ansermadide (1505) - Kyle, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Sampled at Rare Beer Tasting II in Denver on September 17, 2010. Light, yellowish amber color (more golden-orange, actually) with a frothy white head. Aroma of… hmm… smells like a barrel-aged tripel. With brandy. Whatd’ya know? Very good. This is exactly what you’d expect by the name of the beer. Has somewhat of an orange character to it as well. Very smooth... the brandy adds a nice fruity edge to the Belgian-style sweetness of the beer. This is actually very well-crafted. This is great... it’s a tarty, fruit-wood-Belgian yeast treat. SO hard to describe this, but "delectable" sums it up nicely.

sample @ the Denver Rare Beer Tasting II on 9/17/10. light golden pour with a slim white head. light brandy nose with apple notes. medium body with a bigger brandy presence with more apple. somewhat sweet... the brandy and trippel go together very well. sweet finish.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Tap at EBF. Smells exactly like (??? word unreadable), anise, brandy. Nutty, tastes like French street food (jesus, I must have been really drunk at this point, wtf is French street food?). Balanced brandy, yeast, doughtnut. Very... clear?

vtafro (2810) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Draft @ EBF. Golden pour with some white head. Oak, brandy and apple notes combine with bready and fruity malt and yeast notes. Warming is noticeable, but almost nice.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Draft at EBF. Pours a hazy golden body with a white head. Apple tones soaked in brandy sweet woodiness. Brandy with some bread y belgian yeast tones, fruity and vinous somewhat reminiscent of sangria. Fruity with a light citrus and brandy warming. V. Nice.
