I had a bottle and poured it into a chalice.
A nice rich golden brew with a 1/2" head that was fairly stiff. I normally like a Tripel to have a stiffer head, but considering this is no ordinary Tripel (if there is such a thing as ordinary Tripel), I'm cool with it.
The smell was crisp, definitely some delicate malts and a slight scent of the bourbon barrel.
The taste was fantastic, some peach and candy notes. And the bourbon barrel was not overpowering, only hinted at, contributing to the overall taste. A very sweet tasting beer.
The mouthfeel was clean and refreshing, the right amount of effervescence to compliment the taste.
Overall it was an incredibly enjoyable beer. Will definitely have this again and enjoy it thoroughly.
