3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. A clear golden one with a medium sized quite white head. Smells actually mildly of snuff (snus) and fruits. Some rhubarb perhaps? I don’t know, but I know that I find this quite nice in the flavor! It’s light fruity and yeasty, with some spicy pepper and a little warming hint of alcohol. OK, perhaps a bit more than a hint, and the same in the finish. Almost boozy aftertaste actually.. 10.05.2012

Pours golden, nice white foam. Aroma of Belgian yeast, candy. Taste feels really Belgian as well, feeling as if in Brussels. Sweet, with subdued bitterness and much more powerful than your usual Belgian ale. Some sour notes in the aftertaste.

Draught at Mikkeller bar, Copenhagen. Slightly hazy golden color. Aromas of clove and tart berrries. Sweet flavor with grapefruit, gooseberry, toffee, soft warming alcohol and some tart vinous notes. Some phenols in finish. Full bodied. Nice vinous and fruity character, a bit heavy on a palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On my first flight of beers while in Pizza Port San Clemente on 17th July 2014. Golden with a thin white covering. The aroma was semi-sweet and fruity with a mini yeast hint, the taste followed on the same. A pleasant enough Tripel with an alcohol content that is hidden well by the flavours.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Can smell and taste the corriander, with some citrus notes. Somewhat peppery, and other spices, on the palate. Sweet. Not one of my favorites.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. An almost clear one, golden in color and topped by a finger-thick, white head. The aroma is fruity with a faint sourish touch, still it feels quite sugary. There’s some alcohol warmth in the mouth, it’s full-bodied, soft and smooth, with flavors of fruitiness, some white sugar and a sourish hint. A pleasant bitterness too. Dry, fruity finish with a touch of something peppery, and with hoppy bitterness. A tasteful beer, but a bit too sugary and warm, but it drinks deceivingly easily. 120510

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared competition bomber that was brought out of the cellar, and poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of white head foam, and light waves & spots of lacing. The nose was subtle tartness, light spice, citrus, & stone fruit. The taste was similar, with a more evident, candy sweetness, rather hidden alcohol, and good carbonation, all in a medium body. Rather tasty, and cellared quite well considering a 4 year nap.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy golden pour with a tall white head. Very strong coriander scent to this beer. Tons of banana, citrus peel, and sweet malt. A light herbal quality, some sugar, and yeast. Tastes of coriander, banana, orange, and sugar for the most part. A nice yeast character, plenty of pear and apple esters, and a slight pepper note.
