Appearance: Slightly cloudy light golden- yellow color with a frothy generous white head that slowly faded. good looking Tripel.
Smell: Bready notes, mild fruity and mild funk notes dominate the nose.
Taste: The bready, fruity, and mild funk notes that were present in the nose come through in the taste. The beer has a Tripel/Saison Hybrid taste. The typical Tripel notes are there but there is a faint Saison taste profile also present. The finish is more Saison dry than a typical Tripel.
Mouth-feel: Fairly light-bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Light bodied for a Tripel.
Overall: A unique twist on a Tripel. To me the fermentation with wild yeast lend a Saison taste/feel to the beer. I like the way the Bruery puts their spin on traditional beer styles.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
Thin pale apricot orange body. Lots of sticking cola carbonation bubbles. Two finger creamy head and not too much retention, a bit of soda pop crackle on the pour as well. Head leaves a thin white puck.
Interesting nose. Hints of toast grains, faint brett like heat and warmth, good amount of vanilla and woody tannins. Some sugary white bread and sensing bakery sweetness, peanut butter?! and classic sucrose. Really interesting nose but kind of all over the place.
Palate fills with more common tripel character. Light bodied wine fruit notes of orange and apricot, which are quickly taken over by a big huge husky note of thick dough and light grains. The body is just a bit too light, almost like cheap wine. Faint hint of dry yeast pepper on the finish, but doesn't really last through this malt sweetness.
It's got some of that wine flavor of a special tripel, but no depth, and is just filled with lots grain thickness. It's very odd. Interesting beer though.

750mL bottle acquired through my Society membership. Bottled 4/4/14. Served in a Bruery snifter.
Pours hazy straw yellow with almost four fingers of fluffy white foam. The head lingers in the form of a hazy layer, leaving no lace to speak of.
Smells of soured grains, mild spice, skinned fruits and a hint of bread.
As has been stated elsewhere, this tastes like a blend of tripel and saison. Bread, grass, yeasty funk, apple skins, faint barrel, bitter fruit seeds, vague brett-fueled horsey notes and a light dose of alcohol. Drinks pretty easily considering it borders on double digit alcohol content.
Dry, medium feel with fairly sharp carbonation. Bready, funky fruit & vaguely spicy finish.
I guess it's good at being what it is but it is not what I'd reach for next time I want a tripel. If you're a fan of both tripels and saisons and are curious concerning a hybrid this would be a good place to start.

Disappointing after the excellent Saison Tonnellerie and my general appreciation, if not passion, for Trade Winds.
Pours a slightly hazy golden hue with a finger or two of head. Pleasant, but neither the warming glow or billowing head of great tripels.
First impression of aroma is excellent, fruitiness and a bit of earth and pepper. As it goes along, this dissipates and becomes a little thin and flat...both of which describe the flavor. Empty and thin, it's entirely inoffensive, although there is a gentle tartness and funk in the background that isn't entirely working.
I'd have no problem drinking more (and I've got another bottle), but this seems entirely pedestrian and forgettable, what little that's distinctive coming across as a nuisance instead of an exciting layer of additional depth.
