3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. Hazy pale yellow color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste sweetness, some alcohol, slightly hops, some bourbon for sure, slightly vanilla. Interesting, but to me it once more proves barrel aging doesn’t really work with tripels.
