4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Daniel for my christmas gift. Thanks. Pours out an orange color with a thick white head. Smell is hoppy, sweet, spicy, yeasty, some hints of lemon and citrus fruits too. Taste is sweet and refreshing, not much notice of the 10% alcohol. A clear saviour for the night considering the absolute mess that was Goose Island Demolition. Thanks for this one daniel, cant believe I havent drank it until now. One of the better tripels I have consumed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slight big bubbled head with pretty nice lace and a slightly hazy golden color, but mostly clear. Aroma of spice and yeast, as well as a bit of alcohol. Taste is strong, laden with an alcohol burn and a slight sweetness. This is quite tasty and hits hard. I like it. Fizzy and medium body with a nice dry finish that exudes some hop bitterness and a nice sweetness that fades quickly into the bitter and then into the alcohol. This is a nice beer and well worth the quaff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Aroma is sherberty, hops and sour lime, touch of caramel. Pours a hazy gold, huge white head. Very carbonated in the mouth, malt, some plum and some alcohol (not as much as other strong ales). Raisiny, sugary aftertaste, coating and sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle. Hazy peach with a white fluffy head. Instantly recognisable ’Belgian’ aromas - spicey, yeasty, fruity and sweet.
The sweetness carries through to the flavour, with toffee/sugar taste and tropical fruits balanced by some peppery spices.
This is a 10% brew where you taste every percent - leaves a lingering spirit sensation in the mouth that I didn’t like, dragging down my rating. Not a favourite.
