4.5/5 rDev +5.4%
A: poured into a tulip glass to a slightly cloudy golden hue with a two finger dense white head with excellent retention and solid lacing
S: smells of fruity esters and spicy yeast with a bit of sweetness
T: very smooth flavors with some fruitiness, some sweetness, a bit of spice, and slight oakyness. Swallow is sweet, fruity and spicy
M: medium in the mouth with excellent carbonation and a drying finish
O: A fantastic beer that I've been sitting on for far too long. The alcohol is well hidden with just a hint of a warming sensation.

3.43/5 rDev -19.7%
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 69.
Appearance - Big white head after a very difficult cork removal. Thick collar. Wispy surface. Golden orange hazy body.
Smell - Bready and estery. A little phenolic. Kinda fruity. A little earthy. Quite oaky. Very odd.
Taste - Belgian sweetness and yeastiness. Extremely oaky. Sweet and estery up front. Doughy malts. Gets earthy and bitter in the back.
Mouthfeel - Boozy. Bitter. Medium heavy.
Overall - An odd beer. A smell I can't quite place. The flavor is complex, but not really a tripel. Points for being interesting.
