COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why is the Grim Reaper holding a mailbox? Well, that mailbox is from a dead Dark Horse beer. The Grim Reaper better know as "Death" was quite fond of our classic Sapient Summer Wheat Ale. When we changed it into a Belgian Style Triple, Death thought it would only be appropriate to bring something from that beer into this beer. So he picked the mailbox, and we weren’t about to argue with him. You can say what you want about him, but that Death sure has a big heart. So anyway...we brewed this beer with a Trappist yeast strain so it is very traditional. The flavors are incredibly complex with notes of mild fruit and finishes with a bit of clove. Although this beer is higher in alcohol it is very smooth and finishes dry on the palate.

Draft at Rustico, Alexandria. Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light sweet candi notes, light farmhouse, barn wheat, hay notes. Flavor was a light sweetness. Not too over the top. Alright.

JorisPPattyn (8434) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2015
Small off-white head over lightly carbonated, faintly veiled orange beer. Spicy, yeasty nose; hint at coriander, white candi sugar, sweet carrots. Dry-ish flavour, "hot" malts (high fermentation temperatures, anybody, to "act Belgian?") Caramel, toasted, finish is faintly vegetable. Lame carbonated feel, medium bodied at best; aftertaste converging to uttely neutral. Poor trappist strain to have to work with this. "Faint" is the all-round word, here.

RexTalionis (3018) - FINLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle. Golden hazy, whitish head. Garden fruityness, bit of christmas spicyness and a dash of grassyness in aroma. A bit rough perhaps. More on the sweeter fruitier side tastewise, with some yeasty spicy notes coming through. No sign of the abv though.

Finhead (1351) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Hazy, golden pour with a small, white head. The aroma has fruity esters with mild spice. It has a light, smooth body with average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with an easy finish. The alcohol content is very well-hidden.

tricksta_p (1954) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2015
Aroma of bready malt, ripe fruits, orange, apricots, spicy yeast, hoppy notes. Flavour is medium sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Not boozy at all. Nice fruity Tripel.

This beer is awful. Dark horse does a lot of great work but this is absolutely not one of those.
