1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Gave this one a couple points in some categories purely because it contains alcohol. Awful...tastes like someone dumped liquid soap into a beer. Smells like soap and tastes like soap. After 3-4 sips, Iíll be donating this one to the Frankfurt sewage system tonight. A shame...

14/III/14 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: n/a (2014-281)
Bit cloudy beige beer, big fizzy white head, unstable, dissipates quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: pretty chemical, somewhat sweet, honey, yeast. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, chemical, bit dirty, unpleasant. Aftertaste: bit sour, band-aid, bit chemical, very dirty, bit sourish, thinking about an infection here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home, 330 ml. Into a big tulip glass.
Lots of bits and pieces of yeast made their way into my glass, but before they make the beer hazy the colour was a nice bright orange one, certainly a bit hazy already but not as cloudy as after the yeast fell into. Almost two fingers of white head, a bit thin, with quite good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of old cheese, but thankfully faint. Some alcohol in there too. Lots of yeast. Nuts. Starch.
On the taste there is this old something again, like old cheese or old wheat, but it is not bad at all, it gives this beer another character. A bit salty. Obvious alcohol here, very boozy for an 7.5%. Some malts as well along with stone fruits.
Medium body, high carbonation.
Overall very good. High on alcohol surely and not the typical flavour profile you expect from a tripel, but good nevertheless.

Boring Belgian blond beer. Bit flat and watery, I donít understand the added value of this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from Beerhive.
Appearance - blonde with a fairly thin head and a slight haze. Nose - interesting combination of grapefruit from hops and pineapple from the yeast. Also some spice perhaps ginger. Taste - more grapefruit and pineapple with ginger. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a dry refreshing finish. Overall - a good Belgian Blonde in my opinion.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, Carringtons, Chorlton. Hazy piss colour with no head and a fair amount of sediment. Weird nose, sweet and floral, vague marzipan. Flavour was slightly bitter. Yeasty and fizzy. Didnít float my boat.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at home. Pours murky yellow with no head. Lemon, yeast, soap aromas. Tastes sweet and sour and odd. Sticky texture, average carbonation. Finishes... unusually. Something not quiet right with this.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Met wat goede wil ruik je de tarwe. Heeft aanvankelijk frisse afdronk, maar dit moet helaas snel plaats ruimen voor een wat wrange, ijzerachtige smaak die blijft hangen. Qfknapper, zeker voor een tarwebier vqn 7.5%,

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a thin head. Aroma is a slightly strange mix of lemon and clove with a strong almost minty antiseptic note. Flavour follows aroma with a strong antiseptic aftertaste. It is possible that this is a one off infection or contamination but this beer should never have left the brewery. A pity since the other beers from this brewery have been pretty good
