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.

Pours Golden orange with a finger of head. Aroma of sweet caramel, pear, orange peel, and alcohol. Smooth medium body with a nice warmth from the barely detectable 10% of biz hiding in the background. Flavors of sweet caramel, apricot, lemon zest, and a slight acidity. Clean finish with a lingering of alcoholic warmth. Let this sucker warm up before it warms you up. A good triple but no where near as dry and light as I would like. Blue cheese likes this beer.

HighlanderOne (989) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Poured from bottle. Lotsa fruit and malt in aroma. Amber with hardly a head. Fruit and citrus flavors with big vanilla, cake, brown sugar, and a bit of spice. Noticed the alcohol on the first sip but not after. Just delicious.

If am an Abbey style ale fan , this is a good one .. Reminds me of Brothers thelonious. Very sharp, crisp beer with apple fruit tones. Great cold.

Bue en bouteille de 35cl, couleur ambrée petite mousse peu d’effervescence, une bière avec un nez un peu banane, en bouche j’ai été étonné par le taux d’alcool, j’avoue j’avais pas lu avant, assez longue en bouche on a une attaque sur la banane, la noix de cajou et un peu le caramel, super agréable... Je crois que c’est ma première américaine de style belge qui s’en sort très bien !

Zekada (64) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
The nose has hints of hay, tropical fruits and some alcohol. Pours a golden color with a slight haziness and a medium white creamy head. Looks tasteful. The taste is full and has a nice mix of caramel, sweet fruits and hops. Is has a nice feeling in the mouth with a slight creaminess. Overall a pleseant beer, but no blockbuster

JorgeLee (1153) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe, during the Belgium-US game. Splendid bright golden colour, although no yeast present. Sweet malty character, syrupy, strong alcoholic bite. Almost a barley wine with a tiny hint of some Belgian yeast character, could do with being drier and more balanced for me.

Dark golden orange with a bleach white head. Its thick, syrupy, and bready big sweet orange wheat and sugar candy taste. to much sweet for this guy
