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, tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2014
It smells lite and pleasant, on the sweeter side.... The flavor is overly sweet covering any flavor that I would enjoy... Minimal to no malt character... Just juicy sweetness. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Cloudy pearlescent orange. Smells of soap slight smoke and caramelized malt. So sweet and fragrant like a wine. The taste is so overwhelming only at the end do the flavors start to sort themselves out. vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Clear gold. Kind of sour dank aroma. Sour fruity taste. Long sour finish. Apple and unripe plum. i like sour ales so this isn't so bad.

Overall not a bad Tripel but not one of my favorites. A bit of a fruity aroma but nothing special. The flavors were interesting with that fruity tartness that apparently is from the feijoa fruit. Mouthfeel was too thin. A unique beer but not a great beer.

Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of fruit and floral notes. Tart flavor at first that mellows to fruity/floral flavors and a nice malt character. Very complex and refreshing. No sign of that 9% abv either. Solid brew. scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 7, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a golden-brown with a one inch head that lasts. Taste is of fruit, hops, malt, yeast and some spice. Similar aroma. Has a decent body. The finish is pungent and sour. Gets easier to drink as you go, but the alcohol kills the ability to drink it. It would be a better brew if it was lower in ABV. Far too strange and unbalanced. Unique and unheard of flavors are good when balanced or made recognizable, but in this case the different flavors are used as a ’What was that?’ punchline. Though the brew brings flavor, it is less than harmonious. Honestly, one of three beers that I have decided not to finish. bigtaster (1028) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Honey color with white head, nose of spices and light fruit, cherries, banana. Light body with good amount of carbonation. Tangy from the start, dry, vinous characteristics, slight fruity sweetness. Balanced and delicious. PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 13, 2013
light gold with healthy white head. Flavor/aroma is fruity (almost tart fruit) with a light berry hop flavor and touch of bitterness. Mildly spicy yeast. Delicious and drinkable. Got me a little tipsy at lunch here. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Oh, so much better than its rating. Pours clear orange with a short head. Decent retention and solid lace. Interesting aroma showing plenty of hibiscus. Bright floral along with fruit, spice and nutty malt. Light sweet, medium tart flavor. Medium viscosity, slick texture, good carbonation and a long, tart, dry finish. The amount of tartness was a pleasant surprise. Big fan of DDC and this beer.
