3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Clear yellow orange color. Thin white head. Dots of lace. Lightly citrusy, kind of limey aroma. Light banana. More acidic than I’m used to from tripels. Medium to bigger body, but it doesn’t feel very full. Lighter carbonation. More dry in the finish. Interesting, different tripel, but it seems a little flawed.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex tropical citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nice attractive pour ... silently still, amber, quality head of sticky white foam. The aroma is certainly continental ... hinting at a Belgian golden avenue. It drinks with a more aggressively sweetened angle than most ... with big time, syrupy fruitiness rolling right over the top. Sticky in the mouth too. Delicious. (#5016, 5/10/2013)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber to snifter (thanks Tmoney99). Looks solid; a completely transparent burnt-orange with off-white lacing. Smells of dough and Belgian yeast with notes of what I can only assume to be feijoa and a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a subpar citrus zest mouthfeel. Not my thing.

Bottle courtesy of Dark Guardian. Hop and spice aromas. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Spice and almost citrusy hop notes with a hint of orange zest. Decent mouthfeel and body.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a golden-brown with a one inch head that lasts. Taste is of fruit, hops, malt, yeast and some spice. Similar aroma. Has a decent body. The finish is pungent and sour. Gets easier to drink as you go, but the alcohol kills the ability to drink it. It would be a better brew if it was lower in ABV. Far too strange and unbalanced. Unique and unheard of flavors are good when balanced or made recognizable, but in this case the different flavors are used as a ’What was that?’ punchline. Though the brew brings flavor, it is less than harmonious. Honestly, one of three beers that I have decided not to finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I have no idea what a feijoa is, but I assume it tastes exactly like this beer. Clear ruby with a short fizzy head. Aroma is fruity and tart. Tastes quite sweet, with some tart fruit and finishes dry. Great patio beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by John on Sunday morning after TAP-NY, in his hotel room. While Ed did not have on any pants. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft banana, toffee and some gentle floral aromas. Spicy and tangy. Tastes a bit like the flavor that occurs when you drink orange juice after brushing your teeth. Tart and tangy. Warming alcohol on the finish. Very interesting.
