Really well balanced combination of style, flavor, hops, barrel aging and ABV, pulled of by a small Belgian influenced brewery in a small beer crazy city.....Loved it.

A: Bright yellow in color, absolutely crystal clear in color with a white head that dissipates fairly quickly.

S: Bug vanilla and oak in the nose with tropical hop aroma, and stone fruit.

T: Big vanilla and oak flavor, followed by sweet tropical fruit, and stone fruit, the finish is a touch of resin, with a hint of booze and lingering bourbon in the finish with a slight Belgian kick.

M: Medium in mouthfeel, with effervescent carbonation, and a bit of a syrup finish.

O: Lovely. A really interesting brew, and my first from this brewery. Sometimes a big hoppy brew can fight the barrel flavor, but this one seems to meld well.

Poured from can into tulip. Semi aggressive pour leaves little to zero head. Orange colored body. Smell is mostly citrus, tropical fruits and some barrel. Taste is where it's at. Soft, sweet mango candy, hints of grapefruit, bourbon, wood and a F ton of vanilla. Nothing overpowering but so well blended. An amazing BBDIPA.
