3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[5821-20130917] Tap. Sweetened grains aroma hints at a sugary malt base. Slightly hazy, dark orange red body with no lasting head. Bitter heavy donut yeast flavour has a boozy lemon undertone. Medium-full body. Tasty but a little too chewy for me. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at ’Indie Alehouse Homebrewers Tap Takeover’. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a spare lasting white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and sweet along with candi sugar, vanilla, and a hint of spice -- there’s lots there and it smells really nice. Flavour is sweet but it is a Tripel: Yeasty, fruity and sugary sticky along with vanilla and some alcohol. Dry finish. Alcohol is relatively well hidden. Medium bodied. A lovely Tripel!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at brewpub, Sept 17 2013) Pours a slightly hazed deep orange colour with a small, fine white head - dark for a tripel. Smells like, well...a vanilla donut! Flavour follows, sweet up front, vanilla, candy sugar, fills in with a bit of yeasty doughy character, light hopping on the back for bitterness, no real boozy character. Medium-full body, very soft carbonation. This was quite a fun beer, and tasty too, so compliments to the brewer. I just don’t think I could survive much more than a sampler.
