Dark bronze in color, with a full body and medium carbonation, there is no mistaking that this tripel has been aged in spirit barrels. The brewery says it was bourbon barrels, but there is a coconut and tropical essence to this beer that evokes thoughts of rum. In any case, a turn in the wood takes this otherwise well-executed tripel and turns it up a notch into a cocktail in your beer glass. As it warms, it brings out wood tannins in a soft, faintly fudgy way. John Holl

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
