Brilliant beer. Flavorful, aromatic, wonderful finish. And strong to boot. Don’t pass on the opportunity to sample this gem of a brew.

Drought. Cloudy yellow with creamy light beige head, slight citrus aroma, low carbonation, spicy taste (cinnamon?), very subtle bourbon at the background, medium finish. An exquisite taste!

Sample @Quintessence 2014.
Arôme alcool bourbon sur des notes de maïs très liquoreux sans être sirupeux, rond sans être sucré. On reçoit d’abord l’acidité, et puis les arômes alcooliques sur forme de grain de maïs qui arrivent en arrière goût et finissent sur une amertume surette. Le corps malté est plutôt onctueux voire doucereux, développant des arômes légers de caramel boisé et acidulé. Pesant mais peu amer avec une fin surette. Bien balancé!

Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2014
Bourbon-matured beer since 2004, tasted in the later version of 11% ABV. Regular, off-white, not very stable head, colour clear orange blonde. Interesting aroma of pineapple, honey, white grapes, cider, banana, pepper and obvious but not overpowering bourbon. Soft fruity taste with mild carbonation, bit vinous, some candi sugar, sweetish caramel malts, spicy and woody accents, finish warm alcohol (generating a dryish effect) and aromatic hops, but the sweetness from the onset also lingers. Closer to a Belgian-style barley wine than a real triple.

Pours cloudy gold w/ not much head or lacing. Aroma is very full of fruit & spice. Taste is complex w/ fruit & spice while being exceptionally smooth w/ the 11% abv. Very good!

I would have guessed wine barrels instead of bourbon. Soft, slippery body of a tripel, hazy golden wth full fluffy head. Barrel aging takes over the flavor, adding some sour flavors to the mix. Normal tripel spiciness, floral essences. A tipel with a twist.

Xenon (84) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Estery just like I like it. I am having trouble finding the barrel flavor except for quick bits that taste mildly and a bit of tannin tartness but I can tell differences from the normal tripel. Super bready while cold which fades to more sweet as it warms. Almost a pilsener level of bread. Which works really well with the banana Belgian flavors. Very good tripel but not worth the 16 for the bottle.

Draft @ Yard House. Very nice "Belgian" aroma. Golden honey color. Nice banana and clove flavor! Great body. Overall, a superb beer!
