3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden and light hazy colour with a small white head. Rich fruity aroma, over on the cider side. Lots of apples. This beer was maybee to cold in the beginning. Lots of apple flavour. But changed after a while as it got a little more room temperature. Then a soft vanilla and moderate sweet caramel flavour woke up. A lot better at right temperature.
[Bottle from Slijterij t Fust in Hoorn, Netherlands]

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden color with lots of little yeast bits floating (points off). Aroma was an above-average blend of candy sugar, sweet toasty malts, bubblegum, candied pineapple, and a hint of banana. Flavors were similarly sweet and candy-like, lots of bubblegum, pineapple, with an interesting woody character and slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is above average and ’sophisticated’ in that the nice rich sugary stickiness dries up a bit but leaves a hint of slickness on the tongue. A really good example of the style.

7/8/12. 11.2oz bottle thanks to Robert! Hazy orange pour with particulates under a nice khaki head. Fruity aroma with a bit of yeast, metal, and caramel. Slightly sweet malty flavor with plenty of yeast, fruit, and caramel. Not bad!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gouden kleur en een geweldige kraag, die ook lang aantrekkelijk blijft. Zoetfruitig aroma. Behoorlijk veel body. Smaakt vrij zoet met een lichtbitere afdronk. Wel ok maar niks spannends.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 330ml ($5): Pour is a little dark for a tripel, but it has a nice frothy white head. Aroma is rather complex; the yeast stands out well, along with coriander, fruit, and sugar. Taste is not like a typical tripel in my opinion. This is less spicy and more sort of malty and fruity. The body is very nice. The alcohol is nicely covered. Carbonation is just right. Complexity present in every sip. This was a pleasant surprise.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle poured a lovely amber ale with mucho heado. Very nice, lightly sweet aroma with hints of something else (which I don’t have the words to describe), and hints of bubble gum, and hops. medium full bodied and wonderful. It looked better before I swirled the bottle and poured the dregs in the tulip.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Orange amber with foamy cream head. Nose is light and lively with aromas of coriander and white pepper- or something fresh- and toast with jam. Light well-blended flavor that is both lightly sweet and lightly dry. Sadly ends a little to the sweet side, light bodied.
