4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16fl oz white ceramic flip-top botte.
It pours extremely light for a Tripel, more like a belgian strong pale, it is a crystal clear/very pale gold with a huge, billowing white head that recedes with a ton of fine lacing.
It smells delightful, with big yeast notes, honey, and a massive fruitiness.
The flavor isnít as potent as the smell, btu it is great. It is subtle and fruity, with clean malts and a grassy hop note. The finish is sweet and caramally, but never cloying. The alcohol is well in check.
The mouthfeel is prickly but not overwhelming. The drinkability is nearly tops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 50cl ceramic. As St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru. Microfloaties in this one, else itís clear. The color is golden and itís topped by a dense, off-white head. Itís sweet, sugary and fruity on the nose, as expected, with some faint spices and some apricot. The flavor is sweet and fruity with some warming alcohol. Some bitterness, but not enough. Full-bodied and slightly over carbonated. Fruity, sweet finish. Overall, too sweet but decent. 101126

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, yellow, frothy head with big bubbles. Unmistakable but light Belgian aroma of yeast mixed with spices. Taste is light and refreshing with hints of those spices - not overpowering at all.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
"Yeast Hoist" illustrated version of the bottle, but I guess the beer is the same. Pours a pretty clear gold (on the first glass) with a fluffy white head that stays full and creamy the entire duration. Aroma of grass, pepper, sourdough, lemon, and earth. Flavor of earth, bread, lemon, peppers, grass, and quite herbal. Finishes fairly bitter with pepper and herbs comforted by a doughy malt presence. Medium bodied, fluffy mouthfeel, and high carbonation. Creamy with low heat. Good beer! Nothing too amazing, but worth trying.

A very smooth blond colured beer. Frothy soft palate. Pronounced malty cream. A hint of fruit but quite subtle.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The nose is flowery and promising. But the taste is so mild, itís almost non-existent after the big scents. Left me asking "Am I crazy, or is there no flavour?"

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden or Grand Cru. 7.6%. Big bottle, fancy square metal box. Dark gold with almost no head. Melon and light yeast scent. Flavour is Belgian malt liquor. Relatively plain for a Grand Cru tag. Grainy, moderate alcohol and melon flavour.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Aroma of caramel malts, some light fruit, spices, and a hint of alcohol. Iím not sure how good this bottle is because the texture seems a little off. Flavor sweet with hints of caramel and banana and Belgian yeast. Very little hops flavor. Pretty good beer, but there are a lot of better ones.
