UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 Drank this brew a couple of times! Once on tap at the Waregem beerfest (08), and also at the Struise farm from a 75cl bottle. Both tastings had a hazy orange/apricot color. From the tap though, the head just exploded with a superb creamy head that settles into a thin layer. The bottled was a little more restrained than on tap. The aroma was absolutely stunning with hints of oak, refreshing butter, honey, vanilla, and loads of mango and apricot; alcohol was well hidden for 10%abv. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. The taste had chewy fruit notes with a malty character along with a touch of vanilla and oak; what an amazing complex brew. You would never know that this was 10%; I had no trouble polishing off this beer. Gotta love this Tripel!! Another great brew from the crew at Struise.

Ysok02 (1472) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2017
Robe ambre, fine mousse crmeuse, persistante. Nez tout en lgance sur des notes maltes, pices, boise, pointe de bourbon... sur un fond de caramel, de fruits jaunes confits, trs lgant et complexe. Bouche lattaque riche mais trs lgante, du fruit, des pices, une bulle crmeuse souhait et une longueur kilomtrique sur une finale boise mais qui reste frache. Une trs grand bire, en effet un cran au dessus de tsjeeses leve en fts de Porto.

heman (931) - Tychy, POLAND - MAY 24, 2017
Barwa miedziana, piwo przymglone, piana mało intensywna, ale trwała. Aromat intensywny, karmel, melasa, suszone owoce (daktyle, figi), nuty rumowe, przyprawy w tle, zdaje się, że o korzennym charakterze. W tle wytrawna nuta drewna. W smaku pełne, początkowo słodkie, jednak powoli przechodzi w wytrawny finisz. Analogicznie do zapachu, ale z mocniej wyczuwalnym drewnem na finiszu, nieco cierpkim, z taninami, osadzającym się na długo w przełyku. Finisz to muśnięcie alkoholu, sama nuta bourbon-u raczej na granicy autosugestii.

visionthing (5243) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2017
On tap (2014 Markers Mark) at TCBW, Tallinn. Slightly hazy amber with a b off-white head. Rather fruity and vinous aroma with mild bourbon notes, wood, hints spices and alcohol. Fairly sweet, but some acidity notes and tannins. A bit too much on the sweet side, but quite enjoyable.

carlom (38) - ITALY - APR 27, 2017
Colore ambrato, schiuma poco persistente, al naso malto, leggeri sentori di legno. Sapore di vaniglia e leggeri richiami alla stagionatura in botte. finale dolce.Una birra equilibrata ma senza emozioni.

beerplace (1539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2017
330ml bottle from BeerShop.com.ua. Vintage 2011. Pours a hazy copper with a tan head. Aroma is very fruity, sweet, some alcohol. Similar taste with some caramel notes. Slightly boozy. Couldnt find any bourbon barrel aging presence. Just a good Belgian beer.

Tommyknockers (8) - Beaufort, South Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2017 does not count
Good beer with the tangy port barrel taste. It is a good beer for a late night drink. Does not have to be consumed at Christmas time . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
