3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting beer, a Triple would not be the first beer I would think of for barrel-aging. The result for this beer is mixed. At first I found it interesting, but it got much better as it warmed up. The bourbon comes across especially strong in the aftertaste. Yeast taste is covered up by warmth of the bourbon. In some ways it tastes like bourbon with a thicker, fuller mouthfeel. Not a bad experiment, but not sure if I’d try it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
March 2014 bottling. Pours a hazy yellow with a medium sized white sudsy head. Aroma of sweet malts, wood, bourbon, sugar, caramel. Taste follows the nose with some vanilla in it. Medium body, solid carb, and decent bitterness mixed with the sweetness. Overall decent brew.

Beer Bloggers Conference - San Diego - Big yeast aroma and flavor. Nice tripel flavors. I was impressed with the barrel aging.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Burial Brewing in Asheville, this pours a hazy golden into the glass, with a wispy head that leaves light soap lacing. The nose has esters and melon. Flavors of yeasty esters, melon, honey, light alcohol and Candi sugars, finishing with a curt touch of whiskey bite. The body is full and feels substantial in the mouth. An interesting take on the tripel, indeed, but it works. Big brew here.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled. Pale golden color. White head, noticeable lacing. Aroma is surprisingly sour with an oaky character. Flavor is banana, clove, vanilla oaky quality really shines through. Awesome beer.

Draft. Hazy yellow. Big vanilla notes and bourbon with spice and oak. Rich alcohol on the finish. A very complex tripel with a lot of barrel character. First time I've had this on tap. Wow!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a medium sized white head. Low on flavour, sticky sugars, alcohol, vanilla, light wood. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. At bit watery and uninteresting despite the barrel ageing. The finish is hot and raw.

Belgian fruity aroma. Surprised to get the vanilla taste in such a light beer. It's really good.
