Notes/Commercial Description:
Tripel Tonnellerie is a 100% barrel fermented version of a Belgian Abbey Tripel. The base beer carries a classically clean maltiness, balanced by a fruity aroma and a dry, spicy mouthfeel. Extended fermentation in oak barrels inoculated with wild yeast allowed the beer to develop the rustic, earthy tones of a classic countryside biere de garde resulting in a uniquely flavorful beer, suitable for beer and wine lovers alike.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours a hazy golden body with a two finger eggshell head. Okay lacing and retention.

S - Sour lemon, green apple, funk, definite oak, Belgian yeast and a bit of sweetness to wrap it all together.

T - Whoa... The nose is like an amplified version of the taste, which the latter seems like a letdown now. Orange citrus forward, sweet, mild funk and little to no tartness. The Belgian character is there along with a bit of oak.

M - On the heavy side of light bodied with medium carbonation.

O - The look and smell are spot on, but the taste is a bit of a letdown. I'd still take this over may tripels, so I can't discount that in my rating.

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.
