750 ml bottle into chalice; 10651509 code on the cap. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lightly tart lemon, lime, apricot, peach, pear, green apple, white grape, red wine, oak, pepper, honey, and bread; with light vanilla, hay, straw, herbal, grass, leathery funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, wine barrel, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart lemon, lime, apricot, peach, pear, green apple, white grape, red wine, oak, pepper, honey, and bread; with light vanilla, hay, straw, herbal, grass, leathery funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate peppery yeast and tannic wine/oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, apricot, peach, pear, green apple, white grape, red wine, oak, pepper, honey, bread, vanilla, hay, leathery funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, wine barrel, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from spicy yeast/oak tannins, increasing through the glass. Medium-high carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/tannic, and slightly acidic balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden; a slight warmth lingering after the finish, with zero barrel booziness. Overall this is a great wine barrel aged Brett Tripel. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, wine barrel, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A bit heaver than I expected for the style, but not overly sweet. Great presence of the wine barrel; with a nice level of funky Brett complexity, and adequate dryness. A very enjoyable offering.

A: poured into a snifter to a deep orange with some gold highlights topped by a dense three finger white head that retains well and leaves decent lacing
S: Smells of honey and melons with some grassy notes and a little orchard fruit
T: Taste is tartness nad some oak up front with some melons and stone fruits, clean doughy malt along with some added sour notes. Swallow is some funk and hints of band ait with some lingering sourness and orchard fruits
M: This beer is on the heavier side of medium in body with soft but adequate carbonation and a dry finish from the acidity.
O: Overall this is an interesting beer. It's an odd take on a tripel but I kind of like it since sour beers are kind of my thing. The base beer is definitely a tripel but this one has more than just that going on. If you like sour beers this is one to try but don't expect your standard tripel.

Nice funky yeast and floral notes. Minimal wine and wood character.

I got the black-and-white "scrap metal" label on a 750ml bottle for the US market (you're not supposed to show hamburgers on the label in US unless there are hamburgers in the beer!). Pours an attractive amber gold, slightly cloudy. Attractive. Head is 3 fingers and rather slowly dissipates, ending up with a foam island in the middle and sloppy lacing.

Aroma is lemon, a boozy wine tinge as well. Ever so slight spice as expected for a tripel but not very strong.

Taste is spicey, and also hoppy to me. I get bread and yeast, and also the wood from the wine barrel, very mellow and the gesture towards farmhouse/ tripel is muted. Can't quite put my finger on the spice; user BlurryVisi0n says rye with salt on top, by god he's got it. I sorta wish it wasn't salt. It finishes with a bitter buttery feel. Not bad Belgian style ale.

As it warms the wine barrel characteristics really start to come out. Feels boozier too. Like but not love, and at the price point I'd have to pass the next time.

Served in a snifter glass from the tap.

Appearance: Amber body which has a little paleness to it and comes off a bit cloudy. Head is about one finger's length wit a vigorous pour and dropped before the first sip. No lacing but he beer looks pretty good.

Smell: Lemon and hints of wine. Super light scent, just an FYI.

Taste: Sweet lemons with dose of light yeast. Grapes and little honey.

Mouth: Sour finish kinda messes with your palates a little bit. Has lemon skin and juices and feels a bit bready...think of the a bite of rye bread with a little salt on top.

Overall: Descent brew but wouldn't hunt the world for it. I picked it up on tap with just wanting to try something a little different.

Quite a nice beer, overall. The flavor contribution from barrel aging works very well, but does distract from the Belgian characteristics.

Pours hazy with an orange-copper-gold hue. Moderate to low head that persists. Aroma of Belgian yeast and phenols with underlying spice. The flavors are dominated by red wine, but are nicely supported by the phenol contribution from yeast and slight tartness along with lasting citrus. Mouthfeel is medium to light with medium carbonation.


The range and complexity of flavors are really nicely pulled together. It's very different for the style, and perhaps overlaps a great deal with saison flavors. Then again, the barrel aging sets it apart regardless. Style guidelines aside, a very nice beer.

Slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma has a predominant yeast character and some lemony notes. Taste starts slightly sweet, with nice yeast esters, floral and fruity. Also some subtle farmhouse notes. Smooth body with medium carbonation. Really nice on. Usually I don't enjoy tripels very much but this one stands out.

Amber in appearance, a vanilla oaky aroma, a mixture a tropical fruits are prominent and make this an easy drinking beer.

Poured from a bottle into a modified tulip glass at 40 deg F.
A - Blood orange, dark honey in color. A little coaxing leads to a 1/2" cap of froth that lasts for quite some time. Steady stream of champagne size carbonation rises steadily and relentlessly to support that cap.
S - Initial nose is muted, almost subdued. With time and temperature, an explosion of dried pineapple, mango, oak, honey dew in late afternoon warm all rush to be noticed.
A fine Khorosham bread note supports those fruits. Belgian sugars and yeast dance together well.
T - A sharpness that must be the yeast keeps this out of balance. lots of overripe tropical fruit, orange blossom honey and sweet malts are all present. The triple aspects are all on display for certain, fine oak notes run quickly through and quickly exit.
F - Wonderfully rich, slightly slick with a linger that overstays its welcome. The sweetness leads things off, with time however that ever so slight hop bitter moves things along.
O - This offering is billed as a triple, and a wine barrel aged farmhouse? That's a lot of ground to cover for sure. Exceedingly complex with a rise in temperature, smooth in body and form this is quite a treat, certainly worth the experience.

Cheers

Poured into a 3 Monts tulip. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a fine three finger cream colored head with great retention and pillowy lacing. Aroma of orange, light lemon, saison yeast, hints of other fresh and tropical fruit, inviting. Flavor is very interesting; starts with mixed fruit, notably orange, grape, pear, and mixed tropicals. More intense lemon develops through a quite bitter finish of tripel spicing, citrus rind and bittering hops as well as buttery oak. Really different and flavorful. Light to medium bodied with peppery carbonation. A very innovative but quite tasty take on the tripel style. The mixture of fruit flavors is outstanding. The finish is very astringent, which is too bed because the earlier mixture of flavors is overwhelmed. However, a spice astringency is expected from tripels and fits the style well. There is nice buttery oak in the finish, which does not reveal the red wine characters, but definitely a great barrel wood element. I really enjoyed this ale and wish I had another for a later day, but it evaporated in my area immediately. I will get it again if I see it.
