Bottle shared by Javier and Joe smokepot23 at Woodshop 5.0. This is the best beer I’ve ever had from Troegs. I like their brews but this is just plain old fantastic. Pours orange with a bright white ring. Nose is great, sweet belgian yeast. Taste is really great, and properly balanced.

When this one was opened...it not only was a gusher...but probably 10 ounces were shot out of this bottle before we could even react to get a glass over to it to save some. Pours a hazy golden with a large foamy white head that left lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, candi suger, bready malt, oak, hints of vanilla, lemon, some spicy Belgian notes and other citrusy notes. Flavor of mixed citrus, lots of bretty character, vanilla, toasted malts, some tartness along with honey.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color with a large white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, honey, pils malt, vanilla, citrus fruits, light spices, toffee, and toast. Taste of citrus, vanilla, toffee, toasted malts, sweeter honey notes, brett, and a light tartness. High carbonation, and no sign of the 12%.

Cracked this open for new years. A large fluffy white head, aroma is a bit of sweet malts. The oak barrel blended well with a bit of spice, yeast, and citrus and gave it a good taste. I was still a little disappointed as I was expecting more outta this.
