Wulfstan's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - NOV 3, 2009
This is decent, but a rather disappointing tripel that I find rather characterless, bland, and dry. It is bright gold, very clear before the sediment makes it hazy. A huge white head shrinks steadily but quickly to a lasting, thin wispy top. It produces a little uneven, foamy lace. The aroma is a lot of grain with light raisin, mineral, bread crust, mineral, a hint of pear and hay, somewhat resembling a pale bock. The taste is up front pear and hay with mineral, slightly raisiny but mostly dry. It soon becomes drier in alcohol with a hint of lemon pulp, but all thin and dry. The finish and aftertaste are dry and thin, tasting of fruit candy without the sweetness. It is one-dimensional and rather bland.

Bosskie (788) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2016
Hay colour, opaque, weak white head. Smell is spicy and salty, white pepper, dried peach, apples and pears, leather, subtle alcoholic sourness. Hint of biscuits, coriander and orange. Taste is fizzy bitter sweet, with a brilliant balance. Warming. Lightly fruity with a lightly bitter refreshing finish.
