Drinking from a red solo cup due to current kitchen remodel. Aroma is typical of a triple. Banana esters. Flavour is more on the sour side, delicious! Dieu du ciel! Really liked it.

Bottle with Carla from Belmont Station. pours gold with minimal white foam. Smells flat, somewhat sweet, with a hint of earthy tartness. Tastes of something akin to orange and a hint of wheat, though thereís not as much complexity or malt flavor here as I would expect from a tripel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy pearlescent orange. Smells of soap slight smoke and caramelized malt. So sweet and fragrant like a wine. The taste is so overwhelming only at the end do the flavors start to sort themselves out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Krazy Karls. Appearance: finger of white head, amber orange color, cloudy. Aroma: orange, leathery yeast, light apricot . Palate: average carbonation, light body, good lace. Taste: slightly sweet to mild tartness. Overall, like how malts show through yeast, but not amazing still. Unique for style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Bottle. Golden pour, with a foamy white head and decent retention. Tastes 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.

3.3 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.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Deep amber/yellow. Heavy foam on pour fades to a thin layer. Odd sort of metallic funk nose (which, I just realized, I seem to get from other Lips of Faith beers). Tastes of yeast, floral (specifically hibiscus), passionfruit. Almost tropical in its qualities.
