2016 Craft Beer Cellar Advent Box: Day 6

Advent Beer Day 6:

A good Belgian triple with yeast sourced from Chouffe.  The yeasty esters are fun, if a bit stronger than I'm used to with other triples. I can't remember the flavors from the last time I had a Chouffe to know if it is closer to their style. The initial aroma almost put me off, like an over-sour barley wine, but the flavors were not as sour. I enjoyed it.

There is some confusing information on the internet about the ABV. Almost everywhere on-line it is listed at 6.7%. My bottle was labeled 8.5%. I wrote to the brewery. John Laffler from the brewery told me that 6.7% was listed on the initial label approval application and was later adjusted to the actual ABV of 8.5%.
