3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy straw color with white head, but not much of it. I was hoping for so much more on the aroma, Iím not getting anything really upfront, but faintness of vanilla, honey, citrus. The flavor is interesting, very mellow, somewhat sweet, definitely picking up notes from the bourbon barrel. I taste almost no presence of the 11% ABV, except some warming and starting to feel it as its more than half way gone, but its not on the tongue. Overall a nice Tripel, just wished there was a little but more on the nose and tastebuds, but still well balanced.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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. Overall, this caught me off guard. I donít know what I was expecting, but this wasnít it. Not to say that this isnít delicious. I just didnít expect it to be so smooth and well balanced. The alcohol is there but it kind of hides behind the fruity flavors. Iíd give this an A rating.

Light bodied and oh so sweet. Reminded me of a triple with a dose of honey or sugar. Really tastes more sweet than sour surprisingly. On tap. Not terrible. Great appearance, ok taste

Draft. Pours hazy dark gold. Tastes sweet, dry, like alcohol, caramel, molasses. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells like wheat, citrus, grapes, fermentation.

On tap at Unoís Hamilton during Philly Beer Week. An excellent American-made Trippel with nice barrel aged vanilla and oak notes. Always loved this one.

From bottle to tulip. Aroma of sweet grain and perfume. Pours a hazy orange with white head. As it warmed, aroma picked up some vanilla from the barrels which was very nice. Citrus and bread flavor with slight astringency.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that dissipates to light ring of lacy head. Aroma of yeast, vanilla, oak, citrus, odd mix. Tastes like a saison with vanilla and oak over the citrus and yeast. Weird, good, slight boozy burn on the way down but deceptive.
