A: poured into a snifter to a deep gold topped by a finger of dense white head that fades to a small pool and leaves minimal lacing
S: smells of alcohol, fruity esters, and some grapes. it smells a lot like a chardonnay that was fermented in steel tanks
T: taste is some clean pale malt, some fruity esters, a bit of floralness, alcohol, and more fruit. swallow is floral and fruity with a hint of mint
M: medium in the mouth with slightly prickly carbonation and a dry finish
O: Interesting beer for sure. very drinkable and the flavors mesh pretty well.

Golden orange in color. I ordered this not knowing it was a tripel and all my server knew was that it was some sort of Belgian beer...
My immediate thoughts were this is a saison. Tropical fruits in the nose with a funky Belgian yeast character. Hmm...
Tart up front with more tropical fruits. Specifically, pine apple and mango. Malty backbone with pils and Munich coming to mind. So what is this?
I thought for sure this is too funky and too sweet for a tripel yet it didn't fit with a typical saison...one could argue what is a typical saison? More thoughts go through my mind and I order another because, oh...did I fail to mention that the first went down very easy and it was delicious?
No way does this drink like a 9% beer. What has New Belgium done? This is an amazing beer. Expect a tart funky ride and you will not be disappointed.

Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one.
A - Pours a murky burnt orange with a sudsy white cap.
S - Fruity yeast, apricots, peaches, apple cider, white grapes, banana, strawberries, oranges, tart candy, honey, caramel malts with hints of butterscotch.
T - fruity tartness upfront, apricots, peaches, apple cider, white grapes, candy caramel malts underneath the fruity tartness. There a light spicy bitterness on the back end the helps out with the sweetness.
M - medium carbonation, velvety smooth feel, finishes semi crisp and dry.
Smells a little strange but I think the flavors work very well together. Lots of fruit flavors with perky tartness. I would drink this again.

Tripels are one of my favorite styles of beer. This beer is lacking in most of the areas that I look for in a Tripel. As a drink, it is not bad. As a Tripel it is fairly disappointing. Pours an attractive orange/amber color with a fairly large delicately bubbly white head. Head retention is about average and there is some filmy lacing on the glass.
Aroma is lacking, a little maltiness and some light fruit (apples and pears). Certainly not the peppery/yeast Tripels that I love.
Taste is very basic as well. A touch of alcohol in a mildly fruity/malty beer. I have no idea what Feijoa is supposed to taste like.
Mouthfeel is a bit better. Seems fairly rich.
Overall not a bad slow sipper, but nothing like some of the better Tripels I have had,
