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.

Tap. Pours clear gold with medium, creamy white head; short retention and good lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, pears, cookie malt, spice, and grassy hops. Flavor is heavy malt, light hops, and medium esters; dry finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

mansquito (4479) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Blind Tiger, NYC tap ($7.50): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is banana, clove, citrus, and tea. The tea did much more to this beer than I though it would, providing a somewhat unique taste. The taste is also quite sweet, as per usual with tripels. Hops are pretty minimal, but provide a little bit extra. Good, but not that great.

boFNjackson (4192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle... Poured golden amber/orange with a thick, bubbly, eggy head. Nice lacing and retention. An extremely refreshing beer. The matte creating a soothing palate with a hint of smoke and phenols. Smooth, belgian yeast esters and spices. Earthy hop flavors and floridness. Citrus, grassy tones and a hint of malt sweetness to help the body.

hayduke (4123) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat, he in Illinois and me in Idaho. Poured a cloudy gold with a big white head and a lot of big lacing rings. Nose is spicy. Medium in body. Lively in mouthfeel. Flavor is very interesting, and keeps morphing with every sip, but always stay tasty. The yerba mate is a great addition. Really enjoyable and unique.

BuckeyeBoy (4068) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 9, 2015
22oz bottle. Starting with this one and worked threw all 12 at the same time. A fun line up do do all at once. Pours out a hazy orangeish golden topped with a fluffy head. Nose is spice light herbal notes and some yeast. Taste is more of the spice herbal notes and some sweetness.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bomber from State Line, Elkton, MD. Cloudy golden pour with a fluffy, silky looking head. Nose is very dry, which I vastly prefer to the estery mess of most American tripels. Playful mouthfeel, a pretty significant spiciness on the palate. And more of that to taste, as the brew is grassy and yeasty as fuck. Noble hop additions benefit the brew, and what might be a fairly anonymous base is enlivened by this among other additions.

Bottle at Aaron’s. Thanks man! Pour is hazy orange with big white head and great lacing. Herbal, tangy, apple skin, doughy, green apples, old cider, pears, and tannic aroma. Taste is medicinal, slightly smoky, biscuit, straw, lightly spicy, tangy, green apples, and old malt with a spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really weird shit.

drjay44 (3089) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2012
650 ml. bottle. Pours aa medium white head, with some lacing, over a clear gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light pear, hints of apple, bit of floral tones, cereal...taste is pear, apple, hints of floral honey, light sweetness, later hint of green pepper, leading to a slightly harsh bite from the hop yerba mate combination which lingers....mouth feel medium, carbonation low. This meets the style, with the exception that pepper aromas and flavors are too hidden. The use of the yerba mate as part of the late bittering in the taste palette is quite clever, but does not really get to the same place that the more typical recipes do. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7
