Draft, at BA Night of the Funk. Poured hazy golden with a moderate sized white head. Really enjoyable aroma, with yeast and wheat of the trippel, along with tart, funky, woody flavors picked up from the barrel aging. Complex flavor, with yeast, spice, oak, and funky, earthy yeast. Nice, active carbonation. By far my favorite beer at the fest. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
On tap at Brick Store Pub 6/19/08: Pours a cloudy dark golden with orange hues and a nicely-lacing froth of white head. Complex nose of sweet biscuity pale malts, balanced with some semi-tart leathery funk and fresh vinous oak. Also has some light fruity esters. Body starts with good fullness and lively carbonation showing a touch of caramely sweetness before a drier, funky cheesy finish. Has nice tartness with some mild lemon citrusy flavor without being overpowering. Good cherry oaky fruitiness throughout. Quite drinkable with great complexity and balance. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Poured a slightly hazed orange-gold color with a small almost white head. The aroma is complex. Sweet and fruity with notes of pears and honey dew melon. Nice background of white wine, wood and leather. The flavor is also complex but not as much. Nice vinous notes with pear and other fruits. Mild tartness. Light to medium body and a touch of acidity on the tail. The only downside to this beer is the price. Aprox $6 for 10oz and $30 for a growler. egajdzis (6502) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla oak, citrus fruits, spicy yeast, brett, white grapes, and leather. Taste of citrus fruits, lighter Tripel spices, oak, vanilla, and a lightly sour finish, with no alcohol at all. Thanks to TomDecapolis and goldtwins for setting this one up!

Bottle fill from growler station at Shoreline Beverage: Slightly hazy golden with a thin bubbly white head. Aroma is oaky, herbal, cheesy (touch of Gouda), mild brett funk, and a Calvados character. Very complex nose. Has a fairly slick texture. The flavor is not sour, but has lots of complexity. Elegant oak presence with an underlying subtle sweet note of vanilla. as some lactic cheesy notes, mild Brie cheese, herbal hints, apple cinnamon/baked apple products comes through as it warms, followed by residual oakiness into the finish. Complex and outstanding.

Thanks to TomDecapolis for sharing this one! Poured a medium golden color with a very small sized head. Aromas of wood, funkiness, vinous, woody, and fruity. Tastes of vanilla, wood, funky, fruits, and grapes. Light tart and sour finish. yespr (44811) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2010
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is dry citric and fruity. Smooth fruity and mild wooden base flavoured. Smooth lingering and slight caramelish. Citric and nice fruity into the finish. Lovely mix of the Rodenbach yeast and the base triple recipe. Stavesacre80 (10) - 32839, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Really great beer. Big flavors of honey, but couldn't put my finger on a strong flavor in it. Guess I'll have to keep trying it.

tap at NOTF ’07. Hazy, blended golden with a white head. Nice, sweet and yeasty aroma with a bit of funk thrown in to balance things out. The funk really worked well with the phenols from the tripel. Flavor, like the lyons folly, is a nice mix of sweetness and funky yeast. I must confess I love Allagash Tripel and everytime Rob does something to "spice" it up, it always works out great. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Growler tap. Luscious aroma of oak, wine (more wine barrel than really wine), light whiskey/other hard alcohol, sour popcorn. Flavor more of the same, the tripel tries to come out more but really remains a canvas for the barrel aging to dance upon. Very rich and full-bodied for a tripel, mildly sweet, mildly sour, all in balance. Warming. Reminded me A LOT of a more refined (read: better) Captain Lawrence Golden Delicious. Impressed.
