Bottle. Clear pinkish orange pour with a big white head. Aroma is tangy, cirusy, slightly tart. Flavor is similar. Sour notes, a bit of Belgian yeast. Kind of one note and a little funky in a bad way. Not great. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Interesting and unusual tripel. Definitely not par for the course. Hits all the typical tripel notes, and had a beautiful deep copper, clear color. However, the tartness borders on sour. A wild tripel?Quite interesting. If you enjoy sours, this is the tripel for you. If you enjoy tripels, this is worth trying due to its unusualness.

First release, in case there is another.
Foremost, I rarely, if ever, comment on the packaging - the graphic design on this bottle is really appealing. Pretty with white clouds and baby blue accented urban outline with ethereal rays pulling me in. Pours apricot with etched surface whites and brilliant clarity. Smells of hibiscus, peppercorn, manure, some sweet banana and some hints of plastic. Flavor is tart, foreign, some bitter, some alcohol, some pear juice and lemons with a hint of herbal tea and a little lotion. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a off wet finish. This is an odd beer, and takes a while to warm up to, but is worth a spin, and maybe worth a revisit. olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2013

Looks a bit like apple juice. Very little to no head. Aroma of hibiscus, floral, and tart apples. Kind of a tart and tripel mux, although the tripel aspect is subdued. Kind of a weird concoction, but its not terrible. magsinva (1493) - Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg - pours clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma has red fruits, some malt and funk. Taste is tart with some sourness. Sour triple, interesting. deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 23, 2013
A - pours dark ruby orange with almost no head. Very little retention. S - tart and over ripe (near rotting) fruity esters. Very sugary sweet malts. Strange rotten fruit, burning electrical wires, airplane glue, socks??? Smell. A little off putting. M - lightly syrupy mf with odd burning sting at the end, with a lingering malty end. Tart up front, sweet middle, T - tart fruity notes up front. Berries, peaches, apricots. Malty tripel palate. To a sour malty strawberry banana esq esters. Ends with a rotted fruity end. O - off putting aromas and taste. 5
