3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rocky, white head solid resting over a cloudy, light orange body. Fresh grassy nose added a touch of yeast. Spicy and sweet taste containing herbs, fruity hops and brown sugar. Oily texture. Brings a kind of summer feeling (BBF, Oslo 10.04.2008).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A hazy golden yellow beer with a firm near-white head. Rather low aroma level, but still complex with accents of sweet citrus, tropical, spices, cookies and yeast. Taste is on the sweet side, malt-sweetness and sweet fruitiness. Well spiced with notes of alcohol. Dries up towards the end. Good body. Sweetish and light acidic finish. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a golden color with a huge fluffy lasting head. The aroma is light fruit. Taste filled with bitter fruit and spices that make this beer jump off the palate.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A quirky but very interesting tripel--great color, a bit of spiciness and fruitiness balanced with a touch of acidity. Not as strong as most tripels at only 7.5, but an immensely flavorful brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap, at ZBF 2006. Faintly hazy gold, good white head and moderate condition. Gently perfumed sweet maltiness in the nose, soft and muted in the mouth with some fruitiness and a touch of yeasty sweetness that becomes dry and chalky and dominant in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Zythos Beer festival, March 2007. Attractive bright golden colour with a generous white head. Firm, fruity and spicy aroma. Light estary fruit and subtle spice in the flavours. Touches of citrus and pineapple. Quite firm mouthfeel but rather more grainy, biscuity malt than I like in a tripel. Decent enough but nothing particularly outstanding.
