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

Draft (Oct. 2011, from notes). Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large creamy off white head. The aroma and flavor had soapy, floral character, some sweetness, herbal notes and some citrus. A hint of the alcohol comes through. Fairly smooth for a tripel.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass golden, modest turbid, nice head. Moldy aroma. Starts strong, a bit alcoholic, quite moldy-grasy. Finish unbalanced, malty, soapy. Not my favourite.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange-amber with a lasting and light lacing frothy off-white head. Aroma is coriander, orange, caramel, ripe fruit, grass, citrus and a little phenolic. Taste is near moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is viscous/slick, carbonation is moderate. Finishes sweet with lingering spice. I can’t make much sense of this.
