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 at Stagshead. Pours pretty golden with white head. nose if fruity and bready. tastes of vanilla, tropical fruits, yeast, earth, white pepper, light butterscotch. not as big of flavor as really good triples though.

Bottled. Not sure if it was just the branding or what but it really was very tea-like, a pale tea color, tea aroma, tea taste. Not bad but interesting. Could have used a bit more pop.

Draught. Malty without being too sweet. Aroma has some yeastiness. Rathe full bodied. I could not taste the yerba mate.

pours a fizzy, semi-cloudy orange with a very large white foamy head, and good lacing. smell is of bread yeast, floral, and a touch of citrus. taste is chalky, yeast, some citrus, and a funky taste that i assume is the yerba mate. ends dry yet smooth.

Super clear and with a firm persistent head. Sweet pears and a familiar Belgian yeast dominate the nose. Iím not familiar with Yerba Mate but I guess it must contribute a lightly earthy note and heaps and heaps of apple and pear flavor. Some real bitterness and a strange light smokiness mingle with a fruity sweetness.

Pours light amber with a sheet of white. Smells of classic American style triple Ashlee and just a hint of yerba. Taste follows asking the same with sweet notes and a little bit of coriander.mouth feel its a little hi with smooth carb.decent, but nothing special Serving type: on-tap 02-04-2012

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Tap at 16 Tons. Yellow/amber pour with a big, bubbly white head. Herbal and floral with Belgian yeast and light citrus, this one really did not meld together well in my opinion.

THOUGHTS: Nice. Not a great tripel, but a very nice beer. I was a bit tired when I started trying this and the caffeine in it must be very high because halfway through I was wide awake and slightly anxious. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark yellow to very light orange. Letís just call it golden. It had a small, slightly off-white head that mostly diminished and left just barely fair lacing. The aroma had light to moderate pale malts, light-colored bread, and biscuit; light to moderate herbal and grassy hops; light to moderate spicy yeast; lighter earthy hops; slight funk; banana; some sort of herbal tea; and light fruits. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet; light to moderately acidic and slight to lightly bitter. There was pale malt, spicy yeast, slightly earthy yeast, herbal tea, light-colored fruits, honey, white bread, cake, slight funk, biscuit, and floral hops. The light to medium body leaned toward medium and was syrupy and a bit oily and then slightly dry with soft but tingly carbonation and a dry and slightly astringent finish.

Bottle @ 18th RG. Yellow gold with white head and light lacing. Smells like grassy tart bubble gum. Very clean light tart flavor. Slight wateriness.

Poured at the Publican, on tap. Golden color with three fingers white head. Smell is faint banana and clove. Taste is light and crisp, gum and light citrus. Itís decent, but nothing special.
