3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dirty gold with a thin soapy white head. Aromas of stewed apple, honey, flowers, crusty bread and a touch of orange. Taste starts out with some juicy cooked apple and pear with a touch of banana and some sweetness, ramping up to a firmer orange zest bitterness. More fruit and cinnamon spice towards the end with a long fruity finish. Some spice in the aftertaste. Not perfectly balanced but still pretty good.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (BBF 26 june 2011) @ weekly tasting shared by Martinus. Murky yellow color, immediately disappearing off-white head. Smell is weird, blossom and something I really can’t put my finger on. Taste lightly malts, perfume, old, overripe fruits and weird. Average body, fizzy carbonation. Not good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is honey, spices, alcohol and ripe fruit with a little toast. A reasonable amount of hops provides some respite from the alcohol, which is very prominent in the mouth (even for this style). A good tripel but not a classic.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a cloudy golden amber colour with a thin line of white bubbles for a head. Laced poorly. Low carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Lots of yeast particles settled out and this detracted from the beer’s appearance. Aroma subtly of sour malt. Taste initially of sour malt and a trace of spicy hops but as the beer warms the flavour of cloves increases. Not as sweet as expecting. Light body. Not a beer I enjoyed.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 This is a great beer. I really enjoyed the flavour and the taste was light and it goes down easily.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity aroma, hints of banana, pours golden orange. I normally don’t get into these but this was good. Lingering fruity flavours and a lift palette. Murray’s are doing some great work.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber coloured with a thin white head. Underwhelming aromas of banana, citrus and bubblegum. Despite the lack of aroma some great flavours abound, including bubblegum and banana on the front palate, leading into grapefruit and finally biscuit. Reasonably light bodied for a tripel and only the slightest hint of alcohol. Well balanced.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Beervana. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Aroma of mild citrus that was a bit overwhelmed by the barbecuing meat at the stall next door. Taste is sweet and sticky orange.
