This beer poured out as a typical Belgian golden ale or Saison looking brew. Yellow in color with a white head that lasted for a long time. The smell of the beer has a yeasty and strong fruity aroma. The taste was fruity upfront but fades into a subtle spicy flavor. Mouthfeel was carbonated and light bodied. Very refreshing and drinkable beer overall.

With feelings of Valentine's Day lurking just beyond the flavor spread of the beer, Love Child uses the base tripel recipe of Gran Met as the foundation from which to spring the overtly fruit character of raspberry, cherry, and passion fruit.

Much like the Gran Met, the tripel portrays a shy carbonation that yields a eerily still appearance with little foam stance garnered and equally terse on lace and retention. Hazy with yeast and perhaps a dusting of wheat, the beer casts an even glow when back lit. Where its appearance differs from the original is the hue of blood oranges from fruit-stained coloration.

The malty sweet aromas of the tripel presents itself well, but it's the fruit overtones that steal the show. Fruity for sure but the culmination of cherries, berries, and obscure tropicals arrive in a certain fruity tone that evades specificity and weaves well into the estery nature of the Belgian yeast influence. But the counterpart spice from yeast is overwhelmed as the scent remains decidedly fruity.

Flavors mimic those attributes from aromas closely. Malt sweetness hits the front of the mouth with a candied fruit coating that reminds me of cinnamon apples. This notion is exacerbated by the complementary taste of berries, cherries, and citrusy tropical passion fruit that, in its fussion, gives impressions of Hawaiian Punch fruit juice. The acidic flavors of fruit masks the taste of grain and sugar well and saves the day for its taste.

The rich malt and saccharine "tacky" textures are somewhat forgiven as the palate registers the texture of fruit sweetness and acidity that carries the beer from early impressions through mid palate. But the beer never develops beyond that as the sticky sweetness of the malt, sugar, and fruit lay stagnant on the palate and offer only alcohol heat to close the beer. And indefinate linger of fruit sugars clings to the teeth and beg for dryness that never comes.

But there's the element of fruit that seduces my palate in all the right ways. I somehow forgive the lackluster textures because of the bright fruit flavor that masks the anti-Belgian character of the original tripel and allows me to discuss the beer from a different angle.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a pink-infused peach color, rather hazy, with only a modest head raised after an aggressive pour; some clumps of lace gather around the sides of the chalice

Smell: Very fruity, but somewhat artificial, almost like a fruit powder; can clearly discern the cherries and raspberries and, to a lesser extent, the passionfruit

Taste: A fruit salad from the outset, with a sweet-tart blend that the passion fruit provides to offset the cherries and raspberries; after the swallow, the fruit blend mellows out; the alcohol is well-hidden as are the Belgian elements

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: I was expecting something more like Three Philosophers and this was more of a fruit beer; lacks depth of flavor and complexity, but a refreshing summer day beer, no doubt

Thanks, kirok1999, for the opportunity

Thanks to Lunch for gifting me this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.

A: Pours a cloudy light copper color with a few bubbles on top after a hard pour. There's a thin white collar with small bubbles around the edges, but that's about all it gets.

S: The nose brings some faint stone fruits along with a bit of white pepper. Behind that is a touch of caramel and a bready malt base.

T: The flavor is wholly different from the nose, as there's an abundance of fruit, at least compared to the nose, where there was only a faint whiff of fruitness. Here comes a bit of cherry and raspberry along with a faint black-plum presence in the background. A touch medicinal on the back end, though that aspect is fairly mellow.

M: Medium body with low-to-moderate carbonation and a bit of alcohol. Light fruity sweetness lingers in the background, heading to a finish that is surprisingly crisp. A bit of alcohol in the background, but nothing that wouldn't be expected from a brew of this strength.

O: Pretty good. I enjoyed this quite a bit more than I expected to. The fruity elements to the flavor are quite nice, and the feel really rounds things out. Thanks again, Paul.

