Keg at Mikkeller Viktoriagade, 02/03/14. Lightly hazed golden with moderate off white spotting that clears to nothing. Nose is subtle smoke, bitter orange, citric fruit peel, spice, caramel, prunes, dates. Taste comprises punchy citric notes, candied orange peel, clove, fruit cake mix, very subtle smoke, bitter tropical tang. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying closure. Not getting much in the way of smoke, perhaps a good thing for the style, solid enough fayre none the less.

Weird beer, kind of smoky, a little spicy. Not something I want to drink lots of but fine in small doses.

An interesting tripel. Nose is smoke and spices, taste follows the same pattern. Good body, some alcohol taste. Smoke permeates and comes to the front, with a nice spicy alcoholic kick following. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Milltown - thanks, Ethan! Interesting variation on (I assume) Allagash’s base tripel. Cloudy gold pour with plenty carb, and a ripe, raw look to it. Certainly quite yeasty in the nose too, along with prominent spice and quite mild smoke (from smoked grain? smoked malt?). Almost like the tripel with a quarter traditional ale blended in or something, a modest addition to a solid beer. But the overall impression is that some of the tripel’s quality is docked, while it’s not fully realized as a trad or a smoked.

Wanted to do a half pour, but Leon’s wasn’t having it, so I gave half away to my server. Perhaps I will be rewarded with some beer karma. Pours barely darker than a lager with good head and lacing. The scent of cloves permeates your nostrils like you have just walked into mountain antique shop. The sweet, bitter, and spiciness blend together well in this very original brew. Draft - Leon’s Full Service - Decatur, GA

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2013
From tap @Mikkeller & Friends. Unclear yellow golden body. Small white head. Spicy, light sourish-sweet fruit aroma. Grassy notes and a whiff of smoke. Faint smoky flavor, paired with a fine fruitiness and some sweet-accenteted malts. Well-bodied. Light sweet and hop-bitter finish. Nicely balanaced and very tasty. [26.03.13

emacgee (4112) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2013
Pours a pretty clean soft straw yellow with two fingers of dense white head. Nose shows soft stone fruits and some spicy esters. Smoke plays a moderate role here and definitely shows itself in the flavor and aroma, not over the top though. A soft malty sweetness and spicy yeast character balance and compliment the smoke well. Light bodied and dry with a slightly zesty quality.

On tap at Mikkeller and Friends’ Grand Opening. Pours a clear golden with no head. Sweet and dry. Aromas of pale malts and smoked malts. No carbonation. Medium to full bodied. A smokey Tripel?
