3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer was very promising of different. The head poured relatively bright and spritzy at first, which settled into a haze lasting the remainder of the glass. The aroma was very yeast forward. The flavor was primarily sugar dominant, with an increased bitterness that cloyed into the finishing. In the finishing, the briar fruit was definetly more up front than cherry or passion fruit, which might explain the sour dry drop off at the end.
Overall a very interesting beer. I wish the conditioning yeast had better attenuation and clung to the bottom of the bottle, but very enjoyable. I would drink it again.
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Cherries on the nose, candied fruit, freshly mowed grass. Medium bodied, fruity with a nice cherry character. Soft and musky, fruit lingers, yeast. Soft and tasty.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2017 Bue à la pression. Couleur ambrée bien limpide, mousse décente mais pas trop durable. Nez au taquet sur la framboise. Visuellement et au nez c?est très prometteur, mais en bouche c?est un peu décevant. La framboise domine encore mais derrière il ne se passe pas grand chose. C?est assez aqueux, un peu acidulé, et ça manque un peu de corps, on se demande vraiment où sont passés les 9,2% car on ne les ressent absolument pas. Et non on ne sent absolument pas le fruit de la passion et la cerise. Dommage. Rotin (1491) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 17, 2017

Fruit drops, not beer. Well, not so bad.
Bottle sampled in a glass,
this beer was a light to medium gold in the glass with faint red/orange shades, a little haze,
there was a white and off-white cover, it left some spots and fingers of lacing on the glass,
there were aromas of cherry, raspberry, some bread malt, candy and fruit sweetness, very faint pear in the background,
a touch of earth and grass hops (the hops were pretty much hidden),
the flavors were similar to the aromas, cherry, raspberry with light bread malt, faint Belgian yeast notes,
it had a mild pepper spice at the finish,
the flavor was not as sweet as the nose,
the mouth feel was about medium, it was a little flat on the lips, this drink felt a bit watery and/or thin,
there was soft to less than average carbonation,
this beer smells like a fruit beer mixed with a Belgian beer,
the flavor was similar to the aromas, it was sort of simple, some fruit with malt, candy sweetness and a mild spice,
the mouth feel was a little thin / flat, I think more carbonation would help, a so-so drink. ginotarugo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2017
One of the few high ABV beers without an overwhelming alcohol taste. I liked it, a little fruity aroma and taste. And potent...

Kind of a strange aroma, maybe cherries. Taste is a dark fruit over a Belgian style with some sugar. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Color with reddish orange with a thin white head. Aroma and taste is fruity and of berries, belgian yeast, some funk, bready malts, fruity eithers, and some light booze as it warms. Has a medium body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a decently tasty, fruity trippel. weihenweizen (3825) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2016
On tap at Voodoo Homestead. Hazy orange with small off-white head. Aroma is cherry, medium body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is cherry and tropical fruit. solidfunk (8953) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Light florals and some cherry. A little better than the Gran Met. Pours hazy golden with decent head and lacing. Some coriander. Sweet finish with hint of tang in aftertaste. Tap at brewpub. hayduke (5204) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Draft pour at the brewery during RBSG 2016. Haz gold. White head. Nose of pineapple and mango. Medium body. Flavor is lots of fruit and the finish is bitter sweet. Tasty.
