brenn79 (1723) - Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2013
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 (5521) - 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.

Bottle @ Greg’s dump, picked up at Supermarket Fort Collins. Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with an off white head. A bit herbal/woody, apricot, tropical fruity, lightly metallic aroma. Tangy, vanilla, juicy peach, apricot, juicy, a bit woody, bubble gum flavor. Some aspects I enjoy of this beer while others I don’t really.

A truly great, sweet, & full bodied Tripel. More on the sweeter side than spicy, with a hint of coconut finish. This is an amazing Tripel for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted from draft. Pours a cloudy orange with white head. Aroma of orange, tropical fruit and earthy yeast. Taste is orange, peach, belgian yeast. Heavy malt sweetness. Hint of coconut. Slight bitterness at the end. Excellent mouthfeel. Really clings to the palate. Medium bodied. Really a well balanced beer. I really like this beer. Hides the alcohol very well. Another great beer by cigar city. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
