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.

Sampled at Vermont Brewfest. On-tap but maybe via bottle.

A-Hazy orange. Even the sample pour had some head to it.

S-Didn't even know it was a Tripel, had to look at my guide. Then I realized this was the barrel aged version. Made more sense afterwards. It's like the apple brandy barrel swept over the more aggressive aspects of the Tripel and soaked them in sweetness and mellowed them out a bit. It also added some light funk. Sweet barrel and apple with a perfumey aspect.

T-Interesting to say the least. Sweet brandy mixes with the maltiness of the beer. Funky yeast flavor. Sweet flowers. Booze soaked bread. Light wood. Pears and apples.

M-Creamy. A bit sticky. Some alcohol heat. Soft carbonation.

O-A treat. This one didn't stand out all too much at the time but thinking back on it now I kinda wished I was more ready to indulge in this beer.
