Found this randomly and bought a bottle. Aroma is fantastic but the rest leaves something to be desired. Not bad but not great. Qualifies as a tripel but theres so many better tripels out there I probably wouldn’t drink it again.
Bottle. Pours fizzy, with a muddy orange complexion. There’s a very sweet,
floral aroma that travels quite a ways. On the palate, this is a light-bodied sipper,
tingly and carbonated. There’s a cacophony of flavors hard to dissect ... starting with an almost rich, rigid, pulpy fruitiness, followed by some herbal/earthy tones.
Unique. (#6633, 6/5/2017) AtronSeige (1519) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 17, 2017
Aroma: Medium fruity, pear, apple.
Appearance: Hazy, amber body. Small, white head, fair retetenion.
Flavour: Strong, rich maltiness. Medium sassafras, bubble gum, pear, apple, bitterness. Medium-dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium warming. Medium body, Medium-high carbonation.
Overall: Complex, but hard to drink. Has a heavy feeling as you sip more of the beer, and that heaviness keeps building.
Bottle, poured, shared. Thanks AntonyWilson!

750ml bottle: Pours a cloudy brown with thin off white head. Aroma of biscuit, caramel and yeast. Full bodied, low bitterness and highly carbonated. Some notes of bubblegum and pear. Alcohol warmth. Overall I’ve had better triples, but not bad. ChewyBeer (371) - SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 12, 2017
Appearance: hazy golden, good head
Aroma: fruity, spices
Mouthfeel: medium full mouthfeel. Medium high carbonation
Taste: bubblegum, spices, peppery. Aclohol and bubblegum and aftertaste. Fruity
Overall: flavourful and tasty. Cybercat (5743) - Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Pours clear golden amber with a thick, frothy, and somewhat persistent eggshell head. Aroma features malt, honeysuckle, mango and banana tones. Flavor adds gentle pepper, lively hops, and some cloves to the mix. Mouthfeel has firm body and fair but not lasting fizz. Fruity, flowery, enjoyable.

Bottle from Julio’s. Rated from the bottom of the bottle. Poured into a tulip. Swirled in the bottom. A deep amber-orange color - darker than most tripels. Frothy white head that settles to a thick lace. Bright aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and spice. Flavor is very nice with a combination of yeasty fruit, citrus with a little spice balance. Clean finish. Franckg (1620) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
Smell of citrus. Taste is orange, pineapple, cloves, banana. Weird beer but ok islay (2677) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2014
25.4 oz. bottle, consumed on 9-21-14. Tart and quite pleasant aroma features scents of apple, honey, green grape, and apricot pastry. Pours a hazy, orange-ish gold with a moderate amount of beige head. Highly effervescent liquid. Looks good. The final of multiple pours is cloudy and opaque with good-looking, cream/beige head. Boozy, hot, creamy taste features flavors of prune and burnt caramel. Also apricot, lemon, and watermelon. Tastes like an unfortunate North American imitation of a Belgian ale, a la Unibroue. Unsophisticated. Coffee astringency in the finish. Simultaneously slightly unpleasant and bland. Medium body. Frothy in the palate. Initially lively but quickly fades on the tongue. It has that insubstantial quality of poor Belgian imitations. Overall, quite disappointing. crossovert (12667) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
750ml bottle. YEar aged at the brewery. This style I wouldn’t age, it is pretty flatline, muddled malt and spice notes, still violently carbed. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2014
its an enjoyable beer but one I should have shared with others. Its quite large and high %. Buy one and share.
