3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at the brewery and forgot to rate it, even tho I spent time reading google they had on purple mangosteens. I’d call it a "tropical triple", with a bit more smoothness than you’d normally see w/ the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at The Bruery. Smoother than the regular Trade Winds Tripel. Less pepper and basil tastes. Some citrus and mango from the Purple Mangosteen and a bit of coconut from the Malibu Rum. Really nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at Stone Bistro. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with white head. Fresh fruit, banana, grain, apricot, papaya, light coconut milk flavor, and notes of pepper. Interesting beer, very tropical for a tripel.
