COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
NIBIRU, named for the mysterious planet X supposedly on a collision course toward earth. Nibiru is a Belgian style tripel flavored with an infusion of yerba mate. Combining the yeasty esters of Belgian yeast and the compelling tea-like flavors of the South American herb mixture, with German Northern Brewer, Czech Saaz and American Amarillo hops round out the uniqueness of this first beer of the Apocalypse.

"Pretty nice beer though not a standout by Elysians hefty standards. the traditional aromas and flavors are all there...bubble gum and a bit of clove, with some light fruit and citrus, and it’s also got a grassy herbal bite, which is unique (but not something i;d want all the time. nice warming feel."

deyholla (11600) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle thanks to a trade! pours a hazy orangish amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a decent amount of light fruit with a bit of tea, a sweet grain backing and a nice amount of sweetness. Flavor is sweeter with a good amount of grain and only a hint of light fruit and grassy hops.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of my secret santa. Thanks bro! Pours a cloudy orange appearance with an off white head. Candy, orange zesty, floral, tangy, tangerine fruity aroma. Somewhat tart, banana, tangy orange fruity, fairly sweet flavor. Really didn’t enjoy this one.

22oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is on the mild side, but does show some herbal, green tea, light fruity and light yeasty notes. The flavor was herbal, dry, mildly fruity, earthy with pale malts. An interesting spin on a tripel.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2012
22oz bottle, shared. Mostly clear, orange-gold color. Little white head, bit of lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation. This is an interesting tripel... Some interesting earthy notes here, along with the light spice that you’d expect. Dry texture. Light bitter taste, some spice. Interesting augmentation

blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity, peachy, and yeasty, with lighter floral notes, honey, and spices. Decent.
