SamP01 (661) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a nice white fluffy head with good lacing. Belgian yeast, sweet fruity spices, some apricot aroma fill the senses. Taste of sweet fruity spices, Belgian yeast some light citrusy hops and a light oaked flavor. Palate is a nice crisp medium body creamy with some light carbonation, almost champagne like. Finish is sweet fruity spice notes, some Belgian yeast with a distinct oak barrel flavor and sweet dry ending. Overall a very good complex and flavorful brew. Very nicely done.

DiarmaidBHK (4429) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle from Bubbles. Pours peach tinted golden with an inch of white foam. Nice Belgian yeast thing going on on the nose. The taste is a bit more subdued> There;s that bready thing and the slightly fruity element but theyre too mellow. It could be the barrel aging is making the beer less interesting.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light golden color with a small creamy white head. Aroma is very tropical fruity, very juicy, with a subtle spiciness and the clove yeasty notes back there, some vanilla in there too. Flavor is also aggressively tropical fruit, notes of white grape, candied fruit, a touch bready with a lightly spiced, finish, the belgian yeast becoming more prominent. Medium body and a soft but prickily carbonation. Decent beer

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle thanks to funkybrewster. Pours a darker golden with a very fine white frothy head. Aroma is huge tropical fruit... kind of odd, banana, bubble-gum, phenolic, band-aid, sweet fruits, herbal. Flavor follows, big Belgian yeast character, off-dry, finish is the best part, slight alcohol with some candi sugar, slight banana, fruit, lightly grassy. Medium bodied with corse med/small tightly packed carbonation. Pretty good but again its a tripel...

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Sampled at Union Station at the end of L.A. Beer Week. Pours a light yellow which is a little surprising. Very viscous with lots of vanilla notes. Could use some more spicing,

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle/500ml - Pours a slightly reddish amber in color with a bright white head that settled to a thin covering over the beer. Some minor lacing. Aroma is very fruity... estery apple/grape/plum... with a hint of banana. Belgian yeasty with bready malts. Some spiciness. Alcohol in both the aroma and the flavor profile. OK, but not great, by comparison...

dmac (5827) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2011
750ml from one of the oddest shaped bottles out there purchased at Spirits Brick. Poured anice looking medium density clear golden body with a constant rising triangulation of carbonation from three seperate areas. All this beauty under an average sizedsuper foamy white head. Aroma of grains, yeast, tropical fruit skins, super light hint of pepper. Palate is pretty much spot on, medium-full with strong carbonation and a touch of dry sweetness on the end. Flavor of yeast, tropical fruit skins, grains, hint of sugar, chardonnay notes, oak. Solid solid stuff, shocked its BBC.

Banana and spice aroma with alcohol tones. Hazed golden color with white head. Sweet and spiced with banana tones. Not bad.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Pours rusty-gold with a big, somewhat foamy white head. Nose is very fruity and sweet with only the faintest hints of herb and yeast. Bourbon barrel comes out a bit in the flavor and the finish is quite herbal. Alcohol is quite present but isnt overly boozy. Its a decent tripel but nothing exceptional....less oak and more coriander would do it good.
