3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle with gold foil. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is sweet dusty bananas, some yeast. A nice brew; sweet but not overly so, light spices, banana and some berries, very dry and dusty as if its aged a bit. Enjoyable, triples are often hard to love for me but this was good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy golden orange with minimal white head. Aroma of sweet apples, bubblegum dental floss, candied sugar, subtle Belgian yeast, and cotton candy - un-classic tripel, more on the sweeter side. Flavour of sweetened apples and pears, bubblegum, some cotton candy, phenols and a bit of booze. Sweeter and less dry / yeast than I like my tripels, but it’s well-executed for what it is.

(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of citrus, marmalade and a slightly herbal spiciness.
