Amazing and unique tropical fruit flavors on this one. The fruit flavor also packs a tangy punch. Balanced out by some sweetness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a twenty-two ounce bottle into a Riedel Overture beer glass. An overwhelming amount of subtle nuances from nose to palate, starting with a perfume of rose and orange blossom water, lightly roasted almond and peanut, then rounding into melted butter on grits. Scant head with hairline lacing, but shines in color that vacillates between dented gold and skillfully cut ruby gemstone. The palate is akin to solving a puzzle as it does not reveal itself with facility. Eventually struck upon raisins in rice pudding, caramel popcorn, fresh berry sweet tea, with an undertone of cherry blossom petal. Very drinkable, with texture, flavor, and acidity comparable to a cranberry vinaigrette. A beautiful experiment overall that requires time and patience to understand.

Bottle. Nice attractive pour ... silently still, amber, quality head of sticky white foam. The aroma is certainly continental ... hinting at a Belgian golden avenue. It drinks with a more aggressively sweetened angle than most ... with big time, syrupy fruitiness rolling right over the top. Sticky in the mouth too. Delicious. (#5016, 5/10/2013)

Pours to a glowing effervescent amber body with a creamy airy white head. Slow carbonation adds to the sexiness. Aroma is tripel yeasts, hibiscus, and something lightly tart. Almost perfumey, but very light. Complex and balanced. Flavor is sweet but not cloying. Tripel yeasts, flowers, and subtle tartness. Very good blending of flavors. Medium body with nice levels of carbonation. Not overly so. This beer paired perfectly with a taleggio cheese.

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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is an uncharacteristic saddle blanket/barnyard/funky sour smell. Pours an oragangy amber with a rapidly dissipating white head and minimal lacing. The taste follows the nose. As a triple ??? But, otherwise, this was a very enjoyable beer ( if you like beers on the funky/sour side.) Initially, hints of tropical fruit followed by a funky sourness. Medium-light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall, I want to drink more of this beer.

Interesting and unusual tripel. Definitely not par for the course. Hits all the typical tripel notes, and had a beautiful deep copper, clear color. However, the tartness borders on sour. A wild tripel?Quite interesting. If you enjoy sours, this is the tripel for you. If you enjoy tripels, this is worth trying due to its unusualness.

Pours a dark golden color with a minimal head. Aroma is slight hint of yeast and tart apples. Taste has minimal yeast , the tartness is more prevalent with apples and jibiscus coming through. This is advertised as a trpel but those are usually sweeter. This came across more like a sour. Either way, I realky liked it.
