Not so sickly sweet as some belgians. Smooth mouthfeel. Ratebeer says barley wine, but the bottle says triple, so trippel? Nice citrus aroma, and a lingering bitter finish covered by a light candy sweetness. Dangerously drinkable.
Didn't take notes in time. This was a good beer though. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

A vey nice barleywine/wheat mix. Pours a bright cloudy orange with a thick white head. Smells of barleywine malts, fruit, caramel and sea salt. Taste is fruity, boozy, with some vanilla in the finish. Quite nice. Had on tap at the brewery. johnnnniee (4411) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Older bottle shared by Mike at the meeting tonight, thanks for the opportunity!
Sweet rich malty fruitiness with hints of spice bread and hints of sherry like oxidation. Nice sipper but headed down the other side of the bell curve. SudsMcDuff (8488) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2014
.. . have seen this cat for years, but never ordered it, until now- needed to fill a hole in a recent order and the price was right; so in goes the cat into my cart .. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
. this cat pours deep gold amber .. the foam from this cat is impressive, mild lacing .. . bold cat on the sweetness, malty and a super drinkable cat .. . lots of sherry .. . a very nice cat, smooth and rich, very english and soft, this is a sweet cat. .. . . i fucked a beer once....
"Sherry-like only if sherry has hops. Good balance though between the wheat, other mAlts and hops. Lightly bitter and sweet, not showing a lot of alcohol."

Malty grainy aroma. Pours clear straw/amber with a white head. Sweet malty flavors with a long sweet finish. boilerwillie (1) - - MAR 26, 2013 does not count
They're not kidding when they say "triple" wheat. Takes a sip to get used to, but very refreshing.

bomber into glass..pours orangish hazy..taste is malts , wheat, strong alcohol finish.. nice to drink, goes down smooth, but prolly wont do again... 944play (427) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2012
22oz in Le Merle glass. Very pale orange, slight haze, small soapy head. Surprisingly raisiny ripe plum aromas with some musty dusty cellar, pepper, and peach. Spiky, high test flavors of uncomplicated bittering and booze; a wash of untoasted sweet pervades but isn’t overbearing. Plasticky bitter sticks around a bit too long for full points in the palate, but a balanced body with dryness is pleasant enough. To be honest, I’d like a wheatwine to be gooier, softer, more luxuriant. dukeredhair (243) - California, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Appearance is bright opaque orange with almost no head and no lacing. Nose is candied tangerine. Taste is incredibly sweet and sugary, cloying candied citrus and a sugary wheat malt. Palate is thick and chewy which is expected but also really warm. Overall I’m not impressed.
