Five Seasons Westside took their Belgian Style beer most resembling a Tripel or Quad and aged it in 5 different whiskey/bourbon barrels. Each has unique qualities with common threads shared as well.

A: no head  on a cloudy crimson body.

S: pretty much straight up mild bourbon and oak. Nice sweet note.

T: sharp whiskey and booze with woody note fading to a well balanced sweet fruit and bourbon note.

M: medium body and light to no carbonation. Sharpness up front and hurts drinkability.

Overall: least dynamic of the series however still great and a must try. My rating is hard on this one overall but the entire series is excellent.
