This beer pours a medium amber with an average head. The aroma is absolutely sodden with mint, with hints of clove, prune, and wheat whiskey. The flavor is again dominated by the mint, with a strong presence of whiskey flavors, and some spice in the background. It is, as the name implies, strongly reminiscent of a mint julep. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, and very creamy. Overall this is julep like, but the mint really dominates. Make sure you want a lot of mint berfore you embark on this one.

The mint flavor, which I expected to be overpowering, is actually very smooth and mellow. It's yummy, and provides a great counterpart to the usual tripel flavors.

Based on the reviews, this is a Love It or Hate It beer. I can see why. Very, very minty. There are also some light herb and pear flavors. Not a beer for dinner. It's a change-of-pace sipper. My wife, who doesn't drink much, gave it her highest praise, which is "I could drink that." Got it as a tripel pinch-hitter at Mandeville Beer Garden in Sarasota.

On tap. Pours a golden yellow color with a white, one finger head that dissipates slowly and doesn't leave lacing. Nose is an after meal mint. Taste is a little bit of wheat body with a big hit of tooth paste style mint that decimates the taste buds. The faux mint taste actually becomes chalkier and stronger as the beer warms. Medium carbonation and medium body with unescapable mint aftertaste.
I haven't had a mint julep, but I imagine it tastes better than this beer. I pushed through 2/3 of it before I asked for a water to purge my mouth of the mint and get a different beer. Apparently I'm not the only person there who didn't really like it since the bar was giving out a tulip glasses with the beer to get rid of the keg.