The label is a little disturbing I gotta say.Pours into a large tulip glass a deeply ripe tangerine color with a sticky light pinkish hued white head that left good lacing.Aromas are on the lighter side with stone fruit and mild lactic notes,some sweet alcohol plays a role as it warms more.The feel is almost creamy and it helps the beer glide down easy.Dry on the palate for the most part save some sweet sugary alcohol in the finish,stone fruit and lightly tart fresh picked raspberries stand out most with just a tinge of iron.Not bad,it's not funky or barnyard-like and the fruit is subtle but it adds nicely to the beer,it doesn't seem quite as big as it is.

Reviewed from notes. Twenty-two ounce bottle shared by one of the crew - thanks.

A: Pours a hazed orange with a 1/4" white head which fades quickly to the rim and leaves a few spots of lace.

N: Fruity, slight funk and tartness, coriander spice and orange zest.

T: Fruity dark cherries, raspberries, hard to pick out the passion fruit for me. Mildly sweet and yeasty.

M: Semi-moderate body and semi-medium carbonation. ABV carries some heat on the finish.

O: A fruity and slightly funky tripel, well for whatever it is, I enjoyed it.

"Cause I'm a voodoo child,
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child baby."

--Jimi Hendrix

Equal parts tangerine and banana, with the slightest coral blush imaginable... that may be nothing more than imagination. A blizzard of fine yeasties gives the beer a cluttered look that adds character. Given the fruit that was used, it's odd that the dull white cap isn't faintly pink. Foam and lace are decent at best.

Voodoo Love Child smells like a tripel brewed with fruit. Imagine that. Only trouble is, the combination isn't a standout because too much of the tripel character is obliterated by the fruit juiciness. Cherries are most prominent. Raspberries and passionfruit... not so much.

This is one of those brewing ideas that sounds better in the planning stage than it ends up being in the execution stage. Tripel is one of my favorite styles, and some fruit beers can be very good as well. The combination of the two, though, at least in this case, is less than outstanding.

The interesting thing is that VLC tastes like both styles. The brewers managed to dial in the fruit flavor to a level that is neither too much nor too little. That couldn't have been easy. On the palate, raspberries and orange peel are giving cherries a run for their money.

The pale malt and candi sugar sweetness (moderate) is nicely balanced by a Hallertau hop bitterness (mild-moderate). Hallertau hop flavor is almost absent, as is alcohol. The last is pretty remarkable given the double-digit ABV. Although a hint of coriander appears with warming, calling this big brew spicy wouldn't be accurate.

The mouthfeel is medium in heft and loses almost nothing on the finish. Must be the candi sugar. The carbonation is more Belgian-style tripel than Belgian tripel, which is a damn shame.

Sorry Voodoo, I ain't feeling the love. Voodoo Love Child tastes exactly how a fruit-added tripel should taste, but I'm not sure that particular combination is such an outstanding idea. As far as this purist is concerned, a well-brewed tripel needs no help from any additional ingredients. Least of all fruit.

Holy hell, what is this I have gotten myself into. I thought this was a pale ale at first, boy did I just get my ass kicked! Served chilled and poured into a pint glass at first, this one was consumed on 12/16/2008.

The pour was damn nice. A rich light amber color was immediatly visible and came through very nicely. A rich looking white head then came up over the top and settled down into a very nice layer of white that kept up the crown throughout the session.

The aroma was just beautiful. Rich notes of fruit just dominating everything. Intense sweet notes of cherries and passion fruits were everywhere, I did not see this coming at all. Probably the best fruit smell since my last big New Glarus beer. The flavor was more of the same, super light body with an enormous fruit explosion on the taste buds. Super sweet, and at the same time light tart flavors and a hint of soothing grain underneath it all. No hint of alcohol caused this one to literally go down like candy, which is gonna cause an issue as the night wears on I am sure.

Overall I am blown away, this is one of the best beers I have had in a very long time. I am gonna be on the look out for this one again, this was just really really good.

