4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a nearly clear, golden body with a large, white top. Lovely aroma of citrus, malts and a touch of that belgian yeasty-fruityness. Flavor is light sweet with a moderate fruity / estery touch. Some hints of grass, spice / clove and pepper. This is a very good tripel and quite drinkable despite the high abv. The mouthfeel is creamy and it has a lively co2 level. Ends on a dry and somewhat bitter note.

Flaska från SB. Gyllengul med tjockt skum. Doft av mandarin, dill, örter och marsipan. Kryddig och pepprig, lite spritig, apelsin/mandarin, dill, lång besk eftersmak. Intressesand och elegant modern crossover trippel men också lite tröttsam i längden och väl svår.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2016 Draft at Khyber Pass. Very hazy dark gold pour with some frothy white lace on top that left a lasting spray of lace. Complex mix. Dark tropical earthy flavors. Blood orange pineapple. Walnuts. Purple passionfruit. Charred potpourri. Peach pits. Pinecones. Black plums. Squash. Mango cashews. Peppercorns. Spicy, bitter and brash - but smooth concidering the ABV. Certainly worthwhile but not quite as extraordinary as others seem to find it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is sweet and lightly tart, with tangerine, apricot, citrus peel, bubblegum, leafy hops, some herbal phenolics and light spice, wheat cracker. Flavour is semi-sweet at first and some citrusy acidity for balance, with dried apricots, preserved peach, orange and grapefruit juice, orange peel, light bubblegum esters, herbal hops, white pepper, white bread. Finish is quite dry with some warming alcohol, citrus pith and herbal bitterness, some peppery spice too. Aftertaste slightly astringent and a bit boozy. Medium-full body with soft creamy carbonation. Perhaps the hops are a touch faded but it still comes across as a fruity new world-influenced tripel, with hoppy notes merging well with those from the yeast.
