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.

A very old bottle I’ve had in the fridge for several years. Has a tad of funk, not sure if this is age or the yeastiness. Looks like a Rose, no head to speak of, vanilla, bubble gum, quite sweet. Alcohol is buried under the malts and wet hay funk, the spices others mention has disappeared with time, leaving only sticky sweetness.

"not quite as smooth as the dubbel, it’s a solid effort nonetheless. Very spicy, drier, in the nose and flavor. i like this more than most trippels. solid."

Poured from bottle. Aromas of butterscotch, clove, and citrus. Has a pale amber colour with minimal head. Light to medium sweet taste. Light to medium body, with oily texture, and a somewhat dry finish. Not bad, but certainly not great either, seems a bit too sweet.

ElDesmadre (1613) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. Banana, apple, apricotsugary pale malts and alcohol in the aroma. Where’s the spice? Fullish for a tripel, sweet and boozy. Drinkable but far from what it aspires to.

Bov (9602) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 28, 2014
draught@Erzbierschof - light hazy bronze beer with a long lasting yet little white foam; yeasty and perfumy, ripe yellow fruits; sweet and full-bodied, light sourness and a long fruity (apple dominates) and perfumy finish with lingering yeasty notes - pretty triple indeed

Des odeurs de caramel aigre-douce Une couleur or et une mousse qui ne tient pas En bouche on sens Des arômes de caramel de pêche, elle est lourde... Ne sont pratiquement pas la force de l'alcool

Bottle. Murky golden brown color, medium white head that settles quickly. Aroma of straw, hay, and a bit of cardboard. Taste is very sweet straw.

superspak (2684) - Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2014
22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy bright orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Some nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, orange, pear, apple, plum, light banana, clove, pepper, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of apricot, orange, pear, apple, plum, light banana, clove, pepper, honey, cadi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, orange, plum, pear, apple, clove, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Tripel style. Good balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hops flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

sharkydodson (242) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - AUG 10, 2014
the aroma of malt, fruits and dry wine... the taste is rather clear, with shades of toffee and, a little bit, bananas... dry, sweet and bitter aftertaste... very good abbey ale in Belgian traditions...

TEJA (1306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle was a gift from Monks café, Stockholm. Big beige head that quickly dissapear. Almost clear solid golden color. Small aroma from dried fruit and almonds. Sweet malty with a nice belgian yeast carracter. A bit too malty to be perfect, could be a bit more sugar instead of the malt to make it lighter in the body. Still a nice beer.
