3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
the bottle says: "with a name like slaapmutske, it has to be good". well, not so fast. aside from the plagiarism of the smuckers jam companyís long held slogan, the role of names in beer marketing success is highly variable: arrogant bastard and monte pythonís holy grail are beers that reap sales owing to an eye catching name, independent of a beer drinkers experience. on the other hand, schenkerla and westvleteran are names that could choke a multi-lingual auctioneer, yet quicken the hearts of the faithful. at 12 bucks a pop for the 750, slaapmutske had better do back flips of zymurologic acrobatics like a highly caffeinated terrier dog on the ed sullivan show. admittedly a nice start: "slopmustard" breaks wind with a librarians "shush" as the fake cork became suddenly unemployed. bottle conditioned, with a nuclear winter of dark swirling debris in the bottle, once in the glass we gaze upon a beer as richly yellow as a deep cadmium pool of butter, while the head braced itself on top with the surety of a luxury liner, mainsails in white, flags of lace hanging from every line. "spankmonkey" has a simple hard candy aroma, danish butter cookies, hard little peaches picked in spring, flecks of dry hop leaves, and a bit of bees wax. bright carbonation blends vies with sweetness, bitterness and a full creamy body to command some attention. i taste ginger and grapefruit, with a touch of toothpaste lemon-grass. there persists a lingering bitterness, surprising for a tripel, and a subtlety corrupting influence of alcohol. and still those cunning spirals of lace on the glass point the way to slumber: down, so slowly down. itís nice, but, but... i dunno. like a pretty girl that iíd stroke all night but never really risk falling in love with. maybe itís that name: muckslobber-- or whatever.

On tap at a local bar. Hazy bright body with a medium white head. Sweet and fruity, but the yeast flavors are too dominating.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate hay for the malt, light to moderate lemongrass for the hops, moderate musty and soap for the yeast, with white wine in the background. Head is huge, frothy turning rocky, white with excellent lumpy lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling yet slightly hazy at first, but muddies up on the last pour, light to medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic. Palate is medium, slick, with a fizzy carbonation. This Tripel is both tasty and a very Saison-ish

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Clear golden, slightly orange color. Thin off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Slightly slick. Finishes kind of dry, though it might be my palate. Caramel malt, some toffee, light spice, hints of fruit and banana. Some candy sugar. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. A lot of caramel malt on this overall. Not that interesting. OK belgian tripel. Maybe it could be fresher, I donít know.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; a little thin though. A completely transparent gold with thin white lacing. Smells solid; sweet malt with more hops on the nose than most Tripels. I get honey notes too. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as hoppy. Solid on the palate. A little thin, but with a pleasant bitterness that balances what would otherwise be a sweet backbone.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the stubby 330 ml bottle. Serving around 55 degrees. It pours a cloudy pale yellow with a humongous puffy white head that lingers to the very end. Belgian toasted malts, sugar, and butterscotch make up the aromaís main characters with a more muted yeast and clove character. Medium body and creamy. Easy drinking beer with a full Belgian malt, butterscotch, and toffee feel to it and a more modest finish. Sweetness.
