The Light At the End of the World, an Oak Barrel Aged Collection MMXVIII.
White Pony Microbrewery always makes something special out of it.
This Barrel aged Tripel has matured in Aquavit and Bourbon barrels. This gives it its slightly fruity and spicy flavor, with a typical Barrel Aged flavor that brings out the woody, bourbon and some light vanilla.
As is often the case with beers from White Pony, this Barrel Aged Tripel is also somewhat sweeter, so that the relatively high alcohol percentage (no less than 13.9% alc) does not drink too heavily.
A slight bitterness in the aftertaste finishes it off nicely.
The Light at the end of the world, hopefully we will not see it too soon …, but if it has to come, preferably after I have been able to taste this White Pony!
