Pours a hazy golden orange with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is a delicious candied and dried fruit with subtle hints of vanilla and bourbon. The taste and mouthfeel starts with a light fruity bitterness "pop" on the back of your tongue from the carbonation with a sweet bready malt base. Hints of citrus and apple with mild oak, vanilla, and bourbon on the finish. The presence of alcohol is noticeable with each sip. Overall a very good beer but i was expecting something a bit heavier with more smokey characteristics. Very drinkable for the high ABV.

I would have guessed wine barrels instead of bourbon. Soft, slippery body of a tripel, hazy golden wth full fluffy head. Barrel aging takes over the flavor, adding some sour flavors to the mix. Normal tripel spiciness, floral essences. A tipel with a twist.

Estery just like I like it. I am having trouble finding the barrel flavor except for quick bits that taste mildly and a bit of tannin tartness but I can tell differences from the normal tripel. Super bready while cold which fades to more sweet as it warms. Almost a pilsener level of bread. Which works really well with the banana Belgian flavors. Very good tripel but not worth the 16 for the bottle.

Draft @ Yard House. Very nice "Belgian" aroma. Golden honey color. Nice banana and clove flavor! Great body. Overall, a superb beer!

Sample at Boulevardia. Comes golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of bourbon, fruit, and yeast. Taste is bourbon, fruit, yeast, vanilla, spice, and wood. Very good, perhaps too much bourbon taste.

Probably my favorite Triple! Some good funky yeast flavor that works well with the vanilla bourbon. Way too smooth for 11% ABV so it can be dangerous. I would rate it higher (4.1 probably) but at $22 a bottle it loses some appeal to me since it isnít something I would buy frequently due to its insane price. Not sure if Iím suppose to consider price in my ratings but I do what I want so deal with it. If you donít like how I rate beers boot me off the site like my brother Krompt but keep in mind Iím a non-paying customer to the site who refuses to click on any sidebar advertising so beware the consequences!

This one poured a hazy darker yellow with a white head. Aroma was big Bourbon, oak, yeast and dark fruits. Flavor was big Bourbon upfront, woody, with a nice tripel body pepping ot up. I liked this one

On tap at Whole Foods. Pours a translucent and light copper with a fluffy, tan head that fades to light lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, citric spice, bourbon, vanilla, oak. Flavor is same with banana sweetness, spiciness from yeast and bourbon intensity in the finish. Having had this several times before, Iím more aware of the curious combination of tripel and bourbon. Solid, but certainly curious.

It is as described but not that exciting for our group overall . Very drinkable. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
