Cimbasso (234) - - OCT 3, 2014
A complex Tripel brewed in Belgium for Marks & Spencer. Pours a slightly cloudy (this beer is bottle-fermented) orange gold colour with a fluffy white head. Aromas of bread, orange peel and cloves. Very complex and vivid flavours of ripe banana, orange peel, apricots and cloves. Extremely mouth-filling, but the high alcohol content (8.5%ABV) is quite well-disguised. Very good balance between the sweet malts and fruity hops. The finish is long with biiter hops and Seville orange dryness. A real connoisseur’s beer. Good for Marks & Spencer for making it easily available in the UK.

Garrold (1710) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Clear gold. Thin, tight, lasting head. Doughy. White pepper spice. Barely ripe orange. Taste is spicy dry. Soft, sweet, fruitiness. Palate is light oily. Soft carbonation. Feels quite boozy. Finish is fruity dry. I’m happy to admit I wouldn’t know a decent Tripel even if it smacked me on the arse, but I do like this...

Dank speckled hazy golden, decent white head. Estery and light banana, sweet nose - creamy in a way Fruity and creamy. like an Apricot Frube, tanking bitterness. Surprising finish for the ABV.
