4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Oh good Lord is this ever a fantastic nightcap of a beer. I like ’em sweet and big this certainly is both!
Appearance: Cloudy orange body with lot of carbonation.
Smell: Citrusy orange, yeast and honey.
Taste: Apples and plums and beady and honey and so much sharp sugar character. I only got to sample it and I got all that. I NEED more of this beer!!! ARRG! I will get this beer again and write more but I have to tell you, this one is terrific, with its nice dry pucker inducing finish. mmm.
Mouthfeel: effervescent and creamy but dry in the end.
Drinkability: This is certainly a nightcap not a session beer. That said it is mighty tasty and goes down very easily.
Hope this is helpful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Dirty burnt straw, huge rocky off-white head, clumpy lacing, loads of sediment on the bottom. Soft floral notes on the nose, but not as spicy as I was hoping. It is however a little astringent. Dull spices, bready, not much floral aspect on the tongue. Definitely a dull version of a Triple. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Not hot, but very warming. Astringent like spices on the finish, slightly dry, even a bit chalky. A little rough around the edges, and not as floral as I would have expected, but not bad.

I am nearly orgasmic about this beer. I generally keep my distance Belgians but this one seems to have the right mix of lemony aroma without too much fruit, a nice 2-finger head, a complex palate dominated by fruity overtones and a lingering bitterness with some sense of the high alcohol content. .

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy deep gold in body, this has a creamy off-white head that gradually settles into a ring & film combo. The aroma is based on a light caramel with butterscotch tones. It’s got a spicy nose, peppery, with a touch of tart apples. Light and fluffy in the mouth. The flavor is warm with alcohol, malty, with a faint flowery hop taste, white peppers, and light fruits. Nice and warming brew, good but not great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My first beer from Slaapmutske, which I shall affectionately refer to from now on as "Slapnutz". It’s ironic that I just found this in Super Saver the same time a review of it appears in All About Beer magazine. The pour was hazy gold with a 1-finger white head that refuses to talk to me. The aroma is Bretty cobwebby hopcitrus mixed with floral spice, orange zest, candi sugar, and some taint. The flavor is funky, tainty, floral, spicy, and hopcitrus, and gets drier as it warms. An interesting style. If you are a fan of Tripels, you’ll enjoy Slapnutz Tripel.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a huge and long-lasting white sherbety head. Aroma is slightly tannic and fusely with some nice esters and a light peppery phenolic character. The body is med. and effervescent. The flavors are dominated by a disturbing amount of tanic astringency and hot fusels. Slightly sweet with a very harsh finish. Tastes like a bad homebrew.
