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.

Bottle shared by Dr. Silverworm. Poured clear amber color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex spice citrus & yeast aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced bittersweet citrus flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Balanced drinkable beer.

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

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.

PacNWDad (107) - Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Poured from a 22oz bottle into an ale mug. Rich golden color. The slightest bit of cloudiness - is there a secondary fermenation? One finger of head on the pour, dissipates fairly quickly, but a bit lingers for quigte some time. Not much lace on the sides of the glass - just a few dots here and there. Aroma is different than I would expect. Some malted barley. Some esters and phenols, somewhat like papaya. Some grassy notes. Flavor is reminiscient of Duvel - rich and sweet, with some of the earthy almost peaty flavor I get with a Belgian blonde. Decent amount of hops from the boil, perhaps the herbal qualities of the yerba mate as well, means it finishes dry, almost astringent. Rich body, with mild carbonation. Overall, a fun beer and I am looking forward to the next installment from one of my favorite local Seattle breweries.

chicowv (463) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2012
22 oz bomber: Pours light orange with a light white head. Seemed light for a tripel. Aroma is sour, slightly grassy hops and bready yeast. Taste is peaty, slightly smoky. Complex with nice malt and good balance. Slightly bitter on the finish.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Pours a hazy golden color with a white head that fades quickly and leaves hardly any lacing. Smells of biscuits and light Belgian yeast. Tastes likewise with some tropical flavors and has a semi tart aftertaste I’m assuming from the yerba mate. Mouthfeel is very light with hardly any carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this was kind of dissapointing for a tripel. I don?t think yerba mate and Belgian yeast mix well together. Not terrible just not what I expected.
