3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really solid Tripel. Pours a bright golden and yellow hue in the body with a big soapy off white head. The nose is spiced with notes of clove, fruity esters and a hint of smoke. Fruity and a bit heavy for a tripel but a nice crisp wheat flavour, citrus and fruity yeast esters balance out well.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
