Very tropical aroma and flavor, pineapple, floral hibiscus, mango, hints of strawberry and watermelon. Somewhat sour. Very good beer. Nice mouthfeel, fizzy, not syrupy or watery. JStax (7123) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2014
22 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy copper with a thin ring of white foam around the edge of the glass. The aroma is definitely on the sweet side a little bit of tartness and herbal notes coming through as well. Taste is sweet, a little acidic, and bready. I do get a bit of alcohol burn toward the back end, but overall, this beer is pretty drinkable. DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bpmber shared at Craft Ale 20-Aug-2013. Poured hazy golden with white clingy head. Nose was black peppery hibiscus, funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus. Tasted complex, hoppy, citric, with notes if black pepper, hibiscus, and a complex, lively mouthfeel. This one was stellar. Dogbrick (13520) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours from a pretty bottle a slightly cloudy peach/orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of funky fruits and spices. Medium-bodied with flavors of tart bitter fruit, peppercorns and yeast. The finish is peppery with a tart fruity aftertaste. Decent overall, if nothing else I learned I don’t care for feijoa fruit.

Orangey clear brew with a tight head. Aroma is pretty alcoholic with fruit that I am guessing the exotic fruit in the brew. Taste is very fruity with a Belgian yeasty finish. This is an interesting brew. I like it.

This triple pours a rich ruddy copper with a very thin head. Nose is a bit like a pinot grigio. Sharp, acidic and with tart stone fruit. Taste is dry and crisp very like a brut champagne. Body is light and fluid. Finish is clean and just a little tart. Very nice. rollingwood (91) - Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Nice tart/sweet dichotomy working here. Pineapple tropical profile with hints of peach. What especially works for me is the slightly bitter finish where the hops come through. Nice work. . . radagast83 (8301) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Draft at Rustico - Alexandria. Aroma was tropical notes - apricots, peaches. Sweet malts. Flavor was nice tropical fruit characters, sweet malts, apricot. Sweet peaches. Alcohol a bit noticeable, but enjoyable. matthewjk (1125) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Celebration time! New Belgium in Ohio! New Year’s! Well, this first offering doesn’t leave me overwhelmed, but I know NB has a lot more to offer. This triple in nicely handled, but doesn’t hit all the right marks for me--somewhat falls flat. Caramel, sweet, mid hop, Patrickctenchi (6690) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Hazy gold, with a soft, white head.
Orange malt aroma.
Sweet orange pulp, floral taste.
Thickly sweet, tingly, a little alcohol presence.
