This beer is amber color with some red notes in it. A very nice color for a beer. I think the color suggest that it will be spicy. The head beautiful. Huge, thicky but disappear quickly. It is almost a perfect color beer. The aroma is complex. It is fruity and I get some sugar notes with the presence of apple brandy. The smell is so good, I have to give it a 5.

In the mouth, the beer is warm, fruity and I get the sugar too. I get also some floral notes. On the bottle it says there is some tobacco notes, I would guess it is the floral I get on the taste side.

The beer is full body and feels mellow in the mouth. This is an excellent beer for special occasion. The drinkability is excellent for a 10%ABV beer.

This brewery knows what it is doing. One of the best brew I had so far since I'm drinking craft beer.

Nice pale golden color with lots of carbonation and a good ehite head. Some funky smell kinda like wild yeast. The taste, WOW! There's a nice apple taste, a mild bitterness too. Really fruity and not boozy at all fro a 10% beer.

Pours a cloudy orange colour with a thick 3/4" white head, lacing is almost immediate. The head lasted the entire time. Looks close to perfect. The nose is insanely complex I got lots of yeast, apple, brett, citrus, bread, earthy notes as it warmed vanilla and caramel showed up. Also faint notes of alcohol are there. The taste is as complex as the nose. Big apple is present, oak, fresh bread, yeast, brandy with a nice candy apple sweetness. Nice mouthfeel, full but not overpowering. Very, very drinkable but with its price tag this may be my only shot at it. Outstanding.

Much love to Freud for bringing this down for me. He said he bought it 01/2010. Stickered at $18.49.

750mL brown glass pry-top champagne bottle. No date marked.

Appearance: Pours a murky amber with some bone white tight head.

Nose: I could smells Brett the second I poured it and it's all over the nose somethin fierce. Green apple and toffee, egg-washed bread rolls, Grand Marnier (props to sleepnbballrlife for that note), herbal digestif. Complexity level is off the charts. Started out as dominated by Brett and now it's all about fruits and herbs.

Palate: Crisp and lively carbonation. The green apple thing is dominant, followed by charred wood, braised herbs, plum (props), a little prickle of alcohol. The finish is all about lifted notes: high notes of apples, some piney saaz-like hops and that alcohol just lift everything up to an ethereal high point of awesomeness.

Notes: THE most complex beer I've had from Canada, bar none! This is an absolute delight to drink. The barrel aging has added complexity, not white-washed it. All too often barrels just tromp the nature of a beer, but this seems to be a case where it's much better for it (although, to be fair, I haven't had the regular release).

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Amber/ gold, with little head. Tiny bubbles with decent lacing.

Smell - Fermented fruit such as lemons, pineapples, apples and oranges. Fermented apricots. Candied orange. Sour and tart on the nose. Cider-like. Sourdough bread, caramel, white wine, Very nice.

Taste - Subtle lambic characteristics. Green apples, cotton candy, coriander, grape peel, lemon, subtle cloves, Belgian candi sugar, brandy, Saison funk, Saaz?, pineapple, fermented apricots and more. Subtle oak/ wood notes. Again, cider-like. Nicely spiced. Light yeasty/ sour aftertaste wraps up everything.

Mouthfeel - Very nicely carbonated. Quite strong, which I feel works well with this ale. Stimulates all areas of the mouth. Sticky and syrupy. It doesn't get much better than this for a Tripel!

Overall - This is a very impressive Belgian-style beer. The barrel aging and apples is a great idea. Sweet and tart notes are perfectly married with the bitter wood and hop notes. A bit pricey, but definitely worth the investment. A+.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance. Pours a hazy gold-amber with two fingers of thick white head that paints the side of the glass.

Smell. Apples and pears, some nice funk, apricots and honey with a little booze. Yum.

Taste. Tangy fruit and funk. Mainly apples and pears with a little strawberry and citrus fruits. Oak and brandy are present in the end. Alcohol is there, but not in a bad way.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with pretty high, lively and smooth carbonation. A little warm.

