3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tripel commissioned by Pado in Tielt. Cream white head, foggy peach blonde robe. Bready and fruity aroma, apple and dried apricot, soft maltiness, relatively thin mouthfeel, flowery hoppy finish. Seeing the other ratings here, I suspect it has changed - and apparently improved - since the beginning, when the spelling was still Halle Schelle, in two words. Time for a re-rate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (from beerplanet.eu). Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized white creamy head that leaves some lace. Aroma is fruity, spicy, rathery malty as well as slightly yeasty notes. Flavour is fruity, spicy, a bit yeasty and also has some slight notes of alcohol and also some strange vegetablylike notes. Except for the slight vegetably notes this was a rather pleasant brew.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet, Brussels.
Pours muddy pale yellow with a firm, frothy, white head. Aroma is heavy white pepper, sweet malts, fair grassiness. Meidum, prickly carbonation, fine light oily mouthfeel. Flavour has light tartness, lots of pepper, light ginger touch. There is some milkiness to the tartness that makes me think that it is not intended. Lots of peppery bitterness at the end though.
