3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Hazy, golden colour with a big and dense cream-coloured foamy head. Yeasty, citrus-fruity and peppery hoppy aroma with strong spicy notes of coriander. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Pale and cara-malty taste with yeasty and hoppy fruity notes; quite dry and bitter finish with a light malty sweetness, slightly citric and floral hops and loads of coriander spice. A tad too spicy but nevertheless likeable Tripel. 15.I.10

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks)
Bright orange. Fruity, but also sour aroma - lemon fresh? Almost urinal. Very sharp palate, carbonation high, and drying in the mouth. Leaves a very fruity hoppy finish. A little thin, but plenty of fruity esters. A touch of alcohol too, alas. A bit unbalanced.
