3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, clear red pour with fizzy but fluffy off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, tart tropical fruits with pineapple, lychee, star fruits, hints of mango in there, going right into floral hibiscus, slight hints of a metallic note in there but not bad, some biscuity bread notes with a touch of caramel. Taste is a mix of sweet biscuit bread up front going right into tart pineapple, lychee and star fruits, hints of mango, slight passionfruit notes, hints of slight spice, no metallic notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter, tart notes follow as well. Based on the earlier reviews, this must have needed a bit to sort itself out, tasting pretty solid at the moment, though the price tag was harsh for the quality.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of bubble gum, ammonia, detergent, cotton candy, pepper.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
A horrible creation. Artificial and chemical nose is truly disgusting. Sour and dirty flavor experience almost prompts expectoration. Shows pretty much zero effort. Sheesh, how low can NB go?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours a cloudy dark amber with bright medium amber edges and a dense and creamy tan head. Lots of sheeting lace. Big tangy floral and fruity nose, a little funky too. Smells pretty overripe--the floral notes are dense and syrupy, and the fruit has that pulpy decadent smell to it like itís so ripe itís going soft. The funk, well, that could be any of several factors I suppose. Thereís a bit of egg yolk there. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Tastes like a mix of pink peppercorns, caramel syrup that got superheated, and some carbonic bite. Everything is trying to be louder than everything else in this beer, and it gets out of balance because of it. Knocking out that egg yolk and giving things some room to breathe instead of stepping all over each other would help a lot.

Bottle, golden orange pour. Fruity aroma, some fruit I am aware of feijoada perhaps. White wineiness, touch of tartness. Fruit forward flavor, mumbled jumbled flavor. Doesnít seem to work. Fruitiness out of wack.

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.

"Awesome aroma, like a fruity white wine, with notes of hibiscus, pineapple, soft honeysuckle. Taste is almost as good, with hints of yeast as well, and well hidden alcohol. Really liked this one."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a big herbal/floral note, citrus juice, doughy malt, Belgian yeast and an odd note I can only assume is the feijoa fruit. The flavor has much of the same with some grapefruit like bitterness to the finish. A different spin on a tripel.
