Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is pineapple, passionfruit, Belgian yeast, and coconut. Taste is similar. The coconut really stands out, especially because it is not a particularly common beer ingredient. Alcohol is well covered by the wide array of flavors. The woodiness is also certainly evident. A lot of things going on here. It is wacky and sort of survives by inertia.

"Peaches and tons of yeast immediate in the nose and flavor. Only later do you get the oak, and juuuust a hint of coconut as it warms. Tropical indeed. Quite fruity, not to a fault, but this is a good/not elite tripel. Finishes dry and sweet."

Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours orange with a very nice, mellow Belgian style aroma. Sweet tropical fruit flavors with maybe a touch of coconut. Starts sweet, and ends really bitter. This is a strange beer, but overall I can say I like it.

Deep golden amber pour. Strong triple, goes good with a batch of streamed clams and corn on the Cobb. Poured from a 750mL bottle. Rich and full flavored. Great for those summer dinners. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle. Pours a translucent dark golden color and lacing. Aroma is sweet and slightly oaky but a little off. Belgian tripel sweetness in the flavor with hint of Brett and and tropical fruit. Interesting.

Had on tap at the Grog. $8.50 for the 8 oz. serving. To cognac snifter, it poured a a bright amber orange with which a whitish-ringed head barely a finger in length stood. Estery, peppery, and vaguely spicy, with hints of juniper berries, white sage, cough syrup and unripe blueberries & raspberries.Had experienced rolling tobacco, Belgian yeast, and fruit leather by swallow. Coconut was credibly pronounced on the aroma; but hid remarkably well while sipping. I could say this was earthy and weird, and just be done with it. And I am.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle... Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet offers sweet malts, a mild measure of farmhouse yeast spiciness and gentle acidity. Medium to full-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is lightly tart, mildly phenolic and spicy. Finishes lightly bitter, tangy, and then dry.
