3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, clear amber pour with fizzy but fluffy off white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, tropical fruit and Belgian yeast. Taste is surprisingly tart. with a pineapple sweetness. Spicy and funky on the finish with a very subtle bitterness. What is this beer? There is a touch of alcohol in the nose. But other than that, it does not really resemble a tripel. Fairly dry finish, but the lingering tartness inhibits some of the dryness. It is not unpleasant. I think farmhouse might have been a better characterization.

22 ounce bottle from Brusin Ales. Very sweet. Hibiscus and an agave nectar taste upfront and throughout. Not sure what to make of that intense sweetness. Must be the feijoa.

Thought this was pretty interesting. Uite sour in the front. With fruit and typical Belgian notes coming in after that. Could have used some more balance as the Belgian qualities were quite subdued and in the background. Still, quite enjoyable and unique.

Overly tart attempt at a a tripel. thumbs down. Too sweet and cloying. Compared to Karmaliet, missed by a long shot,....

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bottle and served in my big ole Karmeliet glass; Pours a nice golden hue with a mostly lasting frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of tart and tropical fruits, marzipan, caramel and pils malts, touch of white pepper. The taste is quite enjoyable with the tartness of the feijoa countering the normally found sweetness of the genre. Add the slight peppery and alcohol finish to make a nicely complex brew. The mouth feel is moderately slick and oily, a tad dry on the finish. Overall this beer exceeded my expectations, Mikey Likey.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden with a fluffy off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is really fruit, almost wine-like. Taste is sweet and sourish, not cloying. Really fruity/juicy too, with something I would associate with apricots or peaches. Carbonation level was OK, enhancing drinkability. Not bad at all!
