Bottle shared with timfoolery. Way too many floral notes goin on in this for my taste. It covered up the tropical flavors and sort of tasted like flowery perfume.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium frothy white head. The aroma is strong clove and fruity malt. Medium mouthfeel with light fruit flavor, spice, and clove. Good.

Bottle from Rare Beer Club. Aroma is more Tripel and peach, rather than coconut. Palate could be better. It really shows bitter notes after the peach. Flavor is about the same. Pretty good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at FH, 10 Aug 13, this is a surprise, I looked to see Cigar City on the menu and had to order it, nose is lightly coconut but more belgian profile, the taste is hearty coconut meat, milk and sweetness on the lips from the peach.. really interesting brew but not something I’d want to drink daily.

Dogbrick (8113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2013
On draught at 101 Beer Kitchen. The beer pours a mostly clear dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pineapple, yeast and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of peaches, oaky vanilla, malt and yeast. The finish is fruity with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

tobias (202) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
750ml corked bottle: pour is like liquid gold. Pure white head. Complex aroma of earthiness, peach, citrus, cream, with hints of coconut. Similar flavors are present in the taste. Peaches and cream. Slighty sweet but balanced. Complex flavors! Fruity, earthy, funky. Very drinkable. If it wasnt so pricy, i would drink this regularly.

Pours orange. Nose is coconut, fruits, sweet caramels, toast, so much coconut. Flavor, sweet but not cloying, finishes surprisingly dry for its sweetness. Interesting and good but a lot going on.
