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

Pours a hazy light copper with a white head that settles to a film and leaves good lacing. Aroma of peaches and honeycomb with some underlying Brett character. Taste of peaches and some light fruit with some honeyed biscuit and light herbal flavors. Finishes semi dry with some belgian yeast flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Interesting flavors.

2014 bottle. Pours a dark urine color with a small off-white head. Aroma is light peach and honey. Taste is peach and sweet coconut with some Brett flavor in the middle. Finishes with a dry herbal taste. Watery mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jahshuwuh (483) - USA - DEC 31, 2014
Color is a dull copper color, fairly clear, little bit of white head that sits on the surface. Smell is a funky peach, oak, pineapple, coconut is faint. Taste is a funky Brett horse blanket, bready, peach, coconut is more apparent in the taste, a spicy hop in the finish and the bready Belgian yeast with caramel malt, banana. Interesting, but the Brett doesn't mesh well with the tropical tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2014
From bottle at POUR. Smells like waxy honey, sweet. Not much else to the nose. Golden amber clear with thin white head. Medium-heavy body with medium-light carbonation. Sweet with honey, beeswax, coconut, like a tropical fruit or coconut-mango Lifesaver. Mild warming with sweet musky finish. Don’t taste any Brett here. Sweet tropical after.

Have you ever had coconut and mango flavored Jolly Ranchers? That’s pretty much what this tastes like. Bottle at Pour on Center. This is basically a tropical fruit piece of hard candy in a bottle. Nose is all mango and passion fruit, some mild coconut. Light in color and mouthfeel.

mansquito (3998) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Owl Farm, Brooklyn tap: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is pineapple, passionfruit, Belgian yeast, and coconut. Taste is similar. The coconut really stands out, especially because it is not a particularly common beer ingredient. Alcohol is well covered by the wide array of flavors. The woodiness is also certainly evident. A lot of things going on here. It is wacky and sort of survives by inertia.

slowrunner77 (6755) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2014
"Peaches and tons of yeast immediate in the nose and flavor. Only later do you get the oak, and juuuust a hint of coconut as it warms. Tropical indeed. Quite fruity, not to a fault, but this is a good/not elite tripel. Finishes dry and sweet."

Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours orange with a very nice, mellow Belgian style aroma. Sweet tropical fruit flavors with maybe a touch of coconut. Starts sweet, and ends really bitter. This is a strange beer, but overall I can say I like it.

Deep golden amber pour. Strong triple, goes good with a batch of streamed clams and corn on the Cobb. Poured from a 750mL bottle. Rich and full flavored. Great for those summer dinners. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle. Pours a translucent dark golden color and lacing. Aroma is sweet and slightly oaky but a little off. Belgian tripel sweetness in the flavor with hint of Brett and and tropical fruit. Interesting.
