look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Presentation: 33cl custom European-style brown bottle, with raised glass stamped "trappist" around the neck.
Appearance: Cloudy pale orange with a nice head! It's got the whole Brussels Lace going on with a creamy, bitty head that sticks a retains with little awakening (swirling in the glass).
Smell: Tart apricot, lemon grass, pepper, pale malts and alcohol all wrapped in a slighly pungent aroma.
Taste: A bit crisp upfront with a slick mouthfeel. Many layers to this brew: fruit (ripe passion/apricot), big burst of spicy alcohol, fresh cut hay flavour, dextrin sweetness, raw honey, yeast and a slight medicinal background flavour. Complex. Very complex.
Notes: The quintessential triple in our humble opinions. An exceptional beer, blissful to taste. Roughly 9% abv.
Serving type: bottle
