4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 04/09/2014. This is a tripel according to the bottle. Pours amber golden, clear, creamy white head. Nose is sweet, thick white sugar, white grapes, sweet white grapes, white glazing, liqueur, cake, honey, very sweet BE yeast, white cupcakes, very pleasing smell. Tastes of honey, white grapes, thick white sugar, light condensed milk, cupcakes, clear alcohol, kumquat liqueur, bit obscured by a less interesting floral & BE yeast profile. Slightly oily, sugary, decent carb. Bit warming, quite a unique & interesting taste profile, not optimal but still very pleasing. Be sure to let this beer warm up.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is not very pleasant. I get some biscuit malt and a little bit of yeast, but I also get something that resembles dirty socks and some steamed vegetables.
The flavor is better than the aroma. I get some yeast and grain notes as well as some orange citrus. Even though there is nothing offensive in the flavor, I can’t get past the aroma, making the beer somewhat hard to drink.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Barely Legal Tasting Room
Pours Dark yellow / orange . Good and stable white head .
Smell is grainy, bit sweet, bit bitter, very in balance .
Taste is very complex . Oak, buttery , grains, sweet ( vanilla ) , almost like ... bourbon ? Just on the borther of overpowering, but just right...
Slightly bitter , some malty sweetness . Some honey .
Nowhere on the bottle / this site , it officially sais this one is barrel aged .. But tastewise ? i’d be very surprised if it were not ...
Nice one !
