It's a strange looking beer, but only because it's so cloudy. Think orange juice that's just been engulfed by a dark rainy cloud. Pour is a very dingy , old faded orange. Extremely rich looking. There's a white head with average retention up top. Decent thin lace. Looks like a very orangey wit.

I don't know what feijoa is, but this beer smells good. Very pineappley nose. Lots of citrus juices. Floral with a smack of alcohol. Faint white pepper.

Grapefruit juice. Looks like it and tastes like it. Must be orange rind because it's far more bitter than sweet. You can taste the hibiscus, reminds me of dandelion. Orange makes a cameo in the lingering finish.

More bitter than sweet. There are small bursts of sweet, but it's fairly bitter and the carbonation makes the bitter feel even stronger. Alcohol brings some heat to the equation. Fairly heavy, even for a tripel. Warming, dry finish.

It's a strange beer, which sometimes collaborations are. I can't say good or bad, but I can say unique. Some will love this and others will hate it. I'm leaning towards good.
