3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours hay-coloured and very hazy; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: candied apricots, lemon-marmalade, alcohol, and candy-sugar. The taste is light sweet that finishes light bitter; there are notes of: grapefruit, apricots, alcohol, and mango. The palate is medium-full bodied, sticky, medium carbonation (tiny bubbles), and a long finish. Overall, boring, but well executed.
Cloudy golden, opaque, white head with average retention.
Aroma: bananas, black pepper, some smoky notes.
Taste: sweet with spicy bitterness.
Flavour: ripe apricotes, some sweet alcohol notes, spicy phenols.
Boozy and spicy warming finish.
This is definitely not a classical tripel, but a decent Belgian-style strong ale.
Very good. vinivini (2827) - Gomel, BELARUS - SEP 28, 2017

I picked up this bottle from Amstein the last year. I decided to drink this one the last friday with my wife at home. In my point of view, it is an average tripel, more on the German style than the Belgian school. Best before was at november 2016, the color is a beautiful orange/yellow and troubled body, white foam, normal carbonation. The taste is not so far away of a weizen bock, sweet, malty, a bit bready, strong notes of apricot, I could say fruity, some hop but it is not so bitter, better during the last sips taking more aromas and you have some yeast.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2017 Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of cheese (?), orange peel and hops. Taste of bitter cheese (?) and zest. Another great beer from Nøgne ø. AleRider78 (1411) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2017
Pours a huge frothy off-white head that sticks around for awhile. Has a hazy golden appearance. Nice dirty lacing. Aromas of wheats and grains, light malts, slightly toasty. Flavours are quite strong. Has a sort of smokey like taste, burnt roasted malts. Some citrus hops, hints of pineapple and extremely light banana notes. Very bitter in the finish with mouthfeel and aftertaste. A little off putting with aftertaste. A bit of alcohol comes through, just enough and not offensive. Really good. skortila (5966) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2017
Bottled. 25cl sample. The aroma has some peat, juniper, citrus, cloves. Bit hazy, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, spicy, bit smoked, citric. Nice refreshing and fairly dry. DwarfeD (3540) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2017
50cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice bitter and sweet tones. Smoke, tangerine, spices, caramel, citrus and some spices. Nice. Panzuriel (2333) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2017
