3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange color with small white head. Flowery grains, some spicy Belgian yeasts, some sugary Bourbon wood. Taste is sweet, grainy, flowery, boozy, a bit of a burn, surprisingly low carbonation. Certainly a good beer, nice Barrel character which is not too strong, but does not live up to its reputation.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color quite some foam. The smell has a boozy touch and a lot of whisky nose but with a fresh touch. The taste is very actively carbonated and has its yeasty and sweet malty character, but still got an underlying whisky note that becomes stronger in the aftertaste and carries a boozy note through the whole beer taste. A little heavy, but definitely a good beer.

Pours a hazy gold. Aroma is slightly lacking, not a huge amount on it. Flavor is bourbon soaked caramelized bananas. Pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Mildly hazy straw colored body, thin white head with poor retention.
Aroma: Very light, hints of tart citrus with light bourbon and coconut.
Taste: Odd but enjoyable, very balanced mix of grapefruit, lemon and orange with coconut and bourbon on the finish.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Good beer, I enjoy the balance, but the flavors clash.

As close to perfect as you can get. I figured this brew to be a quad or Belgian Strong Ale. Very rich and complex flavor and high end of the spectrum malt / gravity experience and mouth feel. This is a tremendous blonde strong ale with a sophisticated complexity created by layering in oak whiskey barrels. One of my favorites all time!

Wonder bourbon and smoked wood in the nose. Slightly yeasty with strong bourbon and wood flavors. Wonderful stuff. Must. Buy. More.
