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 brought back from MI. odd little thing. sort of tea-colored, dark for a triple, with some lacing following a thin tan head. lots of unexpected aromas here -- wet earth, leather, and, yes, asparagus being preeminent among them. interesting yeasty phenolics on the palate, and a smokiness I’d liken to lapsang souchong -- definitely a tea-like character. not bad, but not your standard triple by any means.

From bottle. Pours clear honey color with little or no head. Aroma is big on bananas and Belgian yeasts. Taste has a mild sweetness, but the bitterness is forward and lingers. Medium mouthfeel. Alcohol well-hidden.

Interessant gemacht mit all seiner Fluffigkeit, der ganzen Hefe und dem belgischen Hopfen, der zu einer ordentlichen Perlung führt. Schwer, vollmundig und süffig. Keine schlechte Sache.
