2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy orange pour, no head, no carbonation at all in fact. Aromas are all Belgian yeasty goodness - pepper spice, coriander, whisky-end phenols. Palate has wine-like qualities, due to the high alcohol no doubt, but white grapes are there, alongside raw grain spirit notes. Weird beer. Not sure I like it. Being totally flat didn’t help.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very cloudy straw/yellow. Aroma has lots of spicy yeast notes - pepper/coriander. Also orange zest, cereal. Drink is a bright and flavourful citrusy opening, which disintegrates into a dull grainy bitter finish. Big transition through the sip.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Pours orange in color with a whitish head. Notes of citrus, floral and perfume in aroma. Some grassy bitterness and faint hints of white peppery spicyness in taste. What sticks out is however the sweetness of some butterscotch here. A bit too sweet and doesn’t have the punch I’m looking for in a tripel.
