3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slighty cloudy straw colour, lovely white fluffy head. Aroma is citrussy and sweet, kind of clovey like a belgian wit. The flavour is also quite citrussy and spicy, with a not so pronounced malt flavour too it. The alcohol is well hidden, and the finish is a little sour. Good, but I couldn’t really get into it that much.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear yellow colour, with a lot of carbonation resulting in a huge white head. Loveley sweet hoppy aroma, herby, fruity (some citrus, green appel) and some grainy-malty hints. Full palate, some agressive mouthfeel. Finish is sweet-bitter, some alcoholic touches, beautifull balanced. This is a top beer!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Golden pour and a frothy white head. Lovely nose, malty, sweet, floral, spicy, and some yeasty funk, a little cellar in there, too. Fantastic. Tastes crisp, sweet, very malty, slightly fruity, spicy, and a touch of alochol in the warm finish. Heavy. Complex as all get out, this is one beast of a tripel.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
a beautifull unfiltered,jellow-orange
first,big head ,lthen a nice rim lasting in the glass
many different smells,there is something bitter-spicy,remembering me ginger,but something wine-like,almoust champagne-like, and some interesting bitter-sweet, malty and a bit of clove,even a smell like some coocking herbs but altough some fruit
the bitter-sweet malty impression grows while drinking it,but the champagne-like impression too.ginger,middle,smooth carbonated in mouth
aftertaste spicy,but also champagne-like,bitter-sweet,warm alcohol,but semms not so strong as it is,good fitting of alcohol to the flavours.
i love it’s interesting complexity !!
sweet and bitter, fruity and herbal, -opposits,but fitting here really well together.astonishing freshness for it’s strength!!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
11.2 oz bottle. Clear, golden and bubbly. Jagged white head that slowly dies; tentacles of lace. Lemon-lime, club soda, a little grass and grain. Starts wheaty with green apple and unripe pear. Carb transports just to the edge of bitter. Nice medium body; almost creamy. Not flashy but manages to balance the tart/bitterness and carb/body to produce a fine beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light yellow gold body with a huge white head. Looks somewhat like a Macro in color. Aroma is sweet and fruity with banana and clove. Flavor is extremely sweet and fruity, mainly banana, but quite light and pleasant. Lightly carbonated palate complements the flavor.
