3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Backlog rating. Keg at BD Camden. It pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is quite sweet with tropical fruits, spicey earthy tones and red berries. Taste is similarly sweet and spicy with notes of sage, black pepper and vanilla. More tropical fruit salad and blueberries. Touch of alchol warming the palate. Quite full body with good carbonation. Overall, barrel ageing improved the base beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours a more or less clear body under a small, dense light beige head. The aroma is is quite sweetish and sugary, with a decent fruityness. Alcohol and some acetone too. Bourbon notes. Itís full-bodied and warming with a nice carbonation level. Pale malts, white sugar and some resiny bitterness in the flavor. Lasting bourbonish alcoholic finish with white sugar and fruityness. Not the kind of beer I prefer putting on barrels, but itís quite decent anyway. 140724

Taste comprises subtle BA notes, more Cointreau, tropical fruit tangs, pineapple, boozey piney licks.

Nice stuff, this grew on me more as it warmed a little, subtle BA, never sweet or sticky, a nice tropical infused number.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Kings Day Tasting 2014 shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy yellow to orange color, medium sized quickly diminishing white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, orange peel, fruity, lightly yeast. Barrel aging is probably going on there somewhere but not really distinctive in the flavor. Some alcohol and sweetness is there as well. In general, I donít dislike it at all but Iím not quite fond of it either. Decent.

6th April 2014
This was a tricy mofo to track down, thanks to tdtm82 for the assist. Hazy deep gold beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and light. Light sweet malt, good vanilla oak. Light tropical fruits and a little spice. Smooth airy finish. The tripel character of the base beer still shows through the vanilla oak. Nice beer.
