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.

Carbonation always seems too low for a triple. Has a good aroma, although it can be muted by the lack of volatilizing bubbles. Strong perception of residual sweetness on the palate.

InPivoVeritas (240) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden with no head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, bread and apple juice (?). Very sweet with light apple and orange fruitness. Alcohol note is a bit unpleasant. Unbalanced, average beer. Expected something better.

Keg @The Vintage, Leith. I wrote, ’smells like a Belgium triple, tastes like a Belgium triple’, which just about sums it up. Sweet, fruity sweet maybe (well for me it was) overly sweet. This got worse as the glass went on. I’d still like to buy a bottle and age it as i believe there is a great beer in there, somewhere.

cgarvieuk (14075) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Keg at the vintage... Hazy amber... Thin white lacing.... Soft sweet orange fruit nose... Again too fizzy and really doesn’t suit the style... Ruch sweet toffee malt... Biy banana yeastyness... Soft rich oily peacj orange fruit linger... Bit too heavy and fizzy

Pale gold with no real head. Funky esters with tinge of pineapple. Taste is very sweet. A bit crude. Hides the alcohol with the sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrBeerFanatic (841) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pours a medium carbed creamy head, light honey color. Aromas of banana, light cask/wood, spice, wheat/yeasty, light clove. Flavors bready, slight sherry, light caramel, light cask/wood, slight alcohol (mostly hidden), slight grass. Medium sweet, medium mouthfeel. Leaves little aftertaste, mostly clean.

rlpeeler (85) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - JAN 9, 2014
From bottle pours golden with light white head that fades. Taste is smooth malt that is starts floral and ends with citrus. Good mouth feel and texture throughout. No alcohol taste despite the abv. A bit more carbonated than necessary but otherwise nothing to complain about. Quite nice.

danimerolone (20) - ITALY - JAN 2, 2014
Bottiglia. Colore arancio, schiuma che svanisce istantaneamente. Al naso miele e biscotti, al palato note maltate con finale polveroso. Buona interpretazione.

Aroma had cinnamon hints. Not crazy for the appearance...urine with an infection. But the taste is okay, not as strong as the 10% indicates.
