2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

[ Keg ][ 6oz ][ Monkish ][ $2 ][ Stemmed Flute ][ 8.10.14 ]
>> Rose orange pour, clear-ish, with weak pink foam. Nose is fresh and citrusy clean, sharp lemon and true strawberry. Taste is sugary up front, sour and boozy mid palate, clean and doughy end with a slightly papery finish. Pretty enjoyable. Higher alcohol unnecessary.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reddish tinted brown pour, off white head. The flavor is tart and dry, yeasty, hibiscus, lemons, tart berries. Nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
