2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crystal clear medium golden body with a white head. Strong aroma of pale malts, grain, Belgian yeast and generic light fruits. Moderate flavour of far too much sweet warming alcohol, pale malts, grain, caramel, Belgian yeast and vanilla on a spicy background. Moderate sweet and light bitter. Full body, moderate carbonation, a bit cloying. I’m not convinced.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Blonde jaune pale, fine mousse blanche qui ne tient pas. Nez de céréales, sirop de sucre, épices. Attaque un peu amère, alcool, épices, levures. Très sucrée, corps légèrement siropeux, l’alcool domine vraiment trop. Vraiement pas terrible !

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl can from the Simply Market in France: This one pours a crystal clear, light golden yellow color. There was a bit of a white head on it that left some lacing. Surprisingly light aroma for an 8.5% beer. It is a bit musty and grainy. Maybe a touch peppery. The taste is rather non-descript. It tries to have some tripel notes (yeasty, clove, etc.) but they are in the background. A bit of alcohol, notes of adjuncts. Just strong with minimal flavor. I guess it serves a purpose...

Pours clear golden color with a huge white head. Yeast and spices on the nose, mild toffee, some malty notes and orange also. Fruity flavor, mild grassy notes as well, some yeast, spices and some alcohol. Sweetish sourish palate. Decent but a bit simple.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear yellow body with loads and loads f large specks of yeast floating around. Nose has notes of citrus fruits, figs, raisins and molasses. Taste is quite sweet but finishes in a long, smooth bitterness. Carbonation is just above average and the mouthfeel is surprisingly light. A decent beer but a bit simplistic.
