COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by nature’s untamed beauty, LaGrave (pronounced \l?-gräv\) is the first of our 12.7-oz. corked and caged bottle releases. Bottle conditioned and highly carbonated, this Triple Golden Ale is steeped in the tradition of strong ales originally brewed in Belgium. The unique Belgian yeast forms the bedrock of LaGrave’s complex flavors. Strong and alluring at 8% ABV, LaGrave boasts a sweet, fruity flavor with a well-rounded mouthfeel and semi-dry, lingering bitter finish.

radio_nowhere (1018) - Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Bottle into Trappist glass. Cloudy golden color with amber’ish hue, quite bubbly with white foamy head. Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast (coriander, clove, orange zest, some banana), straw and candy sugar. Taste adds notes of grass, some white wine, pepper and a light fruitiness. Light body, heavy carbonation, spritzy, dry with light bitter peppery finish. A very nice tripel.

JaBier (5160) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2015
Bottle shared by a friend. Hazy gold pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of malt, Belgian yeast esters and some tartness. Malty flavor giving way to a grape character that I tend to get out of certain trappist ales with some booze and caramel before a fruity finish.

The carbonation was good. It isn’t worth running around trying to find but it was fun to try,. If you have one nearby pick it up for a taste. Bottle...even at brewery. No tap available.

reggiedunlop (3401) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours a clear and bright gold with a huge white head...good retention and lacing. Aroma is subdued but has a soft peach, a touch of white grape and very faint spice like a coriander. Flavor Is more dry and spice forward...some mild leather and earthy/faintly resinous hops...champagney. lots going on with good balance. Mouthfeel is light / medium and silky with a dry fairly bitter/rindy finish.
