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.

Gachupines (977) - USA - OCT 10, 2012
Hazy yellow with thin white head. Aroma is primarily cloves and banana. Flavor is a bit strong on the banana and clove profile. A little bread-like in the finish, it’s an adequate tripel, but I wouldn’t pick it out again.

Fľaša. Tmavo zlatá farba, pena skoro žiadna. Vôňa ovocná, korenistá, alkoholová. Chuť ovocná, jemne karamelová, korenistá a samozrejme alkoholová. Alkohol dosť vyráža. Telo plnšie, suchá dochuť.
