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.

Une triple, certes pas d’abbaye, comme indiqué, mais néanmoins bien typée et d’un niveau abv respectable de 10 % … Signalons le bouchon qui nous parle de brasserie alimentée en solaire... A vrai dire, on s’en tape, c’est dans le verre que ça se passe … Couleur doré brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes, partout, très nombreuses. Mousse blanche crémeuse, joli nappage général à 2 mm. Arômes de blé, houblons, pointe d’oignons confits, marmelade de pommes. 1ère bouche quasi veloutée, à la très belle entame pleine, sur malt/houblon/épices. Arrière-bouche où un côté épicé/fleuri un peu indéfinissable domine, agréable mais incongru. 2ème à la très belle texture, et à l’ensemble bien malté, mais pas très harmonieux. Arrière-bouche pleine aussi, longue, mais pas vraiment heureuse. 3ème à la texture splendide, et un peu mieux intégrée. Arrière-bouche large, ample, avec des nuances intéressantes et d’autres moins. Longueur plus nette, très belle, pleine, maltée. Jambes groupées, serrées, fines. Levure douce, mais bien trop faible pour une triple de ce niveau. Alcool pas du tout accablant, progressif, mais il n’harmonise pas l’ensemble. Finale belle et profonde, quoique manquant un peu de complexité. CONCLUSION : beaucoup de bonnes choses donc, en particulier la texture remarquable, mais on manque de l’harmonie des vraies triples ...

Theydon_Bois (12058) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle split at LKS HeIgHtS, thanks to Fergus, 21/04/15. Very lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is caramel, grain, paper, straw, pretty basic aroma. Taste improves comprising caramel, light spice, prunes, vanilla, dates, light booze. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, light warming booze in the close. So so affair, a very basic model lacking any depth or complexity.

35,5cl flesje via Firma Bier Alcoholpercentage van 10% Uitgeschonken in Leffe glas Uiterlijk: goudoranje, schuimkraag trekt snel weg Aroma en smaak: fruitig beetje als dadel, kandijsuiker, honingachtig, erg zoet, Belgisch gist Conclusie: tripel met voornamelijk zoete tonen, daardoor niet echt verrassend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The_Osprey (2912) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle share at Leighton’s. Thanks to Fergus. Pale orange, lightly sparkling, pretty clear, small foamy white head. Aroma is biscuits, varnish, caramel, a bit meaty. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is boozey up front, biscuits, buttery, dry. Too much booze up-front for my liking. But alright.

Leighton (13513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2015
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Fergus. Pours totally clear gold with a slight, foamy white head. The nose has so,e fusel notes, rich bread, rotting citrus, suggestions of butterscotch. Big sweet flavor with rich doughy malts, sugar, slight yeast, alcohol, hints of butterscotch. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish, a little boozy, with lots of doughy wheat bread. So so.

A nice Belgian trippel. Has some floaters and a ton of carbonation. Not overly fruity in taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vaiz (3740) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is quite spicy, some alcohol, ripe fruits, candy and malty. Flavor is malty sweet with a strong alcohol burn, spicy and somewhat cheap. Not the best tripel.