A tad too sweet despite some tartness.
Nice mix of fruity flavors with no one fruit dominating: A berry-cherry mix.
Medium-light body with fairly high carbonation.

Got in a BIF from JNForsyth. 22 ounce bottle into chalice; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart raspberry, cherry, passion fruit, peach, pear, apple, pepper, clove, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, fruits, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lightly tart raspberry, cherry, passion fruit, peach, pear, apple, pepper, clove, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness and light tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of raspberry, cherry, passion fruit, peach, pear, apple, pepper, clove, honey, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, fruits, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast/fruit balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome fruited tripel style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, fruits, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into my Lost Abbey stemware. Poured deep amber in color with a reddish cherry like tint to it. It started with a thin, bright white head barely covering the top of the beer. The head faded and clung to the sides of the glass where it left some moderate lacing.

The fruit really comes through in the aroma, particularly the cherries and raspberries. The Belgian yeasty spice is also pretty evident in the nose. I really liked the way the fruit mixed well with the Belgian flavors in the aroma and didn't overpower the beer at all.

The taste shows even more of the delicious fruit flavors then the nose suggested. Raspberries seem to be the most present out of the ones listed. The Belgian triple flavors come through more in the finish adding a nice compliment to the fruit. It doesn't really have an alcohol bite but you can tell it is fairly high in abv.

Mouthfeel medium bodied and carbonation is on the higher side and slightly sharp on the palate. Drinkability was good, I really like the flavors the fruit gave it. The fruit really gave it a nice fresh and real fruit flavor while also not overpowering the beer flavors. Very nice fruit flavored beer overall.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my Duvel tulip.

a - Pours a reddish-brown amber color with 2 inches of white head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of cherries, apple cider and apple juice, dark fruits, and sweet fruity malts. Also a hint of spice.

t - Tastes of cherry and apple juice mainly. Other dark fruits come out as well, including raspberries. Pretty sweet.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

d - A really nice labic. If you like apples and cherries,you'll love this. Would try again.

Appears a clouded unfiltered amber red forms a large bright white head which dwindles slowly forming fine even bands of lacing as it fades. Aromatics full of tart fruit combinations including syrupy passion fruits like pineapple and mango twang, tart apple cider with honey covered cherries and berries. A menagerie of fruit and tripel, this aging of the fruit did the Gran Met well, because it was still on fire way too young at this stage in the game. Aging on fruit really took that edge off and everything melded together quite well. I also note a spicy peppery yeast note that was lacking along with herbal qualities that were nonexistent in my sampling of the Gran Met. Flavors flowed well it really still had plenty of alcohol flavor but sweet ripened fruit and somewhat syrupy malts collide to bring enjoyment in the glass. Tartness without the funky edge a very clean natured tart character flows with ripened fruits again I come back to cherry and berry combination without getting too specific, and a flow of tropical passion fruit flows as well. Spicy yeast provides a touch of needed dryness low hop content brings out some mild herbal qualities to add to the balance. Again another big brew that will only improve with age. Mouthfeel is full bodied with really sticky residual sugars coating the palate with every sip a 22oz portion can get cloying but hell just about any beer at this abv will do that to ya. Carbonation flowed well even on the palate with enough there to carry the syrup that has formed, and I can guarantee some alcohol burn at this point. Drinkability is good for the complexity of different fruits thrown in here along with a notably spicy yeast profile and pure alcohol presence the flavors do work, but once again split this with some friends much more enjoyable spread out rather than by the bottle.

Pours a dull brown with a sizeable creme head that falls and leaves a lot of lace on the way down. Nose is mostly raspberries, and it's a gerat essence of it as well. I just think nice, in perfect condition raspberries. Flavor is yeasty, but there is also a noticeable fruit edge. Not a lot of complexity really. And to me, it comes off more as a fruit beer than a tripel. Fairly full carbonation and the liquid is about what you'd expect with so much fruit being used. Overall a nice brew. Honestly, I do like the fruity stuff, so let's let that be known. But it does carry some balance and character. Also, you can't tell this is 10.5% at all.

