Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of fruit and floral notes. Tart flavor at first that mellows to fruity/floral flavors and a nice malt character. Very complex and refreshing. No sign of that 9% abv either. Solid brew.

I have no idea what a feijoa is, but I assume it tastes exactly like this beer. Clear ruby with a short fizzy head. Aroma is fruity and tart. Tastes quite sweet, with some tart fruit and finishes dry. Great patio beer.

Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is fruity and a little funky, can definitely tell it will be tart. Flavor is tart as expected, some apple flavors. Finishes rather dry.

It smells lite and pleasant, on the sweeter side.... The flavor is overly sweet covering any flavor that I would enjoy... Minimal to no malt character... Just juicy sweetness.

light gold with healthy white head. Flavor/aroma is fruity (almost tart fruit) with a light berry hop flavor and touch of bitterness. Mildly spicy yeast. Delicious and drinkable. Got me a little tipsy at lunch here.

Oh, so much better than its rating. Pours clear orange with a short head. Decent retention and solid lace. Interesting aroma showing plenty of hibiscus. Bright floral along with fruit, spice and nutty malt. Light sweet, medium tart flavor. Medium viscosity, slick texture, good carbonation and a long, tart, dry finish. The amount of tartness was a pleasant surprise. Big fan of DDC and this beer.

Smells tart and wild fermented like a strawberry someone has kept in their armpit. Salty banana flavors come from the yeast. Sharply acidic and citric like under ripe strawberries. Would be good with cheese. Not very drinkable on it’s own.

Celebration time! New Belgium in Ohio! New Year’s! Well, this first offering doesn’t leave me overwhelmed, but I know NB has a lot more to offer. This triple in nicely handled, but doesn’t hit all the right marks for me--somewhat falls flat. Caramel, sweet, mid hop,

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a finger of white head. Settles to cap in minutes with some sparse lacing. Aroma is belgian, fruity, moderately sour/tart, tropical fruity, and floral. Flavor is fruity, mango, pineapple, mildly sour, hibiscus. Mild belgian ale background but the fruitiness of the feijoa is dominant. However the fruity tart character is pleasant. Alcohol is quite well masked. Soft carbonation, medium body, crisp texture and a smooth finish. A fruity, mildly tart, interesting tripel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong tropical fruit aroma with mango, pineapple and grapefruit (never tried feijoa so I don’t know the smell/taste). Bubbly brownish copper with a large foam. Interesting fruity flavor. Tons of tropical fruits topped off with Belgian yeast. Very dry finish with some hops, biscuit and dried caramel. Overall, this is not bad at all. A very unique, fruity Tripel with a pleasantly dry finish. I’d give this an A rating.
