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.

Draft at Blind Tiger after the Wintersun / Eluveitie show with Andrew and Brendan. Pours a light golden body with tons of carbonation sticking to the inside of my glass - very weird. Aroma is sweet candy, light estery yeast. Mouthfeel is thin, bubbly carbonation with notes of light booze, sweet cloying candy, fruit, light breadiness and yeast. Another reminder of my personal disatisfaction in Belgian tripels.

22oz bottle. Starting with this one and worked threw all 12 at the same time. A fun line up do do all at once. Pours out a hazy orangeish golden topped with a fluffy head. Nose is spice light herbal notes and some yeast. Taste is more of the spice herbal notes and some sweetness.

Draft at special brews. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with a creamy thin off white head. Classic green apples and sweet cream nose showing plenty of dust as well. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Dusty, toasty mid palate with apples and sweet cream, dark dusty finish. Solid tripel.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had a bottle together via facebook chat. This is lightly hazed golden with a foamy white head. Sticky lacing remains. The aroma is herbal but there is so much going on in it. Spices, malts, and more. Interesting and unique. The flavor almost matches the aroma for uniqueness and is at least as interesting. There are spices, malts, herbal notes, sticky fruit, candi sugar, Belgian yeast, subtle hops. This beer was so much fun to drink. It was all over the place with flavor and changed personality so often. Thanks Ron!

Draft pour at some obscure beer festival in Alaska this past January. Clear golden color with white head. Pils malt, candi sugar, earthy mate, dry spice aromas. Medium bodied. Earthy mate flavors with pils malt, candi sugar, spicy yeast--good Trip

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle:   Fiery golden, moderate to large frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Pale bready aroma, faint floral or herbal notes.   Very pale Tripel like flavors on the tongue.   I like this in that it isn’t overly bready and thick, but it seems pretty simple.   Clean as well.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Herbal finish, slightly bready, a touch sweet.   Enjoyable.

mansquito (6814) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Blind Tiger, NYC tap ($7.50): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is banana, clove, citrus, and tea. The tea did much more to this beer than I though it would, providing a somewhat unique taste. The taste is also quite sweet, as per usual with tripels. Hops are pretty minimal, but provide a little bit extra. Good, but not that great.

ben4321 (6677) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 8/16/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet, some fruit, spice, Belgian yeast, cookie, candied sugar and light tea
Appearance: It pours a hazed golden color with a small, slightly fizzy white head, and light lace
Flavor: The taste is moderately sweet, yeast, tea, a plus-spice component, and a light bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a fizzy carbonation, a clean feel, and a slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Here goes the 1st of the series, which is my 3rd (in reverse order from 3-1). Anyway, this one is pretty interesting. The nose is rather sweet, but the sweetness is balanced out by the spice and light bitterness in the flavor. Overall, it works decently well, but it isn’t a standout.

Sweet malt nose. Golden pour, medium head. Funk and light malt flavor. No alcohol detected, light body. Drinks like a single, quite tame.
