4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Poured into a tulip glass. Hazing golden straw color with a finger of head.
Strong fruit smell backed up by some malt. Orange is the biggest player with some lemon in the background.
Layer taste and complex. Fruit sweetness, then a malty middle, orange, lemon and a biting bitterness to finish. Alcohol heat a little while after. Kinda nice, really nice.
Medium and sticky body, moderate carbonation but really bubbly on the tongue.
It’s a great one. Tough to beat.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blonde légèrement orangée, voilée. Bonne mousse blanche, relativement persistante. Lacings.
Au nez très épicée clou de girofle et poivre, maltage sucré. Plutôt florale. Levures. Houblonnage floral. On ne décèle pas vraiment l’alcool, belle balance.
En bouche, mêmes élèments avec une légère acidité avec des notes citron-orange. Légère amertume. Fin de bouche plutôt sucrée. Bonne carbonatation. A nouveau alcool très peu présent pour une 9%.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass
Appearance: pours a thick, hearty white head that falls very slowly with some mild lacing. Color is an extremely cloudy light orange with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: banana, cloves, vanilla, grass and floral aromas with some sweet bread as well.
Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, frothy, with a slightly wet finish and some alcohol burn.
Flavor: lots of spice (mainly cloves & cinnamon), a bit of banana, bread dough akin to a sweet roll, some mild hops for balance.
Overall: An outstanding brew that I have enjoyed many times past and will continue into the future.

Bottle from Joni’s. It’s pretty great. Super high score from me for any beer let alone a Belgian. Pours a beautiful hazy orange with a tight white head that dissipates. Lively carbonation. Incredible balance with sweet malt, clove, pepper, floral notes, biscuits, ripe bananas and raisins all readily apparent. Definitely leans towards sweet at the end. Yeasty finish. Slick mouthfeel. Exactly right for the style.

BOTTLE 341 ML.
Dusty blond tripelesque fruitiness, but also very spicy - even for a tripel - peppery and cloves. The flavour is similar, but more mellow.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
hazy yellow colour, moderate sized off-white head; aroma of coriander, yeast, citrusy notes, hints of honey and dried fruits like raisin; taste of coriander again, grains, biscuity sweetness, fruity notes and some spicy afte-taste - although dominated by sweetness, it still has somehow dry character; great tripel

Sourdough ( I love that smell), nut meg and tangerine. Seltzer, not sticky but it lingers. Poured out of a bomber with no major changes (surprising) as it got warmer. A great compliment to my turkey dinner and I suspect would be with most savory dishes. May you have many things to be thankful about year round, like tasting delicious beer!
