4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour very slowly, thick pillowy white head that stays and leaves a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet malty nose. Starts sweet, smooth, no alcohol, finish is very mellow. It would be better to have a 500ml bottle of this. Pricey, $4.89 for a 330ml bottle from Tulley’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Sweet malt and apple aroma - hint of the alcohol content. Orangish tan color with small head. Sweet orange and apple flavor up front with pepper and chocolate notes ending with a fairly strong alcohol and hops finish. Alcohol content is not as well hidden as the higher quality abts but still a fairly nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle, bbe June 08. Amber with an orange hue and a slight haze, weak sparkling. Frothy off-white head, not of a bad size for such a strong beer. Sweet aroma of molasses mixed with a flowery, perfumed one of hops, with a resinlike touch. Sweet, gently fruity taste with alcohol and a rather long dry, bitter and lightly peppery, even peaty finish. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation and moderately astringent alcoholic finish. A solid brew, sadly alcohol is too pronounced. There’re better barley wines out there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden body with plentiful carbonation yet a short-lived fizzy head, this has an aroma of alcohol, sweet malt, yeast, and a dribbling of juicy sweet cherries and plums. The mouthfeel is alive with bubbles and somewhat oily. The flavor mirrors the aroma, the malt tasting more toffee-ish and the alcohol coming on strong in the finish. Nor bad, but not worth searching for.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Label says Tripel Abt which confused me for a bit. Orangey gold colour, with thinnish white head. Nice hop and caramel, typical tripel nose. Slightly yeasty, bit too much carbonation then good hop tang. Extremely drying finish. But overall a nice tripel
