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.

matty (217) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2013
12.7 oz. bottle poured into a Trappist glass. Pours a gold color with some yeast sediment and plenty of carbonation. White head settles to a small circular film in the center of the glass. Aroma of yeast, grapes and a touch of sourness. Medium light body, sweet taste. Slightly dry finish. Excellent beer. I tried this with some aged sharp cheddar cheese - great combination!

Slipstream (2076) - USA - DEC 11, 2014
This came in a champagne-corked 375 ml bottle - what for? It has a floral aroma, with some yeast and honeycake. The taste is like a cross between a lager and a tripel - lightly sharp hops side by side with golden honey sweetness and graham crackers. The hops remind me of mainstream lagers unfortunately. A fine brew, but not a superior tripel.

hfmejias (816) - Dover, Delaware, USA - NOV 7, 2014
12.7 Fl. Oz. This beer pours quite nice; clear, golden, lots of carbonation and very big (about three fingers) white foamy head that left lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is not too strong, mostly fruit and spices. Taste is sweet, a bit bready, lots of spices. Very nice tripel, quite enjoyable.
