(RBESG05, bottle) Cloudy amber body with a beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, raisin, caramel. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, prune/raisin, caramel. Soft medium-full body. Seems more a dubbel than a tripel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz. bottle. Clear golden color with a thick white head. Malty, spicy aroma that reminds me more of a dubbel than a tripel. Flavor of dark bread, dried fruit and spices. Again reminds me of a dubbel. Aggressive carbonation and a bit thin, but otherwise a tasty beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 33 cl) My original version was from "De Gouden Boom" in Bruges. Orangey golden with a fine head. I get very vinous associations here - like a very good Chardonnay. Spicy with a late bitterness. Extremely, rich, aromatic and complex - the kind of beer that slowly unfolds in your mouth. Great stuff indeed. 151197

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very fluffy, airy ultra-white head; fizzy golden beer with greenish shine. Extremely neutral nose, just something faint fruity as whitecurrant. Little bit of diacetyl? Bready, slight-bitter initial taste; bit spicey and a bit of oxidation (6 months to BBD) it would seem. Gets more sweet eventually. Spicey finish. Texture both like mineral water and some - yes, silkyness. Medium bodied. Good attenuation, but not as some hy-strenght blondes. Very, very neutral beer. Doesn’t mean bad, but - what is there to enjoy that much?
