3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
06/04 0.33 l bottle at Hopdevil, Zagreb. Poured clear golden body with medium white head. Fruity aroma, orange, lemon, some malty characters like caramel and some spices. Flavor good, too, quite bitter, mostly dominated by orange and other fruits and spices, a bit alcoholic, but not really full bodied. Although very pleasant, could be more complex to hide alcohol content. Finish is very nice long bittersweet extracting the best things from the flavor. Very good beer, an OK tripel, could be better for what it is, but fine.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark golden colored, little white head. Bland aroma with fruits and mild alcohol, some cardboardy orange also here. Medium bodied. Flavor is also cardboardy and dry with yeasty-lemon, not too convincing tripel for my taste. Alcohol dominates this lemony aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. High fluffy but very long lasting wihte head. Slightly hasy (or my glass is dirty hi hi) yellow body. Sweet barley malt aroma with bisquite notes as well. Barley also dominateing the flavor whith is otherwise relatively sweet. Hard to beleive that the alcohol percantage should be 8.5%. Well hidden, Good. Low carbonation and long barley aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at The Rover, Gothenburg, 1 Aug 2007) Golden, pale amber colour with huge white head. Fruity, spicy notes with bread spices and a hint of almonds. Fruity, spicy taste with notes of apricots and grainy, spicy notes of "finska pinnar", bicarbonate and baking-powder. Average tripel with some strange grainy characteristics.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From Hopdevil in Zagreb. Annoyingly sugary, powder sugar infested nose where algae and herbal qualities are registered besides the dull, sour bread yeastiness. Dull orange pale colour, strongly effervescent, but never making that head quite lasting. Taste continues in the same poor vein: orange juice, tart pie crust and baking powder hints, all stuck together by this attacking carbonation. A rare case of a very bad tripel.
