2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Banana/apple yeast aroma. Crystal clear golden-yellow colour with thin yet towering and stable white head. Thin bodied, mettalic tasting. I can’t stress the thinness enough. Flavour is on the sweet side. Not substantial enough for me.

Mountainous Head. Aroma has a sharp bite to it. Dry in taste. Very sharp and spicy yet smooth. Very fine brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big head, but not out of control. Bright golden body writhes with steaming bubbles. Aroma is Juicy Fruit, lemon peel and a time bit of spice. The flavor is slightly tart. Unlike most triples, you can actually taste the dry, hay-like malt. Usually yeast byproduct flavors overwhelm the malt. The finish is dry and short. The flavor is a bit mild but bright and easy drinking. The mouthfeel has a distinct bite to it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2003 To all the wine snobs out there, here you go. Like a fine cabernet sauvignon or chardonnay and dry champaigne, very acidic and wine-like. Dry and zingy with a spicy twist. Beautiful head just like the picture shows.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sweet spice aroma. Huge head, maybe to big if you know what I mean, disappeared very fast. Highly gaseous. Citrus, spicy and hopy not to well balanced. Did not please me at all.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 Thick clouds of Big Big Big bubbles..golden color..
Spiced apple aroma..Super fizzy mouthful
Not too spicy..but subtly spiced, some baked apple with granny smith tartness in the end..Not overly complex but extremely drinkable..
also, does a great job hiding the alcohol
