Bottle. Bright orangey beer with a strong but soon disappearing head. The aroma is lightly fruity and spiced, and the flavour is fruity and mildly yeasty with a sweetish lightly bitter and spiced finish. Overall a nice fruity and spiced beer.

Cloudy yellow pour, with an off white head. Sweet and fruity, fig, orange, sugary, light herbal hops, and cookie dough malt. A nice sweet desert beer, not bad for a tripel, which I normally don’t appreciate much.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 02-20-2010 (Flip-top bottle) This beer forms a small fizzy off-white head that mostly diminishes, hazy amber body, visible carbonation, and floaties. The Aroma is caramel malt, hops, sweet, some clove, fruity, and some alcohol. The Taste is sweet, lightly bitter, caramel malt, fruity, hoppy, and some alcohol. The Palate is very smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this is one of my favorite beer styles, but it fell short in the flavor as the flavors just did not seem to come together very well. This beer is not one that I will seek out again.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle bought and consumed at the Foreign Bar, Bedford BF ’08. Amber with a huge white head. Slightly salty fishy aroma with chalky spices. Sweet. leathery musty taste with lingering bitterness. Too fizzy. This isn’t going to be a favourite of mine. Eaten with a damn good bacon and brie baguette.

Swing top bottle purchased at Spirits Point Beach. Poured a deep orangey that was slightly hazy with smaller bubly white heads. Aroma is swet, sugary, green apples, dough, yeast and fruity. The flavor is drier then the aroma and just rather dry for a tripel, however there is a short lived midway burst of sweetness, along with dough, yeast and apple. Thin almost watery body with soft carbonation and a sweet aftertaste. Meh drinkable but not good for a great style.

Bottle. ZBF 2008.
Dark golden colour. Good pale malty aroma with freshness. Fresh pale malty flavour with bit acidity. Lacking in heavy maltiness, still tasty!

Tap, at ZBF 2006. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Gentle malt in the nose, some sweet grain in the mouth and a suggestion of spiciness in the finish.

Bottle: Poured a copper color with a hazyness to it, the head was a white jello. The aroma is sweet, but also had that orange peal. The taste is rich malt, there is definately that orange peal and hoppiness to it.
