Tripel molto classica ma sostanzialmente il tocco artigianale gli dona qualche spunto in più, mi garba l’aroma deciso...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours rusty-golden with a moderate foamy white head and lingering lacing. Nose is standard tripel, with yeast, bright fruitiness, a little bitter hops, and a touch of alcohol and coriander. Flavor is pretty much the same, with a slight burned quality. Finish is quick and a little sticky. Pretty much an average example of the style.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden colored. Ok head but should hold a bit longer. Yeast, fruity, hops. Expected more after smelling. Not totally balanced, sweet fruitness and the bitter hops are not complete fixing. Bitter earthy, light citrussy hops at the end.

Pours a hazy orange colour with a large, thick, creamy head which lasts long. Aroma of citrus, flowers and some yeast. Flavour of caramel, grapefruit, mild grass and lovely sweet fruitiness. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Refreshing and highly drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Got one of the later pours out of the bottle, so it was a bit yeasty. Slightly hazed golden orange color with a finger of white head.
S: On the sweet side with a lot of sugar notes and some pale malts. Notes of light fruits such as apples and pears, with hints of banana. Sweet orange and orange peel are there as well. As it warms up, a stronger and stronger caramel smell comes through.
T: Caramel all the way through with still quite a lot of candi sugar and pale malts. Banana esters increase with intensity as the beer warms up. Good fruit notes of apple and orange, as well as some orange peel.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
O: A solid tripel. While it is sweet, it’s not cloyingly so.
