COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-style tripel ale spiced with hibiscus. Heavily infused with hibiscus, the beer displays a pink tinge. The beer greets you with a malty sweetness that quickly dissipates into a dry and tart grapefruit, lemonade finish.

on tap Better Weather Fest. Aroma is weak malts weak belgian spice and mostly hibiscus. Appearance is cloudy with thin head. Taste is similar to aroma and quite sweet. Palate is much too thick for a tripel. Overall I wanted so badly to like this but...

ABUSEDGOAT (2335) - California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Reddish amber color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is floral (going out on a limb here and saying hibiscus) with notes of yeast, light caramel, somewhat fruity. Medium bodied, alcohol hidden well, fairly sweet. Doesn’t seem like a tripel.

Blairgus (2563) - California, USA - MAY 16, 2014
16 may 2014, bottle. Pinkish orange, clear, no bubbles. Nose is slightly sweet, pink flower petals, maybe some saison yeast. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Sweet, rock candy, flowers, moderate alcohol. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - APR 27, 2014
Interesting cloudy copper/red color on the pour. Sweet berry aromas with mellow spice flavor and a smooth silk like mouth feel. Gota like the alcohol to taste ratio.

birdmachine (165) - San Jose / San Luis Obispo, California, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Sample pour, thanks to the employees at Central Coast. Aroma is sweet, orange, some herbal quality, yeast, spice. Pours cloudy amber with small head. Taste is up front orange, malty, semi-sweet some spice. Body is medium with medium-low carbonation. After taste is spice and orange peel. Overall not a bad tripel, but the hibiscusis really hard to pick up on, maybe even absent from the overall profile. Lot’s of fruity aspects to the beer to take its place.

daknole (8941) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Reddish tinted brown pour, off white head. The flavor is tart and dry, yeasty, hibiscus, lemons, tart berries. Nice brew.

dansac (89) - Loa Angeles, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Smells very nicely; hibiscus comes forth, belgian yeast, lots of sugar. Pours gorgeous hazy amber dark brown-orange. Mouthfeel is medium carbonation. Taste is sweet, medium to full body, with LOTS, and I mean lots, of malts. It makes it seem more like a dubbel at times than a tripel. I think this is a little too maltforward for my tastes, as far as triples go. It is also conceptually deficient: ’feminist’ would be better off showing a beer that is usually taken to be ’light’ in a very forward context; say a fruit beer going big on body and flavor profile. Still, a very nice and competent beer.

Definitely the bear at the brewery. Nice floral on back of tongue. No bitterness. Nice head and unique red color. Sweet floral very light lemon. Easy to enjoy. Surprising the abv. Tongue would suggest lower abv. Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beersearcher (2315) - Glendale, California, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Great to see this in Bruery style bottles. Pours a reddish brown color. I first get hibiscus notes. Followed by a dry, antiseptic Belgian yeast strain. Puts cranberries in mind for some reason.

marcus (6361) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle from Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours dark brown with a thick beige head and a treacle aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with lots of hibiscus and, yes, a lemonade finish. Doesn’t taste much like a Tripel aside from the candi sugar feel that somewhat overcomes the hibiscus.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Capped 750 from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours sort of copper blush with a transient white head. Aroma is malt and floral. Med body. Flavor is somewhat malty with floral going somewhat citrus. Not getting much Belgian yeast/spice/fruity ester. It’s drinkable, but for me the malt is a bit much. I’d never have thought this was a tripel in a blind test.
