22 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a white head. Apple-y berry aroma with a pungent spice sensation I can’t figure out. Fruity berry and apple flavor, bubble gum and clove. Fruit flavors evolve into some orange peel and berry, a little perfumey, with a lingering tartness. Aroma was a little off-putting, but it ends up okay.

Tulip at Global. This had so much going on in it. Funky notes, fruits that were all over the place, candi sugar, big malts, flavorful yeast, and a bit of oddness. I should give pineapple a special mention. Really interesting and the alcohol was not tasted. lamas (1655) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 23, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Packaged on: 01/29/13. Best enjoyed by March 2014. A clear rust/amber pour with a thin beige head. The tangy aroma is dominated by candi sugar, plums, apples, green grapes, and lemonade. Kinda floral. Goes down relatively medium-bodied and smooth, yet syrupy. Fairly sweet upfront taste-wise with some candi sugar and plums. Quite tart afterwards with lots of green apples and sour lemons at the end. Some vinous notes. Acidic. A touch of warming alcohol throughout. Tasty. Ernest (7817) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of bubble gum, ammonia, detergent, cotton candy, pepper.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
A horrible creation. Artificial and chemical nose is truly disgusting. Sour and dirty flavor experience almost prompts expectoration. Shows pretty much zero effort. Sheesh, how low can NB go? akoeninger (774) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Great amber color. Vinous, yeasty, zesty fruit aroma. Some tart to it. Taste is like a triple with an almost fruit beer tartness to it. Very good, interesting fruit flavor. Crisp feel. Good brew.

Very much a ruit beer more than a tripel. It is a GORGEOUS color. Flavor is tart and very vinous, the tripel flavor comes form a nice malt bill and belgian yeast. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle. Pour is very dark gold nearly amber, white head. Poor retention/some lace. Aroma of apricot, citrus, honey, light hibiscus, light ester. Taste is sweet, light tart, pear, honey, hibiscus, a bit salty. Palate is soft, slick, sweet finish. Odd. durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2013
This is so close to being something maybe good, but I am not sure what it is, and it is in the middle ground between vomit and a tripel. Oh Feijoa fruit, you are not heavenly; you are guava-bile like, and you overpower the citric and kumquat notes of this deep orange brew. A failure, and I’m not sure it’s a noble one. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle. Amber beer with a dark cream head. Earthy and fruity aroma with yeast. Tart fruit flavor with hibiscus and yeast. Medium bodied. Tart fruit lingers with yeast and light malt. thomas15 (694) - Alabama, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Light aroma of grain and dry apple. Other sort of strangeness to the fruit quality. Copper colored and clear with light head and good lacing. Taste is tart fruit with hibiscus tea leading to honey flavors. Weird but interesting and well made tripel. Definitely cranberry aspects to flavor.
