Pours light orange with fizzy white head. Nose is of fruit cocktail. Taste as some belgian/banana spice with pineapple and nectarene. Not bad.

Golden pour with a white head. The aroma ha some grain and oak notes as well as some tropical fruit and peaches. The flavor has a lot of coconut, peaches, oranges and oak. Fairly sweet overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Floback (539) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a murky blonde/orange colored body with lots of white head. Light fruits, subtle sourness on the nose. Flavors abound with notes of candy, cotton candy, peaches with cream, vanilla, subtle metallic finish. Medium/high carbonation and light/medium body. ABV masked very well. Bravo!

rxeight (1796) - Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2013
750ml bottle. Peach and pineapple. Belgian spices. Thin. Just like the name says, mix of tropical and belgian tripel. Good but not my style.

poisoneddwarf (1915) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - OCT 18, 2013
750 ml corked and caged bottle. Aroma is strong in coconut and pineapple (or is that the peaches?); oak comes out as it warms. Pours hazy orange with a one finger off-white head with decent retention. Taste is sweet and savory with a light bitter hop bite in the finish. Flavors of tropical fruit, coconut and wood with the Belgian yeast in the background kind of stretch the definition of tripel. Fine carbonation, medium body. Nice beer. Addendum: the Brett is undetectable for 15 minutes or so out of the fridge; after that, it starts to present itself--a light dusty, musty character. After 20 minutes or so, the peaches are dominating the aroma and are strong in taste.

(750ml bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of oak, peach, yeast, pineapple, and coconut. Flavor of coconut, peach, vanilla, oak, banana chips, and dried apricot.

OmegaX (1330) - Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2013
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.

SlovakSniper (3710) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2013
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.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - OCT 15, 2013
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

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2013
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
