Aroma: Slight metallic scent, an alcohol aroma, and kind-of a peach aroma.
Taste: There is a faint caramel sweetness that is a bit watered down. There is a light tang and a bit of banana pudding flavor.
Mouthfeel: It has a nice thick coating feeling on the palate. Not quite as dry as I normally get out of a tripel, but nice.
Overall: A decent drink but pulled in too many directions like taffy, and very thin in the flavor department.
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, thanks to Garrold, 24/01/15.
Clear pale golden with a moderately appointed off white head.
Nose is straw, citric rind, spice, grapefruit, light caramel.
Taste comprises yeast esters, bitter orange, farmy, straw.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok for style, masks ABV well and more importantly for me doesn’t get overly sweet. 47574xeCD (1132) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015

24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet, cheers Gary. Golden hue to this brew, getting hazier with each new pour, white head. The nose was both fruity and yeasty as was the taste, some mixed spice traces also. Pleasant without setting the world alight, had a few Left Hand beers now, seems a good brewery. imdownthepub (14553) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Garrold for this one. Gold with white head. There is a heavy, peachy fruitiness to this, some spicing, cinnamon came to mind, touch of Belgian teast. Doesn’t quite get to the Tripel astringency for me, but reasonable.
