KeefOz (1800) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2017
BB 22 JAN 2019. Poured a hazy golden amber with a three- to four-finger off-white frothy head that retained very well but laced poorly. Carbonation high, average and fine to medium. Aroma is very yeasty with hints of cloves and faint sweet banana; alcohol well hidden becoming slight as it warms. Taste is moderately sweet with low spices (cloves, pepper); alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Clean, smooth and slightly dry with a slightly sweet finish. Easy drinking.

Dervock (1253) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle - pours yellow gold with a small quickly disappearing head. Aroma is spice mainly clove, bit of banana and malt. Lots of phenol up front then a transition into a first banana and then spicy finish. Palate is light but fizzy.

TEJA (2972) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2015
Big beighe head. Cloudy yellow color. Dry and spicy aroma. Sweet malty taste that dont give the typical triple elegance. A bit unbalanced with a too small bitterness.

Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours a hazy brownish amber with a pillowy white head. Aromas of apple, pear and spice dominate, with a bit of banana and a hint of booze. The taste is rich fruit up front - apple, fresh plum - with some cinnamon spice and pepper notes. Despite the boozy scents, the alcohol is well integrated and not prominent at all. Finish is pretty clean, with a nice vanilla/spice aftertaste. This was really good.

Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, yeast, straw and some spices. Taste is light to medium sweet of fruit leading to a fruity, yeasty and clove finish. Pretty good.

Its a brave brewer who attempts a Tripel. It is so easy to fall out of style: it has to be all at once pale and restrained, but also rich and dangerously well balanced. This seems to me to be pale but overly effervescent but has a typically Tripel-like off-white persistent head. There are certain tell-tale Belgian basement yeast aromas, but not the candi-sugar hint of sweetness that appears in many Belgian classics. A quick sip shows that there is body and plenty going on in terms of residual sweetness. Its flavours are of orangey citrus and juicy fruju with lots of sparkle and maybe even a nod to tropical fruits. It is endearingly tasty but not typically Tripel. I dont know what to make of it beyond that it shouldnt allow some sort of designation to take away the fact that it is a lovely ale. It just also happens to be rather dangerous because it disguises its alcohol content awfully well. I rather like the label as well.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Pours a rich, dark, amber colour, cloudy with a quickly dissipating head. Nose is initially hoppy, fading to a very mild fruity bouquet. Flavour follows the nose with a big fruit hit followed by a gentle, hoppy somethingness ... although the alcohol adds a slightly acidic astringency. Overall a nice beer in the abbey style but not to the standard of any Trappist.

orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2013
Pours hazy golden orange colour. Medium head with good retention and lacing. Fairly weak aroma of citrus, caramel and bread. Medium creamy body feels good across the tongue. Taste is fairly dry, a little sour. The alcohol is very noticeable. A little bittering adds to a nice lingering finish.
