22 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a mostly clear orange/amber with a 2-finger fluffy white head and good lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, citrus, and fruity. Taste is slightly sour and tart with citrus but also sweet and fruity. Very nice.

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.
