Clear amber; very small off-white head. Aroma of bread, white wine, Belgian yeast, and hibiscus. Taste is tart and sweet and really fruity with some floral and yeasty flavors. Body is medium and slightly syrupy. Ok. But also a little offensive. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2013

Appearance: Deep, dark golden body, fairly clear, with just under a half-inch of white foam.
Smell: Wow, okay. Smells like an odd champagne, where someone opened the body, drank a fair portion, then made some half-hearted attempt to ’cap’ the bottle, only to come back a week or so later to find this.
Taste: Heavenly Feijoa tastes about the same. Sure, there’s a toasted grain quality you know is from the barely, but the additions give it an overriding taste of ’off’ champagne without even a mere drop of sweetness to it, leaving it unsettlingly dry.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s different, that much is certain, though it’s not particularly palatable.
on tap Pours light copper with an attractive beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour fruity caramel malt flavor with a lingering hibiscus note. This is a pretty strange version of Belgian Trippel. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - APR 1, 2013
Drinking from a red solo cup due to current kitchen remodel. Aroma is typical of a triple. Banana esters. Flavour is more on the sour side, delicious! Dieu du ciel! Really liked it. topherh (1928) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours coppery with a thick white head. Aroma is grainy ripe fruit. Flavor is sweet, ripe fruity, and a little tart.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 On tap at Bailey’s Taproom, pours a hazy golden bronze with a small beige head. Aroma of light fruits, paint thinner and apples. Flavour of apples, paint thinner and alcohol. Very simplistic beer, full of apple and alcoholic liqueur notes. Decent, but too amateurish tasting, and quite boozy. Drinkable, but just barely.
22 oz. bottle, pours a dirty orange with a small white head. Aroma of hibiscus, tropical fruits, and some citrus hops. Flavour brings out guava, a little pineapple, some peach, some citrus hops, and some grapefruit. Interesting flavour profile, with loads of tropical fruits. Finishes on citrusy notes, particularly guava and grapefruit. Great stuff.
The bottle version is much better than the draught version I had. My rating will reflect a balance of my two tries. Nuffield (4169) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Heavy body, both visually and in the palate, with a building sweetness that isn’t my cup of tea, though it is better (surprisingly) as it loses some of the carbonation. The flavor has the floral note and orange marmelade but it also has a rounded English ale + cider sensibility. The alcohol is a bit noticeable but not too bad. I have mixed feelings about this, but I definitely think this is original and interesting. Bottle. beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Aroma is a tart cherry with a bit of booze. Taste is very atypical of a tripel. It’s slightly maltier while still being dry, lots of tart and a bit of cherry. TheBeerGod (6209) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with a tall, frothy white head. Aroma is flowery and sweet with fruit notes, caramel, candy notes, grains and malt. Taste is sharply sweet with more ripe fruit notes, flowers, candied fruit, caramel, herbal notes, sweet malt, grains and yeast. Soft booziness throughout. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more flowers, ripe fruits, candy, caramel notes, herbal notes, sweet malt, toasted grains, booze and cake.

On tap at Smoke & Barrel. Really excellent fruit character through the flavor and nose. Pineapple guava is quite striking. Light-medium body. Dry finish.
