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.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2005
12oz - Nice aroma of sweet banana and yeast. Hazy golden color with a medium head that stuck around and left some lacing. Flavor is a bit weak considering the aroma. Sweet candy sugar yeast with banana undertones. Sticky palate that does not match the taste or style. Not bad, but not great.

Tap: golden with decent white head that fades to a ring of bubbles. Yeasty banana aroma, almost wheat-like, with lots of candy sugar. Initial flavor is all banana, that turns to straight sugar, very quickly. Candy sugar aftertaste. A little less sweetness would go a long way.

12 fl. oz brown bottle, from heemer77. Poured a cloudy honeyish gold colour, lots of yeast partiucles.Head fluffs up big at first hen settles to a finely bubbled foam. Banana and citrus in the nose, sweetish. Honeyish flavours, fruity with some more banana, some light yeast, wheat, alcohol is well restrained.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Dark gold with no head. The aroma is honey with some peanuts. There is also some bananas and nutmeg. The taste is bananas with some nutmeg and slight biscuit. This is fairly nice, but not a great triple.

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2005
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy glowing soft orange color, almost resembling some wits. Fluffy perfumy yeast nose full of bananas. Flavor is quite sweet, though not to the absurd level of Karmiliet, but still fairly sweet for what I like in this style. Fluffy marshmallow and perfumy yeast flavors all over this one, with a sickly sweet overripe lemon and honeydew finish. Slight bitterness near the finish, with some toasty biscuit-likemalts, but overall it’s hard to get past the twangy sugars in this one. Resembles homebrew.

Pailhead (4809) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2005
On tap: Citrus, banana, yeast, and spice aroma. Hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Malty up front with lots of banana and yeast. Lightly bitter and spice finish. Slightly acidic in the finish. Banana spice aftertaste.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - APR 2, 2005
Bottle. Clouded light amber color with a fair white head. Good amount of sugar in the aroma with a touch of yeast and spice. Flavors run about the same with sugar being predominant and lighter hints of spice and yeast. Very solid, but lacking in sophistication.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Unbelievable price on this stuff. A nice Belgian tripel with all the trim and lace. Nothing that really sets it apart from other tripels, but very solidly done. I could drink a lot and at this price, why not?

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Bottle. Cloudy straw colored with somewhat of a head. Aromas of bubblegum, yeast and lemons mostly. Taste is sweet (maybe too much) candi sugars, peaches, orange and coriander. Lacking in the yeast department and not very appealing when the head rests into nothing.
