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 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. Travlr (24758) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Draft at GABBF. The description of this beer scared me a little, so I figured I better drink up in case we’re all on a collision course. Hazy golden brown color, thin white head. Aroma of funky straw and citrus. Taste starts sweet then spiced with some orange peel. Interesting. troopie (2341) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Draught. Malty without being too sweet. Aroma has some yeastiness. Rathe full bodied. I could not taste the yerba mate.

Super clear and with a firm persistent head. Sweet pears and a familiar Belgian yeast dominate the nose. I’m 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. 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. nuplastikk (6275) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2014
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. Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016

Medium to heavy sweet flavour with more berries, ctackers, doughy wheat, light toffee, white grape gummies. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming finish with further sugary wheat bread, light dough, meringue, citrus, white sugar, more gummies. Novel. markducommun (1116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Clear deep golden, brown. No head. Very sweet honey. Lightly bitter. Strong malty body. Chewy, clean, light body. Good.
