3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, big beige head. Smells of grass, malts, yeast esters, quite classic tripel aromas. Medium sweet, malty, caramel, quite spicy. Medium bitter, grassy and hoppy. An ok tripel, not inventing the wheel with this one

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, BBE 9.10.2014, 9.7% ABV) Hazy dark golden with a smallish, but firm and lacy head. Syrupy-sweet, warming nose with grainy-caramely notes. Flavor is grainy-toffeeish with slight lime-fruity notes. Surprisingly dry flavor considering the aroma, yet without showing the alcohol. Quite full body, soft and creamy mouthfeel. Creamy-smooth tripel with hidden alcohol. Too bad this already feels too aged (totally lacks any freshness) when 1+ months to BBE. 4237
