2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Has a very faint and sweet Belgian ale aroma. Appearance is a boring yellow with no head. Flavour is icky adjuncys and sweetness with very slight hop notes. Okay mouthfeel. It’s a very awkward style Belgian ale, best avoided.

Pours a clear golden, with a quickly dissipating tiny white head. Aroma of sweet lemon candies, subtle tropical fruit, and strong boozy yeast. Incredibly thin mouthfeel, almost no carb. Very sweet finish, slightly vegetal. This was rough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015-04-05. Dark yellow body with a nice white head. 3+ Aroma of sweet pale malt and dryish alcohol. Flavour is similar with a sweet pale malt core, dryish lightly bitter finish. Moderate alcohol character. Smooth average plus bodied palate. Decent, relatively mild for the style but enjoyable. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Now called "Blitzen Belgian Tripel". Pours a light golden colour with tiny clear particles that float around, but the overall brew is clear. White head with decent retention and some light creamy lacing. Good spiciness in the taste with the Belgian Ale and fruity-grainy malts. Alcohol is well-hidden with just a slight warmth. Grainy aromas with hints of grass and spices. A real easy-drinking Belgian Tripel that I would have again. Wish I could try this just a little less filtered.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from LCBO via my bro, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear golden with a thin white head.
Aroma: Quite fruity from the esters, sweet and honey-like, grainy maltiness, a little spicy, apricots and bubble gum, alright.
Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full carbonation with some fine, prickly points.
Flav.: Quite a lot of Belgian yeast fruitiness, stone fruits and bubble gum, alcohol is evident, grainy malts; sweet with limited bitterness and a long, fruity, boozy finish.
Thankfully not a spiced Christmas beer. Not a bad Belgian Golden Strong/Tripel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (650ml)] Pours a clear gold with an average size lasting frothy white head and some lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, sugar, corn and yeast followed by honey and alcohol. Yeasty, corny flavour along with light hops, a touch of honey, floral notes and a decent bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Average to medium bodied. Easy to drink, not bad at all.
