COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why is the Grim Reaper holding a mailbox? Well, that mailbox is from a dead Dark Horse beer. The Grim Reaper better know as "Death" was quite fond of our classic Sapient Summer Wheat Ale. When we changed it into a Belgian Style Triple, Death thought it would only be appropriate to bring something from that beer into this beer. So he picked the mailbox, and we weren’t about to argue with him. You can say what you want about him, but that Death sure has a big heart. So anyway...we brewed this beer with a Trappist yeast strain so it is very traditional. The flavors are incredibly complex with notes of mild fruit and finishes with a bit of clove. Although this beer is higher in alcohol it is very smooth and finishes dry on the palate.

Wasn’t my favorite by any means. Odd taste going down and even worse as it lingers.

mikeyo1 (814) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle @ home. Pours a cloudy amber liquid with a small head. After 5 years in the cellar the aroma is slightly yeasty and fruity with honey and caramel notes. Taste is similar and not very complex anymore. Notes of oxidation, dark fruits, honey, red fruits, pears and caramel.

TBone (17429) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2017
Bottled 355ml (old bottle from Beergium)
Hazy orange-brown color, small off-white head. Riped fruits, Belgian yeast in the nose. Slightly oxidized. Medium-bodied. Flavor has overriped fruits (banana, peach), light alcohol and some oxidized notes. A bit of bubblegummy. Not in top condition.

Rask0lnikov (1244) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 7, 2017
330ml bottle. Thanks Martin. Pours hazy dark yellow colour. Thin white head. Sweet, caramelly, honey-like aroma. Grainy beginning. Hints of honey in the middle. Raisins. Sweet, slightly grainy, mead like finish. Honey and raisins in the aftertaste. Bit watery body. Rather medium bodied, not very good example of a triple. Bit out of balance.

migwell (365) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Yeasty. spicy aroma, flavor is fruit and yeast, sweet and spicy, rather complex but this is a fine brew, quite strong, but full bodied and flavorful enough to disguise its kick. It’s a delightful, cloudy orange brew with a minimal head and no lacing at all. I would advise this brewery to rethink the graphic design of their bottle... death and the mailbox in muddy reds, oranges and greens announces something much more drab and lifeless than this superior brew. Another note: I drank this with a very spicy meal which featured a habanero pepper chopped into the mix, and it stood up bravely, and in the end won the day!

scarletfire65 (1454) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2017
Bottle at home, birthday gift from Lauren. The aroma is pear, banana, spice, raw sweet dough. Yeasty esters produce good clove and white pepper flavors. Bitter finish. Nice triple .
