Tap. Pours clear gold with medium, creamy white head; short retention and good lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, pears, cookie malt, spice, and grassy hops. Flavor is heavy malt, light hops, and medium esters; dry finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2012

Bottle: The aroma consists of apple, banana, yeast, and faint herbal notes. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that leaves behind some nice webbing. The flavor starts with apple, banana, and yeast. The finish has pepper, cinnamon, herbal notes, and a touch of alcohol. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.
22oz bomber at Maxs. Hazy orange-tan body. Thin, steady, glass lacing head. A pretty nice Tripel, on the sweet side. Not really on the level of a good Belgian, but decent enough. Sugary, the yerba mate doesn’t do much. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle.
The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of passion fruit and other fruit notes, along with some Belgian yeast and some biscuit malt. The flavor is completely different. I get the same tropical fruit and yeast from the aroma, but I also get a big load of herb notes - which I assume is from the Yerba Mate. There is also a light amount of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat, he in Illinois and me in Idaho. Poured a cloudy gold with a big white head and a lot of big lacing rings. Nose is spicy. Medium in body. Lively in mouthfeel. Flavor is very interesting, and keeps morphing with every sip, but always stay tasty. The yerba mate is a great addition. Really enjoyable and unique.

Amber gold in color, hazy with a thin head. Big Yeast and spice aroma. nice backing with malt and the infused Yerba this made for one tasty brew that will protect me for the future. jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 21, 2014
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spices and tea, some light spice from the yeast, pale and caramel malts, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle... Poured golden amber/orange with a thick, bubbly, eggy head. Nice lacing and retention. An extremely refreshing beer. The matte creating a soothing palate with a hint of smoke and phenols. Smooth, belgian yeast esters and spices. Earthy hop flavors and floridness. Citrus, grassy tones and a hint of malt sweetness to help the body. Jow (4169) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Tap at Stagshead. Pours pretty golden with white head. nose if fruity and bready. tastes of vanilla, tropical fruits, yeast, earth, white pepper, light butterscotch. not as big of flavor as really good triples though.
