3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, own chalice @ Cambrinus, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Hazy, summery, yellow-gold body, finely carbonated, and crowned by a wickedly dense, rocky white head that laced well. Spiced up, fresh and oozing with summery citrus fruits in the aroma. Grapefruit, lemons, orange peel, pears and some pale honey. Alcohol is present but wonderfully toned to balance the fruity esters. Very similar in the mouth; spicy and zesty fruits fill the palate well with a dominant showing of soft pears and apples. Underneath is notes of vanilla, cinnamon and vinous alcohol which lead through to the fresh, mildly bitter but short, warming swallow. Body is reasonably light, the carbonation prickly and lively and it bounces across the palate with ease. This is a nice Tripel. One I could see equally suited to a long Winter night, just as well as hot Summer Sundays. Quite nice. (33cL, no date stamp)

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh aroma of candy, malt and hop. LIght hazy golden tone, with virtually no head. Ephemeral lacing. Something of a hefeweizen start, with some sweetness, a bit thin, but foamy, passing to dry with bitterness. The sweetness sort of disipates. There is lemon, lime or grapefruit - I vote for hints of lemon. If there is spice, rather than citrus rime, it is strange. I find traces of cocoa, but not chocolate. This is just exceptionally complex for an otherwise light ale.

(Draught at Akkurat, stockholm) Colour is straw yellow, with a frothy lasting head. Nose is fruity, yeasty and spicy with hints of lemon peel.
