3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ML bottle
Clear, slightly darker straw yellow color. Think white film for head. Touches of carbonation bubbles.
Quite a fruity nose. Apple, pear, overripe stonefruit, and some stale bread. Nice complex nose.
Taste is a bit dull. Lots of stale bread overripe pear and cardboard.
Sweet and spicy on the palate. Makes up for the taste. Bits of clove and black pepper are nice touches.

Aroma is complex fruit, some pilsner qualities and slightly perfumed. The flavor is fruit, light citrus, malts, a hint of hop resin and a mix of bitterness and tangy in the finish.

It poured out a very cloudy - opaque, reddish, gold colour, with a thin layer of head. There was a hint of carbonation, with very light lacing.
Not much smell here - some candy & a bit of yeast.
The taste was sweet with candy & malt prevalent and some spice with a dry finish.
A tasty beer, worth trying.

Didn’t know what to expect what to expect from this one. The smell was almost winey at first and could smell a little alcohol in it. In first with a nice foamy head. The taste is a little but again I can taste alcohol but not in the usual bad way it is very pleasing alcohol taste. It is a light, oily feel in the mouth. Overall I went in expecting very little but i was very pleasantly suprised.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Warehouse, Phnom Penh. Poured copper for me, lasting head. Nose of a typical tripel but underlined by a lot of wine character, flavour is less than average spiciness, more wine. Great esters, effervescent. Really liked this.
