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.

Very pale, highly carbonated, lofty foam head. Aromas of lemon, apple, spice (corriander?) and malt. Maybe some bread, too. Very sweet and mild flavoring. Yeast, floral/fruit, with a mildly bitter finish. Pleasant surprise.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Sampled at the Milwaukee YEHa!05 courtesy of Hezron: Pours a clear golden with a thin ring of white head. Lightly floral, sweet biscuity Belgian malty aroma has a touch of bready yeast. Starts sweet with toffee and floral with hops, finishing more dry and bitter. Nice authenticity and complexity with a smooth finish that hides the abv well.

Thanks to Chuck for sharing. The beer pours to a bright copper/golden body with a thin white head. Hazy with noticeable carbonation. The aroma is very nice. Reminds me of the hay fields. Also black pepper and dried apricots. The flavor is melons and hay and apricots. Spicy. Decent. The palate is a bit syrupy with noticeable alcohol. Almost drying to the palate.

Thanks to Herzon at the Milwaukee Yeha. Hazy straw color with a taller fluffy white head. Light fruit and mild citrus and pepper hops come to play in the aroma. Light and spritzy feel. Light pale malt with a touch of orange zest and melon. Some candi and dry honey also seem to be in the profile. Warming as it continues. a very nice triple effort.

Lemon, citrusy aroma with a hint of pepper in the aroma. Pale yellow with a thin white head. Lemon citrus flavor with some peppery spice and a bit of caramel malt in the finish. Nice and sweet. Palate is a little full and could get cloying. Thanks to EyeDrinkAle for the bottle.
