4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is an uncharacteristic saddle blanket/barnyard/funky sour smell. Pours an oragangy amber with a rapidly dissipating white head and minimal lacing. The taste follows the nose. As a triple ??? But, otherwise, this was a very enjoyable beer ( if you like beers on the funky/sour side.) Initially, hints of tropical fruit followed by a funky sourness. Medium-light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall, I want to drink more of this beer.

Poured a slightly murky, light amber with a very faint head. Nose was tart followed right away with pure tartness in the mouth. This came as s surprise to me and though quite refreshing, not what I wanted in a tripel.

Interesting and unusual tripel. Definitely not par for the course. Hits all the typical tripel notes, and had a beautiful deep copper, clear color. However, the tartness borders on sour. A wild tripel?Quite interesting. If you enjoy sours, this is the tripel for you. If you enjoy tripels, this is worth trying due to its unusualness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour is a sparkling clear copper color with a small, fizzy, white head which is mostly diminishing and leaves no lace. The nose is pleasant enough, soft herbal and floral, woodsy, light esters, doughy yeast. The flavor is much fruitier (not sure what feijoa tastes like), guava and apricot, still woodsy, slightly yeasty, and flower petals. The palate is lively, more than moderate, and sticky? The finish is somewhat bland with most of the flavors vanishing quickly leaving fruit and flowers. Decent attempt at an adjunct-laden beer but the fruit really masked the strong tripel beer. The hibiscus was a nice addition, and the beer drank very well for the ABV. The appearance was awful and the sticky mouthfeel was way out of place. I expected more from a Dieu du Ciel collaboration.

Try to find this beer... on rate beer. Who knew. Dieuea de ciel! is so famous. Its a metallic copper brew iwth a white head that looks great in the glass. Skipping the aroma on closer inspection the flavor is immediately fruity, the body light, the palate dry and the excitement flat. Spotty lace, and a craving for the next beverage.

Bomber. Not a bad aroma. Some yeast some tart fruit smells. Can't taste anything weird until it leaves your mouth. Better than a tripel since I'm not a big fan. A little tart which is a nice change of pace. Try when you get bored of the stouts and ipa's.

bottled, orange color with white head, aroma and flavor of organic orange juice that sat in the sun, I am not a big fan of these odd blends. Wish it was more tripel like

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yellow/orangish pour, white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, citrus fruit, sweet honeyed notes. Flavor is tart and yeasty, unripe peaches. Very interesting. if the tartness is something they intended its awesome. Im guessing it is.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with rather thick white head. Nose is a tad sour with some citrus in there and smells very much like a farmhouse ale with a hint of honey. Taste is just a tad sour with some slight spiciness in there. Interesting...
