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.

chinchill (1813) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2013
12 oz bottle with cryptic stamp on neck served in a Paulaner Weissbier glass. Pours slightly hazy amber with a large frothy white head. Good retention and lacing effects. Aroma: sweet and spicy banana notes; yeasty with some wheat. Not what I’d expect for style. Taste: lightly sweet with a pronounced, but not overpowering fruitiness that mainly consists of banana. Bready malts with a clear contribution from wheat. Alcohol esters reveal the high ABV. Feel: soft, medium-light body. O: strange tripel that tastes more like an eisbock or hefe-weizen than a Belgian Tripel.

Tap at stagshead. Pours hazy golden with creamy white head. Nose of yeast and vanillas. Tastes of banana, bubblegum, yeast, oranges, cloves and rosemary. Sweet finish. But just enough fizzy carbonation to overcome sweetness factor. Decent
