Presented at the AOBF in Boston. I was definitely blessed at this beer fest.
Poured into the 4 oz. sampler cup a hazy golden yellow with no head to speak of. Not getting any lace from this one, but a thin syrup coats well enough.
I gave it a nice swirl and the nose jumped out of the glass. Mixed fruits soaked in bourbon. Slight vanilla aroma. A light alcohol smell is present, but it is overwhelmed by the fruits.
Wow... tart apple, grapes and orange zest meet a peppery bourbon finish that warms going down. Sweet and delicious.
Thicker mouthfeel than the Triple Reserve and IMHO much tastier.
Not gonna have a problem drinking a couple of these. Thanks to ABC for bringing such a prize.
Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some some lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, banana, coconut, vanilla, spices and woody oak.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some Belgian yeast, coconut, banana, faint spices, some vanilla, woody oak and faint bourbon.
Mouthfeel: It has a med-high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.
Serving type: bottle
