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.

AshtonMcCobb (6498) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Oily looking texture. Nose - some dried orange and lemon notes but dominated by honey. Taste - loads more honey with some well hidden fruit notes. Palate - medium bodied with a sweet middle section that continues through the finish. Overall - too sweet. It lacks the kind of tang you get in Karmeliet or Westmalle.

3.7
Aragh (260) - POLAND - OCT 24, 2016
Kolor brudno pomarańczowy, blotny. Obwódka piany. Zapach mocno słodowy, chleb, nektar, lekko żywica i cytrusy. W smaku dobry balans ciastowo-karmelowej słodyczy i pomarańczowo-porzeczkowo-winnej kwaśności. Alkohol jest dobrze ukryty. Piwo jest pełne, ale smak nie utrzymuje się dlugo i nie pozostawia posmaku.

martjoobolut (4224) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle (from beergium). Pours golden with whiteish head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, fresh fruits, apples, candy. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fresh fruits, candy, malt. Finish is mild dry bitter with some alcohol and lingering sweetness. Drinkability is very good, despite the abv. Overall: very good, not that complex, but well made and sweet + boozy (just as I like it).

3.5
DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Aroma - toffee, cherry, vanilla, fig, and some oak. Appearance - body has a hazy amber color. The head is white and about a 1/4" and settles into a layer of foam. Fine nucleation rips at the side of the glass. Taste - has a rich nutty-like nature, there is some toffee, and cherry skins. All this is situated above some Belgian yeast. There is a very mild vanilla and oak quality. There is also the classic splash of clove, coriander, and nutmeg. Palate - body is medium, the texture sticky, carbonation is average, and the finish has a slight astringency.
