3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells amazing, bretty, funky, fruity with some belgian yeast. Hazy yellow. Tastes nice, upfront bretty funk, followed by woody/astringent notes and sweetness, belgian yeast/cloves and a light sweetness/hoppyness. Alcohol well hidden. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Yellow plums not overly evident, may contribute to the tang this one punches. Quite nice, not not completely put together/possibly could use some aging.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tripels are hard to drink. This is not hard to drink. Thus, this is not a triple. Hazy straw-orange body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Light plum, musty barn, soft grains, wet hay, light lacto, soft bready yeasts. Tilquin Quetsche meets something like a good natch of Fantome. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, lively acidity, finish lingers a bit with just a touch of sweetness.

On tap @ the brewpub, listed as 10%. Cloudy orange-gold. Very funky nose, lightly sour, fruity undertones. Tart plum skins, deep barnyard funk, lightly estery. Would never peg this as a tripel, this is all farmhouse! And so drinkable at 10%, waaaaat! Loved it.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 version on draft. Hazy apricot nectar with a faint white head that doesn’t last long. Nose is amazingly complex, smoky brett, tart yellow plum, stone fruit, honey, vanilla-oak, apricot, preserved lemon. Lightly tart with a barnyard finish. Full bodied, with average carbonation. Light mouthfeel, long and lingering finish. Intense and tasty, happy with a sample sized serving.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
VERSION 2 - aged over a year on brett then four months on yellow plums - holyfuck amazing. I would rush your Toronto ass down here to enjoy this exceptional batch, very plummy/apricot-y and the brett sets it off really well. Insanely integrated Fuzzy gold-orange-green color. And I thought I was over Tripels like disco.

Bottle from September 2012.
Smells of plum, grape and oak.
Orange with a lasting fluffy white head.
Good carbonation and refreshing tartness. Tastes like a nice tripel with all its fruit but with a fine balance of tart up front. Finishes slightly sweet and spritzy. Some alcohol warmth. Great stuff.

Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks a lot sir! Pours a nice and dark golden with a medium white head that leaves really good lacing. Aroma is of dusty brett, yellow fruits and alcohol. Phenolic but not too intense. Taste is sweet and fruity, lightly tart. Sweet dessert wine notes all over. Carbonation was high, body was medium. Really nice stuff!
