3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slighlty hazy orange body with hardly lasting head. Light banana on the nose and sweet malt. Fruity taste of apricot and figs, effervescent, with sneaky alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy blond/yellow with a dissipating white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, citrus fruits. Flavour is hop heavy, caramel malts, citrus fruit. Well balanced. Bitter at first then becomes milder and quite smooth. Dry mouth feel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy gold body with a large off-white foamy head. Moderate to highly carbonated. Aroma of banana, coriander seed, cloves. Taste-sweet, bread-biscuit, dry spices, banana-a touch of bitterness at the end of the finish. Medium bodied. An estery example of the style and doesn’t have the bitter backbone of some triples, but excellent, I really enjoyed it.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at Biero. Masterpiece. Aromas of apricot, with a touch of caramel; nuts, bread, and alcohol. Taste is sweet and dry, slightly peppery, with great length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Orange, with a persistent head.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No better or worse than most examples of the style (and that includes those from Belgium). Looks and smells like the real deal; glowing orange, big fizzy head and a nose full of sweet sugary tropical fruits. Palate has a hard licorice note, no doubt due to the high ABV, and this dominates the flavours. In fact, hard to pick up much else apart from a cook fruit component. Fizzy finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale in colour, some nice ester aroma there too. Light on the palate but has some slightly hot alcohol there too. Doesn’t come across as being 9.5%, quite light and generally well balanced.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Coppery gold colour, highly carbonated with a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Wheat aroma. Bitter, highly hopped taste with plenty of wheat. Not a terrible beer at all.
