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.

On tap at jerrys on division. P is opaque chestnut orange with a soapy white head. Nose of orange peel and wheat. Taste is light wheaty malt and orange. Peaches and clove are faint but present in complexity. It’s 90+ degrees out so this fit the bill

12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a ruby gold, crystal clear with a collar of white head. No lace. The aroma is strong trippel. Lots of malt and Belgian yeast. It's not good. I hate trippels. Funky and Belgian. Ugh. The flavor is awful. Belgian trippel syrup. Malts and yeast dominate. Lots of clove and gross. The mouth feel is thinner and syrupy but with a no carbonation and a lingeringly clove-filled finish. This is just not good. I dislike all of the trippels ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebone1988 (530) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Not happy about it. Aroma is metallic, clove, banana, onion, dying. Appearance is dark straw, white head. Taste is banana, clove, sugar, a mess. Mouthfeel is abrasive, harsh carbonation and not good. Overall, not a fan of the style and this is a bad version of it.

StueyD (1502) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2015
A bright mid Amber coloured beer with a thick off white coloured head. A light fruity aroma, vinous and a touch vinegary, this then brings in a light vegetal aroma. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, a noticeable fruity bitterness, a vinegar sourness that brings in a slight, boiled cabbage flavour, different, but not unpleasant. There is a smoother, boozy yeasty taste towards the end that soothes the sour and bitter flavours in the finish. Bottle from Beers of Europe.

TheJester (2218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2015
355 mL bottle. Hazy orange-amber. Not much head. Strong aroma of ripe fruit and berries, but not sweet. The fruitiness is a little milder in the flavour, but there is an added earthiness. Finishes with a little booze. Lowish carbonation for the style. Interesting one.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2015 This beer has great color and head. It has a nice spiced flavor, but does have a weird after taste that I can’t place. Over all good beer.

nearbeer (4291) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2015
12 oz. looks like it was bottled 4/13/15. Nearly opaque orange-brown with a creamy disc of foam. Nose is spicy yeast, brown sugar, light banana, clove and apple. Taste is the same, with maybe a hint of wooden hop on the finish. Medium body has a nice balance with the drying spicy yeast providing the main counter to the big malt and candi sugar presence. Pleasant medium carbonation. Tasty, but not in my top tier of Tripels.

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

Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Nose is heavy banana esters. Taste is somewhat sweet. Not a favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
