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 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.

Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Hazy golden yellow, medium white head, nice lacing. Really nice tripple, malty, peber, yeast. Maybe a bit boozy.

An OK tripel. A little too spicy for my liking, but the clove and plum flavors are solid.

(Tap) aroma of brown sugar, spice, then sour fruit; hazy orange brown colour with a small tan head; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish

Swaroga (1755) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2015
Golden and clear apart that there are bits floating in it. Head is small which is a bit disapointing with this style. Also the carbonation is weak. Aroma is bread and biscuit and lots of mandarine and pear. The taste is medium sweet and the ending is moderate bitterness. The beer hides well the alcohol.

Draft at Rustico, Alexandria. Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light sweet candi notes, light farmhouse, barn wheat, hay notes. Flavor was a light sweetness. Not too over the top. Alright.
