4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to TikkiGodxxx again...this was poured into my "how-fitting" Maudite Tulip glass
Appearance: Murky Orange hue with a fair amount of body carbonation....and a very minimal white head...which quickly dwindles to a rim lacing and pond like fizzles but later leaves nice wall lacings
Smell: hmm...strong yeasty champagne notes come first off....peppery hops....buttery malts....and floral phenols....quite potent
Taste: Lets see....slurp slurp....hmmm....pretty nice stuff....it is maudite reminiscent as proc mentioned...bitter honey-suckle....already buttered belgian biscuits...bananas and cloves start to come forward as a few sips have already saturated my palate...pretty good compexity and balance....
Notes: a fine species...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep golden, slight haze, with a healthy creamy off-white head that leaves some clingy thick lace. Nose involves spice and clove notes, sugar cane, some citrus and banana, and plenty of doughy yeast. Very sweet flavor, with a light bitterness and a dash of tartness. Medium-full body, fairly active, with a zesty peppery phenolic yeasty finish. A decent brew, somewhat refreshing for its size, but ultimately too sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Taster on tap at Jackie-Os. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Decent rows of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter kind of soft carbonation. Some stickiness in the finish. Sweeter taste, somewhat spicy, bit of a hot bite in the finish. Belgian candy sugar, some spice, very light citrus notes. Not a great tripel. Bite is pretty pronounced and unnecessary.

One finger head, thick, off white, mostly diminishing, amber brown color, mild fruit aroma kind of like a pear, a little boozy aftertaste that warms my throat.
