bottle shared quebec crew - thanks buddies! pours hazy golden with a creamy white cap, good retention, sticky lacing. fat grapes, honeyed maltiness - sweet grains, spicy oranges fruitiness, booze - lots, wood, grass, yeast. lively to average carbonation, medium body - oily and creamy; very boozy and spicy-grassy finish. nice barrel-aged tripel but not outstanding.

Bottle 750ml. [Blind tasted]
Pours dark golden with low white head. Aroma is of fruits, oak, wine, chardonnay. Taste is of alcohol, fruits, belgian yeast, wine, oak, chardonnay. Palate: Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Overall: Nice barrel treatment. Good beer. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of fruits, alcohol and carries a light tartness that is interesting. Taste is of alcohol, grapes and various yellow fruits. A bit too much alcohol but nothing bad. Body and carbonation were both moderate. OK, not something I would go for again. tom10101 (6297) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2015

Appearance: Hazy orange with a small white head and some lacing.
Aroma: Quite boozy with belgian yeast, interesting chardonnay and oak features, fruity notes and moderate spiciness.
Taste: Quite boozy and sweet (the alcohol is more cloying than the sweetness though) with nice fruity features, moderate spiciness, white wine, Belgian yeast and oak.
Palate: Medium to full body. Good carbonation. Fruity finish. Warming.
Overall: It’s not a bad Tripel and the wine features are interesting but the alcohol is way too present in this one even if it’s a BSA. Lack of balance a bit and the drinkability level is rather low even for the style.
Bottle tasted blind. Clear gold pour with white lacy head. Aroma is boozy, boozy fruits, raisins. Taste is super boozy, oak, pear, booze. Palate is dry, med bodied with good carbonation. Meh.

Sampled from a 750ml bottle at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Poured an unfiltered golden with a cream top and a decent amount of lacing. Taste of alcohol, perfume, white wine grapes, and slightly tart. Average carbonation, medium body. Overall the barrel flavors are barely even noticeable limiting the complexity of what this brew should have been. unclemike (3196) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - MAR 29, 2015
this my friend gets 2 thumbs up Pours a cloudy gold with a slight, creamy white head. Pungent aroma of white wine, fruits and oak. Flavor is quite sweet with prominent alcohol/wine notes. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. A bit herbal. Finishes sweet with lingering chardonnay notes. Very, very good. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2015

Cloudy orange pour with big lasting white head. Sticky lacing. Aroma is strong over ripe fruits, white wine, and sweet bready malt. Taste is peach, white wine, dough, yeast, wood, and earth. Dry finish. Layers of flavor. Really good.