Overall. Pretty decadent tasting beer here. I like the funk and the complexity while still remaining somewhat light. A little bit boozy, but it works.

750 ml bottle, batch #1. Amber color with white head. Fruity nose, something punchy; a bit woody; a little citrus like grapefruit; a bit of spice, cinnamon mostly and a bit of alcohol. Fizzy carbonation but it fades quickly and provides full mouth feel. Taste is spice, sour oakbarrel but with a nice bitter finish that provides excellent balance. The alcohol is quite present, warming but not unpleasant. Pricey but definetely worth at least a try.

Bottle has month and year numbers on the label, but nothing ticked off. I picked this up only a couple of months ago, but I expect it is from 2010, as that is the latest year available to be ticked. Who knows.

Pours a nice golden orange colour. Reminds me of marmalade or caramel. A large off-white head bubbles and dissipates at a moderate pace.

At first, it smells like a good but standard tripel- light fruits (peach and apple stand out), Belgian yeast, caramel and bready malts, honey. Also a little bit of funk along with the yeast. Then the barrel effect starts becoming noticeable- very nice undertones of brandy, booze, spices, vanilla and oak intermingle with the tripel. Really good.

The barrel flavours are more immediate in the taste. Vanilla, brandy, apple. Beer has some booze flavours, as well as some spice (pepper in particular). The peach and other light fruit flavours are present, and backed up by the caramel malt. The whole thing is very well integrated and incredibly well-tamed. The alcohol heat is almost zero, despite the strength.

Beer is very smooth, velvety. Carbonation is present but incredibly restained- micro bubbles that give life to the beer but do not interfere with taste or irritate.

Overall? Excellent. A tremendously good tripel. The barrel effect is fantastic- interesting, well-integrated and tasty. Great stuff!

Appearance: Vibrant, moderately cloudy orange. Slightly darker than orange juice. Two-finger, very aromatic head that rapidly fades with very slight lacing.
Smell: I got a bit overenthusiastic here on the fourth sniff and accidentally snorted it. Most prominent is strong, tart crab-apple. Slight orange and just a hint of grape. Wild yeast and phenol.
Taste: Moderate orange and lemons right on the tip of the tongue. Grape is very noticeable in the middle, with a slight carbonation burn. The back packs a very hefty dose of tart, but sweet, crab-apple with an even tarter yeasty finish. Extremely powerful, but delicious finish. Spicy burn travels right up the sinuses on the finish, spreading the tasty ester smell throughout the nose. Body is light, but the esters and carbonation help the flavour travel through the whole mouth.
Overall: An very tart and spicy beer with nice complexity that is everything a Tripel should be.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - slightly hazy, light orange, whispy white head persists, effervescent,

S - funky, soft fruitiness, doughy, peaches, pears, light spice, smells pretty interesting

T - dry, light wood, but very fruity, tons of ripe peach/pear/apple throughout, funky barnyard, earthy, spicy, not sour or tart, but has some acidity to it, aftertaste is funky, dry earth

M - well carbonated, the beer is dry and easy to drink, but there is a sensation of full body in the mouth, carries the flavours very nicely, very smooth, alcohol is amazingly well hidden

D - just about perfect execution on a very complex beer, most impressive

There is a lot going on here. Many times, I find "complicated" beers don't always have a high success rate, but this one pulls it off. You get a little bit of everything, but not all at once, it is not muddled, you can enjoy different nuances with each sip. It is dry, but not bone dry like some beers (RR Damnation, Duvel), which brings out the fruitiness that much more. The apple brandy barrel aging adds complexity to the fruitiness and the wood adds to the dry finish.

Definitely one of the most interesting and complex beers I have ever sampled.

Thanks to Hoser for the recommendation and making this beer available, glad I picked up a case!

Bottle received in trade from papat444 in July, 2010. Thanks! Popped open to celebrate the birth of my third child.

