On tap at CCB. Nose is peach and faint coconut with some very prominent hops. Fruity and hoppy. Nice. Flavor is simcoe hops and definite peach flavors. Very fruity. Good stuff but not at all your traditional tripel.

Une bouteille de 75 cl qui renferme un liquide orangé. Un anneau blanchâtre s’installe comme représentation mousseuse. Au nez, c’est un mélange de fruits du verger et de fruits tropicaux dans lesquels se construisent de douces vapeurs boisées et herbacées. Je sens distinctement les effets d’une levure belge. En bouche, ce sont des pêches et des mariachis qui se manifestent ardemment. Ça goûte aussi la noix de coco et le miel des tropiques. Des copeaux de bois apparaissent sur ma langue. Sur mon palais, j’ai la nette impression d’un esprit belge dans un corps de plage. En finale, je m’aperçois que l’astringence boisée est contrôlée par une levure au comportement délicatement sauvage.

Bottle shared with Timfoolery. Aroma was mostly peach. Solid beer, but just the palate was a little off. Slight hint of coconut, but lots of peaches. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

So much going on with this beer, the aroma is crazy good. Love tropical fruit and zest notes, smells like a super juicy hopped up APA or IPA. The triple taste is there in the body; nice malty bread and the yeast lends that estery banana and clove as well. A really complex beer that is worth a taste

Cloudy, dark yellow, small off-white head. Mild, sweet orange, peach scent. Sticky pineapple, strong, sweet orange malt. Very tropical, with an alcohol finish a la’ Boat Drink. Very tasty.

750 ml bottle- Pours a very hazy orange with a one finger head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, candy sugar, tropical fruits, fresh. The taste is so very smooth, peaches and coconut hit you up front, pineapple and banana are in there as well, this is has got to be one of the easiest drinking tripel’s I have had, the hops bring a mellow spiciness and a dry finish. Brett is there and becomes more pronounced as it sits in the glass. Body is medium and carbonation is pretty high, no complaints. This is a very nice beer, I could drink it all day.

750 c&c from Bine and Vine. Pours orange gold with a creamy beige head. Aroma of peaches and maybe some other fruits. Near full bodied. It is very tropical in flavor, and there’s substantial earthiness. Nice ale.

Thanks Pat for sharing at Diegos. Nice peachy sweetness, candi sugar a bit much at times, but light coconut notes and finish isn’t overly heavy. Cool beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5045) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 Sampled on draft at Fat Heads in Pittsburgh this beer poured a dark apricot-tan color with a medium sized soapy beige head that left incredible lacing. The aroma was tangy sugar, candied pineapple and had a yeasty undertone. The flavor was sweet yet bitter sugar, very strong fruit cocktail syrup and had yeasty and bready undertones. Long tangy and sweet sugar and fruit cocktail syrup finish with a bit of booziness growing. Moderately full bodied. Very nice.
