On tap at the brewery. Pours orange with fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla and coffee. Body is full and slightly crisp. Alcohol, caramel malt, bourbon, vanilla and coffee fill the mouth. Finish is long and peppery. Very nice brew.

Zymurgeist2 (1747) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in San Jose. Coffee grinds dominate aroma. Hazy golden-orange with moderate white head that lingers as a creamy ring. Taste is astringent coffee and baker’s chocolate. Thinish mouthfeel.

RLiddell (111) - Valrico, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a rich golden color with very little head and moderate lacing. Nose is coffee, surprisingly, because the beer is so light in color. The nose also has some very nice bourbon notes. Taste is very rich, coffee and bourbon. Great beer!

bellco33 (686) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Pours hazy golden with a one finger head, This is a weird one but very good. Aroma of coffee, Belgian funk, and cracker malts. Taste is a really nice herbal saison with coffee notes. And the golden color is deceptive. Medium body, really tasty beer.

Lukaduke (2945) - Gray, Maine, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Draft Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a thick two finger foam. Nose is sweet belgian candi sugar,coconut some rustic grain and fresh coffee beans. Palate follows with a mix of sweet tripel notes, soft coffee adds a earthy layer and also quite a bit of complexity but not sure Im quite excited about this final product. Interesting to try just a bit weird and different for me to enjoy it for anything more than a fun exbeeriment. Paired with the right dish I could see this working better just not sure what that dish is...

jflopsu (1161) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Pours a hazy yellow-gold with white head. Has a faint aroma of bourbon, wheat, yeast and hits of coffee. A mix of flavors including citrus, wheat, yeast, spices, a dark alcohol flavor and a hint of coffee at the end - but not overwhelming. Unimpressed with the beer and not as strong as I expected.

Tap at Beer Authority, New York. Colour is cloudy golden with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Coffee, sweetness, alcohol, some fruits and malts. Have to say but I don’t like this at all.