Shared at my tasting on May 29, 2010. Thanks Paul! Review from notes.

The label art is hilarious and quite unusual. Nice. This beer appears a hazy yellow color with a small head and just a touch of lacing on the glass. The sweet fruits are definitely noticeable in the aroma and throughout the taste, though there is a subtle tartness that balances the sweetness out to some degree. This beer has an interesting taste and finish. I'm just not sure what I think about it. The feel is smooth, and pretty easy considering that it weighs in at 10.5% abv. The finish and aftertaste are also quite unorthodox, though not necessarily in a negative way. It's an intriguing and interesting beer, for sure. I would definitely try this again.

22oz brown bomber with no bottled on date. Pours a clear light orange color with a few faint particles stuck in suspension. Minimal amount of fuzzy white head appears and receeds to nothing very fast leaving minimal spotty lacing upon the glass. Nose has a classic belgian feel with notes of clove and citrusy fruits. Taste is slightly sweet with clove and notes of citrus vaguely reminescent of the ingrediants listed on the bottle. Label reads this is aged on cherries, raspberries and passon fruit. Any major indication of these stated fruits are masked behind the yeast characteristics. This beer has a drying finish that I immediately relate to overly steeped tea. There is a dry lingering taste of alcohol blended with a bit of bitter hops (slightly grassy) and stale fruit mixed with a bit of biscuity grain. Light feel and a high amount of carbonation. The 10.5% alcohol is present throughout in both warmth and taste.

Pours orange with a bit of sediment floating around. A thin head disappears. No lacing sticks.

The smell is of fruits - cherries/raspberries - an an artificial fruit way, something "Belgian-esque" about it, I suppose - in more of an "attempt to be" way. It is very bready, yeasty, sour-ish. Funky, but not in the right direction.

The taste is fruity - again...in an artificial way. Tastes like fruit punch - gone bad. Musty fruit punch. Sour and yeasty.

Oh - I made it to the "mouthfeel". At this point it's a bit tough because I am so unimpressed. That aside - the feel is hardly "Belgian", Tripel or anything good. It has carbonation. Not enough to wash away the lingering taste. It has something of a body, but so does musty fruit punch that this so reminds me of.

The best I can say about this one is that it hides the abv reasonably well. This is sourish and overly fruity. Not my thing, and not at all, even broadly, fits in with the style. Style aside - not pleasant. Label is unattractive, as well. Shouldn't judge by the label, but the taste matches, pretty much. I don't want to see a middle-aged guy skating in his speedo on the label - and I don't want to drink a beer that tastes like a fruit punch that the guy put his feet into.

Bottle from Food and Friends
Pours a hazy medium gold color with a decent sized off white head that persists for a while. While there was no huge pop when I opened it, it did try to self pour out of the bottle. The aroma is lightly non descript fruit with a solid caramel malty back with lots of clove and other spices. I had to edit this a little, because as this warms the raspberries and cherries really come out in the nose. The flavor is caramel prune and yeasty spice for the most part. The fruit flavor of raspberry and cherry are subtle but the tartness shines through pretty well. A hint of alcohol and a prominent orange marmalade thing round out the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Decent beer, but overall I feel that flavors are competing here rather than complimenting each other.

Thanks to rpohagan for throwing one of these into a trade. Served in my Darkness goblet.

A - Two fingers of egg-white quick dissipating foam that leaves some solid lacing. Murky auburn red-orange color.

S - Woah! Spicy Belgian yeast and musty funk. Some raspberry flavors, but really sour. There's also some lemon zest, cherry, and wheat flavors. This is really funky though - almost off-putting.

T - Much sweeter - lots of cherry and raspberry, with some maltiness. The yeast, sour, and funk notes recede to the background. Significantly more tasty that it smells.

M - Lots of carbonation tingle to this one, with a very thin body. Leaves a candy-coated feeling in the mouth. Kind of gritty as well.

