3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One finger of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is bright with lemon and grapefruit with some dry grain.
The taste is disjointed at the beginning then moves to lemon bitterness, alcohol heat and grain.
The texture is crisp with a little fizz.
An enjoyable ale.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Beerfest Asia, Singapore on 25/06/15. 50cl corked bottle, shared. Hazy golden colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, some spices, but sweet. Floral notes on tasting, with an overpowering sweetness. Yeast and fruit in the background. Just too sweet to be enjoyed - I like candy, and I like beer, but not together! Tastes like a sweet sparkling wine.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy medium gold with one finger of rocky white head, good retention and lacing. (3/5) Nose is yeasty, dark fruit, caramel/toffee malt, banana and clove. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, very mild bitter. (5/10) Medium to full body, prickly carbonation, off-dry boozy finish. (3/5)
Meh. Slightly past its best before, OK, but I dunno how much better it would be fresh. This is the type of triple I don’t really prefer: malt-forward and fuller-bodied, instead of crisp and dry. The ABV is intrusively present as well, with the heat feeling like an unbalanced afterthought. Couldn’t be bothered to finish it. (10/20)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2015 Hazy in appearance with yeast at bottom. Smells like bananas and bread. A strong taste of bananas up front and in after taste. Very little clove flavour. Bready with a slight sour dough taste. Little to no hop flavour. Nice mouth feel. Slight alcohol warmth. For $6.99 NZ for a 500ml bottle at 9.5% this is a very good deal!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very disappointing. I guess I’m not the target market, being a hop-head, but this was barely drinkable. Sickly sweet and caramel flavours with dominant alcohol. Tasted like Lion Red spiked with a double shot of cheap vodka. Looked great, but that’s all.
