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

A- golden, clear, persistent ring of white bubbles

S- fruity pineapple with some movie theater popcorn, a bit like some Chardonnays.

T/M- buttery, dry, lightly tart, moderate carbonation, just a touch of hoppy bitterness in the mix.

O- a very different beer. Wine like in its dryness and diacetyl but still enjoyable as a saison.

Serving type: on-tap

Hazy gold color
Nose of pear, oak, barnyard funk, and a little golden raisin.
Taste is of biscuits, barnyard funk, lime zest, huge pear and tart green apple notes from the Chardonnay. With a crisp yet still creamy and off dry finish.
Mouthfeel is sharp and clean, yet smooth and medium bodied.
Overall a touch too sweet but the complexity is nice. Maybe a little less time in barrel would have done it for me. Nice overall though

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Quite lovely foamy appearance in the Tripel Karmeliet tulip. Dark amber color with lots of lacing. Tangy and spritzy mouthfeel. A fruity champagne.

Aromatic yeasty and fruity nose. Pear skins and apple flavors. The dry finish give it the classic Belgian sensation-- fruit, grain, a sharp touch. Thoroughly drinkable and the sudsiness is quite pleasant. A little barrel booziness, some grapey tang, and a faintly sourish finish.

From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Wine & Liquors in Denver. This one is a year old and has held up better than a lot of beers.

Served in a wedding snifter.

Bottle #02848. Been hanging on to this bottle for a little while, just waiting to see what hides inside. It pours a clear sunset brass-amber topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises boozy white wine, light butter, oak, and a twinge of funky lemon rind. The taste is basically a blast of oaked chardonnay with some mild saison yeast veins coming through every so often. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, though not all that bad, it seems as though the barrel speaks much louder than the beer itself. It's almost as if a chardonnay was aged in saison barrels.

Light whiskey brown in color. Forms a smallish off white head. Reduces down to a spotty surface coating. Light lacing. Pleasant aroma. Light sweetness. Grapes, floral, madly vinous. Moderate oakiness. Taste is similar, though the vinous quality is more apparent. Light pale malts, white wine, light grapiness. Oak. Neither dry nor sweet. Moderate drying astringency on the back end. Overall, decent, but not sure this beer was big enough to take the barrel aging.
