22oz bomber courtesy of Anndiesel. Filtered orange-tan. Interesting mix of big boozy golden malt and mildly funky tropical fruit. Creamy, the filtration really lets the feijoa shine. Very unique, the tropical tones are very pleasant, and while the beer is big, it isn’t overwhelmign on the palate. A pretty cool offering from NG+DDC. blutt59 (6623) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2013
bottled, orange color with white head, aroma and flavor of organic orange juice that sat in the sun, I am not a big fan of these odd blends. Wish it was more tripel like Suttree (6575) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Clear copper, nice spongy white head. Fruity, spicy aroma. Flavor is an odd combination of mango and honeydew melon, which I assume is Feijoa? Also, a lot of white wine, like a Savignon Blanc or something like that. Seems much lighter than 9%. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Bomber bottle and served in my big ole Karmeliet glass; Pours a nice golden hue with a mostly lasting frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of tart and tropical fruits, marzipan, caramel and pils malts, touch of white pepper. The taste is quite enjoyable with the tartness of the feijoa countering the normally found sweetness of the genre. Add the slight peppery and alcohol finish to make a nicely complex brew. The mouth feel is moderately slick and oily, a tad dry on the finish. Overall this beer exceeded my expectations, Mikey Likey. dwyerpg (6550) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 2, 2013
To be honest, this is one of the worst-smelling beers I’ve ever had. And while this actually tastes a bit like feijoa, which is a fairly tasty Colombian fruit, it doesn’t work at all, for me or my Colombian wife. The sourness is there but that’s about all. First feijoa beer and I’m going to say that I’ll be alright if it’s my last. A huge disappointment.

Bottle: The aroma consists peaches, hibiscus, spice, and faint apple. It pours a transparent copper with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of peaches and light apple. The finish has tart peach/lemon with light hibiscus. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Cybercat (6417) - Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours a pretty clear amber with a thick, if not persistent, pale wheat head. Malty aroma has definite floral and fruity notes, not strong but tempting. Flavor is face-twisting tart, strong fruity note - that must be the feijoa (how the Hello Kitty do you pronounce that?) - and has a floral hint and a touch of honey. Firm, smooth texture leaves a slightly tingly and rather tart finish. This tripel drinks almost like a sour. Distinct and - will help your face exercise muscles you didn’t know it had. ;) joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at the Livermore Saloon. It pours orange with a white head. The aroma is huge tropical fruit juice…mango, lime, orange and pineapple. The flavor is pretty much the same with big pineapple, mango, orange sweetness. Full bodied and only hints of bready, spicy yeast character in the finish. Good beer if you like fruit juices. I enjoyed it. superspak (6348) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2013
22 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, bottled on 1/29/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pear, tart apple, strawberry, lemon zest, grape, pepper, clove, flower petals, light bubblegum, light honey, pale candi sugar, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast esters with the flower and fruit additions. Taste of tart apple, pear, strawberry, grape, lemon zest, pepper, clove, flower petals, honey, candi sugar, bubblegum, and earthy yeast spiciness. Fair amount of fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, strawberry, pepper, clove, floral, honey, candi sugar, bubblegum, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and complexity of malt and ester flavors; with moderate floral/fruity presence and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately slick and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice and unique Tripel style. Good balance and complexity of flavors; and quite smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering. tom10101 (6311) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle (22 oz). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Clear golden with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeasty and fruity with malt and pinot grigio reminiscence. Taste is slightly sweet and about the same as aroma. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Good fruity Tripel.
