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.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2013 Bottle
Aroma: Tropical fruit, distinct belgian banana, oak, vanilla, subtle tartness
Appearance: Nice, clear orange/amber with lacing white head with good retention
Taste: Initial taste is not distinctive and a bit bitter. Notes of fruit and oaky smoothness in midpalate and finish. Fruit juices sweetness.
Palate: Medium body and mouthfeel. Warming alcohol sensation. Chalky, peach skin bitterness toward the finish
Overall: Aroma promises more fruit than I pick up in the taste. Alcohol seems to subdue the subtle fruit flavors.

750ml from the Rare Beer Club. Slightly murky pour, medium orange with a fluffy head and delicate lacing. Wood chips mask most of the coconut in both the nose and the taste but kind of enhance tripel’s bite and sharpness. This made it far less sweet to me than some have found, although the tropical fruits are certainly anything but muted. I found the peach to be more like peach juice, sweetish, and there were hints of papaya too. Interesting.

750 ml bottle. Sweet. Really sweet. Tropical fruit. Honey. Shades of coconut. Not sure on this one. For the price, maybe not a hit. Unless you like super sweet tripels.
