I love bourbon, I love beer. Perfect synergistic delight awaits in this bottle. Shared with The Girl today - both loved it. This ménage a trois will be repeated... ---Cheers, Si

Poured from a bomber into a snifter cloudy golden with a thin head. Aroma reminds me of a chardonnay woodsy oaky. Flavor is slightly funky Belgium. Sweetness here nice fruit. Bready but not too much. Balance here. Well done. Definitely an above average abbey tripel.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh) Pours a murky amber. Sweet fruity aroma and taste. Tripels are not my favorite, but this is pretty good for a tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BadAprilia1000 (215) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Pours a nice hazy yellow. Aroma is much like the Allagash Triple Reserve. Basically the same flavor profile but add in some nice vanilla and woody oak undertones. Nice bourbon sweetness added to this as well. Very good beer. Very, very smooth...

Bottled 9-6-13. Very faint smell with hints of bourbon and oak. Taste is a standard malty tripel up front with a nice bourbon finish. Overall very pleasant and enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Clinton hall NYC. Deep orange color with no head. Taste is boozy with a bourbon backbone. Decent tasting tripel. Tastes heavier then the color ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
