Attractive golden brew in the Maredsous goblet with a white foam. Hot and tangy on the tongue. Lovely woody aroma with the wee hint of funk.

Tasty barrel flavor with the ideal sweet and malty Tripel base. Taste of applejack with a shot of pear liqueur, if there is such a thing. Warm grain smoothness.

The alcohol blends nicely with the boozy flavors and the fruity depths. A delicious and strong tipple. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Liticker's Liquor in Ocean Beach.

Served in a 10oz tulip glass, very cold.

Appears clear straw yellow, no head.

Aroma of cloves, pineapple, and licorice, with very slight malt character.

Signature barrel-aged taste (bourbon?), spices, cloves, wild flowers, and yeasty. Just a tad of bitterness followed by an overwhelming malt sweetness. Comparable to the Lightning Brewery Barrel-Aged Electrostatic Ale.

Medium-full bodied, with medium carbonation. This is a sipping beer, as it does not roll off the tongue easily.

Overall, a decent barrel-aged ale. Cannot comment on the original version, but I would probably have this again with pizza or other Italian food.
