3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours from the bomber a clean copper color with a caramel-white head that dissolves quickly. A big fruit aroma in the nose with some spice and yeast and floral hints. Tastes are tart fruit, sweet pineapple, mild spice and bread. The mouth feel is somewhat light and bubbly. At 9% itís hard to argue this beer is well worth itís flavor and price but it is so unique I was shock my first glass. I like it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance was clear orangish gold with diminishing creamy off white 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are strang for a triple, some sweet malt backbone with tropical fruits abound then wine like farmhouse yeasts, alcohol well hidden. Taste was dominated by bitter mango, orange, cherry, hibacious then barnyard funky yeasts. Alcohol not noticeable with slightly triple malt backbone. Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then lasting bitter fruity yeasty finish. Triple not, fruit sour brew yes, something amiss here.

Poured on tap it has a deep amber color with a small head. Aroma has some fruits, champagne and a tartness. The tartness continues on the taste along with bitterness and a bit of spices.

650ml Bottle purchased from Beercraft. Pours an orange color without much head. Tart feijoa is prominent, with the hibiscus more subtle. The Belgian yeast flavor balances nicely against the feijoa.

Honey color with white head, nose of spices and light fruit, cherries, banana. Light body with good amount of carbonation. Tangy from the start, dry, vinous characteristics, slight fruity sweetness. Balanced and delicious.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Golden pour, with a foamy white head and decent retention. Tastes like shit (never had shit, but this is what I would imagine it to be like) bitter, feijoa (which apparently I hate), way too tart, and dried fruit. Obviously Iím not a fan of this brew, although I highly appreciate New Belgium thinking outside the box and trying something new. Itís just not for me.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 itís own.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Feijoa - instant sour slap to the face. Infected? Smells of pee and sour berries. Not digging this at all. Poured this shit out.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a mostly clear orange/amber with a 2-finger fluffy white head and good lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, citrus, and fruity. Taste is slightly sour and tart with citrus but also sweet and fruity. Very nice.
