Pours muddy pale brown. Not intensive aroma but otherwise it’s yeasty and a bit fruity. Taste is a bit sweet and sour with spicy, bitter, astringent afterpath. Middle body, pleasant mouthfeel. Overall drinkable beer not to remember.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tall brown 33cl bottle, best before Dec 2010, drank Jun 2010. Poured into a Westmalle chalice.
The sediment leaped out of the bottle, so the appearance reflects that point. Meaning the body was full of floating particles, which took their time to settle down. The light amber/orange body had a white bubbled head at the start, soon to be a thin covering.
Very little aroma for a Belgian beer, some yeast esters if you search hard enough, otherwise nothing. As it warmed a sweet, fruity smell started to come through, but too little, too late.
The taste was as weak as the smell, the alcohol was detectable from the first sip (always a bad sign in my view) because the brew had no real flavours to hide it.
It may well look good in the bottle packaging, but the actual beer is not so great. This is the worst Belgian Tripel I can remember ever having!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled aged 4.5yrs, 330ml from Marche de Natalie, Bouillon, Belgium. Gold but masses of floaters, white head. Initial sweet maltiness but with a dough like character, herby, yeasty. Then the alcohol bursts through massively, strong, orange pith, drying, a little overwhelming. Heavy finish, possibly a little too direct for me.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Filtered clear golden with big white head. Nose : tart and dough malt notes. Flower and some fruit esters. Sip : low density and creamy/oily texture. The beer is crazy sweet with all the nose aromes confirmed. There is little sour in the aftertaste. Overall : I avoid tart beers if possible but If you like a tart taste , this would be really interesting. So go for it if you like liquide dough.
