COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
NIBIRU, named for the mysterious planet X supposedly on a collision course toward earth. Nibiru is a Belgian style tripel flavored with an infusion of yerba mate. Combining the yeasty esters of Belgian yeast and the compelling tea-like flavors of the South American herb mixture, with German Northern Brewer, Czech Saaz and American Amarillo hops round out the uniqueness of this first beer of the Apocalypse.

Bomber shared by MaltDawg at the 18th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of spice, tea, bread, tin, stone fruits. The taste is sweet bready malts, tea, earth, bitter hops and faint toasted malts. Medium bodied, low carbonation, lingering spice.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Tap at Elysian, Seattle, 27/05/13. Clear light golden with a thin off white head. Nose is rich in caramel, dark fruits, light spice, boozey notes, yeast esters. Taste comprises summer fruits, caramel vein pumping throughout, light yeast notes, sugars, citrus. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light booze notes in a sweetish finish. Ok tripel, the booze and sugar are fairlt well balanced.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle thanks to a trade! pours a hazy orangish amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a decent amount of light fruit with a bit of tea, a sweet grain backing and a nice amount of sweetness. Flavor is sweeter with a good amount of grain and only a hint of light fruit and grassy hops.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle:   Fiery golden, moderate to large frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Pale bready aroma, faint floral or herbal notes.   Very pale Tripel like flavors on the tongue.   I like this in that it isn’t overly bready and thick, but it seems pretty simple.   Clean as well.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Herbal finish, slightly bready, a touch sweet.   Enjoyable.

after4ever (6089) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Draft at special brews. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with a creamy thin off white head. Classic green apples and sweet cream nose showing plenty of dust as well. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Dusty, toasty mid palate with apples and sweet cream, dark dusty finish. Solid tripel.

mcberko (6043) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a mostly clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of apples, pears, candied sugar, cotton candy, bubblegum and some tea. Flavour of some odd spices and herbs, with dried apples and pears, sort of tea-like quality I suppose, and yeast. Medium complexity with some odd spices which I assume are from the tea.

DrSilverworm (6033) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2012
22oz bottle, shared. Mostly clear, orange-gold color. Little white head, bit of lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation. This is an interesting tripel... Some interesting earthy notes here, along with the light spice that you’d expect. Dry texture. Light bitter taste, some spice. Interesting augmentation
