3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 bottle-conditioned 375ml. opaque golden amber body with a tall-building foamy off-white head; gorgeous appearance. lush nose of sweetened baked grains and buttered toast with neutral dish soap / floral esters, apples, and candy sugar with lighter touches of cracked peppercorns and barely a trace of ethanol. creamy and rich, high bodied and sweet but with ample hop bitterness and quaffable acid, especially up front. turns sweeter and chewier in the finish, which coats the mouth with browned banana esters and neutral ethanol and phenol spiciness. turns a bit too chewy and sweet and banana-dominant as it opens up, becoming more unidimensional, but the creamy body and mild pepper phenols are enjoyable enough to save it. very near authentic; give this to me blind and I might say it’s straight out of the low countries.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a completely transparent gold with white lacing. Smells sweet with a big Belgian yeast presence along with notes of clove and spices. Tastes like it smells, only not as robust, and with some odd butterscotch. Average (at best) on the palate. Not my thing.

Light haze on this gold beer. Residual white head. Palate is smooth with low carbonation. Pretty sweet malts, even for a Tripel. Light dry floralness, touch of spice. Sweet dried fruits. Fairly neutral finish. Pretty tasty but slightly sweet.

The head is good, the body cloudy and blond. It smells maltaromatic, fruity, yeastaromatic. The taste is fruity, maltaromatic, yeastaromatic. Very aromatic, quite nice.

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.

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.
