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.

hawthorne00 (2256) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of oranges, apricots, honeyed dough, cloves. A bit sticky. Wow, heaps of cloves in the taste, not just at the end. Coriander and banana too - all a bit much. There’s some pleasant honeyed dough, citrus and apricot there too and the spices are less harsh as it warms.
