Maybe I just hit lucky with the timing - drank this at home on Xmas Eve - was given to me as a present. Quite simply, it was stunning - I can’t fault anything whatsoever about this beer - as close to beer nirvana as you’ll find. Get yourself a bottle as my words simply won’t do it justice....

A pretty nice offering....good blend of Beligan yeast, oak, vanilla, candy sugar, some dark fruit. Medium bodied with a slight booze burn. Good stuff.

At Rockwells. Quite complex. Sweeter than some other tripel due to strength. Barrel aging adds boozeyness. Serving: Tap

Bottling January 29. 2015. Belle robe dorée et impeccable tête avec une dentelle. Le nez révèle des parfums de pain mielleux, de fruits jaunes, de noix de coco, de vanille et d’épices. L’alcool et sa présence enveloppante rappelle les plus grandes du style. En bouche, le bourbon complimente les saveurs de base. Un bel équilibre puis-je dire. Au palais, le plaisir est réel. Le pétillement confortable et le corps douillet rendent l’expérience des plus agréables. En finale, j’aperçois des notes douces balancées par un alcool chaleureux et fruité.

JDBaker11058 (1538) - Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Appearance: slightly opaque golden, with a short, creamy white head and slightly syrupy legs. Aroma: belgian yeast character is strong, followed by booze, vanilla, some citrus, and pie crust. Taste: bourbon, vanilla, lemon, light banana, tamarind, maybe even some coconut, with prominent yeast. Finish: most flavors fade except for vanilla, bourbon, and yeast, then a mild astringency comes out. Notes: Beers this hyped seldom seem up to it. This was a very good, very creative beer. Glad to have tried it. Alcohol was well-hidden. Bottled 21 March 2014, had in early June 2015. Bottle from Westover Market in Arlington, Virginia.

SinH4 (1066) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Hazy orange color with small white head. Flowery grains, some spicy Belgian yeasts, some sugary Bourbon wood. Taste is sweet, grainy, flowery, boozy, a bit of a burn, surprisingly low carbonation. Certainly a good beer, nice Barrel character which is not too strong, but does not live up to its reputation.

King_Alex_II (623) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Golden color quite some foam. The smell has a boozy touch and a lot of whisky nose but with a fresh touch. The taste is very actively carbonated and has its yeasty and sweet malty character, but still got an underlying whisky note that becomes stronger in the aftertaste and carries a boozy note through the whole beer taste. A little heavy, but definitely a good beer.

Pours a hazy gold. Aroma is slightly lacking, not a huge amount on it. Flavor is bourbon soaked caramelized bananas. Pretty tasty.

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat, yeast, vanilla, oak, floral and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm, wheat, yeasty, vanilla and oak finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft
