4.3/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours out a lightly hazed, deep orange-gold body with a thinning, wispy, white head.

Smell: Sweet-smelling nose of crisp honey candy with persistent, yet subtle hints of vanilla and spice and light citrus. Upon slight warming, a pear and apple fruitiness awakens.

Taste: Honey-glazed, candi sugar-encrusted pils malts with a tangy touch of wheat and the pleasing floral character of fresh, sun-bathed meadow flowers. Small hint of chilled lemon juice with a fruitiness coming across as a apple and pear combination. Then, in comes a taste of vanilla cream dusted with coriander and a spicy, oaky aspect. Drying finish with lingering touches of oak and clover honey.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, soft mouthfeel.

Drinkability: This drinks very nicely, with very little alcohol presence beyond its warming nature. The standard Haiku is good, this French Oak-aged Trippel Lindy version is a step above that, but it's not quite as spectacular as the Kunde Estate Cabernet Barrel-aged Trippel Cab.

This is the Haiki Trippel aged in French Oak barrels, bottle at the brewpub.

Pours a hazy golden color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of mildly spicy pilsner malts with good amounts of light fruits - pears with hints of bananas. As the beer warms very light amounts of oak aromas with hints of coriander waft out as well.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. Crisp and sweet pilsner malt flavors kick things off before being joined quickly by good amounts of syrupy pear flavors. Midway through the sip hints of mildly spicy oak with coriander enter into things and carry through to a crisp ending.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a nice thickness with active carbonation.

Drinkability is also very good. I had no problem finishing my glass and could easily have a few more.

Overall I was a pretty big fan of this. Although the effects of the French Oak are subtle they do nothing but augment the already solid flavors in this beer. Worth a shot.
