Draft. Clear golden copper color, small but thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of dusty apricots and praches bathed in brandy. Taste is sweet, syrupy, boozy, fruity caramel. Closer to a barleywine than a tripel. mcberko (19222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
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.
Hazy strawberry blond, the aroma carries the florals of NB. Tripel but also this crazy fruitiness that must be feijoa. Sour fruity character, but mixed with the malts, florals and hop of NB tripel. Ferris (16737) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 Draft - Hay and yeast. Hazy pale gold with a thin head. Honey lemon hay and sweet yeast. A normal trippel on the sweet side. brokensail (16678) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Clear orange pour with a tall white head. Nose is surprisingly tart, from what I can only assume is the feijoa. Very strong floral component, a bit of grape, sweet sugar and malt, and hints of banana. The flavor is rather tart as well. Lemon zest, what I’m guessing is some feijoa, sugar, light alcohol, biscuit, and grape. A nice perfumey quality to this beer, too.

Bottle many thanks to Adam. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is sweet..hay, straw, spice, melon, pear, apple, white grape, icing sugar and toast. The taste is white grape, vinous, melon, pear, straw, hay pleasant tartness, alcohol warmth and a touch of spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty interesting stuff. A lot of tart white wine stuff going on. bhensonb (15858) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bomber from Whole Foods in Davis, CA. Pours clear orange/copper. Slight, transient white head. Aroma is rather fruity - hibiscus seems discernible. Med body. Flavor is tart fruit, with some Belgian yeast/spice aspects. Getting some banana ester as all the main stuff flows away. Really quite odd. It has a pineapple acidity. And some berry. Hibiscus seems to have gotten lost. Finishes drier than the aroma suggested, and still acidic/tart. djd07 (15704) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy gold with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt, cherry and apple skin. Medium mouth with sweet fruit and yeast, hides alcohol well, very good. Ratman197 (15474) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bomber poured a clear golden amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of bread, fruittiness, hibiscus and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, sour citrus, hibiscus and light earthiness with a smooth lingering citrus finish. Actually quite a mess! Tmoney99 (15043) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex tropical citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer.
