2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - A very bubble beer, hazy light gold color with a nice head of tiny bubble. Lots of spice on the nose. Sweet taste with pronounced spice on the palate. Very dry taste. This style, Belgian tripel, is not even close to a favorite of mine and as such I can’t rate it highly. The nose is weird and I can’t get past the floral/spice flavors rolling around my mouth. For such a high ABV, I don’t taste the alcohol at all. The one highlight of this beer was it held up well to my cigar. The floral/spice held up against my cigar, I could easily taste both.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear pale gold with a short white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is wheat, yeast, banana, honey, cloves. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, spicy and mildly warming finish. (3/5)
Fairly standard abbey-style tripel, pleasantly crisp and dry. Excellent integration of the ABV, which is apparent only as a mild warming. Good, not great. (14/20)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Sort of as expected- decent but not blown away. Pours a rich deep orange with a white head. Belgian notes are really in your face and somewhat boozy. The added spice puts it a bit over the top- would have preferred more subtle. Ends up overly yeasty, Belgiany, grainy and spicy in the end. Enjoyable, but better examples of style readily available.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a tightly packed white head and lively carbonation. Aromas of baked apple, banana, honey, lemon, cinnamon, pepper and orange. Taste is soft apple, banana and pear at first before a nicely rounded burnt orange and spice bitterness emerges. A melange of citrus, cinnamon, nutmeg, bubblegum and more apple pushes through at the end. Full mouth feel and a lingering spicy aftertaste. Excellent.
