Out of the three in this Barrelhouse Collection, this was the least disappointing. Not at all what I expected.

A 1pt 9.4 fl oz corked and caged bottle with a best before date of 1st February 2018. Poured into a Chimay goblet glass.

Appearance: A clear dark copper orange colour with a slightly less than two finger off white head that had great retention, eventually settling down to a nice creamy layer, while leaving great curtain like lacing.

Aroma: Belgian yeast, banana, clove, honey and pear with hints of spice.

Taste: Some light banana and clove at the beginning, followed by spice, candi sugar, orange and pineapple with quite a strong hit of alcohol on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, full bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: It looks great, and smells nice, but the strong alcohol on the finish was quite harsh in my opinion.

Really good triple with notes of spice, sweet and zen good vibes--- bravo!! Puts copper amber hue with lacey small head that fades fast. Nice tight carbonization.

Picked up a 750ml caged and corked bottle from TW Arrowhead in late July for $9.99.

Beer poured golden with a beautiful white head that has some excellent hang time.

Nose is apple and pear, very nice.

Taste is apple and pear with a nice pepper finish.

Mouthfeel is excellent, classic Belgian smoothness rules making every sip finish with near perfection.

Overall this is a surprisingly excellent beer. Definitely on par with the better Belgians Tripel versions!

Very good for a Belgian. I surprisingly didn't find this too sweet. It tastes of malt and fig newtons, with a nice bouquet of floral and sweet hops, and of course a hint of oak. The body is excellent, very full with a perfect head. Drinks light for such a thick beer.

Pours somewhere between copper and gold with nice carbonation and a smallish but long lasting head. Smell is quite good, sweet and bready, with tons of fruit. Taste is equally sweet, but not overbearing. It is pretty heavy on the ABV, but it conceals it beautifully. Finishes spicy and you can really taste the oak barrel...This is a very good brew, especially coming from one of the big guys. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth. Well done, Sam.
