(Draught at Café Gollem, Amsterdam, 22 Aug 2014) Hazy golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with citrus, bread, coriander and tropical fruit. Malty, fruity taste with notes of bread, tropical fruit, coriander, lemon grass and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Fresh, tasty and a bit spicy. Quite nice.

Hotel tasting with Colin Theydon Bois. Lightly hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Light malts, sweet. Sweet floralness. Sweet spices, traces of lime and coconut. Light finish, touch of spice. A sweet tripel with a subtle twist. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very misty light golden body and stable head. Loads of orange aromas, grassy hops, belgian yeast, leathery too though. Quite unique, like I’ve only had from modern Belgian brewers. Bit too herbal spicy in the taste perhaps, although luckily it has enough sugars an hops to balance and especialyl the ending is very nice again. Would pair very well with Mediterranean foods, but I just enjoyed it on a Sunday afternoon. :) (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Bottle from the brewery under contruction, bottled 08/07/14, brewed @ Anders. 01/11/14. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a medium, white head. Aroma is a lot of lemon and grainy, pale malts, some spiciness, light whiff of sulphur maybe? Taste is also quite lemony with a whole lot of grainy pale malts. Rather sweet. Spiciness abounds in the middle and finish with lime, lemon grass, coriander. Medium with medium carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A tripel with a Thai influence, what with all of the different spices. They’re not overpowering, thankfully; they’re just enough to distinguish it from the style without being a crazy experiment.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled draft @ BAF 2014. Thank you! Light hazy golden, big creamy head. Lots of esters, bitter grass in the nose, bitter spices that I cannot identify. Taste is herbal, esters, grass, hay, same strange bitter spices in the back, bitter peel, not getting chili, malty. Creamy body. Good for the style but I am not really excited here & bit bland & the spices do not really work optimally I feel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow. Lemony aroma. I get the orange peel on the finish, but I don’t find the chili. (I can’t say about the galanga---not sure what that is.) Dry, sticky finish.
