zizzybalubba (1392) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2014
750 mL bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA (bottled February 7, 2014). Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of light citrus, Belgian candi sugar, and a hint of oak. The bourbon barrel aging lends an extra layer of complexity as the vanilla and oak share the stage with the orange peel and sweetness reserved for the base tripel beer. The finish provides warmth from both the high ABV as well as the flavors. Pricey, but a great beer.

gEUS (1001) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle at Quintessence 2014 - Pours deep yellow with a decent off-white head. Nose is sweet malts, vanilla a bit and some yeast residu (a bit as with Westmalle Tripel). Very sweet body.

77ships (3592) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2014
75 cl. bottle sampled @ Cantillon Quintessence 2014. Orange with a creamy white head. Nose smells heavily of brett, olives, thick soy sauce, fish guts and grains, all over the place to say the least. Taste sweet upfront, sugary with malts, leading into brett, fish guts, sweet vanilla, alcoholic and woody. Body is quite nice, creamy, yeasty with nice carbonation but the beer is all over the place to say the very least. The more I drank of it the less I liked it and a lot of the flavours were a real mismatch of everything.

On draft. I was expecting a stronger nose, but the flavor is intense yet subtle...not sure if that makes sense. Notes of bourbon, vanilla, apple, sugar. Warming sensation, but would not have guessed 11%. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
