I have a 4 pack sitting in my fridge outside and I think I will save this for a special time, I've already had it but as soon as I read that it was retired I went out and bout the last of it.

Not my cup of tea (beer). Smells and tastes like sulfur to my untrained palate.
Sorry. The app made me write this.

Not a fresh bottle, as this was bottled back in march of 2014....oh well.

Pours hazed tangerine, with a nice looking off white tiny bubble head, film and raised collar, leaves some slippery fine sheeting.

Fruity nose with melon and lime.

Soft and near creamy on the tongue, this is highly fruit infused brew with more melon, lime and other tropical sensations. Tasty and yes fresh tasting. Less carbonated then the typical Tripel.

Yeast fueled nutty final pour. Yum yum yum

Great with some nuts, dried fruits, bread and cheeses

Highly enjoyable...got get some

Have had quite a few of these. Mostly because got a good deal on some older ones but at 9% not worried about having some age on it. A lot of white sediment in this light golden brew with a thin finger of quickly dissipating white foam. Yeasty sweet in the nose with just a hint of distinct citra. Taste has plenty of alcohol go with a nice malt taste and some yeasty orange like sweetness with a kiss of citra. Unfortunately the booziness and sticky aftertaste ruins this one for me. Has some good qualities but it's not much else than a quick buzz.

S:pilsner malt, sweet orange, citrus
M: medium light body, slight burning on the tongue
T: grapefruit rind, pilsner malt, green hay, white pepper, soft sweetness towards the finish, and some vegetal flavor I'm picking up
O: interesting brew and some funky complex here.

Pours a cloudy, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, slight yeast, grass, slight alcohol, hint of wheat, and hint of floral notes. Fits the style of a Tripel. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, sweet malt, slight yeast, slight grass, hint of floral, hint of hops, and a hint of spice. Overall, good aroma, body, blend, and complexity.
