4.38/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a golden/light copper color with two fingers of fluffy, tight head that slowly recedes and leaves a thick lacing on the glass.

Aroma is very fruity and herbal. There is light malt/grain, bread, peaches, apricots, some herbal spicy notes, alcohol, honey and more. Very complex and inviting.

Taste follows the nose and then some. There is bready, light malt up front mixing with peaches and some tart fruits. Midway through the alcohol shows up but it isn't overly hot, it just seems to accentuate everything and balances some of the fruit notes well. Towards the finish honey, raspberries and yeast character take you to the finish which is long, crisp yet sweet and very fruit-centric.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium/low carbonation.

Overall this beer is very complex, strong and drinkable. It possesses the traits of an excellent Triple with a little something extra from very mild spices.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours orangey amber with a large head.
Nose shows spicy phenols and noble hops along with a doughy yeast note and some apple esters. Also a fair whack of malt with caramel and confectionery notes.
Sweet malty flavours, again with a big confectionery character. Some noble hops remain along with a hit of booze. A little cloying.

Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to hoppypocket for this one.

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle, best before 26-12-2017.

Foams a bit out of the bottle, pours a ruddy, leather brown body. Tight foam that's decent. Smell is Belgian candi, taste has much the same but has cinnamon more prominent. Carbonation is lively, good stuff overall.
