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 (10080) - 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.

zgaier (1633) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2014
Pours a hazy dark amber gold with an off white head and aroma of spices and sweet tropical fruits. Taste is sweet, delicious tropical fruit notes, citrus, pineapple, and peaches with bittering hops and spices into the dry, sweet finish. Great, tasty Belgian

chinchill (2988) - South Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2014
portion of a 750ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Pours the color of honey; hazy. Aroma: spot on given the "Tropical Tripel": there’s a substantial note of coconut, pineapple, citrus and other tropical fruits plus a Belgian tripel in the background. Flavor: the base ale makes a stronger appearance in tasting where it is nicely balanced by the fruits and a hint of coconut. Appropriately sweet but eventually leaves a mildly bitter aftertaste.

Bottle with Chris, Ray and Jay. Pours cloudy orange gold with dense of white head and soapy lace. Aroma of oxidized hops, caramel, sun tan lotion, pineapple jizz. Past it’s prime

Ferris (7659) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle - Tropical fruit and coconut, like an odd piña colada. Clear copper with a bubbly head. Peach, coconut, grass and a bitter sweet finish. This is just not a combination of flavors I like.

Draft. Clear yellow amber pour, with a white head. Very sweet, candy sugar, yeast, coconut, and fruity. Not a beer that I enjoy very much. Someone with a sweet tooth would probably like it.
