On Tap. Soft aromas of vanilla, clove and light bourbon. Bright golden appearance with a thin foam. The age is definitely present on the palate. Light bourbon notes with a strongly balanced herbs, vanilla, belgian yeast, cinnamon and orange peel. The alcohol is there but it kind of hides behind the fruity flavors.

Bottle. Nice smooth flavor. Hints of oak but I didnít get a lot of the bourbon flavor. A little spicyness and some Belgian flavor. Excellent overall.

Aromas of orange, clove and oak. It has an opaque orange color with a fluffy white head. The bourbon really comes through on the taste, which gives it not only the flavor but also a bit of the mouthfeel of bourbon. Itís honestly a touch too harsh on the bourbon for me, but to the beerís credit, it is what it says it is. If you already like Allagash White and youíre also a bourbon fan, this is the beer for you.

Thank you Kerry for the chance to try this fantastic beer.
Pours a hazy yellow with a creamy head of bone white foam that fell luxuriously to a thick ring and left plenty of handsome lace. Body of the beer glows with promise and is the soft pastel color of golden sunshine.
Nose is the definition of complex. Itís sublime with bourbon, oak and tropical fruit to tempt. Thereís a tartness and some mild yeast with a slight breath of alcohol. Picks up some earth as it warms and a touch of pepper. Light banana and clove emerge with a touch of vanilla.
Taste follows the nose and unfolds like a symphony. The ripe fruit is sticky and sweet. Almost candied. The bourbon lays quietly underneath oaky and deep. The alcohol warmth and the pepper bring out the fruits so well. The woody quality and the vanilla accents the malt which is smooth and long and has earthy tones as well. The honey sweetness of the malt and the and the bourbon create a sensual mouthfeel that is strong and a little heavier than the usual tripel. The bourbon lingers int he aftertaste with a hint of smoke and the candied fruit.
This beer continued to unfold throughout the drink and the fruits were varied and splendid. Pear, pineapple, apple, orange, apricot, mango. At one point I beheld coconut. There was a slight sour that gave an immense drinkablility to all the rich sweetness. The buttery smooth malt and the rich bourbon were the perfect compliment and added a depth that resounded. Lingered a touch hot in the aftertaste like bourbon and like sweet candy.
Captivating, expansive and radiant.

It is one outstanding beer that you can be proud to server your best friend, your best client, your boss, or your future father in law. It is a pleasant beer for sipping, tasting, drinking, paring with any and all healthy or unhealthy foods.

Great tripel that is casted in barrels from Jim Beam. Great aftertaste of the fine whiskey. Just a wonderful experience.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum. A cloudy bright honey colored one with a small quickly islandy and sidesticking just off-white head. Smells really nice. Floral with Belgian yeast, grape zest and it has this sweetness thatís hard to put in word. Almost like plums mixed with cucumber, banana, green canned apples and wood. It has a good oily mouthfeel with a gentle prickling carbonation level. Lovely flavors with lots of Belgian yeast, a little alcohol tone - not as much as I thought though and it has this grape/white wine touch written all over it. It also feels kinda gliding in the mouth and really vinous this. Light eastery and fruity tones towards the finish. Perhaps even a little swift of vanilla, but I could honestly not tell that this has been barreled on those barrels it actually has been barreled on. Really liked it though! 21.06.2013
