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.

Poured into a Gavroche tulip. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a fine one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of bready malt, overripe light stone fruit, hint of cherry and lighty floral. Flavor follows with lots of overripe stone fruit and citrus, light apple juice, bready malt, light coriander and clove; lightly floral. Finishes with a dry, almost astringent woody bitterness and citrus rind. Medium bodied with great active carbonation. An intresting domestic take on the tripel style, much maltier than traditional and more fruit oriented than Belgian spice forward. Initial flavor leans in the direction of a traditional tripel, but the quite dry, mildly tart and astringently bitter finish is a bit unbalanced. The floral notes from the hibiscus and light and well integrated. I liked this quite a bit except for the finish, which seemed to have too much unsupported bitterness and tartness. Well made, and different. My second ale from this brewery and intriguing enough to bring me back.

Deep auburn draft pour with off white head. Spicy nose. Spicy start, followed by banana clove. Slightly tart finish. Crisp mouthfeel; floral/hibiscus younger coating. Surprisingly lite and refreshing for a 9.4% beer.

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.
