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.

Got this at a local pub on tap (evidently, the only want to get this limited edition). Solid colour mixed with a fruity yet not-too-overbearing nose really excited me to try it, and I was not disappointed. A fruity front-end evaporates to a smooth minty flavour that feels divine in the mouth and throat before leading to an oaky, whiskey flavour that keeps you coming back for more. This beer singlehandedly made me make a BeerAdvocate account just to review this beer. FANTASTIC.

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.
