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.

Aurelius (4171) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2012
Pleasant, mild banana nose with just a little non-objectionable sogginess... Though the aroma was a bit overpowered by the simmering mash or wort in the taproom. Lightly misty, medium gold. Not much head. Well-buttered, peaches and plum tanginess. Melon rind, lemon pith notes. A little woody, alcohol astringency. Medium sweet. Medium body, finish curls your tongue a bit. Pretty good. Taproom. Entered from the company iPad.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin rim of head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bitter melon rind, clove, peppery spices. Flavor is a little sweeter with light fruits, citrus, and lemon with buttery, bready malt and spices. Tasty triple - alcohol is not apparent! 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

bleeng (1521) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Draft at J Clyde Birmingham. Hazy bright gold with no head. Huge yeasty mildly sweet nose. Taste is very yeasty with a honey sweet flavor. Some very mild spiciness. Just a tad too thick and sweet for me but a good attempt at a traditional tripel.
