3.81/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

The beer comes in light amber color.

The aroma offers caramel and syrupy sweetness, banana, spicy hops.

The flavor follows with banana, medium syrupy sweetness, a pop of alcohol, prickly carbonation. A surprisingly decent tripel.

Received this one as a gift from a generous BA thanks! Cool upside down label error on my bottle!

Appearance: Pours a murky caramel to tawny auburn with honey folds. The crown is small, dull white, shows little retention and moderate lace.

Smell: Oak, herbal hops, citrus hops, citrus zest, mild whiskey notes, and a hint of caramel / candi syrup.

Taste: Same as the nose.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with prickly carbonation.

Overall: An interesting brew that could use some refinement. The oak, booze, and prickly carbonation kind of work together but overall the beer seems disjointed.
