3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Gift. Served it not ice cold but chilled. Pours clear orange, but full of floating coagulated proteins. Doesn’t bother me, but it looks weird. Nose is (mostly absent) yeast driven, with some sweet cereal. Aromawise this is not complex at all, has some marzipan in it. Flavorwise it is mostly sweet, and a bit one dimensional lacking some bitterness and ’bite’. Thus palate mostly viscous sweet, and the palate is warming thanks to the alcohol. Carbonation medium.
As a tripel, a bit too sweet, a bit too dark in color, a bit too dull.

11.2oz bottle - pours cloudy honey amber with rich slightly off-white head and some lacing. Nose is yeast, spices and alcohol. Aroma is caramel malts, basement aromas and toffee/nut. Medium to full body with thin texture. Long nutty finish and ends fairly fry. Taste is mainly sweet. Lots of flavor and yet lighter than most tripel’s I’ve had.

75 cl bottle. Rated on 16.07.2010
Aroma is perfume-like with yeast, flowery notes and hints of alcohol. Palate is rather rich and feels like syrup. Flavour has sugar, alcohol, flowery notes and hints of apricot. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A golden, almost copperbrown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is fruitfull and strongly spicy, orange and orange marmelade. Spicyness is dominating the taste, also black peppers, herbs, some fruityness, sweetness balancing the strong spicyness. Quite fresh to drink, medium+ bodied, lots of carbonation, but that is smooth. Typically, the yeast callms down this beer. Interesting, spicy Tripel, good and enjoyable beer.
