Served on tap into a small snifter at Bier Station in Kansas City.

A - Cloudy apricot color with a dense, creamy two-finger head. Lingers longer than I care to wait to smell/taste, but shrinks to a healthy film after tanking a drink. Lacing is heavy, like wet snow on a windowsill.

S - Minty, but more of an herbal mint, like a fresh mint leaf. At this point I really get very little of the floral yeasty characteristic of tripels. Enticing but strange.

T - There's the tripel. Boozy, yeasty and an inferred sweetness from the mint. However, it remains more herbal than candy-like mint. Some banana phenols make an appearance on the back of the taste. Some bitterness as well.

M - A little syrupy, like high-ABV booze.

Overall the best word I can use is strange. But in a clearly positive way. If this was an everyday offering, I probably wouldn't buy it all the time, but as a limited brew its worth coming back to.

On tap. Pours a golden yellow color with a white, one finger head that dissipates slowly and doesn't leave lacing. Nose is an after meal mint. Taste is a little bit of wheat body with a big hit of tooth paste style mint that decimates the taste buds. The faux mint taste actually becomes chalkier and stronger as the beer warms. Medium carbonation and medium body with unescapable mint aftertaste.
I haven't had a mint julep, but I imagine it tastes better than this beer. I pushed through 2/3 of it before I asked for a water to purge my mouth of the mint and get a different beer. Apparently I'm not the only person there who didn't really like it since the bar was giving out a tulip glasses with the beer to get rid of the keg.

This is a super refreshing beer with much mint & well hidden ABV . I liked the subtle grassiness & pears, married well with mint along with melon . Well worth a try, will get this again

I was a little skeptical of a cocktail emulating beer at first but they actually pulled it off somehow. The tripel base provide a good booziness and sweetness to the beer. The barrel age gives it enough oak for you to maybe consider this is actually whiskey and the mint seals the deal. Excellent.
