3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clean gold with almost amber hues and two fingers of creamy white head. Violently effervescent carbonation. Nose shows a light candy-like quality and an ephemeral sweetness. Bready notes and a definitive yeasty quality. Flavor leans more towards raw bread dough and yeast. Light spicy phenolics and raw fruit. Very slight vegetal notes.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, thanks E for sharing. Orange amber with a small, spitty, off white head. Nose shows some dark fruits, bitter citrus, lightly cheesy, quite phenolic and estery--hints of vegetal. Flavor is okay--more vegetal than the nose, some estery sweetness, light banana, light bitter finish. Below average tripel, but not a style I drink a lot of these days.

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.

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.
