2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
08/01 0.33 l fat brown bottle @Hopdevil, Zagreb. Murky golden body with medium sized and short living head. Weak, somewhat yeasty aroma, not bad, but pretty industrial. Flavor is also boring, damn simple, OK, there is some orange, banana, spicy yeast notes, but dull and so industrial it ruins an idea of a nice Belgian brew. Medium-long bitterish finish. OK for drinking, but one of the worst Tripels I’ve tried.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft – Brasserie Beck (DC) – Gold, fluffy white head. Complex aromas of musty cheese and barnyard funk are well layered over notes of lemony citrus, chardonnay, and hints of old oak. Tart lemon cheese and funk flavors balance on light vanilla wood notes. A soft fruity hop ending rounds this out very well. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry finish. Not sure what’s in those bottled versions, but I thought this draft version was fantastic…

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Swigs of Pa Jenner’s on Xmas evening. Aggressive peppery crushed coriander/ spruce nose. Chewily citrussy and stingingly alcoholic, with soap and softening wheaty afters. Faint haze. Raw ethanol bitterness. Unsubtle, peppery, overly alcoholic tripel without anything to really distinguish or recommend it.
