Bottle sample at a tasting, thanks Alon. Hazy yellow with a huge head. Aroma of wood, vanilla, Brett, wine, yeast, spices and overripe fruits. Sweet, spicy, vanilla, fruity esters, bourbon, oak, finish is mild bitter. Medium-bodied, oily and creamy. Strong and boozy but complex and balanced.

Draft at First Draft in Chicago. Slightly hazy golden pour. The aroma is yeasty esters, oak, bourbon. This is a spritzy, alcoholic triple with grassy hops, lots of fruit, and just a hint of bourbon and wood, not really much. Pretty standard.

Sdaniel90 (1076) - Mexico City, MEXICO - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle, 650ml. Sparkling golden, small creamy offwhite head. Complex aromas of citrus, Belgian yeast, spices, wood, light tart. Medium bodied, fizzyish carbonation. Thin and bone dry, yet creamy. Harsh alcohol flavors and finish.

Wonderful beer that has a finish of Bourbon with every aftertaste. 75 characters, blah blah blah

Medium, cloudy blonde with a medium white head. Aroma is simplistic with malts leading the way; some subtle light fruit sweetness & spice in the back. Flavors are what youd expect from a standard tripel (malt backbone, bananas, fruit esters, white pepper) and not much more despite its time in barrels. Medium body & moderate carbonation. While being approachable and very drinkable, it lacks complexity. Instead of 8 weeks, it really shouldve stayed in bourbon barrels for 8 months. Its too expensive for what it is; falls short when compared to other non-BA tripels in lower price points!

PhillyCraft (6897) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Backlog, Bottle, Pours orange golden with a 2 finger medium head, nice lacing. Smell and taste are bourbon, sweet malting, vanilla bean, banana and misc dark fruits. Medium bodied with easy going booze. Finish is lasting and warming from the percentage and the whiskey. A very drinkable barrel aged trip from Allagash

CraftBeerNick (2311) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2016
Tap at Munich Tap House, 15th November 16. Pours a rich amber, soft foam head. Aroma is big and bold, sweet, bourbon, liquor, barrel. Taste is complex, wood, liquor, vanilla, sweet and bitter. Really good.

jonas (7383) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2016
Bottle. Light moppy, herbal, wood, a few esters. Hazy green, white lace. Fine barrel notes on the foreground, light peach, a hint earthy, fresh wood, moss retronasal. Medium light mellow body, light sparkles, very pleasant.

brownaler (620) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Hazy golden appearance with a bourbon aroma. Belgian malt body and a bubbly finish. Bourbon is a bit too strong with this one.

pinkzambia (1929) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle: Light delicate aroma, full body with a sweet finish. It takes out all the things of a Belgian that I dont prefer (high yeast, banana flavors). This was tasty.
