this is the 2nd beer from the barrel aged collection that i have had. this is a good beer, but the "13th hour" had more going on. the smell of this new world triple is somewhat plainer than the other, not to say that this one is bad. the taste is also a bit more mild. this one is smooth and sweet with a warmness brought on by the 10%abv. there some mango and spices mixed in here maybe apricot- reminds me a lot of dried fruits. makes me want to try others in this collection when i can find them.

Absolutely brilliant looking beer - glowing orange-gold with a huge head of dense white foam that really never recedes and lays down thick streaks of foam on the glass. Aroma is rather muted - faint alcohol esters. Palate opens up - orchard fruits, mild spice, rosewater, bit of vanilla on top of a clean crackery malt base, mild herbal hoppiness. The smoothness at 10% is pretty remarkable and it's well balanced and extremely drinkable. Just needs more expressive flavors. And where is the oak?

Bottle was purchased at brewery January 2011.

Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow, good white head, leaves generous lacing

Smell: Fruity, zesty, some malts, spices, very much a good example of the style

Taste: Fruity, cloves, spices, malt, and a bit of a yeasty bite

Mouthfeel: Full carbonation, medium body

Overall: An excellent brew, but it offers little over Duvel, which is much easier to obtain, and easier to open.

Pours a nearly clear amber gold, two inches of yellowish white head dissipate pretty slowly from a pillow to a film.

Smells of fresh cut grass, coriander, lemongrass, bananas, esters, cloves, citrus zest, apples and bread.

Apples, bananas, citrus, fresh grassy grains, cloves and light bready malts combine in the taste.

Full body with an expansive, stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth. A bit of booze warmth.

A damn fine trippel, more than I expected from this to be honest. Really very good, definitely worth trying and perhaps one of the best American attempts at this style I have had.
