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.

This starts with an aroma that doesn’t quite match the style. There’s some of the Belgian spice, with a stronger sweet aroma. Pours a cloudy dark amber, with almost no head. I’m not sure if I would say the flavor is traditional... there’s a bitterness in the finish that stands out. The spice is there to start with, but quickly fades. It’s interesting, not sure if I’m planning on getting it again.

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.

Tap @ Beer Temple, shared with Caesar, Benzai & Mr. Hangover. Golden color. White head. Aroma’s: sweet fruit, with caramel, malts retronasal (more triple-like). Flavor is light sweet, malty, light bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes moderate bitter. Decent triple, certainly by American standards.

Draft @ Beer Temple. Pours a clear golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is mostly fruity yeast, slightly oak and herbal. A bit strange and flavor is sweet and yeasty with bready notes. Just another mediocre tripel in my book, yeasty and sweet with an alcoholic touch in the end. Meh.
