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.

omikr0n (808) - Prague, - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy orange to amber with nice white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is wheat, overripe fruits, alcohol, yeast. Flavor is malt, fruits, alcohol. While the alcohol is totally present in both the aroma and the flavor, somehow it fits in the overall impression. Quite nice.

Turtles (632) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle of BeerGeek Bottle Shop, Prague. Clear golden with a medium size, white head, long lasting, leaving lacing. Sweet, crisp flavor, yeast, honey, figs. Smooth and sweet mouthfeel. Taste has a direct impact on alcohol, sweet flavors, banana, caramel, apricot, honey, but does not hide booze tastes.

UXO (871) - CANADA - JUL 29, 2015
Appearance: slightly hazy medium gold with some particulate, a fat finger of rocky ivory head, good retention and moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, biscuity malt, caramel, mild citrus and herbal. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, warming finish. (3/5) A fairly uninspiring tripel. Nothing stands out as being poorly-done, as such, but then again, nothing stands out as being great. The aromas could be more emphatic, and there’s not much excuse for particulate in any style, but the ABV integration is actually not bad. Bottom line, I wouldn’t say “no” to this, but I wouldn’t go looking for it again, either. (12/20)

# 3566 ersma: wo kommt das her? manchmal findet man ja was im keller, von dem man keine ahnung hat, wie es da reingekommen ist. orange-bernsteinfarben und leicht trübe. wenig schaum, der recht flüchtig ist. der geruch ist röstmalzig mit karamellnoten. dazu kräuternoten. der antrunk ist süßlich, malzig, melassig. aromen von karamell, nassem heu, herben kräutern und honig. leicht spritig. die mitte bringt hopfen mit, gleichzeitig wird es klebrig an den lippen. der abgang ist überraschend herb, obwohl röstmalz, karamell und das melassige prägend bleiben. die flasche ist ok. fazit: etwas süß und klebrig für ein tripel. die aromen sind bis aufs melassige aber angenehm und ausgewogen. gut trinkbar. 9,10,11,12,12,11 - 10,85

stevoj (2963) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle from On the Fly. Close, but no cigar. Everything right in the wheelhouse for the style, herbal and grassy notes, but nothing exceptional.

theOptimator (329) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Aroma is light belgian, lemony, maybe some tropical fruits, rye bread. Nice but a bit underwhelming... had to really search for the aroma. Appearance is golden straw, crystal clear, tiny little head that fell flat quickly. This was a bottle on a non refrigerated shelf so that could be to blame for the non-existent head.... maybe. Taste is citrus forward, big sweet malt, pronounced bitterness.. maybe from hops but reminds me of orange peel. Palate is medium. This beer has too much alcohol heat and a hint of astringency. No creaminess at all. Comes across a bit watery , flavors disappear quickly. Too bitter for my taste. Overall this beer doesn’t pay off. A difficult beer to do well. Too big and just ends up being sloppy.

Pringao_Toribi (312) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 24, 2015
In short: yeasty bitter beer. Aroma: bread, yeast and malts. Appearance: hazy yellow with white foam. Taste: Light sweet and medium bitter. Palate: Lively sour yeast spikes.