A: Copper and clear with a nice white head and cap that retains very well, although little lacing is apparent
S: Apple juice, pepper, light caramel, some sort of funky aroma joins the party over time.
T: Pepper is the dominant player with a sweetness from the apple. Very, very nice, although the apple dominates at times. Finishes very dry and peppery. Some sort of barnyard flavours are playing in the background too.
M: Dry, no discernible alcohol character.
O: Deliciousness... How can I get me another bottle of this?

750ml bottle, part of Trou Du Diable's first bottling run. Seems to have been a success, I hope to see many more bottles from this brewery.

Cloudy and a dull hay colour. A huge, thick off-white head recedes to a solid covering over the surface, sticking around until the end. Awesome lacing.

Nice, big funky smell with apples, candy and light floral hops. Really unique, there's a lot of stuff in there I can't describe.

Spicy, hard liquor of some kind (brandy I suppose), apple juice (the fresh-pressed kind), musty, sweet, bitter, lemony, astringent, a touch funky. So smooth at 10%; feels like it could be 6-7%. The alcohol is well incorporated. Very complex and yet well-balanced. Really interesting.

Sparkling carbonation with a medium body; seems to suit the beer well.

Easily one of my favorite Canadian brews and definitely one of the most unique. For the 10% ABV, this is crazily drinkable. Hope I get the chance to pick some more of this up sometime.

750ml bottle into a tasting glass. Thanks, Tony, for sharing this obscure treasure.

A: Clear medium amber body with a finger of soft, pillowy off-white head. Good retention and lacing. Lovely.

S: Rich + vinous, with caramel malt, apple, grape-skin, grapes, oak, and vanilla. Excellent.

T: Starts out oaky and vinous, then opens up with toffee sweetness, vanilla, and more oak. Rich and delicious.

M: Hugely lively, with tons of roiling carbonation filling out the medium body. Fun.

O: This was just a delicious beer, plain and simple. The wine barrel was a perfect compliment to the malty base Tripel, as the vinous components went great with the apple esters and the vanilla oakiness blended beautifully with the caramel malt. Fantastic stuff.

750ml bottle poured into abbey glass july20 2010

A clear copper with plenty of carbonation feeding a thin film that leaves a few patches of lace

S quite fruity with some apple, pear, pineapple some earth and that barnyard funk that's a treat for the nose

T thankfully it tastes like it smells but with a fair amount of hops, I do pick up a little booze but it's pretty well concealed for 10%

M mild bite to it just a slight booze burn and plenty of carbonation

D may not be a bad thing this bottle's being poured into a few different glasses, don't get me wrong I could drink this all to myself but it could be dangerous

yet another thanks to hoser for a chance to try this brew it's pretty tasty. anyone who can should try this beer

Edit- just cracked a bottle from the first batch so its over 5 years old and drinking great, plenty of carbonation, foam retains forever, funky and fruity, this one could go for a few more years no problem

One of my dearest friends got married this weekend. She's the manager of a wine bar, and her new hubby is from Chile, so they both know a thing or two about the good stuff. I wanted to break out something special for their post-reception, post-brunch barbecue today, so I pulled this bottle out of my meager cellar and shared it with the couple and her parents, who have always been as good to me as my own.

No brandy snifters available out by the pool, so we used wine glasses. Poured a stunning golden orange with a huge, fluffy white head that refused to dissipate. One of the nicest looking beers I've seen.

The smell has a huge amount of gingery spices and green fruits. A little bit of vanilla. The apple brandy comes through clearly from the aging. The brett gives it the faintest twang.

Fancy fancy. Got a lot of the Calvados in the flavor, along with the barrels themselves. Slightly bready malts and that tiny bit of funk. Something seems slightly buttery, maybe? The alcohol is warming, but not unpleasant; this could cause problems if you're not paying attention to the ABV.

Nice, full body without being heavy on a hot, humid day wearing jeans by the grill. Carbonation seems medium-light, but the bubbles just keep on coming somehow. Very nice.

Overall, a fine beer that pleased the wine snobs and the beer snobs equally. Worth the price to have shared with special people on a special day.

A: Unfiltered light honey color with a creme white head. Good retention and correct lacing.

