3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Odd herbal medicinal aroma, some phenolic aspects. Clear gold, small head. Light perfumey retronasals, very floral. Remarkably light palate, no 9% at all. Plenty of light grains, fairly malty and sweet, floral. Good tripel. Finish light perfumey grains. Nailed it.

Tasted at the TAP Nøgne O food pairing for Matt's birthday. Had with chicken batter bacon with mayo. Bright gold-amber, white head, huge foamy legs. Peat smoked malt and semi-refined sugar. Smells yeasty, estery spice and orange, small amount of smoke, sweet slightly clove finish. Tastes of citrus, yeast, ever so slightly smoky. Body is sweet and a little grassy, fizzy carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Cloudy orange color. Medium size, white head, stays. Faint citrus, orange, fruity, juicy aroma. Weak aroma. Peat, smoked, grainy, citrusy orange peel, fruity, juicy taste. I love how peat and orange mix in aftertaste. It’s like redheads in miniskirts, instant bononon..... Nothing says it’s 9%. Soft carbonation enhances tingly orange esters and makes it complete. Awesome brew!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves a thin lacing. Sweet and fruity aroma of malt, yeast, citrus and some hay. Full body, creamy feel, average carbonation. Taste is also sweet with some bitter herbs, smoke and a backbone of alcohol. Lingering fruity finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Versa nel bicchiere di un bel colore giallo dorato; la schiuma è buona, ma si dissolve abbastanza rapidamente, lasciando soltanto una leggera velatura. All’olfatto emergono principalmente sentori mielati e di lievito belga, con dolci note fruttate. Il sapore ricorda il buon bilanciamento delle Tripel belga; buon equilibrio tra frutta, malto caramellato e giusta amarezza. Il profilo sensoriale si arricchisce con note fruttate e speziate; bello ed intrigante anche il finale, con la piacevole presenza di malto affumicato.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Old rating rerated 17.04.2015, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry grainy, yeast, flowers, dried grain, minerals, grass, citrus peel, weeds, hints of something sulfury. Taste is sweet, candied sugar, yeast, flowers, grass, citrus peel, minerals, weeds, grain, dried fruits. Medium bitterness, sweet and slightly harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea. Used to be a lot better many years ago, specially when it had a tiny smoky touch in it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fifth beer at Nøgne TAP birthday lunch. Hazy opaque golden sunny pour. Aroma is very yeasty - banana and maybe coconut. Spice. Honey. Like an amped up version of the saison in some ways. Taste also like a rounder more smokey saison - same peppery clove notes, honey, richness. Some booze. Lasting honey yeastiness. Not bad.
