4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
