A great tripel. Pours a nice orange with a white head. Smells like tropical fruit with a hint of coconut. Taste had many layers. Starts off smooth and creamy, then gets some tropical fruit. Finishes with more coconut and a slightly hoppy finish. Had on tap at Beer Cafe in Walnut Creek. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nose of pineapple, mango, yumminess. Taste is similar. Like a fruit bowl. Slightly sweet with some alcohol warming. Low on the phenols. Good stuffs. ---Rated via intercellular device

Pour is yellow/orange with white foamy head. Aroma is sweet malt, belgian yeast, fruit, slight hint of oak. Taste is sweet fruit, peach, and esters of the belgian yeast. Not getting any of the coconut and even the oak is very subdued. Would have rather seen them go overboard with the extras rather than be so subtle.

Bottle. Peachy tropical citrus and coconut aroma. The coconut becomes more apparent as it warms. Hazy honey gold with a small off-white head. Sugary sweet peachy malt, coconut, and light herbal hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. The hopiness in the finish is at odds with sweetness of the peach. It’s a personal preference, but I almost always dislike the combo of peach and hops.

On tap at the Louisville Beer Store. Pours hazy amber/copper with a lacy head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some light peaches and other fruit notes, some pale and caramel malts, and some light hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

dfinney23 (1752) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2013
This really makes me think of a blend of Kona Koko Brown and Kona Big Wave, which is no bad thing. Toasted coconut and tropical fruitiness. Not a great tripel, perhaps, but a tropical triumph.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Coconut and oak aroma with yeast and light citrus. Citrus/tropical fruit flavor with light nuttiness and yeast. Medium bodied. Citrus/tropical fruit lingers with coconut, yeast, and light spice.
