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.

Bottle. I got banana right off the bat. Smooth and light, even for a tripel. Clove notes do come through at the end. Not bad; not great.

commonmac (323) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Tap at Ray J’s in NE Mpls. Clear orange or maybe a dark gold tripel served up in a snifter glass. Smell is...not good. Like a beer that’s been left out to parish under a hot sun. Unfortunately, the taste follows suit. Just not a good rendition of a tripel. Tastes bitter and a little like rotten fruit. Splurge for an actual Belgian instead.
