3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle from Belga Sörök Háza, Bp.
Hazy golden coloured brew with a broad pored and medium sized white head, which diminishes completely.
Sweet-spicy, fruity smell.
Mild fruity aroma with oranges/mandarin followed by grain, herbs and coriander spicyness in the middle, mouthfeel’s sharp.
The finish brings some alcohol, citrus and herbs along, which leaves a long aftertaste behind.
Not bad, not bad, but expected a bit more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Multiple bottles in Brugge. Pours a clearish gold with a huge white head. The aroma is quite impressive, especially considering how saturated my senses were by the time I had this. Floral, sharp herbal hops with a very nice honeycomb-esque malt body. Flavour is equally pleasing with a lot of yeasty dryness in the finish as well as a minor booze bite. Citrus, peach and perfume feature prominently. A decent beer in tribute to the battle I suppose.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, medium golden body with a large, white, long-lived head, excellent lacing. Yeast, fruits, spices, herbs and dust on the nose. Medium sweet taste with a very light bitter finish. The flavours are a bit too dominated by a chalky yeastiness that leaves the palate dessert dry. And my teeth, oh, my teeth, it feels like they’re covered with chalk! In addition to the chalk, there are spices, herbs, mild resin, fruits, honey and faint alcohol. I love tripels so of course I like this one as well, but it’s not the most exciting one I’ve had. It lacks a bit on either the sweet or the bitter side, or preferably both.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear gold with an impressive, lasting pure white head with some lacing. Aroma is alcohol and sweet dried apricot/peach. Tastes of table-sugar and apple juice, alcohol and light hops. Body is well-carbonated and crisp. Typical tripel, a bit too sweet and I’m big on the apple-juice taste. Quaffable, though.

An average tripel at best. Nothing too special about it, marking it on the list, moving on.
