3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Even more complicated version of Zonderik Tripel, apparently refermented with champagne yeast. The ’X’ in the name refers to the ABV. Medium thick, off-white, sticky head, colour hazy orangey blonde. Aroma of Roquefort cheese, gingerbread, coriander, honey, butterscotch, yeast, exotic fruits, some tannins. Complex taste with sweetish onset, fruity and vinous, spicy notes, soft caramelly malt background, aromatic spiced and hoppy finish with a hint of woodiness and warming alcohol. Really interesting and considerably better than the regular version, at least in my experience.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Barely Legal Tasting Room
Pours Dark yellow / orange . Good and stable white head .
Smell is grainy, bit sweet, bit bitter, very in balance .
Taste is very complex . Oak, buttery , grains, sweet ( vanilla ) , almost like ... bourbon ? Just on the borther of overpowering, but just right...
Slightly bitter , some malty sweetness . Some honey .
Nowhere on the bottle / this site , it officially sais this one is barrel aged .. But tastewise ? i’d be very surprised if it were not ...
Nice one !

Molto molto buona: ovviamente sullo stile Tripple Belga ma con un tocco dolciastro e delicato in più. L’alcool si sente pochissimo.
Etichtta molto carina.

Thanks to Gunther for this bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a nice big off white creamy head. Aroma of nice malts and citrus fruits. Tastes is very complex and fruity, nice malts, citrus, some grapefruits, even some hints of coconuts and vanilla. Very strong flavors, very pleasant with long lasting taste in mouth. Good medium carbonation, slightly sweet but bitter in the same time. well balance. Creamy in mouth and full body. I love this beer. I would want more, highly recommended!
