Ferris (3909) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle - Tropical fruit and coconut, like an odd piŮa 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.

Another rare brew cracked open by my cousin - thanks! This had a tangy aroma, and a sweet & sour flavor. I also tasted lemon, a yeasty bite, and muffin. Things went awry a little with the presence of lager-like hops. Pretty good.

At a Cigar City collaboration beer event at Congregation Ale House. Big Mango taste here. Then a wallop of coconut. But mostly wicked sweet. Tilted to tropical and less Tripel.

Tap. 12 oz tulip at bulldog NE. Two finger head and orange color. Fruity smell and tropical. Creamy waxy body and taste probably from coconut. Complex finish. Alcohol sting is there but subtle. Made me feel the tropical sun...kinda.

Aarond (150) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is oak, coconut, booze, spice, peach, funk, pine, and barnyard. Appearance is cloudy amber with a thin white head. Taste is oak, Brett, funk, spice, peach, barnyard, and toasted coconut. Medium body with moderately low carbonation. Overall a great blend of flavors. Very enjoyable.

gendv138 (1206) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a honey gold with a finger and a half of off-white head. Aromas of tropical fruits, light coconut, dankness, stone fruit, yeast, light funk. Tasting notes of tropical fruit, stone fruit, light tart, yeast, a little booze on the finish. Not much coconut in the taste, perhaps it lends to the sweetness. Pretty solid collaboration between De Proef and Cigar City.

JStax (2974) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a chalice. Pours a hazy copper color with a white head of bubbly foam. The aroma is mostly bubblegum notes, but there are hints at leach and coconut if you try real hard to pick them up. The taste is sweet and estery with a bit of funk coming through especially toward the finish. Tropical fruits are strong here and the coconut in particular comes through.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
750ml served in a Tripel Karmeliet tulip A - Dark burnt orange, hazy with 2 fingers of sudsy foam on top. Minimal lacing with a solid cap. S - Clean orange cream aroma, fresh laundry washed with Gain, limes, good amount of peaches, clean tropical fruit, mango, papaya. Birch wood starts pooping up as it warms up and turns into a clean oak character. Watermelon, candy, T - Zesty citrus, tropical fruits, papaya, mango, Belgian candy sugar, sweet candied malt, lemon/lime fruit comes through and grows stronger toward the finish. Hints of salt and muted minerals are peppered in with a sweet and steady malt. The tropical fruit dominates and the finish leaves you with a semi dry finish. M - Full creamy feel with the carbonation lifting it off the palate. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! This is not a typical tripel but this beer sings in a harmoniously tune that is unreached by many. Perfectly executed with full flavored tropical fruits and somehow has a dry and peppery aspect that hems it all up. Very clean fruity aroma that you just donít find in most beers. I didnít get the coconut or any funk that I was expecting but time will tell with this one. Highly recommended Serving type: bottle 08-17-2013
