3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml brown bottle, poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Appearance is clear dark golden with a medium sized frothy off-white head, that reduced quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma of pears, banana and herbs. Flavours of pears, herbs, spices, wheat bread, a hint of banana and alcohol. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. A little too sweet and the alcohol is slightly noticeable, the flavour is not as crisp as I expect from the style. A good beer judged on it’s own, but doesn’t fair well when compared to classic Abbey Tripels from Belgium.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Lovely golden pour, with a clear, glowing body, and a load of very fine Champagne like bubbles forming a frothy head. The smell was wheaty and yeasty, with bananas and clove being quite noticeable. The aroma of coriander could also be perceived upon deeper breaths. The taste was fruity, and malty, with a touch of hop bitterness. Just a perfect balance of spice added a dryness to the finish. Creamy in the mouth with a tingly sensation due to carbonation. This New Belgium showing some of their best craft. I love it.
