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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

3.5
JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bomber from State Line, Elkton, MD. Cloudy golden pour with a fluffy, silky looking head. Nose is very dry, which I vastly prefer to the estery mess of most American tripels. Playful mouthfeel, a pretty significant spiciness on the palate. And more of that to taste, as the brew is grassy and yeasty as fuck. Noble hop additions benefit the brew, and what might be a fairly anonymous base is enlivened by this among other additions.

3.4
Jow (3924) - New York, 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.
