WOW. This one packs a punch.
Appearance> Golden yellow, lacy, little to no head, v. lively
Smell> Yeasty, very very very alcoholic, reminds me of drinking too much whiskey.. or what I hear about drinking too much whiskey :-p
Taste> The taste of the bourbon is actually so over powering, that it ruins the balance, unless you love bourbon, I guess. Some taste of bananas I found quite lovely.
Mouf> Pretty nice, actually.
Drinkability> Yeah, not bad once I got over myself and stopped saying it tasted too much like bourbon.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottling date of March 22, 2013. Poured into goblet.
A-A nice burnt orange body with great clarity. The head was a pinkies width at best with minimal head retention.
S-Oak, peach, vanilla with a overall earthiness to it. None of them are really pronounced but all melded together.
T-Really enjoy the flavor of this beer. Up front you definitely get a fruitiness of peach and mango with the vanilla coming in after it. The bourbon barrels come in with the dry finish. The barrel aging is more subtle than I was expecting but fucking awesome none the less.
M-On the heavier side for the body thats broken up by the high carbonation. Dryer finish.
O-So this beer was worth the $18 after all. Enjoyed it alot. Wish the price tag was less so I could drink this more often. I do not know the ratio of how much they blend the fresh triple with the barrel aged tripel but being that the bourbon/vanilla/aged characteristics are so subtle I would say a majority of this beer is the fresh tripel. Not complaining at all because I really enjoy this beer. I will have to grab this years and see how it taste.
