Poured out of the bomber, into my Allagash Glass!
Poured a cloudy, gold. With a think, pouris head, that seemed to last forever, clinging to the glass the whole time I drank this beer.
Aroma was a typical tripel. A sort of spice, with a little citrus was easy to detect.
At first sip, I was in love with this beer! A warming alcohol presence was noticable upfront, along with an orange/citrus hint.
Very smooth, very enjoyable beer. A light, refreshing mouthfeel.
I would love to get my hands on more of this beer. Belgiens are not my favorite, but man, if all beligians tasted like this, I would drink them all the time.

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.
