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 (257) - 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!

The nose did not impress me, mostly biscuity. A touch of spice. Appearance is pale and clear with spotty lacing. Decent soft carb hits your mouth 1st, like a nice Italian wine. Then spiciness and fruit burst from this. Finishes dry. Slow initial impression, but things improved.

nearbeer (4156) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2015
375 ml. bottled 2/19/15. Lightly hazy, pale golden body is active and supports a crunchy, sugary disc of foam. Nose is spicy honey with a light touch of resin and papaya bubblegum. Tastes of toast, spicy white wine, parsley, honey and touches of citrus and resin. Near-medium body has medium carbonation and a spicy-dry yeast finish that answers the big maltiness well. Seems a bit boozier than 8%.

AirForceHops (4508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 9, 2015
375 ml bottle purchased at Georgio’s in Billarica, MA, hazy gold with very little head. Aroma is fruity yeast, sugar and traces of ripe banana.

The body is on the lighter side of medium with a dry. The flavor is wet newspaper, old malt, wheat and has a mild sour note. The flavor has fallen off or was never very good in the 1st place. The paper and old malt is not pleasant. Very disappointing for this brewery.
