2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Moderate off-white head of fine bubbles with very good carbonation. Grass and straw aroma with some yeast, cereal grains and a touch of lemon. Color is a crystal clear golden orange. Wow, big alcohol presence smacks you in the face upon first sip. More cereal grains, creamed corn, sweet malts and some light herbal hops. Tastes to me like a cross between a belgian tripel and cheap malt liquor. Light hint of fruit and some metallic flavors late swallow. A bit disappointed with this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coppery yellow, white soapy head. Nose is sweet, yeasty with hoppy-spicy tinges. Taste is yeast, caramel, some malt, spice. Hops and spice in the finish. Medium bodied, carbonation is a little prickly, but not overly so.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, Gushing head, murky light red with lots of floties, aroma of honey drops, stale bread and some oxidised notes, flavour of honey, dried fruits and nuts with the alcohol quite noticable and a little coarse. Unbalanced and probably a bit over the hill.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Non male! Pero’ all’inizio non ero molto entusiasta, ne del sapore ne dell’aroma, forse era troppo fredda... Dopo un po’ l’aroma l’ho apprezzato di piu’ ma non di tanto, abbastanza inodore. Il sapore invece e’ decisamente migliorato con sentori di frutta matura e dolce in primis la pesca! Si presenta invece molto molto bene, con unintenso color pesca e un bellissimo cappello di sciuma bianco per altro parecchio persistente! Il finale e’ duraturo e aromatico!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber and hazy. It has a minimal head.
It smells yeast, overripped pear (ethanal?) and flowers. The heavy cloying sweetness covers evrything, where is bitterness? I am probably bored by Belgian style or tripels...
Dangerous easy to drink 9% Alcohol beer !
If you love sweet Tripel go for it ! ! !

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.
