3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange with a large, off-white head. Aroma is yeasty, somewhat hoppy. Lemon, some peel, peach, slightly vinous, some berries and a dab of spice. Taste is yeasty, a lot of spice, peach, light lemon. Quite sweet, ethanol comes through in the middle. Would credibly pass for an authentic tripel. Palate is medium, smooth and not that heavily carbonated.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Visual: Kiddish artwork, still cool in my book. Pours cloudy golden orange with lots of suspended chunky sediment, decent-sized dissipating creamy head, thin layer of retention, some visible slow-moving streams.
Nose: sweet HONEYED malts (typical tripel-style), mild citrus & floral notes.
Attack: dense incoming sweet malts
Mid-palate: ultra-silky creamy mouthfeel, (MAIN) toffee malts, honeyed sweetness(8) orange citrus, (HINT) mild sour/tanginess
Finish: burpy CO2, coriander/yeasty, orange peel bitterness(5), alcohol detection(9), malty bittersweet lingering finish.
Summary: It packs a potent punch. Flavourful and drinkable, another good brew from Mikkeller. (Note: all numbers above are on a 10-point scale, with 1 being weak and 10 being the strongest)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Co-op. 9% Wanted to see Mikkellers crack at the trappist styles - Monks Elixir was quite good. Pour is pretty standard, hazy golden orange with a bubbly white head. Aroma is almost tropical,getting more mango tangerine type citrus sweetness. Mouthfeel is crisp, medium-heavy alcohol character, medium carbonation. Taste is crisp but a bit of a mess for a tripel. Get a doughy maltiness typical of Mikkeller that really overarches the yeast character. Tropical notes present on the palate as well, but just a little all over the place for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Pours hazy golden, good frothy white head. Sweet, yeasty notes and some fruitiness with a little grass. Spicy, citrusy and a little caramel sweetness to taste. Some floral & grass too. Quite a lingering soapy aftertaste and not very boozy considering the ABV. Medium body with pretty good carbonation. Not the best tripel
