Rating is geared mostly due to lack of carbonation. Not sure if my bottle was bad or what, however it seemed flat and little to no carbonation which affected flavors.

12oz undated bottle poured into a teku glass at fridge temp 9.5% ABV per label. Tripel brewed with cherries, raspberries and passion fruit. The beer pours mostly bright red tinted amber with off white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and island of tiny bubbles. Nearly no lacing. The aroma is mild with vague fruit and some Belgian yeast notes. The taste is sweet, clovey with plenty of malt and candi sugar. Minimal bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with above average carbonation and a mostly dry finish. Overall, good. Tripels aren't my favorite style, but this is well done and the fruit is very subtle.

Not crazy about this one but La Fin du Monde is one of my all time favorites and I'm comparing it to that unfairly...

Fruit is extremely subtle here...yeast profile is funky... booze is well hidden...

Glad I got to try it but one is enough...

Pours a light copper color. The notes of Belgian yeast are discernible in the nose. The primary flavor note is that of rotting fruit. The finish is dry. There is really no trace of alcohol for such a high ABV offering.

Pours a deep reddish gold with a tight compact head. The smell has wheat and the fruit aromas. The taste is slightly sweet with a good blend of fruit. Though it is 9.2% abv, you do not get any alcohol flavor; just a slight warming. It is light bodied and refreshing. Overall, a good tripel!

It's Day 1 of the 2019 Beer Advent Calendar.
Listed here as a Belgian Trippel, this is not what anyone would first think of when given that designation. No; this is a Lambic. Framboise, mainly, since the raspberries take over most of the component parts of the scoring.
Mine was well-settled before pouring, and I didn't add the lees at the bottom of the bottle of the unfiltered nectar, so it looks clear and amber-- slightly reddish even-- in the glass, with next to no head.
It smells of fruit, no surprises there. Not so much of the yeast that I would associate with a lambic, on the other hand.
It was pleasant on the tongue, with a quick yeasty hit that was overwhelmed by raspberry but finishing sweet.

This will never be my favorite style of beer, but it was at least drinkable; unlike the majority of fruit beers in my opinion.

Not my favorite. For a fruit-oriented Belgian beer it was executed quite well, but it was too sweet for my liking. I like a bit more head as well - this one dissipates very quickly. On the plus side, the flavor profile was interesting.

L: Lots of tiny bubbles on the pour. The lacing indicates unfiltered, it's half hazy while cold, crystal clear after warming.

S: Sweet dark fruit leapt right out at me. What could this possibly be made of? Belgian candy sugar?

T: Spicy roasted malts. Central palate is prune, plum, raisin. Bitter on the back palate. Comes together, well balanced.

F: Medium bodied and finishes clean. Too sweet for me, trippels aren't my thing.

O: Well executed from a technical standpoint.

Really like this beer. Voodoo brews some really unique beers and this is probably my favorite. Slight fruity taste and lacks a boozy punch despite it's 9.5% ABV. It's a great combination of smooth and flavorful that I really like.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a slightly hazy pale golden color with a thin foamy white head that has short retention

S- fruity on the nose with passionfruit and raspberry leading the way. Undertones of peppery yeast that adds aromas of banana, clove & basement must. Light bready malt to round it out

T- spicy and peppery yeast up front adds notes of clove, followed by some fruity elements of banana, passionfruit & red berries. The finish gives more peppery yeast, strong phenolic note on the linger

M- medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that fades out as it nears the finish

O- an interesting take on the style, making it quite drinkable
