From bottle. Aromas of vanilla and citrus. Pours a hazy pale with white head. The first taste was was quite sweet, but after a few sips it seemed more of a medium sweet. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, quite lively carbonation, a dry finish. Overall a nice beer, but could the carbonation could be toned down somewhat.

I'll have to revisit this one in the future.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 08:58. AROMA: complex aroma with notes of orange and coriander, mixed with spices and a sweet background. very faint hop notes. APPEARANCE: gold color and hazy. large white head with below average retention. poor lacing. TASTE: mix of flavours of spice, oranges and coriander. low bitterness leading into a sweet finish. low alcohol presence. PALATE: medium body with a slight creaminess from alcohol with no obvious warming sensation. high carbonation. OVERALL: a very interesting 8and delicious) variation of a belgian tripel.
