This beer pours beautifully. It comes into the glass with a golden honey color and about two and a half fingers of head. The taste has subtle Bourbon notes but nothing over powering. This beer is decent but not even close to being worth the price tag.

Bottle sample at a tasting at zvsns place. Thanks Alon. Golden with white head and lots of particles. The aroma has lots of wood, yeasts, vanilla and flowers. Sweet flavor with notes of yeasts, wood, bourbon, flowers, vanilla, alcoholic, a bit lactic, bitterish. Medium to full-bodied. Great.

Cimbasso (840) - - DEC 30, 2016
Sampled on draught at The Side Door, Chicago. This version is billed as 11% ABV. A clear champagne/straw colour and a rich malty aroma. The texture is thick and creamy. Some Bourbon in the taste. Lots of boozy alcohol, and some vanilla bean, banana and dried fruit flavour. Good, bitter finish. I would expect a slightly more spiciness for a beer made with Belgian yeast in this style. An extremely well-made and enjoyable beer.

zvsn (1785) - ISRAEL - DEC 29, 2016
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.

scarletfire65 (1370) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2016
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 (1058) - 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

beer_queue (81) - California, USA - NOV 29, 2016
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 (6450) - 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
