COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available year round.

It all began when a circus owner’s misfortune at a game of cards bestowed the city of Avondale with a great gift. His prize attraction, Miss Fancy the Elephant, would inadvertently become the city’s greatest spokesperson. Known as the Queen of Avondale, Miss Fancy performed a wonder of tricks at her home in Avondale Zoo. During prohibition, City Hall kept a special Miss Fancy reserve on hand at all time in order to treat her stomach aliment. When her stomach starting acting up, Mr. Todd would call the prohibition officers down to the zoo for a little hooch action.

Miss Fancy’s Tripel is a strong Belgian golden ale rich in flavor and alcohol. The use of malts, traditional hops, a proprietary yeast blend and Belgian candi sugar creates a very special beer named after a very special elephant. Miss Fancy’s Tripel is remarkably smooth and refreshing for such a high ABV beer. CAUTION! Miss Fancy’s Tripel is brewed for humans but strong enough for elephants.

(milk jug growler) clear yellow, clear bubbles, but few and far between. Nose of candi sugar, alcohol, golden raisins, a bit vinous and grapey. Taste is vinous, alcohol, golden raisin, not very complex or interesting.

Growler. Pours a nice hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma heavy on the spices, light on the alcohol which is very well hidden. Flavor is yeasty, bready, overy good example of the style without the sweetness that I find off-putting in so many US versions of the style. Very solid beer. Easy to drink and easy to like.
