4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at the brewery with samalito, commonshawn, rosskyle, and dubtully. Beautiful Straffe Hendrik glass. Golden copper color with an impressive and impactful amount of white head. Aroma is spicy with elements of Belgian yeast funk. Taste has sweet characteristics melding well with spicy notes of coriander and hops. Malty backbone serves the beer well giving it a well rounded mouthfeel and finish. An almost white wine quality is coming through. Overall one of the better renditions of this style I’ve tried. Commonshawn is ridiculously excited about this one.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml bottle, Bucharest at Bistro GUXT.
Really nice color, copper-golden, hazy, no visible sediments. The head is rich, white and creamy, persistent, with good lacing.
The aroma is complexe and well balanced: bread, honey, caramel, fruits (mandarines, apricots, bananas, peaches), some spices (coriander and pepper). Hints of hay, some bitterness.
The taste starts sweeter, and then the bitterness matches the sweetness. Really tasty, with the same hints if bread, honey, fruits and spices.
Carbonation is soft, body is "straffe", mouthfeel is creamy and velvety.
An excellent tripel, tasty, well integrated alcohol... what’s not to like?