D - I think one bomber of this was plenty - the smell was just overwhelming, even though the taste was pretty solid. Carbonation was too high, and the ABV is high as well (even though you can't really taste it).

This was a really unusual beer - not sure if it wants to be a tripel, kriek, lambic, or what. And the smell - so much yeast, like bust out the Monistat level yeast! Interesting experiment, but nowhere near as successful as Big Black Voodoo Daddy.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A quite dark almost copper red, but hints at a brown and dark red like color. Off white and faint tain and barely one finger head, with some good staying power though from some solid slow rising noticeable tan carbonation.

Smells like a typical fruit beer. Small sensing fruit, a hint of weak sourness. Not much sweetness but also no hitting large booze either. Slightly cherry and candied red fruits, but hardly resembles a hint of Belgian tripel quality.

Taste is heavily on the fruit. Large amounts of raspberry and cherry senses, but is quite dry and fleeting. Finishes is quite tonic and minerally dry with virtually no aftertaste. There is a high abv listed, but is incredibly well masked and hidden. Some real tannic seed fruit quality with a large dryness in the mid palate.

It's a well put together brew, but definitely hints at fruit more than anything, which takes away from my classic Belgian tripel sensing enjoyment.

Beer is yellow and hazy with a couple of floaties in my glass. Beer forms a thin broken head of tiny white bubbles.

Aroma is pretty fruity and kind of nice. Apricots and plums.

Beer is light in body and pretty smooth, good fruit characters overall. Drinkability good and mouthfeel good as well. I'd drink this again. Not the best tripel out there but its fine.

22 ounce bottle w/o freshness/brewed on/bottled on info, comes via Dave Roach and Tony Forder of Ale Street News fame. This one pours cloudy dark orangey amber, under a rapidly departing off white head, and leaving minor lacing. The nose is sweatily of tropical fruits. Initial impression is of a triple infused w/ a bit too much highly sweet fruit juice. Notes of sweet/sour cherries, mango, sour starburst candies. Quite a crisp and intense drying hop burst late. Certainly different. Being a lover of all things Belgian in style, and also being one who does enjoy a sweeter, yet somehow also hoppy brew, I liked it. I'm sure however that this one will not be for everybody. So proceed with caution.

Poured in to Duvel tulip.

A - Light orange with some amber spotting throughout. Translucent. A small amount of white head that quickly disappeared. Appears heavily carbonated.

S - Tartness up front with cherry and oak aromas in the background.

T - A big dry tart flavour up front. Cloves, banana, and Belgian yeast provide the typical Belgian Pale Ale notes. The finish has some subtle tart cherry and raspberry flavours along with a slight bready sweetness from the malts. I don't specifically get the passion fruit.

M -Light to medium body with a nice chew. Moderate to heavy carbonation. A little over carbonated.

Split a bomber at The Farmhouse for $13. This beer is worth checking out for the bizarre label alone. Wow. The beer appears a hazy light amber with a short white head. The aroma and flavor are big on fresh berry fruit and seeds. I'm reminded of the sensation of biting into a raspberry and chewing on the seeds. In the aroma, however, this smell comes off eerily similar to roasted turkey. Go figure. The label says it has cherries, passionfruit, and raspberries, and the former two play a big part of the taste, while the actual tripel malt just provides a pleasant backbone. Check this beer out. Definitely interesting and tasty.

Appearance: pours a pinkish orange color with a paper thin head that falls apart immediately.

Smell: raspberries, cherries, and hints of alcohol are easily detectable.

Taste: raspberries, cherries, sweet red grapefruit, and some alcohol are the dominant flavors. The passion fruit is detectable but a bit hidden. Bitterness is mild.

Mouthfeel: lightly crisp throughout. Medium bodied. Aftertaste is long on the fruit flavors and the alcohol is warming.

Drinkability: this is a decent after dinner drink, but not for a midday beer. The bomber bottle is way too much for a single session, so make sure you have some friends to share it with.
