Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate herbal, yeast and green apple aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium complex yeast bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with an above average for style brew.

750 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99 and the group if they show. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head after foaming out of the bottle (I’m going to stop opening these damn things). The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, green apple, Brett, some alcohol with a big dose of wood. Tasty stuff. Thanks to kbudd19 for the bottle.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle, shared at Tmoney99’s 10K tasting. Hazy orange color. Little white head. Couple loose bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Lighter carbonation, very dry texture. Very spicy bite to this. Kind of sweet, with some alcohol burn. Some orange, citrus, acidic aromas. belgian yeast. Interesting, but not crazy about this one. Longer kind of citric brandy barrel taste. Grows on me as it goes. Good long aftertaste.

750 ml bottle to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks semi-transparent orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells tart and oaky with notes of cider. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. Good beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle at a Trou du Diable barrel-aged tasting at Volo, served in a stem glass. Pours clear orange with a few bubbles but no head. The nose has notes of sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, toasted oak and subtle tripel spice. The flavour is moderately sweet with caramel, brown sugar, oak barrel, Belgian spice. The finish is long and malty with Belgian spice along with subtle apple notes. On the palate, medium in body with a smooth milky texture and minimal carbonation. Overall a great barrel aged Belgian-style ale. Delicious. 2013-05-25

Bottle thanks to my Canadian friend Mark, who muled some Surly north of the border and returned with this beauty. Bottle gushed just a bit when opened. Hazy dark amber pour with a white head. Stone fruit nose with some funk. This is a real boozer in the taste, with a nice heat in the aftertaste. Full mouthfeel, slightly sweet malty that moves into a plethora of fruits, straw and finishing just a bit bitter with a nice heat. Really nice.

Darkish yellow with a pale head. Aroma is brett, pear, apricot, dried fruits. Medium bodied, sweet and sour on the palate, great balance. Taste is citrus peel, dried peach, dried pear, apricot. Much nicer than the regular version.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite the beer, but I think I prefer the regular. The barrel certainly changes this. Nice apple finish. Pours orange clear without much head or lacing. Barrel is very prominent and dominates aroma. A little boozy as well. Some sweet malt as well and light perfume. Bottle at Volo for Zwanze Day.
