Bebum (764) - USA - MAY 13, 2016
Clear, light amber, little lace. Intriguing nose. Full body, intensely flavored, big mouthfeel, hot and silky, nicely carbonated, long and flavorful aftertaste. Sweetish, bitter, crisp. Very minty, malty, maple. Very original, great tasting, I'm sure soon there will be imitations. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - SEP 29, 2013
On tap at KC Beer Fest 2013, solid and interesting with a predominant, yet harmonious layer of mint overshadowing the warm, slightly spicy tones of the beer and barrel, would like to try this with the mint dialed way back

theisti (3880) - Kansas, USA - MAY 6, 2013
12 oz tulip draft at Martin City Brewing Company in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a hazed darker golden with a well formed one inch white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is a pleasant mix of fresh mint, Bourbon barrel and the straw earthy sweet of the base Tripel. All aromas play nicely together, well integrated. The taste is equal parts big mint and big Bourbon. The base Tripel is present, though certainly below the mint and Bourbon. The palate is medium bodied, with a warming alcohol mint finish. Boulevard certainly nailed the mint Julep on this one.

Pours hazy dark gold. Aroma is honey, booze, mint, and oak. Taste reflects the same and finishes spicy with heavy oak and booze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of peppermint, some funky notes, vanilla, oak, and peppery Belgian character. Flavor of peppermint, spicy Belgian yeast, vanilla and candi sugar and tropical fruits.

vyvvy (5855) - 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.

Beachmaster (452) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 7, 2016
On draught. Pours a hazy amber, with a moderate white head. Nose is peppermint candy. Taste follows. Lots of peppermint flavor, with a slightly boozy finish. Not bad as a novelty.

snoworsummer (4676) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Draft at the Gnarly Barley. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like booze, mint, lemon/lime citrus, and woody malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like mint, lime, sugar, and bourbon.

luttonm (4612) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Chuck’s CD, Seattle. Heavy, red-tinged gold, clear. Small foam. Intense menthol, mint, alcohol very present. Not bad. Toffee, christmas-like candy. Anise, biscotti. Heavy, thick. Very interesting, unique, glad I tried it but not for me. Interesting that this beer draws so many opinions ... you seem to love it or hate it (unless you’re me, and you’re firmly in the middle).
