3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pleasant floral aroma right out of the bomber bottle. The pour leaves little head, but it stays with the glass. The opening taste is a little citrusy, but that leaves quickly. It doesn’t take long to realize the power of the strong ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hay golden with a small white head. Very aromatic with loads of Belgian yeast, a little crisp green apple, and some doughy malt. Flavour of Belgian yeast, candied sugar, booze and floral notes. Extremely flavourful and slightly better balanced and crafted than the Charleston Tripel. Finishes on notes of booze, candied sugar and apple. A little boozy but very drinkable nevertheless. Great stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bomber bottle pours a golden amber color with a generous white head that retains quite well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and mild yeast with some candy notes. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with some light citrus hop bitterness and a bit of yeast on the finish. Light to medium body with some nice carbonation. Overall, a little on the sweet side for the style, but a decent brew nonetheless.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Pours amber with little head. Aromas of malts and citrus. Primarily just flavours of bitter hops. Quite unbalanced and not at all reminiscent of a Belgian Triple, ie no yeast or malts. A miss for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well-balanced but on the lighter side of trippels. Has some coriander and clove. Pours blond clear with good lacing and head. Finishes with light sweetness. Some booze in aroma as well. Finishes a little astringent. Tap at St. Augustines.
