2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 8%. Sour/citric aroma. Almost clear yellow colour. Very big, stable white head. Citric cider flavour. Fruity but not sweet. Quite dry finish, a bit like aspartam. Not what I expect from a tripel, this is more like cider IMO.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Light goldden coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Light yeast, light spice and light fruits in the aroma. Flavour is spiced and fruity. Again spices are notable. A bit bland. Light bodied. Is quite acidic and dry in the end. Quite refreshing but a bit too bland for my likings.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared at the Hopduvel in Zagreb with ozujsko.
At first it poured a clear pale yellow/golden colour with extremely lively carbonation, fizzy even, with a beautiful, thick, creamy white big head that went away slowly and was the only thing about it that didn’t look like a fizzy North American macro. On the second pour, the yeast came in, and it turned out to be a completely opaque yellow. Smells... like a kriek (!?!?!?). Yeast (brett, I’m positive), some fruitiness and some spit (yes, spit). Taste... this is definitely infected. Gueuze like sour yeasty taste, hints of white wine, tahini halva aftertaste. Tastes like a below average gueuze, nothing like a tripel. The second, yeasty pour tamed the sourness a bit, but it was still present. I’ll try this again, but don’t know when. I just hope that this wasn’t what it was intended to be.

Orange, unclear beer. White head, not lasting. Sour aroma, oak, wood. Flavor has the same sourness, and some clear sweetness too. The 8% abv isn’t present.

Citrussy and malty triple, but much lighter than various other tripels. Still very decent.

On tap at Brouwer’s, Seattle. Didn’t get much more than a sip of this one, but I liked it. Flavor had Belgian yeast, with some nice fruity sweetness to it. I’d try it again.
