Love the complexity. Smell, taste, aftertaste all work so well.

Format: a half-pint amongst others at The Scratch in Milton, Brisbane.

Appearance: pours a vibrant amber with limited fine carbonation. A 1.5 finger off-white head drops slowly to a thin ring.

Aroma: obvious and powerful Belgian yeasts up front with some sweet wheat.

Taste: very sweet toffee malts up front with those wheat and yeast qualities behind. Quite nice, but the sweetness is far too intense.

Aftertaste: and the sweetness lingers for quite a time, becoming a little cloying.

Mouth feel: a medium body with moderate carbonation. Pretty easy drinking other than that massive sweetness.

Overall: not a bad tripel, but far too sweet for my liking. I was surprised to discover that it is at least AU$120 a case - no way in the world.

Floral up front followed by a prickly spice and bready notes with yeasty flavors. Lots of warming alcohol on this one that takes away from the rest of what this brew has going for it. Never the less, this is a nice sipper on a cold evening like tonight. Cheers!

I'm not sure what they put in this, but it gave me hives. I've never had an allergic reaction before. The beer was so fantastic, however, that I finished the last pint before having my girl friend drive up to Walgreens to get me some benadryl.

Good beer. The first one is always a little sharp on my tongue, but still enjoyable.
