Utah

4.1/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

33 cl bottle from the Utah sytem poured into my beer goblet. For what it is worth, the 2 and the 10 are notched on the back label, a dating system to be sure, but I cannot figure it out.

Appearance: Ugly yeast floaties, but a beautiful two fingered head sit on top of a slightly hazy golden beer. There is a huge amount of effervescence coming off this beer which adds to the rocky white head and dancing floaties. This beer has some nice lacing, would score a five but for the floaties.

Smell: Carbon dioxide tartness at first. Fruity easters, mild clove like spicyness add to an overall yeasty nose. Hay, grass and herbal characteristics also mix in nicely.

Taste: The taste really follows the nose. A soft stone fruit note dances along with a mild hop bitterness. The yeast and thier phenols are the main player here. This is a full flavored beer.

Mouthfeel: The body is middle approaching full. The carbonation is strong but not harsh. (If you close your mouth before swallowing, you can hear the carbonation pop in your ears.) The flavors have no trouble coating the mouth in his full flavored beer.

Overall: This is a solid example of the style no doubt. I am glad to have tried it. But for the coast this could be a more common beer for me. I simply like other choices (even local ones) a little more for my beer dollar. Would have no trouble recommending this, as long as I warned the consumer about the floaties.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Got it in Hungary.

A - Creamy big white foam, lasting minute or two, but leaving one mm. on top. Medium carbonation. Light golden color.
S - Floral, typically Belgian tripel smell, but weak. Warm, fresh..
T/M - So carbonated ! Warm. Almost can't feel nothing more from carbonation and warming.
Low bitterness, again some floral aroma's.

O - This is not my style, don't like strong beers, without strong aroma's.
