   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
TBone (12991) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2008
Bottled (BB 08/2009)
Hazy orange color with small steady white head. Honey, mango and some papery hops in reasonably strong nose. After this kind of aroma, beer is drier than expected. Packed with alcohol and some fruityness and spiceyness. Alcohol is warming, but not dominating. Dry finish with papery notes (hops?). A bit too simple palate, although it is decent brew (tripel I would say).

JoeinDahlem (1333) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pale gold with a transient white head. Caramel-sweet, honeyish aroma with yeast and corn. Flavor is quite sweet all the way through with a bit of booze. Like candy. Full body. Cloying.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2007
Bottled. Hazy golden colour, huge beige head. Aroma is fruity, spicy, slightly earthy and some mild alcohol too. Flavour is warming alcohol, spices, fruits and some bitterness. Pleasant.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 27, 2007
330ml bottle, Quinns, 12th August 2007 (with Mes and Sim). Pours a cloudy amber. Spicy wheat and malt aroma, with the same elements carried through in the taste. The palate is heavy with the strength, unsurprisingly, somewhat evident. Nice beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle. Too much raw alcohol in this one for me to enjoy it in any way. Lots of citric, yeasty, Belgian style qualities and then the peppery, raw alcohol in the finish.
