3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a nice surprise this beer was! Aroma was nice. Smelled like an Orval. I know there is no mention of brett, but smells like wet blanket, light fruit and stale hops. Pour was a beautiful cloudy light gold with a lot of floating sediment and a huge rocky white head. Taste was very old but sweet. Dusty with a pale malt backbone and a nice drying stale hop character. Sweet fruit comes in and out. Fierce carbonation round this beer out. If I were rating to style, this wouldn’t get high marks as it’s not a great tripel, but as a beer it is outstanding.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden canary with 3-finger frothy white head. Nose is fruity, with honeydew, pale malt, passion fruit, black pepper. Nice nose here. Tastes pale malty, fruity, with a good bit of sweetness, perfumy, floral, but ultimately, even though the noble hop presence is on the assertive side, this one stays a bit too malt-light and non-complex to be considered elite.
