Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s a light reddish color with a small head. Sweet and hot Belgian yeasty nose. Pulled toffee, nuts. Sweet apple fruitcake. Similar flavors. Plenty of honeyed bread, pears. More toffee and a bit of burnt brown sugar. Full, somewhat oily. Not bad.

Standard Belgian tripel. Don’t know why they made such a fuss about this beer. Guess it’s all marketing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks Joris for the bottle. Hazy orange brown with yeast flocks floating around. White head. Aroma is malty and vanilla with some hops. Taste is as if it has been Barrel Aged. Lots of vanilla and bourbon, combined with the bitter- and dryness in the end, makes this a special beer.

Bottle. Clear amber color, thin white head. Aroma of yeast, wood and some hop. Flavor is very oaky, sweet and malty. Quite nice. Not really a tripel if you ask me, but still nice.
