3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. Looking nice in the glass, with a hazy, orange body and an off-white head. There was a lovely spiced aroma, with malt and some hops blending nicely in. Quite spiced for a tripel I think, but lovely. The spices weren’t that evident in the mouth, which also was nice, but more on the malty side, with pale malt and a fruity touch. Some hops giving bitterness as well. Effervescent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a lasting, spiced and quite bitter finish. Yummy! (080410)

330 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden body with a big white head. Aroma is fruity, yeast, a bit spicy and quite sweet. Flavor is sweet, malty, a bit spicy, some hops and hints of alcohol. Refreshing even as it is quite sweet, well made.

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.

On tap at ZBF 08. Fairly standard tripel, good white stone fruit flavours. Nice fruit overall, decent hop on finish and I kinda liked it.
