I had this beer from tap at the Borefts beerfestival in september 2012. One the highlights of the festival for me to be honest. From notes....

Poured in the De Molen festivalglass in can onl say 'what a great beer' This is blond triple beer aged on bourbon barrels. I like beer which are aged on BB. Sweet beer with a very nice bourbon background, loved it!

Picked this up from the Zeebra Extreme Beer Fest last year in The Netherlands. It was brewed specifically for the fest by organizer Mark Van Galen. Beautiful clear amber orange pour with a quickly fading one finger fizzy off-white head with no lacing. Huge oaky bourbon nose with hints of vanilla, caramel, orange, honey, apricot, and subtle vinous notes. The taste follows suit with the bourbon and oak front and center. Hints of butterscotch, tangerine, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar, and booze with some subtle vinous notes as well. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly syrupy with moderate carbonation and a subtle warming finish. Overall, I absolutely loved this beer. Was not expecting it to be so good based on previous reviews. Really loved how the barrel and bourbon came through. I will definitely be working at getting more of these if they're still out there.

On-tap at the Farmhouse in Burlington.

Beer is dark caramel in colour with a minimal white head- almost nothing. Still looks nice.

The nose is surprisingly faint given that this is a monster of a beer. The tangerine sticks out a bit, as well as some bourbon and sweet malt.

Taste contains caramel, bourbon, light fruits (the tangerine is there!), oak. Booze. A touch of cinnamon in the end? Very sweet, and a bit hot, but very tasty.

Full bodied, low carbonation, a but sticky. Chewy.

Overall, very good. A real mash up of flavours. You have to have a taste for sweet beers, but if you do, this is very tasty.

This Tripel sets the tone early with a brilliant and glowing apricot orange coloring. The head was thick, almost like a layer of cream, that sat a top for most of the experience.

The aromas are more to the barrel aging with bourbonesque sweetness, oakey dryness, and a vanilla cream. Certain fruits come out as white grapes, oranges and tangerines waft quietly into the nostrils.

Oh, this is good. All the barrel and all the fruit combine with a honey sweetness to really create a bold flavor. It starts with an oakey bourbon flavor that yields to a barley graininess. There is then a coconut, vanilla and orange creamsicle flavor before it hits the honey and then ends with a tinge of boozy bitterness.

The feel is thick and elegant with a silkiness. The carbonation level is low and it has almost a texture to it.

Served in a footed glass at the Mikkeller bar in SF. From notes. Reviewed 10 August 2013.

A: Clearish, no head. Dark amber in color.

S: Boozy Belgian sweet yeast. Grain and bourbon. St. Germain.

T: Really sweet. Pushing cough syrup. But it still works. Lots of sticky caramel splashed through with fruit and candy sugar and Belgian spice. Sweetness is the name of the game.

M: Grain-thick and bland.

O: Too sweet for general consumption, but a welcome change to be sure. I like BA tripels.
