COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewers of Anderson Valley had to conjure the High Priestess of Fermentation to help them formulate and create this rare hand-crafted elixer. It is luxuriant, smooth, more that a little wild, and at 10% alcohol, it's bound to raise your spirits. Open the Bottle and greet the High Priestess. You are worthy.

arondee (561) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, raisins, sugar, it hits all the belgian notes you’d expect a triple to hit. The taste was a bit of a letdown to me. Very alcoholic, it tastes like it was taken out of the fermenter too early and could use another 6 months or a year settling out. It’s a little too abrasive and has some off-tastes from the yeast. Banana, cloves, alcohol, cherries, and cough syrup. I wouldn’t rush out to get another bottle.

Aroma is spices, citrus and a hint of heat/alcohol. The flavor is spices, malts, citrus/fruit and a tangy/alcoholic finish.

Stuedmaster (208) - Vista, California, USA - APR 25, 2014
22 oz. bomber poured into a big wine glass, served at 50 degrees F. Aroma of caramel malt, grape nuts cereal, bread, Swiss cheese, honey, and nuts. Golden orange color with a slight white head that is quickly gone, no lacing. Tastes kind of generic, like a very malty Belgian clone that just doesn’t quite get there. Lots of caramel, wheat, and bread, not much else. Has a slight tartness in the finish, which is nice. This is a decent triple but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it. Medium to full body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and sweet/tart finish. Very grainy, caramel, and run of the mill.

puboflyons (2121) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2014
From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is orange-copper-amber with a short-lived white head. The aroma is pleasing with its Belgian sugars, toasted malts, and low hop character. Light to medium body. The taste begins nice with plenty of toasted malt and vague spice character but there is a difficult to define medicinal after taste that kind of brings it all down.

frlrv1020 (88) - Miami, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2014
I don’t know why this beer gets low ratings. Very smooth, and well rounded. Not too sweet, buttery, with just enough banana and sourness in the taste. Yeast and bread in the smell. Very unappreciated beer.

mmahut (951) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 15, 2014
Clear amber body with low head. Aroma is honey, little spicy, background of black peppers and a lot of the yeasty character. Taste has candy sweetness upfront with low spicy bitterness. Alcohol in the aftertaste. Body is full, medium carbonation.

Bosbouw (1189) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2014
Heldere ora je kleur met weinig schuim. Ruikt niet zo sterk, mout, fruit. Smaakt fruit, zoetig, mout. Goede zoetige smaak. Beetje alcohol nasmaak.

tricksta_p (1048) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
Aroma of bready malts, citrus fruits, orange peel, yeast, hints of spice. Flavour is yeast, malty and fruity sweetness, with a lot of orange peel in the aftertaste. Packs a punch at 10%, alcohol is slightly noticeable in the flavour. Pretty good Tripel.

MichaelAwesome (3919) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 11, 2014
Sehr fein, leicht dicklich, dazu ordentlich hefig und hopfig. Süßlich im Aroma mit etwas Zucker, ja, Karamell. Mehr als trinkbar - wundervolle Interpretation einen belgisches Tripel.
