3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Garrold for this one. Gold with white head. There is a heavy, peachy fruitiness to this, some spicing, cinnamon came to mind, touch of Belgian teast. Doesn’t quite get to the Tripel astringency for me, but reasonable.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from archer road beer stop, sheffield. Hazy pale yellow with frothy white head. Aroma is all clove, banana and sweet spice. Sweet and spicy, not much contrast for balance, quite sickly after a half. Medium with oil and nice carbonation. Not very drinkable to be honest.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample from old notes. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, bread, yeast, citrus and banana, mild sweetness, dry finish, decent enough triple though nothing stands out, but not one of my favorite styles.

2006 Bottle Conditioned-Rating from 2-28-2010
Corked bottle-pours dark golden with a little off white foam-yeasty spicy nose with apples-it has a nice body to it-light with a touch of creaminess-spicy fruits in the flavor with a hint of clove and banana-it has an excellent candi sugar sweetness on the finish-the finish is actually the best part, some apples show up there too-as it opens, I get some peaches and a little cinnamon mixed in there....it aged well!
