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.

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 isnít 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.

Draft pour at some obscure beer festival in Alaska this past January. Clear golden color with white head. Pils malt, candi sugar, earthy mate, dry spice aromas. Medium bodied. Earthy mate flavors with pils malt, candi sugar, spicy yeast--good Trip

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of passion fruit and other fruit notes, along with some Belgian yeast and some biscuit malt. The flavor is completely different. I get the same tropical fruit and yeast from the aroma, but I also get a big load of herb notes - which I assume is from the Yerba Mate. There is also a light amount of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle: The aroma consists of apple, banana, yeast, and faint herbal notes. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that leaves behind some nice webbing. The flavor starts with apple, banana, and yeast. The finish has pepper, cinnamon, herbal notes, and a touch of alcohol. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

Strykzone (5897) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Bomber from Hayduke. We had a bottle together via facebook chat. This is lightly hazed golden with a foamy white head. Sticky lacing remains. The aroma is herbal but there is so much going on in it. Spices, malts, and more. Interesting and unique. The flavor almost matches the aroma for uniqueness and is at least as interesting. There are spices, malts, herbal notes, sticky fruit, candi sugar, Belgian yeast, subtle hops. This beer was so much fun to drink. It was all over the place with flavor and changed personality so often. Thanks Ron!

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 doesnít do much.

Amber gold in color, hazy with a thin head. Big Yeast and spice aroma. nice backing with malt and the infused Yerba this made for one tasty brew that will protect me for the future.

ben4321 (5071) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 8/16/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet, some fruit, spice, Belgian yeast, cookie, candied sugar and light tea
Appearance: It pours a hazed golden color with a small, slightly fizzy white head, and light lace
Flavor: The taste is moderately sweet, yeast, tea, a plus-spice component, and a light bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a fizzy carbonation, a clean feel, and a slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Here goes the 1st of the series, which is my 3rd (in reverse order from 3-1). Anyway, this one is pretty interesting. The nose is rather sweet, but the sweetness is balanced out by the spice and light bitterness in the flavor. Overall, it works decently well, but it isnít a standout.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spices and tea, some light spice from the yeast, pale and caramel malts, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer.
