Beautiful. Dense foam, lovely lacing. It has a very cloudy golden body. Smells floral, almost like basil. it's great but doesn't smell alot like it taste. The taste has got something different about it. Hard to say much besides 5/5! Great great great!

Cocodrie has a thin-to-medium, off-white head, an opaque, orange-gold appearance, and some glass lacing rings. Aroma is of pears, spiced white bread, and banana cream pie. Taste is of peaches, sugar, and spiced white bread, with some noticeable, yet, in no way harsh, hop bitterness to balance it out. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Cocodrie finishes dry.

Poured from a bottle that I believe says "151109" (for last November). Yellow gold, unfiltered (opaque) wheat beer look, with a bright white, fluffy head that dissipates to a bubbly, unevenly laced line. Smell is a little grainy at first, but as the beer warms and opens up the citrus and complimentary phenol(?) smell shines through. Taste is very bright, creamy, with an earthy citrus splash that has a bright Belgian-yeast finish. Hides the alcohol as if this was half the strength that it is. Very filling beer, extremely refreshing, and deceivingly alcoholic. Competitive pricing and made in the south as well. Would love to try other Belgian-inspired IPA's or beers in general. I really enjoyed the balance and almost tropical-like pairing of the yeast and citrusy hops. Will drink again.

Poured from 12 oz into snifter.

Pours a dark, clear gold with fine white head and good lacing.

Smell is light pilsner malts, spicy and fruity belgian yeast, and a bit of fruity hops.

Taste is mild but very pleasant. The light maltiness gives way to a nice bit of spice from the yeast, and is carried away by the slightly bitter, earthy hops.

Feel is creamy and medium body with thin but full carb - much bigger feeling beer than I expected.

A lot of the beer is in the front half, but this really leaves me coming back for more. Nice and full for a tripel, although like other reviewers mentioned the IPA is underplayed. The ABV is very well hidden - I could pound these pretty easily. This would be a great easy drinking high ABV summer beer. I really enjoyed this, but was expecting a tripel rather than an IPA (hadn't seen "IPA" on bottle until I poured it.)

A: beautiful golden color, hazy, hefe look to it. S: classic Belgian banana, cloves, but not over the top. T: well balanced bittering and maltiness. Boozy burn at the finish.

12oz Brown bottle with twist off cap and best by date of 01/26/15. Poured into a tulip glass

Appearance: Pours a clear gold with 1 and 1/2 fingers of white head and great lacing

Smell: Yeasty phenols

Taste: Starts off with belgian-yeast spice and then the hops come forward in the middle leading to and citrus and piney finish

Mouthfeel: Medium with good attenuation and finishes quite dry

Overall: I'm impressed, a triple and an IPA are too very different styles and this beer manages to balance both quite nicely. There almost no hop presence in the aroma but only comes forward in the finish. Provides great balance between two different ends of the style spectrum.
