wedgie9 (2487) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Tasted on 5/9/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours hazy light orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to average, even lace. The nose is very funky with nice barnyard, lemon citrus, some spicy yeast, and a nicely sour note as well. The flavor is all of the same, with the funk, citrus, spicy yeast, sour note, and some added caramel malt that I didnít detect on the nose. The body is medium with average carbonation and a very long nicely sour and bitter, with plenty of funk finish.

vyvvy (4396) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Pours hazy yellowish orange with a small white head. The aroma is heavy on the chardonnay aspects, some buttery oak, spicy hops, somewhat rich malt and light citrus. Fairly thick body, but there is a lot of fairly sharp frothy carbonation. The taste starts off with lots of crisp spiciness, mild brett funk, citric acid, pepper and some lemon character (sorachi ace?). The finish has some astringency, grapes, light oak and alcohol warmth. Pretty good, but doesnít resemble a triple much to me..... and thatís fine by me.

2015 bottle. Foggy golden yellow with lots of particulates and a small white head. Aroma is sour and cheesy with sweet orange and grapefruit. Taste is the same with wet straw and some spice. Tangerine. Has a sharp, somewhat acidic, bitterness at the end. Wet and dry mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmoreau (2682) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a presentable layer of soft white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was yeasty funk, citrus as lemon & orange, pit fruit, light spice, and some oak, and vinous hints. The taste contributed a medium bitterness that was earthy, and a bit tannic in itís astringency, decent carbonation, in a medium body, with a lightly tart, and rather dry finish. Well made, and a tasty addition to our session.

kermis (5969) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours hazy yellow with a small off white head. Aroma of Brett funk, malt, fruit, wood and light spice. Flavour is over moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A fine example of how to mess around with a dull style and make it great!

zach8270 (3690) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2015
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Yellow/orange pour with a soapy white head. Slight funk in the beginning with some sweet malts and vanilla from the barrels. Flavor is lightly sweet at the start and throughout the middle into a dry and very lightly tart finish.

jahshuwuh (454) - USA - FEB 14, 2015
Hazy orangeish brown color with bubbly white head. Smells citrus sour, barnyard funk, perm, apple, oak, cheese. Taste is a funky sour up front, acidic, a sweet honey hop bite, with a finish of oak, vanilla, caramel. Interesting take on a triple, maybe a little too schizophrenic. Transforms from sip to finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (813) - Missouri, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a cloudy honey orange with a small white head and good lacing. Dark specks visible in suspension. Aroma is slightly tart with some lemon citrus, light fruit, earthy funk and some spicy hop character. All of those notes follow through to the taste along with a lactic tartness, hints of vanilla, musty wood and a light acidic bite into a dry finish. Somewhat soft mouthfeel with a medium body and moderate/high carbonation. Doesn't fit neatly into the Tripel style guidelines but does its own thing, to good effect. Interesting depth of flavors that ultimately work.
