4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark orange color with small light beige head. Hazy appearance. Smells fruity, mostly banana. Carbonation is a bit higher then expected for a beer of this style. Taste is a combination of sweet and bitter, some fruity notes, caramel, spices. Strong presence of alcohol in the finish.
Overall - very good if you love this style, although it is a bit pricey... Personally, I found Dubbel to be more to my liking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. BB 10.2016. Pours a beautiful, slightly reddish amber with an off-white head that only retains around the edge of the glass, then disappears. The aroma is initially rather faint, must be because it’s rather cool. Then after some time: yeasty, somewhat spicy, accompanied by hints of different yellow and dark fruits, and the grassy, minty, even floral Perle hops in the background. Tastes pretty round, the starting fruity sweetness quickly transforms to caramel, and then dry, hoppy bitterness. Pleasantly soft mouthfeel, paired with the stimulating bubbling. Overall a very nice Belgian.
