3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Belgian Belly, Manchester. Poured a hazy golden colour with a lingering white head. Aroma was yeasty, citrus fruit with a hint of spice. Flavour was sweetish and quite malty.
Alcohol not that well masked, but not bad on the whole.

Blond color. The aroma is initially perfumy. Balanced, well bitter, but not special, lacking complexity.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours mostly clear yellow. Light pillowy yeast and light mineral character to the nose, with a similar flavor. Some medium sweet candy sugar and a light tripel-like candy sugar note balanced by some moderate dryness. Dry and grassy at times, well balanced, if not thoroughly complex.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A true Belgian, this rare treat boasts a magnificent whiff of yeasts and peppery spices along with a hearty presence of alcohol. Beautiful to look at, wonderful to smell and supremely good to drink. Quite reminiscent of Kasteel Blonde, a very good thing in my book. Excellent!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle: Extremely brilliant and vibrant pure gold. Very large white head with a creamy mushroom top that continues to grow for several minutes after you pour. Carbonation release looks spritzy. "Typical" tripel aromas laced with a slight sea-shell aroma. Tons of table sugar, banana, touch of bubblegum, tart yellow fruits and light malt (pilsner malt). A definite "greenery" persists. Something that is slightly stale in the background. Perhaps some DMS in there too. Very lively carbonation cuts into the back of your throat a little. Hot alcohol and sweet middle. Very spicy yeast character, as well as dried spice, becomes a little harsh when forced through by the alcohol. A little hop character pops up here and there. Malty sweet finish with stale old hops and alcohol
