3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ceramic type bottle with grolsch style lid. Pours a cloudy yellow/tan color with a very large, lasting head and sticky lacing.
Aroma is fruity, spicy, with clove and banana, citrus, a little hops and some biscuit malt.
Flavor is tasty, it’s got tons of spiciness, with clove, coriander, pepper notes, banana and bubblegum, and some funk.
Body is pretty thick with plenty of carbonation and slightly noticeable EtOH.
Overall it’s tasty. A nice Belgian Strong Pale that fits the style nicely.

Triple with nice spice taste.
Very easy to drink. Not too complex. I would rather this be in a 6 pack given the simplicity of this Belgian.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
We were so excited to find this amazing ceramic bottle and a beer inside with such a cool background. This beer is brewed once a year by monks! Sadly, we were not happy with the flavor, and a few weeks after opening the re-closeable lid, half a bottle of this beer is still in our fridge. I think we’re going to pour it down the drain.

A nice hazy golden color that when served in the right chalice has an extremely smooth, very slight hop accent.flavored. doesn’t linger as long as would be preferred but the buzz is fantastic! At 10% abv it gets u pretty good for just one beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours yellow with white head. Really looked like a tripel. Aroma light fruits. Taste light fruits, malts, honey, Belgian yeasts. Full palate. Alcohol fairly noticeable.
Unremarkable Belgian ale.
