3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle with many thanks to jaghana! Hazy golden with a white head. Quite complex aroma: fruity, spicy with wine. Full-bodied, the alcohol content is well hidden. Spices (clove, ginger), dried fruit and a vinous touch. Complex and very, very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle bb2018, merci jaghana! A French World Tour in a beer recipe, at least that is the idea... Outcome is a very weird indeed blend of Belgian tripel-palate: dense, not necessarily syrupy, but opaque in its adjuncted pale maltiness. Medicinal notes of condensed ginger and a herbal mix faintly reminiscent of Jägermeister, whereas the fruity notes are those of Gewürztraminer. Feel like it would have been better to wait, age and share this - as this was a world party in my mouth and the guests were shouting in all directions at once...

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours a hazy orangish yellow colour with a fluffy off-white head. A lot of sediment left in the bottle but some mixed with the liquid. Aroma is fruity, orange, caramel and malty. Sweet with belgian yeast. Average carbonation and medium oily body. The 13% ABV is not noticeable at all. Taste is more bitter than sweet with some sour notes. Overall, a very drinkable beer.
