3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bleekgeel, blond bier. Weinig schuim, maar toch levendig. Kruidig en gistig aroma, wat logisch is met de vele kruiden die erin zitten. Maakt het complex en interessant, maar niet perse ontzettend lekker. Wel een prima bier met een bitterdroge nasmaak.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spice ale since 2010 with the garlic that typifies Jessenhofke but also fresh herbs grown by Sanguisorba in Ranst, a well-known brewery supplier of herbs and spices. The herbs in question are salad burnet, hyssop, thyme, savory and myrte. Snow white, regular head, misty peach blonde colour. Complex ’herbalness’ in the nose as can be expected, difficult to distinguish one from the other even though I am familiar with their aromas, very flowery, some candi sugar, some fruits and, as in the other Jessenhofkes, no noticeable garlic. Sweetish spiciness in the mouth and, much to my surprise, there it is: a faint hint of garlic in the background. Light mouthfeel, sweetish caramel malt base, dry finish with the spices further developing alongside a herbal hoppiness. Interesting if you are into spice beers.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Aroma spicy with light citrus fruits, light bubblegum. Rounded and inviting. Taste is rather sweet, both spicy and malty. A bit weird, not working with me. Finish turns somewhat tart. I am conflicted about this one.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma is herbal with stewed vegetables. Flavour is unpleasantly herbal with disgustingly bitter, garlic-esque lingering aftertaste. Why?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours fairly bright - left the sediment in the bottle. Fairly effervescent, Aroma is of a fairly typical Belgian tripel - alcohol quite dominant, some hops coming through, a herb/spice note and a sweet lift at the end. Flavour is of a bitterish tripel, with some hints of complexity from the herbs and additives, but this is tantalisingly short of bringing bigger flavours to the party. It’s certainly lovely and drinkable - so if that’s what was being aimed for, then it’s a great success. But it would be a little more interesting to have some of those flavour components coming out a bit more.

Tripel with lots of weird herbs and spices. Nice, but considering they poured an entire garden in the beer, I expected more taste.

Hazy orangy golden. Grassy, malts, some yeast, alcohol. A hint of peach and some spicy and burnt notes too. Medium bodied, slightly thin mouthfeel and lots of alcoholpresence. Hmmm, I think the alcohol is too much, and I don’t care for the burnt notes, but otherwise a decent tripel sort of beer.
