dang. i shared a bottle of this with my brother in honor of my thirtieth birthday and have only positive praise for it. we paired it with homemade huaraches, and if you've never tried turning ground corn into tortillas, i'll tell you that all it takes is a little bit of water and a fork, and fueling your efforts with sips of curieux isn't a bad way to go either. it packs an amazing wallop without ever being in your face or overbearing, just an enjoyable experience from feather to feather, from sip to sip. sit back and settle your eyes out on that pod of dolphins passing by. it's summertime. enjoy all the moments.

A: Clear filtered gold with a softness to it, a fair amount of champagne like carbonation, a finger of stark white head. Nice lacing.
S: Tripel all the way. A sweetness, Belgian yeasts, coriander and offal in a Blue Ribbon way. Light notes of bubble gum and emptied shot gun cartridges just shot. Vanilla? Perhaps but muted in the sort of way you never think of vanilla being in chocolate cake but its there. Coconut (as said on the label) perhaps, as its in a lot of d shelved foods as coconut oil but but goes unnoticed as its mild.
T: Here it comes. Wow. The flavours of a great Tripel – the Belgian yeasts, coriander and fruity flavours are there but mild due to aging, and the lovely bourbon barrels come in strong. Definite woodiness, bourbon, and a softened coconut feel, creamy and smooth and yes vanilla notes. A fair sweetness is there, but not syrupy.
M: Light and smooth, good rich foamy, powdery dry carbonation.
O: Excellent brew. Was questioning it on the nose, but overwhelmed on the flavor. Bought at Greenlife Asheville, drank on the beach at Deerfield Beach, FL, July 17th, 2014.
