Cellar aged. Poured beautifully & still unfiltered with a bright white head. Smells very fruity. Taste is still really potently tripel/alcoholic with lots if fruity fore & aftertaste. Amazing beer.

2008 bomber, Brandonís house, split 3 ways. Thanks, Brandon. Spectacularly good Belgian strong. Textbook perfection plus more, with added spicy peppery notes, cloves, and Banana, plus a nice dose of hops. This aged remarkably well and at 5 year old it tasted shockingly fresh. I donít usually go crazy for Belgians but this was right up my alley.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden beer with almost no head. White wine/grape nose with some grapefruit and some spice. Syrupy mouth feel with flavors of spice, grapefruit zest and white grapes. Iíím not a big fan of Belgian IPAís, but this is so much bigger.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange with quickly settling white head, no lacing. Aroma is floral, fruity, sweet, apricot, peach, with a mild hoppiness. Flavor is also quite sweet, fruity, peach/apricot, citrus and floral hops, spice, mild alcohol in the finish. Mildly herbal, bitter, fruity aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium-light body, and mildly juicy texture. Seems to have cellared quite nicely. A good belgian.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Clear orange color with a thin white head. Nice lacing and good bubbles.
N: Caramel, toffee, mandarin orange, some oxidation, leafy hops, esters.
T: Well balanced by the bitter and sweet elements. Tastes more like a barleywine/old DIPA than a BSA
M: Sticky, medium body. Alcohol is prevalent.
O: Not too bad. Hops have faded significantly and the oxidation level is light. Still solid, but not my favorite.

Bottle at RBSG. Pour is an unclear, light yellow with some head. Quite a bit of citrus on the nose and tons, belgian yeast, banana, finished bitter. Best of the ones I tried, wish I had finished the vertical.
