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

Not familiar with this style. Wouldn't be a favorite, but the balance is good. Definite tart cherry and passion fruit. I think this is a good selection of this style.

An unusual and tasty beer but most aspects of a Tripel are missing here. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my Chimay goblet. Small fizzy white head that fades fast, no lacing and a clear orange color. I took a good sniff, expecting light fruit, peppery spicing, Belgian yeast and, if I was lucky, an almost ripe cheese presence. Instead, I detected.....Jolly Ranchers!!!!! The mixture of fruit overwhelmed any sense of smell. Taste broke down the fruit into component parts. The cherry and raspberry were very prominent and seemed like real fruit rather than artificial flavoring, the passion fruit basically added sweetness. Like the label suggested, there were aspects of a blended lambic here. Mouthfeel was light, and fairly well carbonated. Sweetness was just right, not overdone or cloying. One Tripel aspect was featured here. The 9.2% abv was well hidden, a little warming but nothing strong or harsh. If you are expecting a classic Tripel, this is not it. Enjoy it for what it is, a tasty well crafted fruity beer.

Don't know how this is, but apparently I've been reviewing for13 years and drank over 2500 different beers but somehow this is the first one I've ever had from Voodoo.

4 packs of 12 ounce bottles were pretty reasonably priced, for a high ABV beer.

The pour is colorful but quite limp: a bright, pretty orange with nary a wisp of head and only the faintest hints of fizz.

The smells is dense and fruit. I get passion fruit and apricots but not much by way of the cherries and raspberries the label promises. I think it was poured at too cold a temperature, because as it warms up some malt fruit complexities come to the fore.

Tastes dense up front, fruity in the middle, yeasty on the back end with a surprisingly clean finish and none of the off nodes that can drag down lesser versions of the style. Overall, it's a *very* clean and crisp beer, which is darn hard to pull off with something so alcoholic.

It's basically a fruited tripel, and while it doesn't do anything world-shattering it's a darn good example of the style.

Good orange color,a t little thin feeling,light carbonation. Aroma is all fruit with a little yeast and malt. Somewhere in here was a tripel but the fruit took over too much. It almost didn't taste much like beer at all. Wouldn't repeat this

A-pours a hazy golden orange color with an off white head with decent retention
S-lots of passion fruit and cherries, sweet malt, honey
T-more passion fruit and maraschino cherries, more sweet honey, hops providing nice balance but not lending much to the flavor
M-medium bodied, slightly low carbonation
O-fruit additions dominate the aroma and flavor, making it difficult to taste the base beer. It's smooth an easy to drink. Not a bad brew, just a bit more fruit than I would want
