3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, LCBO. Hazy medium yellow, small creamy white head. Clove, coriander on nose, a bit of alcohol. Taste - really nice creamy yet tingly mouthfeel that opens up a wonderful coriander citrusy taste, mixed with yeast. Finish is a bit odd though as a spice or soemthing comes in to give a metallic bite that I did not care for (alcohol here a bit too - I do not mind that). Certainly balanced and extremely drinkable with lots going on - I just did not care for that finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle - Pours a hazy dark amber in color with almost no head or carbonation. Aroma has a nice fruitiness and, surprisingly, some peaty smokiness. Flavor has definitely got some peated maltiness along with some mild sweetness and hidden (by the smoke) fruits. Unusual and definitely not a Belgian-style Tripel, but definitely not bad...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint bottle from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Birmingham. Well, it was a pint until the bottle turned to Vesuvius when opened. Schoolboy error. Cloudy light orange like pineapple juice. Aroma is complex and intense - ginger beer and citrus lemon/pineapple with slight grass. Like the taste and - sweet but not too sweet citrus tang. Balance could do with a tad more bitterness - it’s over a tad quickly and it’s fizz rather than bitterness that lingers. It’s not heavy, despite the ABV. Very good but just not quite worth a 4

Bottled 25/01/14. A gold to copper coloured beer with a lasting bright white head. A yeasty and dry bready aroma. Yeasty, sweet sour and floral in the mouth. Dry biscuits. A bit of fruit. Nice enough but a little underdeveloped in that nothing really goes as far as it promises.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bit out of whack for the style but a nice crisp and yeast based flavour profile. Pours a hazy bright yellow with a cap of tight but large off white bubbles. The nose is fruity and zesty with big notes of coriander and grassy esters. Nice crisp, full bodied wheat and yeast flavour with zesty lemon and orange rind notes. A hint of citrus hops, mild grassy and hits of pepper and coriander.
