3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a reddish gold color with a thick white head. Smells tart and sweet, very refreshing with hints of vinegar and citrus. Tastes tangy and refreshing. Hibiscus flavors, fruit (perhaps the feijoa, but Iíve never had that and donít know what it tastes like), very nice yeasty spiciness. Spicy and sour finish, with a sweet end note, like caramel. A bit sticky on the finish, but clean overall.

Amazing and unique tropical fruit flavors on this one. The fruit flavor also packs a tangy punch. Balanced out by some sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Milltown. Pours a clean and sharp blonde with one finger of white head. Nose is EXTREMELY vinous. Smells like Chardonnay... with some tropical fruit and a racy acidity coming through. Tastes like white wine, noticeable acidity/tartness (almost sour...) with tropical fruit and pepper. Very interesting. Couldnít have much.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark orangish color with a small, sticky white head. Aroma of citrus and melon-like fruit. I donít know what a Feijoa is but I imagine it might be that. Mild booze as well. Flavor is fruity, mostly dominated by the Feijoa fruit, some melons and berries. Some booze. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied, slight carbonation. Finishes sweet. This is a nice beer.

A - pours dark ruby orange with almost no head. Very little retention. S - tart and over ripe (near rotting) fruity esters. Very sugary sweet malts. Strange rotten fruit, burning electrical wires, airplane glue, socks??? Smell. A little off putting. M - lightly syrupy mf with odd burning sting at the end, with a lingering malty end. Tart up front, sweet middle, T - tart fruity notes up front. Berries, peaches, apricots. Malty tripel palate. To a sour malty strawberry banana esq esters. Ends with a rotted fruity end. O - off putting aromas and taste. 5

Draft. Clear golden copper color, small but thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of dusty apricots and praches bathed in brandy. Taste is sweet, syrupy, boozy, fruity caramel. Closer to a barleywine than a tripel.

Clear copper pour with no head. Initial aroma of fruit, but starts to smell like model airplane glue after awhile. Taste is sour, then "trippel" taste, then back to sour again. Was told that others seek this one out and it is hard to find. I don't know why. Thinking this might be an $8 drain pour. Not my thing......

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
this had a clear gold-copper pour and made an initial three finger white & off-white head that receded to a thin cover and ring, the glass had a medium flowing center stream of bubbles, it left nice fingers and rings of lacing on the sides of the glass,
I found no sediment in the bottle,
this drink had aromas of light malt, dried lemon fruit and tropical citrus fruit, a little fruit sweetness, and a bit of floral in the background,
there was some faint phenols (somewhat smoke like), and there was some funny, fermented fruit, funk smelling stuff in this drink, I guess it was the feijoa fruit,
it had flavors of faint malt, unripe citrus fruit Ė lemon, green apple, green banana?
the finish had a citrus, lemon sour and tart much like unripe fruit that dried the palate a bit after the finish, the sour-tartness gave a little puckering on the lips, and the unripe citrus fruit sourness hung around a bit after the drink to,
the mouth feel was light and creamy, and had average carbonation,
the nose on this drink was sort of odd but not enough to be off putting, the flavor was better, there was a lot of unripe fruit citrus sour-tartness in this beer, probably a bit too much, this beer was a little bit interesting, but the sour tartness got to be a bit much for my liking before I had finished the bottle.
