Almost two fingers of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is all barnyard. It’s not the nicest smell but it’s exactly a barnyard.
The taste is light with mild lemon bitterness, a little banana and not much else.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A fairly average ale. It’s not bad but there’s nothing to remember it by.

On-tap at the Crow Burger Kitchen, on to the beer:
There is a slight haze running through this beer. It's a godlen straw color, topped with a head which retains well and leaves spotty lace. Its nose is straight to the sugar, and accents of apricot compliment the sweetness. Fumes of alcohol escape into the aroma. Now to the taste...I'm getting a vague yeasty character. There's a golden fruit aspect to it, bringing apricot notes to the palate. Sugar coated fruit follows it. There's a slight metallic twang in the back. Somewhat boozy, especially when it comes to the mouthfeel, where it's like a "buzzy" booziness. The body is light medium, with low carbonation.
An acceptable tripel out of this San Francisco brewery. This is a style which can swing in either direction, so this result isn't a bad one.

Hazy apricot gold color in the tall tulip. Very fragrant nose of mango and peach. Decent foam.
Quite malty and fruity to start. It does have a blast of hops, but stops short of total bitterness. More of a Belgian IPA. Sharp like fruit brandy. Very carbonated on the tongue. A hint of IHOP apricot pancake syrup with a dash of bitters. Quite sippable, but it gets plenty acidic after a while. Quite hoppy in the aftertaste.
On tap at Local Habit in San Diego.

A stellar effort from this tiny San Francisco brewer (brewed in Belmont at Devils Canyon).
This could be considered a San Francisco interpretation of a Belgian trippel, a bit more hop presence, almost its own style
Best enjoyed in a Triple Voodoo tulip glass (scored during the Kaleidoscope event for SF Beer Week 2012*)
Nice amber-gold color, slightly cloudy, perfect head, nice drinkable smooth flavor; creamy, sweet, a touch of fruit, noticeable hops.
Will have it again soon
*Note: Triple Voodoo also concocted a delicious white IPA for the opening party of SFBW

Bomber poured into a tumbler, Triple Voodoo is a dark, dull gold with a small white collar leaving almost no lace.
Smell is sweet and very earthy, woody. I get a flutter of peaty scotch as it warms.
Taste has lots of fruity esters, but a notable noble hop presence, earthy, herbal, spicy. Not bad, blatantly new world take on the style, the punch of hops helps overcome the base tripel, which is average.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, full and fine carbonation.
Drinkability is pretty good, I like the BIPA take on a tripel, I could use a little more elegance to the base, cleaner malt.

I became a HUGE Belgian beer fan after my first sip of the Triple Voodoo Inception. I purchased the beer at first because of the great logo and then enjoyed the 22 oz bottle for it's smell, taste and color. I also enjoyed the higher alcohol level!!! I went back to Whole Food's to stock up and bought them out. I cannot recommend the Triple Voodoo Inception enough. Enjoy! Cheers!
