3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tulip on tap at Ol Bridge Pub in Reno, NV. Peppery estery, fruity aroma with hints of banana and spicy hops. Some lemon is also there. Dusty, horseblanket notes are also detected. Moderately hazy golden body with a fizzy white head that is strong. Fruity, estery, bananas, light apples to start. Becomes grainy in the middle. Spicy and peppery notes follow into a long dry finish. Quite refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from the Oak. Poured a golden orange body underneath a huge super sticky and pillowy bright white head. Aroma is dried fruit, lots of pineapple and green apple along with tropical fruits, yeast, grains, a hint of bubblegum and the slightest touch of piney hops. The body is dry and finsihes mostly dry with a touch of hops bitterenss along with a medium body and average to slightly strong carbonation. The flavor is very similar to the aroma with lots of dried out tropical fruits, grains and yeast. This one is very saison like except where a saison is spicey this one has dried tropical fruit sweetness. Excellent beer that really suprised me and that I would gladly purchase again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Yellow colour, small head. Aroma is very much a Belgian tripel, and flavour much the same. A quite balanced and nice tripel. Pleasant thing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In the bottle from Tampa Total Wine. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Pomegranate and pine aroma. A bit thin and boring in body. Has even hop flavors throughout- Amarillo or Simcoe? An OK beer, but not outstanding.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml from World of Beer/Tampa. Pours a very cloudy amber with a big white head. Aroma is hops, oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and maybe some peaches. Flavor is grapefruit, peaches, finishes in a fair amount of pepper and a little hop bitterness. Light/medium mouthfeel with a nice peppery warmth. The flavor was a bit of a letdown following the great aroma...

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had a 750 oz bottle. poured a murky, golden color with a medium white head. Aroma was a sweet, grapefruit, cherry, earthy smell. It smelled great. Taste was a bit light in flavor though. grapefruit, with citrus, pepper notes to it. Palate was real watery, light mouthfeel, alcohol warms you up a bit but also clamy. It was decent but i was disappointed in this brew.
