I saw everything the previous reviewer did and decided it was interesting and creative. The beer pretty much matches the description. It pours a honey color with a ridiculous champagne like head. It is not overly heavy, no hints of dark malt. It has strong hints of peppery spice and tropical fruits on top of an acidic funky character. Although I agree it is less tripel and more saison. Alcohol is masked and also has some yeast in the flavor.

BelgianBeerGal (3670) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2016
C&C bottle from the Sam’s mixed box that’s probably 6-9 months old. Nice, clear orange-copper color with a foamy, off-white head. Slight citrus hints in an otherwise spot-on tripel aroma. Fairly true to category taste with light booziness and a little spice. Well done.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy golden orange with an off white head and aroma of spices, yeast, and fruits. Taste is of sweet fruits with spices, Belgian yeast, and oak notes into the finish.

With Z , pours a rusty dark copper pour with a beige head. Nose is fruity, spicey and ’ figgy ’ sweet. Taste is fruity, sweet with a nice confluence of spices. Full of flavor, with oaky dark fruits as well ! Finishes on the same tasting notes with a moderately long finish. Surprisingly descent !! Quaff Score 8 / 10

radio_nowhere (1342) - Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2016
Caged corked bomber into snifter glass, clear golden amber color with plentiful light tan head. Aroma notes of malt sweetness, tropical fruitiness, light Belgian yeast funk and tad oak. Taste adds green apple, light Belgian yeast spices, some more oak, vanilla and caramel. Medium-heavy body, moderate-heavy carbonation, dry, lively with light oak/fruit finish. A pretty solid tripel, maybe a tad on the flavor light/boozy side.

Dark yellow color. Actually nice Belgian trippel. Normally I don't like this type of beer, but this one has enough spice and thickness that I like it. 10%. Nice hearty brew.

Bottle @ Fresh Thyme / Newport KY --- Aroma of malt and fruit. Hazy medium amber color, white frothy head, bands and blobs of lace. Taste is malt and spice with fruit that sweeps through a medium carbonated swallow on the way to light hops, followed by more spice. Big, heavy in the belly, works well, but not great.
