3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. 2009 vintage. Almost clear, light amber/deep golden liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of banana, horseblanket (funk), wheat, bubblegum and red fruits/berries. Taste is light to medium sour, light sweet with no bitterness with notes of belgian yeast esters and funk. Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Interesting blend but it doesn’t work to well. Too much overripe bananas for my taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl fairly priced (?older) bottle @De Capital, Leuven 08/2014. Original, long overdue crossover/blend recipe executed with near perfection: the base Vicaris Tripel is a rather new wave, dry and bitter tripel that can stand some Girardin (label: changed again back from Boon?) lemony tartness and certainly handles the funk very elegantly on top op its pollen-like bitters, gentle green pepper spice and citrus. Easy drinking due to a strange sort of profile void in the mid part, where it lacks the typical round fruity body of a BE tripel - near sessionable, on my list for buying more regularly if available. Lots of food pairing potential...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy and pale golden with an average, lacing white head. Aroma of caramel, brett notes, funk and some fruit. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and a little acidic and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice brew indeed.

Interessante incrocio tra una tripel e una gueuze, dall’aroma molto intenso e floreale. Il gusto è ricco, con note floreali, fruttate, di buccia di limone e leggera banana e un’acidità soffusa e molto piacevole che ne ammortizza la dolcezza. Non si tratta propriamente di un’acidità da gueuze, ma il risultato è più che buono!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (330 ml). From Kevin, thanks! Bright golden with a small persistent white head and some lacing. Aroma is of light barnyard and funk at first followed by Belgian yeast, light spices and fruity notes. Taste is a lot less intense than aroma and slightly sweet with light funk, yeast, malt and light banana/fruity flavor. Light to medium body. Alcohol is well hidden. Good carbonation. It would be nice if the Gueuze aspect was a little more present, but that is still a very interesting beer. Easy to drink. Well balanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4oz pour at Max’s Belgian Fest. Pours a hazy orange with some thin white head. Nose is really nice, bitter greens, dandelion, classic geuze, brett, horsebarn, lemon rind. Flavor is really solid too, grapefruit rind, dandelion greens, flower petals, some light candy sugar. Medium bodied, tart finish. Very nice.

Draft at Global Brew in OFallon. This was semi clear and golden with a small white head. Lots of sour flavors and funk that seemed bretty. Also lots of nice fruit flavors. Some banana and sugars and late hops. The funk tended to dominate.
