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.

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!

Goodgrief (1819) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Cloudy golden color with frothy head. Rich aroma of pear like fruit. Pretty simple in its flavor, pear, candied sugar with some zesty Belgian yeast. Pretty mellow and well balanced. Nothing flashy, but tasty and worth a try.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The nose is slightly sweet and a little bit worty. A peppery sort of floral aroma with some decent spiciness and a touch of bready malt character. Has more honey notes than most tripels I’ve had. Bready and a little bit sweet with some soft fruity notes, but the yeast is actually pretty restrained. There is some light pear and subtle banana but also a subtly sweet malt character. As it warms, more floral and fruit notes come out alongside the honeyed flavour. It’s a decent brew but is missing the dryness and spice that I like in a tripel.

williamstome (1044) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Hazy gold, foamy white head. Great aroma of figs, banana, yeast, and cloves. Delicious flavor of banana, fig, yeast, booze, raisins. Smooth palate with light slightly effervescent finish. Wonderful.

scarletfire65 (1004) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle at home. Aperitif before Christmas dinner. Aroma of yeast, tropical fruit, honey. The flavor is very sweet up front and in the middle. Notes of floral honey and mango, banana, yeasty esters as it warms. Finishes with a pilsner-ish noble hop flavor.

Slipstream (2096) - 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.

tonypreto (130) - Akron, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2014
12.7 oz bottle poured into chalice. Great sweet, yeasty, slight alcohol aroma. Not much of a head. Great flavor, not too sweet, just subtle notes of fruit. Yeasty. Great mouthfeel, great carbonation. Suggested for sure.

sherm1016 (1182) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2014
375ml bottle, from Pinocchio’s. Pours a hazy, light amber color with a white head and a little lacing. Aroma is yeasty, grass, hay, clove. Medium on the palate with creamy, full carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, yeast, some grass, light bitterness, with a yeasty, spicy finish. Nice.
