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.

Dry plum, grape, apricot tart, hints of yeast and oak, gentle funky sour finish. Dangerously highly drinkable, another outstanding Bellwoods creation.

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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (650 ml). From johnsense, thanks! Slightly hazy golden with a huge white head, decent retention and good lacing. Aroma is mostly of wine (Pinot Noir) with brettanomyces, oak, subdued plums and Belgian yeast. Taste is also very winey with a nice moderate malt sweetness, brettanomyces oak, yeast and hints of plums. Alcohol is extremely well hidden. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Winey mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. In a blind tasting, I probably wouldn’t be able to say that the base beer is a Tripel, but I could easily recognize that this is an extremely nice barrle-aged Belgian beer. Super tasty. Nice barrel treatment. Loved it.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber golden color. Amazing lactic nose with oak, vanilla, creamy, moderately sour. Some marmalade pops its nose out. Amazing nose. Wow. Hoppier mouth than expected, not so intense, oak, creamy, tons of malt, soo well balanced. Has to be Chardonnay barrels. Oak shines. Drinks amazingly light for 10%. Superb.
