3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In general it is a good beer, but nothing really special. Aroma is not really its strongest point. Tastes good, but a little bit too sweet, although I like the spicy flavour. Appearance results in a nice gold color.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at De Delirium Taphouse, Brussles. Golden clear beer with a white head. Fudge, malty, hoppy, fruity and spicy aroma. Sweet, tropical fruits, hoppy, malty caramell flavour. A bit too sweet for me...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a fat-three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a bright, pale amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, gold / copper hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of sweet grain, a touch of cotton candy, vanilla scented golden raisins, sweet melon notes, and just a candied pale malt character, which means the overall effect of the nose is on the sweet and cloying side of the spectrum. This has notes of sweet corn, DMS, and just too much graininess in general here in the nose.
Definitely sweet, with a grainy, sort of corn like sweetness that lingers on the palate for way too long. Light spicy notes provide an earthiness, some definite clove flavors, a bubble gum like flavor, and a dirty coriander water note. Very little balancing hop bitterness or flavors, in fact hop notes are not really noticeable at all here. The body has a medium fullness to it, there is quite a bit of carbonation, but for whatever reason this doesn’t help too much.
This is not so different from many a Belgian ale, but it is also the type that I really don’t enjoy; sweet, unbalanced, seemingly unrefined (to my tastes), and just cloying.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very bland and a bit over boozed yet lacks spices or even triple malts in general. Bit bland taste profile and just a big booze hit with none of the awesome triple characteristics.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Weak aroma didn’t really smell much of anything, little citrus, good appearance heavy CO2, really didnt’ taste much of the 9.5 ABV. Good spices hit the palate. This is another beer missing something, maybe some sweetness, good beer but nothing to go out of the way to get.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruits, orange, yoghurt with fruit (apricot?), sweet, herbs, some lemon.
Yellowish blond, beautiful white head that is lasting and lacing, loads sparkling. The bottle gives that festive look that extra push.
Spicy herbs, something bitter, fruits and earth in the end.
Bitter finish, fruits, soft gentle mouthfeel.
