COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available year round.

It all began when a circus owner’s misfortune at a game of cards bestowed the city of Avondale with a great gift. His prize attraction, Miss Fancy the Elephant, would inadvertently become the city’s greatest spokesperson. Known as the Queen of Avondale, Miss Fancy performed a wonder of tricks at her home in Avondale Zoo. During prohibition, City Hall kept a special Miss Fancy reserve on hand at all time in order to treat her stomach aliment. When her stomach starting acting up, Mr. Todd would call the prohibition officers down to the zoo for a little hooch action.

Miss Fancy’s Tripel is a strong Belgian golden ale rich in flavor and alcohol. The use of malts, traditional hops, a proprietary yeast blend and Belgian candi sugar creates a very special beer named after a very special elephant. Miss Fancy’s Tripel is remarkably smooth and refreshing for such a high ABV beer. CAUTION! Miss Fancy’s Tripel is brewed for humans but strong enough for elephants.

LilBeerDoctor (3931) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin rim of head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bitter melon rind, clove, peppery spices. Flavor is a little sweeter with light fruits, citrus, and lemon with buttery, bready malt and spices. Tasty triple - alcohol is not apparent! 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Cybercat (5841) - Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Pours clear golden with a nice beige head. Aroma features toasted malt and woody hops, not strong but inviting. Flavor bursts with toasted malt, apple, pear and woody notes for a pleasing tripel. Mouthfeel presents good body and lively fizz. Follow the elephant.

Murky dark golden, light white ringed crust. Nose is big peppery lemon, creamy. Initial taste is firm sweetness, proper peppery. Carbonation is super firm, mouthfeel is a big grating. Finishes firm lemon again, busy enough and lingers rich and tinny.
