3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A wonderfully interesting beer with slightly tart finish, this triple doesn't have as much effervescence as I would normally expect of the variety. Hibiscus is apparent, as the floral notes show up front and center on the palate

Draft at crunchy's. copper color with a thin head. Big clove and slight banana aromas. Sour banana flavor in a really not good way. Bile-esque. Smooth and clings to the too of your mouth. Bleh.

Took a while, but finally figured out what this was. Draft at Mekong. Medium gold. Aroma is tart apricot and floral, well, hibiscus thanks to Dieu du Ciel. Flavor matches but I wish somehow it had been crazier. Good base tripel working under it all. Tartness didn’t quite work here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A solid attempt and exotic offering in the NB LoF series. The addition of feijoa fruit provides a gooseberry-like tartness. This aspect is complimented nicely by the hibiscus, which reminds me vaguely of herbal tea. If they had embraced the sour nature of these ingredients and gone with a sour fermentation rather than tripel, I feel like the components would have been better married. I would recommend this beer if you are looking for something to drink on a day at the beach, or if you want a well paired, though extremely experimental beer. Kudos for the craziness.
Interesting collaboration, but I feel like each NB offering has a similar malt component which makes them taste more or less the same. Interesting, but not revolutionary or even all that impressive. A little overpriced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark golden color with a minimal head. Aroma is slight hint of yeast and tart apples. Taste has minimal yeast , the tartness is more prevalent with apples and jibiscus coming through. This is advertised as a trpel but those are usually sweeter. This came across more like a sour. Either way, I realky liked it.
