2.5/5  rDev -33%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Bomber poured into a snifter. Instantly once I popped the cap it fountained and I lost a good bit of it...which isn't great since it wasn't shaken or anything.

A - Huge foamy head (duh given the gushing) which sticks around. Color is a dull reddish gold, which is ok. I'm taking off some points here due to spite from the gushing.

S - The reviewer who described it as rotting passionfruit/cherries is spot on. The fruits definitely come through but there's a sickly-sweet, rot odor that overpowers it. That's about it for odor - those things overpower anything else like the Belgian yeast.

T - The sweetness that the nose suggests is there first and foremost. It tastes like a very sweet tripel with sickly-sweet fruit rot. The Belgian yeast shows up just a bit at the end. Not complex and really not that good.

M - Really low carbonation (thanks gushing) which makes it more syrupy. It's going to be hard to come close to finishing this bomber.

Overall this one is certainly skippable. The idea of fruit with an underlying tripel is fine, but the execution just isn't there. This is only my second Voodoo brew (after Trapped Under Eisbock, which I really liked). I'll definitely try Big Black Voodoo Daddy but this beer is not a good representative of a fruit beer, tripel, or Belgian of any sort. Think more along the lines of Lindemann's fruit lambics than other stuff.
