Kuzo (116) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is a delicious candied and dried fruit with subtle hints of vanilla and bourbon. The taste and mouthfeel starts with a light fruity bitterness "pop" on the back of your tongue from the carbonation with a sweet bready malt base. Hints of citrus and apple with mild oak, vanilla, and bourbon on the finish. The presence of alcohol is noticeable with each sip. Overall a very good beer but i was expecting something a bit heavier with more smokey characteristics. Very drinkable for the high ABV.

pictoman (1056) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2017
Poured from 750mL bottle (bottled on 11/02/16). Clear yellow with full bubbly white head. Yeast and coriander with mild wood, finishes with a smooth bourbon flavour, alcohol mostly hidden. Very smooth, well balanced. Not a traditional abbey tripel by any stretch, but still quite good.

Westy1130 (45) - New York, USA - APR 12, 2017
picked up a bottle at Costco for $17.99 (bit expensive for something aged for only 8 weeks/ not disappointed though). Poured a hazy gold with less than a finger of head. Citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Strong bourbon and vanilla flavors with a malty/hop finish. Very well balanced Tripel.

ScottWallace82 (97) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a quick-dissipating white head. Lemon, spice, and Belgian yeast on the nose. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a slight harshness from the carbonation. Good tripel flavors week a slight woodiness. Not bad, but very little bourbon flavor.

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 (886) - - 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.
