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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, clear red pour with fizzy but fluffy off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, tart tropical fruits with pineapple, lychee, star fruits, hints of mango in there, going right into floral hibiscus, slight hints of a metallic note in there but not bad, some biscuity bread notes with a touch of caramel. Taste is a mix of sweet biscuit bread up front going right into tart pineapple, lychee and star fruits, hints of mango, slight passionfruit notes, hints of slight spice, no metallic notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter, tart notes follow as well. Based on the earlier reviews, this must have needed a bit to sort itself out, tasting pretty solid at the moment, though the price tag was harsh for the quality.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours rusty color with a thin white head that reduces to a collar immediately. Aroma is different, is that hibiscus or feijoa, not sure if I like that. The taste is odd for a tripel too, not my style I can already tell, experimental for sure, some times they work out and sometimes they donít. In my opinion this didnít work, not a fan of those flavors. As it warms everything seems to blend, I think I was slightly too harsh giving it a 3.2, the overall I will up by one and the taste by one, original score was 3.2, still not my favorite.

Clear amber-yellow pour with small off white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, floral and bread. Taste of yeast, malt, hint of caramel and overpowered by a tart citrus funkiness. Strange beer really but close to be interesting, a little dissapointing.

Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is sweet and flowery (I loved to eat feijoa (pineapple guava) petals from the big plant at the house where I grew up until it was taken out about 10 years ago) with hints of cloves and candisugar in the background. Clear yellow with orange hints and a medium, lightly lacing offwhite head. Flavor is very sweet and fruity with lots of spice and tartness that shows heavily in the finish. Really different tripel.
