Sdaniel90 (1082) - 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 you’d 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 should’ve stayed in bourbon barrels for 8 months. It’s too expensive for what it is; falls short when compared to other non-BA tripels in lower price points!

PhillyCraft (7235) - 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

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 (7588) - Garching b. München, 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 (663) - 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 (1933) - 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 don’t prefer (high yeast, banana flavors). This was tasty.

3.5
zvikar (6172) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - NOV 5, 2016
Hazy yellow, medium head, aroma of wood, coconut, caramel, toffee, sourness, fruitiness, chocolate, flavor of wood, coconut, caramel, toffee, chocolate, nice, medium bodied.

_angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Håkan. Fairly clear golden pour with a small frothy white head. Heavy bourbon BA nose with caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood and toasted coconut mixed with hints of toffee, baked pears, hay, minerals and bourbon alcohol. Sweet and tiny bitter taste. Round boozy mouthfeel. Heavy pear and bourbon alcohol finish. If it wasn’t for the baked pears I wouldn’t even have guessed triple. Very heavy bourbon character. Nice for what it is but I had hoped for something more Belgian.
