3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the 2013 Barrel-Aged Blackout Release Party on 1/21/13. Hazy orange pour with a medium off-white head. Malty nose with notes of orange, honey, and citrusy sourness. Malty and sweet flavor with some citrusy sourness before a dank, wet cardboard finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap, BCTC 2010. Pours a murky copper orange body with a small wispy white head. The nose is fairly alcoholic, smells of bourbon possibly? Some light Belgian Triple yeastiness, lots of cereal grains, and touches of oak and light spice. The flavor comes across as a bourbon barrel Triple much more than anything that ought to have Lambic in the name. Rather thick and overly sweet with fizzy carbonation. Nothing lambic about this one at all. Not a whole lot of ’wildness’ to this even.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks Glaze for this one. Birthday at the brewery with the boys. Sweet, unbalanced beer.. Served at the brewery on Tuesdays in September. Hazy auburn color, little to no head. Palate is all over the place. The best part of this one is the carbonation profile. Caramel, malt, sour yeast, heavy alcohol present on the back end.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Poured a very cloudy orange with a gold hue and white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a note of burnt graham cracker crust with some light fruits, funk and just a bit of sourness. Flavor had the same graham cracker note with some nutmeg, vanilla and spent grain notes. Really didn’t pick up any sour notes on the tongue.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub and its called Jabberwocky. Bartender said no growlers, no samples, he said even employees are not allowed to sample this beer because there was such a limited amount. A 1/6 barrel will be tapped each Tuesday at 5 PM this month he said. Pour into a tulip glass was a murky dark amber color with light tan head. Aroma was great. Nutty almonds, oak, funk, cherry. Medium mouthfeel with way too much carbonation for my liking for this style. Its carbonated right for a tripel, not a sour. Flavor was aggressive sherry and oak flavors upfront, leading into a nutty almond backbone with toffee caramel and cherry layered in, then finished with a slight sour note from the bugs. Very woody, acidic, and simply wonderful. Just a great beer.

Pouring from their booth at BCTC. Pours a light brown, hazy, with a thin beige head. Nutty acetone, cinnamon sticks, toast. Nutty and spicy, rather weird. Tart malt. Long gross buttery bitterness.
