2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle... Cloudy yellow ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Lots of white protein floaties tooling about the brew. Yeasty, sweet-honey aroma with mild spice phenols. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and reserved carbonation. Sweet, spicy flavor with lots of pale grains, clove and/or coriander. Yuk! Finishes watery and lightly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Hazy almost opaque orangy color, medium sized white head. Smell malts, some fruityness, lightly sweet. Taste lightly malts, a slight fruityness, a bit more bitter in the flavor. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
sweet spice. Bottle work of art. Surprisingly refreshing summer drink. Yeast and cream but doesn’t seem a triple. Better than expected and popular with mates. Fruit, honey, suitably noticeably carbonated. Medium-light mouthfeel, lace and soap bubbles on top of golden yellow.

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 isn’t 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with an off-white head of foam. Aromas are floral and hoppy with some nuttiness - oddly like some English bitters. Flavours are bitter and hoppy primarily with some sweet malts lurking in the background. Could be stronger on the final straight - the finish is spicy but lacking in oomph.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Great ceramic pop-top bottle! The pour was deep gold/dark straw with a minimal white head. The aroma was bready malty, with some fruit, hopcit, but not a lot of intensity. The flavor was pale malty and honeyfied, with some fruit (pear, apricot), and hopcit, plus some spicy floral notes. Not bad, but not a standout, either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Caffe Volo. Golden body, very small white head diminishes quickly. Alcoholic sweet malty aroma. Flavour is inappropriately over-run by the alcohol, with barely a glimpse of the underlying malt. Average palate. Disappointing.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is known as St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru in its country of origin. Pale, drab amber colour; virtually no head, just some transparant bubbles. Quite alcoholic nose, and definitely some oxidation. Dull, lifeless sweetish taste, cookies, old sherry, oxydized. Thin body, flat as a pancake. A beer that hasn’t stood up to - what? Bad storage, transport, age ...? BBD is indecipherable. Will have to try again.
