3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from Bierzwerg. BBE 03/2012. Poured golden color, white head. Fizzy, high carbonation. Aroma is spicy, orange/coriander like and yeasty. Flavor is sweet malt, spices, yeast and hint of alcohol. Almost full bodied, felt "raw" somehow. Still quite enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2011 nice bitterness in the taste, later on it gets more sweet... aroma is pretty good, hops and fruity malts and some alcohol (don’t know what exactly), and it gets more complex later on with sweet stuff (raisins?)... very good bitter and hoppy finish, hoppy like oldschool hoppy... a powerfull tough triple
(OLD: yellow orange, big foamy head.... lovely aroma, sweet malts, lots of fruit... taste is a bit too sweet, but has some hints of more sour fruit (citrus/grapefruit) also... finish is medium long bittersweet and warming/alcoholic.... very lively 7,3,6,3,15)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slightly skunky aroma, with honey malts, grass, some citrus, bread. Good cereals, low hops. Cloudy, deep gold with lace. Pretty. Fruity, estery flavor, with peach, citrus, honey, coriander, ok bitterness in the finish. Nice, rich, rather heavy body. Like the lasting bitterness. Decent tripel: not great, and the nose is somewhat wrong, and a bit too heavy, but nice flavor.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Got a bottle from benzai. This beer was a bit boring. The smell was quite okay, but it was definitly lacking in taste. Too much carbonisation.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle. The bottle i had was pobably not treated the best and was a bit old. Hazy golden / yellow with a persistent head. Initially i got lager aromas, but later there developed a soapy aroma. Flavours of stail bread. No hop character to mention. Dry finish. I’ll try to get my hands on a fresher example and update this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light brown, frothy head, quite durable. Aroma is mainly ripe apples, plums, bananas, cloves, caramel. Taste could be more pronounced. Ripe apples, bananas, spices, too much perceivable alcohol for such a taste. Light to moderate bitterness, quite astringent in the back because of the alcohol dominance. Decent but somewhat disappointing.
