3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pale orange, hazy. Aroma of sour oranges with hint of sweetness. Taste of orange notes followed by alcohol tones. Very carbonated, as shown when the cork was popped. Lots of bubbles on palate. Not one of the best belgians I have tried but OK for the price. Will try more Abbey Tripel to compare.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
In bottle. Pours a golden - brown colour with a thick white head. Aroma of candy sugar, alcohol, barley and bready yeast. Flavours of burnt caramel, biscuity malt and bready yeast again. Alcohol is quite present. A nice dry finish and an foamy mouth-feel. A bit rich for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold with a thin white head. Citrussy aroma and flavour, some nuts and dryness. Perhaps lacking in the majesty and profundity of a great beer, but refreshing and enjoyable just the same: a bit like a tribute act.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange and citrus notes hit you straight away but these become more pronounced after the beer is left for a bit to allow it to open up a little. There is some grain and alcohol apparent along with a almond like aroma. There is some yeast and hops towards the end.
Orange amber colour with a bubbly, thumb sized white head that halves in size after a few seconds the stays for a good while after that.
Bubbly and spicy on the taste buds with a few other fruity aromas blended in as well. The flavour is a nice one but the taste of grain was a little strong for my liking and there was too much alcohol towards the end.
Medium, spicy and slightly creamy on the palate, this one has a nice bubbly feel to in with rather strong carbonation.
This beer starts really well and was very enjoyable for the first half although I felt that the taste of grain and alcohol became more pronounced towards the end of the beer and gradually became overpowering.
