3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 On draught at Roscoe’s 4/13/13. Deep golden. Sweet caramel aroma. Grape juice flavor and an odd almost bitter finish. Seems much more like a malt liquor than any tripel. Again, had on draught, but at 26th Oregon Brewers Festival 7/24. Deep golden almost amber. Sticky sweet malt aroma. Taste is incredibly sweet malt with a very present alcohol note. Slightly bitter finish with an alcohol warming effect.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Malty, big fat fruity nose, with overripe peaches, maybe some woodiness, too. Copper/orange color, fairly thin head. Thick, syrupy fruit, dates, oranges, some wine or light brandy, a bit phenolic in mid and final. Meaium-heavy body, some alc presence on tongue. Hot aroma, boozy and fruity. A bit much, really, like a fortified fruit beer.

On tap at PIB 2015, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out a good mix of resin and biscuity caramel malt. Flavour is quite fruity, with stone fruits, light piney hops and a dry biscuity malt backing. Well-balanced and clean, but not terribly complex.
