3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Waitrose, Billericay. Pours a beautiful pure golden straw colour with a billowing cloud-like white head. Dry crushed coriander seed as well as hints of clove and a touch of grassiness is present in the aroma. A nice medium-bodied beer over the tongue, there’s an initial dryness followed by a honey sweetness before flavours of banana, peach, subtle toffee and a little coriander seed again form in the mouth all wrapped up in a wonderfully tart package. There’s some honeyed dry bitterness in the aftertaste which lingers in the mouth like a ghostly reminder of the beer that was there moments ago before slowly fading. An absolute delight..

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour. Cloudy golden with large creamy white head. Aroma is bread, banana, and vanilla. Medium body. Large bread taste that quickly moves to a lingering bitter taste. Not the worst beer, but much better abbey tripel styles are available.

Pours a gorgeous creamy dark blonde, very fruity nose. Tastes of cirtus, cream, with an aftertaste of spice and a great bittering finish. The palate is thick. Overall this is an excellent beer!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On the pour:deceivingly plain,pastel plum and cloudy.the head looks real good,small compact white bubbles that cling to the side of the glass,this goes way beyond lacing,sweet fruity/yeasty nose.
On taste:outstanding,spicy start,cloves Cinnamon,and sugar,then vanilla and rotten banana's,onto sweet brandy and orange..I could go on but I think i will just kick back and enjoy it from here,you get the idea...Its good!
body is great,thick,full and coats the pallet on first sip,sweet on swallow and fades into rock candy in seconds.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 33cl. Fabulous this one! Golden colour. It has a strong effervescence and a huge and beautiful white head, with a nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, with notes of spices and malt. Flavour is smooth and a little sweet, everything very well balanced. Alcohol noticeable but not overwhelming, all completed with a dry finish. Superb!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The nose is instantly hit with a cascade of flavours with citrus, spices, oats, and apples. The flavours on the palate is rich and full with a big fluffy head that hangs around the whole drink. This beer is a gem.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Had this at thanksgiving and the cork voluntarily poped out after i screwed off the wire and it ended up all over the place. This is a frothy one that should be poured slowly. The taste is bitter sweet (sorry for the cliche).
