DocLock (9365) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Draft at Craft. Hazy gold pour with white head. Nose was malt, hops, woody spirits, mint. Tasted like a tripel with some mint added and more oaky whisky as it warmed. Decent.

onceblind (6696) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2012
At 2012 Avery Strong Ale Fest. Hazy dark golden with a thick pillowy head. Aroma is interesting mix of Belgian light fruitiness and dry tart mint with a touch of pale grains and dusty yeastiness. Flavor is crisp and full, with notes of cereal grains, dusty yeast, light Belgian malty fruitiness, and a touch of bubblegum and toast, and a light mint essence.

vyvvy (5381) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Sampled at Perennial’s Midwest Belgian Beer Festival - This was definitely a different take on a tripel. Pours hazy dark orange with a white head. The aroma has lots of mint, barrel aged whiskey taste, heavy malt and an odd muddled flavor - very interesting. It has a medium / ful body that is very rich with mild carbonation. The flavor starts with bourbon, heavy malt and lots of fresh crisp mint. The finish is very minty and malty. Interesting and enjoyable, but not sure I’d want a very large portion at a time.

GenDV138 (5277) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2016
4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Clear golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of mint and herbs. Tastes of mint, caramel, light herbs and spices. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Interesting combo. Mintiness reminds me of the dentist.

RobertDale (5102) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 3, 2013
On tap. Comes a slightly cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma of mint and more mint. Taste is dominated by the peppermint leaves added. Not enough of the Belgian comes through for my taste.