S: What a great nose! Of course this is very fruity. There are lemons, green apples, strawberries, orange. Eventually, the apple brandy (aka calvados) is very present. Strong scents of vanilla, light honey and white sugar. Some oak in there too. Light scent of spices: cinnamon and cloves. Some floral elements in the smell. Very complex, inviting and pleasant smell.

T: Wow, never thought the barrel aging would come off THAT strong in the taste. Very strong taste of calvados, vanilla, oak, pepper and leather. Good malty sweetnesses of light honey. Spices are stronger here: pepper (like mentioned before), cloves, coriander and cinnamon. Also, very fruity: lemons, green apples, strawberries and oranges.

M: Medium to light body with medium carbonation. As expected with strong belgian pale.

D: Dangerously drinkable at 10 ABV. Very complex, yet not intimidating, sweet, yet not cloying, dry, yet not too much. No alcohol in sight. If you don't watch yourself, you'll get drunk pretty fast.

Recently found my notes on this beer, written before the night slipped away from us.... big thanks to eat for providing this sought after bottle!

750 ml, pours a slightly cloudy golden, a hefty bone white head builds on the pour and slowly recedes to a thin layer, leaving spots of lacing.

Smell is delightful, fruity (apple, pear, oranges, apricots) mix with a light funky Brett, hint of wood and spicing.

Full flavored, a touch of the brandy comes out in the flavor that wasn't there in the nose. Light barnyard funk, slightly musty, apples and pears, a hint of citrus, oak, juicy yet a little tart, perhaps a touch more alcohol coming through than I would like but not distracting. Sparkly but not prickly carb, medium body, pretty drinkable except for the ABV heft. Reminds me a bit of Allagash's brews....

Top marks for this coming from a Canadian brewer. Perhaps a touch rougher than some of the more refined examples coming out of Belgium and the US but for a 1st go around this is a huge winner. Would love to get the chance at this one again, if I were to see it I would certainly grab a few. Highly recommended. Thanks Colin!

Finally get around to reviewing this.

Poured from an undated 750ml. bottle and shared with my wife.

Appearance: Fuzzy peach color, very hazy and the color is lightly reflected in the huge head. It's not too big though and clings pretty good though would have expected more retention.

Smell: Fresh apples, peaches, apple peelings, brandy peeking through and a light wood aroma.

Taste: Apple brandy brings out a semi-sweet fruit flavor and mixed with the Tripel base, it's pretty darn good. Dried apricots, mild vanilla, bit peppery and a cascade of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Starts sweet-tart but comfortable, lingers just a tad before finishing dry.

Overall: Nice to have a world-class beer locally (though it is hard to come by). A bit pricey but worth it.

Although I'm inclined to think that this will age nicely, I've never had much patience and I'm more of a immediate gratification type person.

A - Pours a murky copper colour, two thumbs of big bubbled head with solid retention (5ish minutes), sporadic big bubbled sticky lacing and solid body carbonation.

S - Intense scent would be an understatement as this is quite complex. Scent is fruity with pineapple, pear, apple cider and brandy on the finish.

T - Much like the scent, the flavour is quite intense as well, again dominated by fruity with the apple, pineapple, and grapes coming through. Some caramel and toffee notes are also present with some maple syrop on the finish. The heat from the ABV is noticeable, but not overpowering. Bready malts linger on the tongue.

M - Full bodied ale, lots of carbonation and a bit of a dry finish. The heat from the ABV doesn't come through in the mouthfeel, which is nice.

D - A very tasty offering indeed, and I'm very glad I picked it up. A bit on the pricey side, but well worth it. A great beer to enjoy for any celebration, and a well produced example of a Belgian Strong Ale. Complex flavours are memorable making this a very enjoyable offering.

From 3/6/10 notes. Had at a local DC tasting.

a - Pours an orange, amber color.

s - Smells of apples and brandy. Hints of oak and maybe some other fruits, little bit of funk.

t - Follows the nose, apples and brandy mostly. Hints of pears and oak.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth.

d - I really enjoyed this beer. I thought it had a great apple and brandy mix that was quite enjoyable. Would love to have this again; the only thing that hurts it is the price ($30 for a 750 ML).

