MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This Barrel-Aged Tripel develops enticing banana esters, pineapple angles and wooden sturdiness before laying down white grapes onto the rich mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the hazy blond.
-This feels sweeter and more intense than your average Tripel.
-Hops are also a touch herbal.
-This was a 1-day old keg. Almost too fresh. ;)
-Looking forward to having this in bottles. Higher carbonation would probably do wonders to it.

On tap at Winter Warmer Montreal.

SlovakSniper (3173) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2014
Cette bouteille renferme un liquide voilé et doré. Au versement, il se forme une couronne de mousse. Quelques traces collées tentent de se tisser sur la paroi de mon verre. Dans ce nez, il y a des arômes boisés, du vin blanc et des fruits jaunes. Dans ma bouche, il n’y a que des saveurs sèches, bien serrées, aigrelettes et acidulées. Au palais, j’ai l’impression d’un corps de moyenne densité avec une gazéification et une texture confortable. En finale, tout est bien sec, fruité et boisé. Facile à boire. J’ai bien aimé son acidité. Dans une autre perspective, trop dispendieuse.

Eructoblaster (3024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle - 500ml. Beautiful cloudy golden body with an average white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with yeasty, vineous, woody, and flowery hints. Alcohol is subtle. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, woody, vineous, yeasty, and herbal notes. Ends with a long, moderately warming, bitter/herbal finish. Interesting.

probstblueribbon (2919) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
500 mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha served cool in a tulip glass. Clear deep golden with a thin white head. Strong citrus and earthy coriander, quite a zippy triple, some white wine and white grape character, yeast and bread dough, nice Belgian character...esters, quite a bit more butter chardonnay character as it warms, an interesting and appropriate pairing. Medium body with fairly loose effervescence. Quite a bit of white wine character, nice citrus and bread dough, spicy, alcoholic, like a glass of wine with some fairly strong Belgian character, a good match; dry with light tartness and a long white wine and lightly Belgian ester finish. Once again, a good pairing.

Bottle (500 ml). Shared by Minderbinder, thanks! Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head, good retention and nice lacing. Aroma is of white wine, yeast, oak, hints of sweetness and tropical fruits. Taste is moderately sweet and yeasty with white wine, malt, tropical fruits and a slight herbal finish. Medium body (a tad weak for that kind of beer though). Moderate carbonation. Winey mouthfeel. Well done! Nice barrel treatment, which is hiding some aspects of the base beer, but not enough to be a problem. Enjoyable!
