On tap at Bailey's Taproom in downtown Portland.

A: Pours a clear straw-gold in the glass, with a light film that is surprisingly thin for a Belgian tripel. I'm attributing this to the barrel-aging, and I'll give it a pass for now. No lacing.

S: Cloves, candi sugar. Couldn't get anything else.

T: Kind of like a watered-down tripel. Hints of banana, cloves, and a lot of candi sugar. Like a cheap tripel mixed with a faro. It just didn't taste very impressive. Nothing from the barrel comes through.

M: Light-bodied; sweet in flavor, malty finish. Moderate carbonation.

D: I'm not sure what they were trying to achieve here. It could pass for a good faro...

At Oregon Brewer's Dinner

A - Pours a hazy golden with a 1-fingered white head. Dissipates immediately and leaves no lacing.

S - Nectars and cloves. Really cannot get more taste out of this one.

T - Nectar, light sugars, and cloves.

M - Light bodied, malt dominated, sweet, and thin.

D - Not bad. Could be improved with more body and aged longer. Maybe could have fully attenuated.
