look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a yellow golden color into a tulip glass. Smaller head but good amount of carbonation. Medium lacing.

Fruity aroma and a little sweet.

Taste was reflective of the smell, with the sweet just ahead of the fruits, but a nice blend of the two.

Felt good in the mouth, although more carbonation than you typically find in a tripel.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2

Beer poured from 33 cL bottle into wine glass at 17 ˚C.

A - Nice color, but the head vanishes too fast.

S - Not good, it smells like detergent, chemical flower smell.

T - Notest of basil, if you close your nose it doesn't taste that bad, maybe even "average".

M - Well carbonated, the high carbonation goes nice with the relatively fresh taste.

O - This is not a very good beer, that's probably because of the herbs used in it. If you're a fan of beers with herbs you might like it, but I don't.

Bottle from Ramstein Exchange. Pours orange/gold with silky white head. Buttery aroma, toffee, butterscotch.tase is more of the same, smooth, slick mouthfeel. This is a nice one.
