3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big front nose of fruit - apricots and whatnot, and yeast. Orange peel hue, persistent head and pretty active. Sweet, sugary taste with an almost rummy backend, which is the only hint as to the strength. Medium body, minor zest. Another big one from the Belgian tradition. Not too big tough.

33cl bottle, a bit of a gusher... Cloudy dark gold. Apricot, spice and boiled sweets on the nose, dry and peppery yet fruity body, a bit yeasty (surprise!), dry finish with a little honey and apricot.

Bit of a gusher so ends up with lots of residue in the glass and almost no fizz. Aroma quite yeasty. Flavour is a bit unrefined. The bread dough taste overpowers the light sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this one many years ago and found some old notes that I updated and spiced up a bit.
Off white head and a hazy orange colored beer.
Smell sweet as in fruits and malts/barleys.
Taste is more bitter than expected still some sweet grains, yeast and some hops and dough.
Another beer from Urthel that I thought was pretty decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden, slightly hazy and a very good head. Typical Belgian tripel taste with that spice and yeast funk. Nothing stands out - just a solid Belgian.

Bottle. Dark golden colour with a white, fluffy head. Aroma of citrus and fruits and some alcohol and belgian yeast. Full flavour, starts of sweetsourish of lemon, ends like red wine. Alcohol detected in flavour as well as some spices. Full bodied flavour.. great tripel, great brew..
