Bottle shared during the November THT tasting at deanso’s place. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Slightly fruity, grainy malts drenched in tons of strange chemical off-flavors. Chemical notes make everything else impossible to enjoy.

Bottle at almost Dean’s final tasting, but we’ll call it his final tasting anyway. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of chemical fruits with sweetness, flavor of diapers, loads of chemicals, nucleair stuff going on. Really weird.

33cl bottle. Despite all the not-so-great opinions and surprisingly low score I find it unfair since it’s a decent beer. Maybe the other batches went infected or who knows what. Fresh aroma of pepper, lemon zest, a bit of cat piss but not off, white cheese, grains. Well carbonated but not over. Watery and creamy body. Dry with grains, soms little spiciness and good balanced herbal/spicy bitterness. Not a bad brew for refreshment ...I drink it at a proper , warm weather.

I don´t like tripels but this one is not bad. There is nothing special about it but also nothing wrong with it. Nice beige head that slowly disappears to keep just a little. Hazy golden. Cannot say anything specific about taste, cannot feel anything. But for a triple it is not bad :-)
