - peaches and oranges, as well as notes malt, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.
