3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I rather enjoyed this on top in Bruges. The flavor was wheat and citrus, coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg and honey, with just a touch of metallic bitterness to detract from the overall experience.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. [thank you, faroeviking]
my 100th tripel rating - only my 4th style to reach that number
Pours a rather deep honey-like, hazy golden with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Fine duration. Sweet fruity aroma, some metal peeping through. Grainy malts and a little oranges. Medium carbonation, fine frothy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite vinious, fine maltiness, some oranges and a really surprising (and nice) dry, hoppy finish. Some pepper, coriander and oranges in the okay aftertaste. Some weak notes of chocolate as well.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, straw yellow with a fluffy white head. Sourish aroma. Notes of stable A bit of yeast. Not very interesting. Flavour is sweet and fruity with yeast notes and a bit of alcohol. Some candy-like and honey notes, and metallic notes as it warms. Finish is slightly malty with lingering alcohol notes. Not bad, but doesn’t really do anything for me. 27-07-08.
