Bottle from capitol beer. Pours light gold with not much of a white head. Lots of lacing on glass. Taste reminds me of tea with a peach

Draft. Peaches on the nose. Appearance is a murky golden. Taste is, honest to God, like an orange flavored tootsie pop before you get to the center in the best way. Really different, and i like it. Palate is really sweet. Overall, a different beer in a good way. Would buy a bottle to hold on to. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Interesting blend of spicy black pepper, peach, and slight coconut. Very sweet with slight bubblegum and orange zest flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Amber pour with a nice big white head. Nose is quite fruity. Nice peach, some hints of coconut, pear, and pineapple. Light alcohol, oak, and caramel malt. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side. Caramel, peach, and pineapple. Light tartness of tropical fruit, some oak, straw, and alcohol.

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a clear orange copper with a thick white head. Sweet orange nose. Flavors of cardamom and orange and tropical fruit. Sweet finish.

750ml c&c bottle shared by Ed. Poured a hazed tea brown body with a smaller faomy white head. Aroma is sweet, candi sugar, dry tropical fruits, bad bread, syrup, some light wood and a touch of candle wax. Medium bodied with average to slightly stronger carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of mango, tropical fruits, dry sugar, yeast, dry bread and some cat piss as well. Decent beer, thanks Ed.

I’ve really had a good time trying beers from this series. I must say, this one (and the one done with Hair of the Dog) is a real winner. Slightly hazy copper pour, with a white head and some translucent white lacing. Nose is mango and peaches with a slight belgian yeast fruit / pepper thing going on. Taste is excellent - big fruity flavors of peach give way to a dry oak character and finish with fruity hops and bitterness. Really well done. I don’t pick up any coconut anywhere, but the beer just works.

750, corked and baled. Thanks, C! Pours a clear medium golden amber with a thin white head. Intensely ammoniated nose, very much a catbox effect. Creamy medium body, a little reedy and sticky. Some light fruity notes on the mid palate, showing coconut and peach, but mostly a dry husky quality from residual sugars. Not very organized and not very clean.

Lukaduke (2362) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a rich golden color with a finger or two of thick white foam. The nose is ripe with tropical notes that mingle with sweet belgian yeast esters. Touch of peach, pineapple, creamy coconut, vanilla and light spices. The palate is round and full with nice juicy tropical notes mingling with classic belgian tripel flavors. Nice fruit in the finish... worth trying for sure !

Draft. Golden pour with white head. Very mild aroma, some light citrus and oak tones, with fruit. Flavor comes across as a tripel with woody and light fruit undertones. Very smooth, must be the coconut.
