3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber at Maxs. Hazy orange-tan body. Thin, steady, glass lacing head. A pretty nice Tripel, on the sweet side. Not really on the level of a good Belgian, but decent enough. Sugary, the yerba mate doesn’t do much.

"Pretty nice beer though not a standout by Elysians hefty standards. the traditional aromas and flavors are all there...bubble gum and a bit of clove, with some light fruit and citrus, and it’s also got a grassy herbal bite, which is unique (but not something i;d want all the time. nice warming feel."

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a thick, hazy straw color with a very large, foamy, off-white head with great retention, but lighter cling and lacing. The aroma featured floral hops and yeast, along with some grainy notes, and of course a modest presence of yerba mate. Its taste was a blend of sour grain and yerba mate with a lighter floral sweetness in the beginning. The yerba mate flavor became more pronounced as the beer developed, and tasted surprisingly similar to the actual herbal drink. It had a very dry body and mouthfeel with a somewhat harsh, dry finish, and had average carbonation and life. Not a bad beer, and worth a try, but yerba mate and beer are not an ideal combination.
