Bottle @ The Tin Bucket... Poured golden/bet with an eggshell head. Nice tripel-like Belgian nose along with peaches. Coconut and peaches came through in the flavor. Not much oak. But great Belgian Tripel characters. Definitely worth drinking. Wonderfully Belgian with fruits and yeast spicing and esters. Sweet with a bit of warming alcohol

Cloudy orange and lacy white head. Very fruity smell with bread. Flavor is very sweet. Fruity and hints of lavender. A little too sweet for me.

12/26/13. 750mL bottle. Lightly hazy golden orange pour with a nice off-white head. Light fruity aroma, mostly getting yeast type fruitiness, touches of creamy coconut, peach, apricot, and oak, not much. Sweet flavor, plenty of sugars, the Brett and yeasts haven’t dried this bad boy out quite yet. Some of the oak and fruitiness is there, but I’m mostly getting sweetness. Tasty.

Bottle, enjoyed on Christmas morning. Would have been a better Sumer beer but what can you do? Pours a rich amber, very light white bubbles initially but gone before you know it. Rich and smooth with Belgian flavor spiked with the expected peach, coconut and oak touches. Light Brett notes in the background. Enjoyable stuff.

Poured an amber orange color with aromas of tropical fruit, light coconut, some sweet dough and had some light floral notes. Flavors match the aromas not overly sweet the light peach and coconut is there but you have to search for it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate grain and cereal for the malt, flowers for the hops, and dough for the yeast, with peach and ginger in the background. Head is average size, creamy, white with fair lacing and good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy, medium amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately bittersweet. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, syrupy with a lively carbonation and a a lightly astringent finish. Though over the top in the fruity department this Belgian Strong Ale is in perfect balance.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of fruit and notes of oak. I don’t get any coconut but I do pick up on the peach. Flavor is interesting, lots of fruit notes (tangerine and pineapple predominantly) and the oak character comes through in the finish. Very complex. Abv is well-hidden too. Solid brew!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Eulogy. Cloudy amber pour with a large frothy white head that reduced to a lasting foam and lace. Feels really smooth and mild for such a high ABV. Big tangerine notes. Honey. Marmalade. Figs. Pineapple. Green plums. The coconut only appears at the end. Mostly sweet though the oak tannins add a bit of dryness.
