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.

Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Festival. Pours a hazy dark golden color with white head. Minty, bourbon, wood, alcohol flavors. Tastes like a beer to enjoy on Christmas.

Draft. Aroma of peppermint, faint bourbon and tropical fruit, honeyish sweetness, wood and light citrus in the background. Very unusual combination of traits here. Hazy light golden amber color, head is very fine and slight. Flavor profile is lightly minty throughout, luckily not more so, some faint whiskey and alcohol becoming apparent about midpoint, then seeing the more expected malty sweetness, wood and fruit character appearing late, and finishing warm and smooth. Very low in effervescence, body is certainly full enough. Better than anticipated, to be quite honest. I think this is due to the mint being very much present and detectable, but not overwhelming, and the balance seems like it would be tough to pull off. Definitely not something I would order regularly, though, even if given the chance to. Thanks to Boulevard for the chance to try this outside of the brewery!

Lots of spice. Dark straw. Pretty tart. There is a strong flavor of something I can?t recognize...ah yes, mint. Midwest Belgian beer fest.

onceblind (4078) - 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.

Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Cloudy, dark golden appearance with a white head. Minty, spicy Belgian yeasty, a touch boozy, citrusy, light whiskey aroma. Tangy, organic, spicy/minty, orange citrusy, a bit spicy yeasty, somewhat boozy/whiskey flavor. Kind of seemed all over the place.

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.