One of the beers I enjoyed before the evening descended into debauchery and my memory became increasingly hazy. This one came from eat - thanks for sharing, Colin, been looking forward to this one.

Copper pour with a creamy white head, which shows the barrel aging obviously hasn't done a number on lacing and retention. Everything a beer aged in apple brandy barrels and pitched with brett should smell like, mainly apple brandy, brett, wood and vanilla. Nicely balanced, and I like the mild funk coming through the apple brandy flavours. No one element comes through too strong, though the apple is probably the most prominent. The brett is nice and adds a drying nature to the finish. Medium carb and body.

Cheers Colin!

From a 750 ml brown bottle. Pours out an appealing opaquely hazed amber hue, spongy white head that quickly settles to a creamy cap.

Sharp tart acicic aroma of Bretts reigns supreme, with notes of wood and cidery apple in the background.

However the flavour holds far more balance than was anticipated from the aroma. Mild caramel malt with hints of toast up front, bittersweet spicy acidity from the yeast and Bretts reveals itself in a refined way throughout the middle, while finishing with wood and a slight hint of apple. The aftertaste is amazingly clean for the style. Low alcohol warmth throughout. It's like the funk and flavour of a classic Belgian Pale but dressed up in a double-breasted suit with shiny spats and a fresh haircut--refined!

Medium-full mouthfeel, smooth yet well-carbonated, especially on the finish.

A solid ale on its own, yet one of those rare instances where the sum is still greater than it's already fine parts. The barrel-aging, and the choice of an apple brandy lacing helps to not only add to the flavour profile, but also helps tone down the acidity of the yeast. Even now with the still somewhat clean aftertaste I have a beautiful non-invasive ghost of apple barrel to enjoy on my palate.

Bottle dated 02/12 750ml into snifter.
Special thanks to ricochet173 for another amazing bottle.

Was quite the gusher when opened. My counter enjoyed some of the spoils :-)

Hazy, unfiltered apple cider colored pour. Half finger, tight bubbled, fizzy off white head. Lacing is decent.

Sweet apples, tart grapes, some pear skin, slightly tart aroma with a touch of funk. Sweetness from the brandy, a light oakiness with a peppery finish.

Peppery and sweet, grapes, raisins, apples, a touch of lemon, some digestive cookies, a bit of alcohol and a little brandy in the finish.

Light to medium body, high carbonation, slightly warming.

Thanks BlogueDeBieres for this!
750 ml bottle poured into a tulip, bottle was a gucher, but didn't lose too much.

A- A clear golden/orange color with a two finger white head.

S- Tart crisp apples, some tart grapes, sweet, candy sugar, brandy, oak.

T- Tart apple, sweet malts, some candy sugar, brandy, oak, slightly earthy finish along with some floral notes. The base is a nice sweet Tripel and the barrel and the tartness work well with it.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- A very nice beer, nose doesn't smell like a Tripel but the taste is very Tripel like. Flavors are well balanced, very enjoyable, worth seeking out.

Brother and I Trudged all the way to Volo from BeerBistro in a head wind snowstorm, wearing slippery leather soled shoes to try this one.

A: It's pretty dark in Volo, but the head seemed nice and lacing was quite pretty.

S: The kind of beer that makes your face go :O and a really gay sound comes out of it when you take a whiff. This is incredibly unique and well crafted. There definitely needs to be more Brett infected triples out there.

T: This was everything the nose was and more. Buttery (in a good way) Oak, toasty malt, perfect balance with the brett character.

M: A real winner here as well. Medium bodied, not sticky

D: Well I sure could drink a lot of this if I were a wealthy man. I understand this is probably a labour intensive beer, and the laws of supply and demand come into play as well, but should I really have to pay $55 with tax and tip for a single bottle of beer?

Anyhow - this is great - try it if you can find it.
