Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with an impressive bone white head that persists forever and leaves lots of lace. Spicy and fruity aroma with a hint of bourbon and oak. Pepper, sweet candy sugars, light sweet fruit, pepper its all there. The flavor is sweeter than I expected with lots of sweet fruits and malts with a bit of caramel in there for fun. Some vanilla and bourbon oak midway through and a hit of alcohol right at the end into a fairly dry finish that does leave a bit of sweetness on the palette. Medium body with a high level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice tripel, I quite enjoyed this one.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a hazy yellow with a finger of white head that fades into a thin layer with a little lacing.

S: Some light spice and candy sugar notes up front followed by strong chardonnay-like aromas. Woody tanins, fermented fruits, and a slight buttery presence bring up the finish.

T: Similar to the aroma, there are some Belgian spices and candy sugar flavors at first. Chardonnay, woody tanins, and fruit follow with a slightly yeasty finish.

M: Medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer is a little thick and under-attenuated for a tripel, but it's not surprising considering the barrel aging.

O: A solid beer overall, and while the barrel aspects are nice, they overwhelm the tripel aspects a bit too much. Still, it's enjoyable.

Batch 300 = tripel style + oak cubes + Citra hops. It looks like just another Bruery experiment, but this recipe was created by a homebrewer who won the Batch 300 contest. Anyways, on to the beer:

That orangish yellow color looks like it's glowing. The head forms at a reasonable inch thickness and drops to a lace and leaves dots of lace around the glass. That nose comes as a change of pace. It's not traditionally a tripe by any means, but it still surprised me. Pear comes first, then the oak and licorice, finally the Citra hop brings a melon and pine note.

While the Citra and oak are east to notice, this beer remains delicate as per style. And it's on the tasty side, I might add. Honeydue, melons, oak. I'm not catching the base tripel besides the strength of the beer, but at the very least it's a good canvas for those two "special" additives. It's medium bodied, yet it seems lighter than that, thanks to its airy characteristic.

I've had a few tripels aged in wood, but I don't recall one that was as hoppy as this (unless you consider those Belgian IPA's to be hoppy tripels). As much as I love Citra hops, they did take some time getting used to in this eventually satisfying tripel.
