3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. First pour off the keg... Cloudy dark golden color. Thin white head. Couple loose dots of lace. Medium to bigger body. Not as thick as expected. Very light carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Pleasant whiskey barrel aroma. Some vanilla, light wood, works well with the banana flavor I’m getting from the base. Light bitter, light sweet, some whiskey type alcohol warmth in the flavor, light bite from the whiskey. Light bit of spice, little beglian yeast flavor.. Maybe a hint of tartness. Solid, interesting, very big-flavored beer... But as far as whiskey barrel -aged tripels go, this has nothing on Allagash Curieux in my opinion... For me that was perfection of the style

Big thanks to Scot for sharing this one. Cheers, my friend! Pours a hazy yellow-brown with a white head. Nose is apple, yeast, booze, some bourbon, and oak. Flavor is a nice blend of sweet malt, some booze, some yeast, some oak, bourbon, sweet apple, and caramel. Light to medium in body, and sweetly boozy overall.

750ml bottle corked and caged poured a light cloudy orangish yellow color with aromas of light whisky, grain, light sweet fruit and a touch of spicy yeast. Flavors follow suit light fruit and booze up front by some yeasty aftertaste. Thanks to the kind person who brought it to the tampa weekly tasting, this was a pretty good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nicely carbonated beverage. It has a cloudy wheat like color. I picked up on sweet whiskey, wood, yeast, grains, straw, and fruits. The flavor is of medium whiskey, yeast, oak, sugar, malts, pears, bananas, clove, and wheat. The finish is of whiskey, yeast, a wheatwine, and leaves a cool dryness in my mouth. Overall this is a relaxing and a good brew. I think the whiskey is more potent in comparison to the other ingredients and it loses me there.

Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a hazy orange brown color with a trace of rising bubbles. On the nose it is full of sweet fruit, honey and some whiskey barrel touches. The palate follows the nose with a nice toasted oak background. Nice balance between barrel flavors and sweet round caramel fruit. Could use a little more bubble to clean up the mouthfeel and the slightly sticky finish but overall a solid beer.
