3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
300 ml bottle at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8.5%
Orange golden colour on the body, small and thin white head with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Sweet aroma, some very light floral notes, sugar, honey.
Taste begins sweet and malty, some grains, honey-like notes, with a nice bitterness on the aftertaste, quite intense at moments.
Medium body, good carbonation, oily palate.
Overall this one turned to be quite good, not exactly what I expect from a tripel but tasty nevertheless.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of malts, straw, slightly sugary, alcohol. Strange, this shouldn’t be sold as a Tripel. I mean, where’s the yeast? Finish is bitter. Drinkable, I guess, but I don’t know what to make of this.

at first I smelled a molten down hockey puck. As I near the end of the beer it smells like a great IRS, but it isn’t...
Just a weird tripel, don’t really know what it is, don’t really know if I like it either.

33cl bottle @ home shared with Thompson. Slightly unclear golden color, medium sized off-white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell malts and grains, is this a tripel? Taste malts, grains, some sweetness and animal food. Yuk. Bad bad bad all the way.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy golden bodied with bright white and frothy yet stable head. Quite yeasty, typical Belgian tripel aroma with oranges although slightly rougher, dough, fermented fruits leaning towards sourness. Not very clean. Fairly tasty but straightforward taste. If anything the somewhat amateurish roughness gives it at least some character. Quite sweet though.Tropical fruit and light sourness towards the end. Not entirely how it’s supposed to be? As it is it’s okay. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)
