3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, September 08. Slightly hazy golden orange color with a nice, denese, creamy white head. Spicy, yeasty aroma with some earthy hops. Spicy, fruity flavor, evident coriander, some citric notes with a warming finish. Medium to light mouthfeel, flavor packed but with a nice dry finish that keeps it really drinkable in spite of its strength. Nice, creamy, spicy tripel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 superseding previous shit: 7:4:7:4:14=3.6 super fantastic triple. So soft, so drinkable.
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam) (6:3:7:3:14=3.3)
Rich orange, floaty bits, tiny head. Very light, almost wheaty, maltiness - sweet and with lots of light fruits. Pleasant carbonation in the mouth. Sweet and malty body, quite simple at first, mostly lightly roasted malts, but soon a tingly hoppy bite kicks in. Evidence of alcohol as it helps waft the fruity vapours up the nose, but that’s entirely fitting, no harshness at all. Something almost leguminous in the aftertaste. Not as good as some of their other brews, but still pretty solid.
rerate: 330ml bottle (koht, Tallinn) (6:3:7:4:14=3.4)
mostly as before, but this time the aroma is just so lemony it’s almost caricatured, like a lemonade. Palate is crisp, quite fullband grainy, but also very light. Finish keeps the bitterness nicely. There’s a strange spearmint aspect to it too. This time the beer is so light in every aspect, there’s no sign of alcohol at all anywhere at any time. Impressive.
