Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A real deep ruby red, hints at faint brown on the edges, but glows bright. Head is creamy picking up a bit of red body with some pink to it mostly off white. Three finger head and very nicely together and even. Gorgeous red color, and settles leaving a good creamy thin puck.

Slightly floral notes, but also some bile aromas that hit in the back. Mild tartness, and a faint cough drop sense of cherry as well on the nose. Interesting mix of cream and spicy fruit, but there's a little bit of off putting character just slightly.

Palate is a bit unexpected. Big creamy malt body, thick and almost vanilla. Large hot acid tartness, filling with floral and cherry like sour slightly in the mid palate. Malt gets thick with some vanilla sweetness. There is a bit of fighting clash between malt thick sweetness of classic tripel and some puckering fruit floral tartness. Bit of heavy carbonation with a spritzy and quinine feel and flavor too.

Overall a real interesting tripel.

On tap at Brix in Sunset Beach, CA.

A: Pours a beautiful amber/orange with a hint of pink. Small half finger creamy off white head that quickly settles to a film.

S: Sweet smell of malt coupled with a nice floral juiciness from the hibiscus.

T: A nice balance of maltiness and citrus tart. The hibiscus works really well. There is a slight funk and peppery note from the yeast.

M: Medium carbonation and body.

O: A nice tart beer. The hibiscus and citrus slight sourness balance well with the maltiness of the beer.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A golden color with a tall white head, maybe a light haze to it. Sweet bread and caramel notes with quite a bit of floral aroma from the hibiscus. Light citrus peel and apple tartness. Maybe a little pepper and spice. Flavor is enjoyable with a light tartness to it which balances the sweetness nicely. Bread and light caramel with pronounced hibiscus character, citrus peel, lemon zest, and mild spice.

Quite dark red amber in the tulip, in fact it's the darkest Tripel I've ever seen. Very brief flirtation of foam, so fragile it's gone before you can take a sip. A little fruity aroma. Flat mouthfeel with a serious lack of carbonation.

Taste is warm, fruity, and a little woody. Starts off sugary but finishes dry and bitter from the Belgian yeast. Slightly tangy, like Hawaiian Punch with tonic water. Hot with alcohol. Winey, grapey, and a little tannic.

Not much yeasty flavor, just the drying sensation. Not much pleasure in this stuff. On tap at Local Habit in San Diego.
