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.

Bottle at Aarons. Thanks man! Pour is hazy orange with big white head and great lacing. Herbal, tangy, apple skin, doughy, green apples, old cider, pears, and tannic aroma. Taste is medicinal, slightly smoky, biscuit, straw, lightly spicy, tangy, green apples, and old malt with a spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really weird shit.

650 ml. bottle. Pours aa medium white head, with some lacing, over a clear gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light pear, hints of apple, bit of floral tones, cereal...taste is pear, apple, hints of floral honey, light sweetness, later hint of green pepper, leading to a slightly harsh bite from the hop yerba mate combination which lingers....mouth feel medium, carbonation low. This meets the style, with the exception that pepper aromas and flavors are too hidden. The use of the yerba mate as part of the late bittering in the taste palette is quite clever, but does not really get to the same place that the more typical recipes do. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

Maverick34 (3167) - New York, USA - APR 21, 2012
Bottled. Not sure if it was just the branding or what but it really was very tea-like, a pale tea color, tea aroma, tea taste. Not bad but interesting. Could have used a bit more pop.

Draught. Malty without being too sweet. Aroma has some yeastiness. Rathe full bodied. I could not taste the yerba mate.

robforbes (2228) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2013
pours a fizzy, semi-cloudy orange with a very large white foamy head, and good lacing. smell is of bread yeast, floral, and a touch of citrus. taste is chalky, yeast, some citrus, and a funky taste that i assume is the yerba mate. ends dry yet smooth.

Alphadelic (2223) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Super clear and with a firm persistent head. Sweet pears and a familiar Belgian yeast dominate the nose. Im not familiar with Yerba Mate but I guess it must contribute a lightly earthy note and heaps and heaps of apple and pear flavor. Some real bitterness and a strange light smokiness mingle with a fruity sweetness.

Bottle @ 18th RG. Yellow gold with white head and light lacing. Smells like grassy tart bubble gum. Very clean light tart flavor. Slight wateriness.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pours light amber with a sheet of white. Smells of classic American style triple Ashlee and just a hint of yerba. Taste follows asking the same with sweet notes and a little bit of coriander.mouth feel its a little hi with smooth carb.decent, but nothing special Serving type: on-tap 02-04-2012

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Tap at 16 Tons. Yellow/amber pour with a big, bubbly white head. Herbal and floral with Belgian yeast and light citrus, this one really did not meld together well in my opinion.
