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 didnít 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, Iím 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. Iíll try this again, but donít know when. I just hope that this wasnít 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 isnít present.

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

On tap at Brouwerís, Seattle. Didnít get much more than a sip of this one, but I liked it. Flavor had Belgian yeast, with some nice fruity sweetness to it. Iíd try it again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle that Sim returned from Belgium with. Good tripel like aroma. Lots of hops with a little cream and spice plus some delicate lemon and vanilla. But it is just too mellow for me. A hazy pils like body but topped with a glorious head which I was convinced would never last when I poured it. 10 minutes later it has hardly budged at all. Flavour almost perfectly echoes the nose but it is just let down by a creeping metalic finish. Mouth feel is ok. In fact its all ok... but nothing more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Little hazy golden-yellow coloured with some carbonation and an average white head. Spicy sweet-yeasty aroma, with some fruity-alcoholic touches. Full body. Nice finish, little bitter with a more dry ending.
