Aroma is sour and citrus, and a little boozey. Appearance is golden, cloudy, minimal head. Taste is sour with a full taste of bourbon. Palate, body is medium, texture a little thick and oily, flat of carbonation, finish is long. Overall an excellent beer I would recommend to anybody!

growler6 (123) - Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 15, 2016
Bottled February 2016. The vanilla, banana, coconut and clove aromas are consistent from pour to swallow and the 11% alcohol is warming and well hidden; kudos. A bit sweet but it finishes abruptly and cleanly. True to the style there is a bubbly light mouthfeel however there is slightly soapy texture (if you were a kid back in the day and you said something you weren’t supposed to, you know what I mean). Excellent but a bit expensive. Next time I think I will pair it with food.

8 oz draft. Slightly hazy orange color with a very small bubbly white head. Aromas of funk, spice, yeast, a hint of alcohol, various fruits. Banana and apricot, spices, peppery, a bit of bourbon on the finish. Medium body, effervescent and slick mouthfeel.

ciocanelu (1134) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 8, 2016
Slightly hazy pale color with white head. Aroma is floral and perfumey with a touch of bourbon. Taste starts like a typical Belgian tripel, yeasty and sweet but on the aftertaste you get the bourbon barrel. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad at all but I think the flavors don’t combine as well as expected.

Sparf (226) - Östersund, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2016
Mycket trevlig arom fylld med jästiga estrar, pepprig krydda, lite alkohol, vanilj och kokos men helt utan sötma. Grumligt gyllene brygd och ett litet men stadigt och tätt skum med lång halveringstid. Smaken är överraskande söt och därtill med inslag av säd och en rejäl alkoholdos. Vaniljen återkommer och lyfter nu fram fattonerna av ek och en aning ljus frukt. Kroppen är halvfyllig, och vätskan har en oljig viskositet. Fint avvägd kolsyra. I eftersmaken växer en mild beska fram, parad med en något otrevlig syra. En oväntat ljus och därtill mycket bra komposition.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for the fucking book. The pour is a darker golden yellow color with a thick white head that falls down to a cap leaving a good soapy lace. The aroma is not too bad. There is a nice banana and spice blend up front with a decent yeastiness on the back end. It’s pretty plain and light, and there isn’t any barrel here. The flavor is, well, not good. There is a permanent marker, spice, yeasty bit happening with a metallic malt and a light bourbon. It’s also quite woody. This is better than the first time I had it, but not good. The mouth feel is a little heavy with a soft carbonation and a spicy bourbon barrel and yeast on the finish. I’m not a fan of this at all. Tripels can blow me.

ebone1988 (1311) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20. For the book. Aroma is funk, wet grass, barnyard, slight banana, maybe a little woody. Appearance is darker golden, off white head, hazy. Taste is woody, spice, funk, banana, bourbon, barnyard, permanent marker. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, dry, woody metallic aftertaste. Overall, better than I remember but still not good.

rentonj7 (207) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Very big beer. Takes the balance right out of the Tripel with punches of coconut and vanilla. Still extremely smooth, but the flavor profile is much more in your face. Strong boozy notes, but lends a warming smoothness.

Alpha10 (595) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
2016/06/18 - Pours a hazy deep gold colour with a thick, foamy white head that lingers and leaves ample lacing. Aroma is yeast, wheat, banana, bubblegum, tart pear, lightly spicy hops, oaky-vanilla, honey and a hint of bourbon. Taste follows nose; pear, honey, citrus and light spicy hops up front, followed by wheat, oaky-vanilla and bourbon. Mouthfeel is medium to full and silky with soft carbonation and a moderately sweet, boozy, slightly warming finish. Smooth, balanced, mellow, delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
