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.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2012
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.

The_Osprey (2785) - 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.
