Bottle shared with wyzzywyz22 from Ship in a Bottle, Liverpool. Fucker completely exploded all over Rich’s kitchen. Quite sweet, complex, pepper and spice, balsamic vinegar, peach and fruit. Apart from the opening drama I enjoyed this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle from Cracked Kettle. Orange/amber color, with big almost white head, shrinking to a small blanket. Smells like a (sweet) fruity triple: apple, peach, with some spiciness. Flavor is not as sweet as you would expect from the aroma’s but slightly so, malty sweetish, with hints of spices & bitterness. Maltiness develops, then a dry, fairly bitter finish. Good & solid Belgian triple (or whatever).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A beautiful, cloudy and orange beer with a almost big and beige head. aroma is fruitfull and even overcooked fruitfull, bananas, sweet plums, yeast and some spicyness lurks in the background. Taste is also fruitfull, nice herbal spicyness, some peppers, long and dry aftertaste, simpler taste than aroma. Medium bodied, fresh and quite lot of carbonation. Nice, (belgian)fruitfull beer with strenght and effort, but still the brightest crown can’t be achieved.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly darker orange beer then the 6% version. The smell is more malty/grainy, also very herbal. The same thing that is a bit metallic comes up at this one. Good sized head, holds decent. A bit more puwerfull taste, slightly sweet-bitter, malts, herbs, and the yeast gets his way trough also. I prefer this one slighty above the Westoek X. A bit more power behind the taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yeasty citrus, spice and grape aromas. Murky pumpkin color, fine tan head. Taste is a much darker mix than the scent: candied dark fruit, boozey brown sugar, and a touch of salt. Thick, fluffy and filling. Too heavy to be a tripel, too sweet to be a sour. Nice, kind of unique ale.
