Pours clear amber from a 750 cc bottle. Aroma is coriander, vanilla, and sweet malt. The flavour delivers what the nose promises with mild hops and subtle sour notes. Well balanced. Wow I love the bourbon barrel infusion!

jflopsu (1016) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2016
Pours a bright hazy yellow with thick white head. A unique aroma of wheat, yeast, citrus, and hints of bourbon. A strong taste mostly of wheat, yeast, citrus, vanilla, and spices - but just a hint of bourbon on the back. A dry yeast and grain aftertaste.

IndianaRed (3425) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 22, 2016
Bottle shared by PinkZambia Clear straw color. Nicely muted Belgian yeast flavors and a touch of oak and barely a hint of the bourbon. Seems to mellow everything out. Very drinkable and tasty.

kerenmk (3804) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 15, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting at our place. Thanks Yael Tamuz for the bottle! Hazy amber with a white film. Some vanilla, black pepper, peach, hints of wood and lots of yeast in the nose, bitter, alcoholic, but delicately so, then sweet. Full-bodied and complex, interesting, hints of sweetness in the finish.

bellco33 (627) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - APR 13, 2016
Poured into sample glass at brewery: Pours golden with a decent white head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, sugar, vanilla, and booze. Taste is more of the same, really sweet. Heavy body, too much booze and residual sugar. Not great but not bad for a bourbon aged triple. I was expecting worse.

tomer (2668) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 31, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, small creamy head, very cloudy orange color with yellow taints, bourbon aroma with vanila, slightly charred wood and sour bread, a bit alcoholic, flavor of bourbon, vanila, coconut and wood with a hint of nuts and alcohol, not too heavy for the ABV. Nice but a bit too bourbony.

yourilevesque (1063) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2016
Un bière qui appartient à un style qui ne me plaît habituellement pas. Celle-ci par contre, c’est autre chose! Blonde, dorée, profonde, mousseuse et vivante. Le simple fait de la contempler me met en joie! Très chênue, notes vineuses, beaucoup de pomme verte, un important baril et des notes alcoolisées d’un bourbon chaud assumées. Très facile à boire malgré un sucre résiduel important, il faut se méfier de ce look gai et invitant qui monte rapidement à la tête...

DSG (10542) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Bottled 1/14. 11%. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, cookies, fruitiness, malt, caramel, and an alcohol note. Sweet flavor with bourbon, vanilla, some fruitiness, caramel, a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied, rounded. Nice.

Aromas of apples, dough, honey. Taste is sweet with subtle tartness. Very enjoyable.

Slubgob (282) - West Hartford, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Pours hazy golden, lingering white head. Sweet nose, I’ll accept the suggestion that it’s bourbon, otherwise I’d suggest it’s high alcohol malt sweetness. Easy in the mouth, bourbon predominates. Low to moderate carbonation. Finishes a bit sweet, bare hops. Essentially, it comes off as a boiler maker made with good ingredients.
