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.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a hazy amber colour with a smooth body and low head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, flowers and fruits. Taste of hops, Belgian yeast, wheat, caramel, bread and blossoms. Sweet-yeasty finish.

Tap @ Beer Temple, shared with Caesar, Benzai & Mr. Hangover. Golden color. White head. Aroma’s: sweet fruit, with caramel, malts retronasal (more triple-like). Flavor is light sweet, malty, light bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes moderate bitter. Decent triple, certainly by American standards.

Draft @ Beer Temple. Pours a clear golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is mostly fruity yeast, slightly oak and herbal. A bit strange and flavor is sweet and yeasty with bready notes. Just another mediocre tripel in my book, yeasty and sweet with an alcoholic touch in the end. Meh.

Draught @ Beer Temple. Clear orange golden color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, yeast, lightly bitter, the slightest hint of herbs or spices. Average body and carbonation. Meh.

12 fl.oz bottle. Pours slightly orange golden colour with a mid-sized off-white head. Aroma of strong, pale malt, dry fruits, grain and citrus. Taste of strong malt, pale fruits, hints of honey and spices, nothing special.

12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a ruby gold, crystal clear with a collar of white head. No lace. The aroma is strong trippel. Lots of malt and Belgian yeast. It's not good. I hate trippels. Funky and Belgian. Ugh. The flavor is awful. Belgian trippel syrup. Malts and yeast dominate. Lots of clove and gross. The mouth feel is thinner and syrupy but with a no carbonation and a lingeringly clove-filled finish. This is just not good. I dislike all of the trippels ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebone1988 (1925) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Not happy about it. Aroma is metallic, clove, banana, onion, dying. Appearance is dark straw, white head. Taste is banana, clove, sugar, a mess. Mouthfeel is abrasive, harsh carbonation and not good. Overall, not a fan of the style and this is a bad version of it.

StueyD (1583) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2015
A bright mid Amber coloured beer with a thick off white coloured head. A light fruity aroma, vinous and a touch vinegary, this then brings in a light vegetal aroma. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, a noticeable fruity bitterness, a vinegar sourness that brings in a slight, boiled cabbage flavour, different, but not unpleasant. There is a smoother, boozy yeasty taste towards the end that soothes the sour and bitter flavours in the finish. Bottle from Beers of Europe.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2015
355 mL bottle. Hazy orange-amber. Not much head. Strong aroma of ripe fruit and berries, but not sweet. The fruitiness is a little milder in the flavour, but there is an added earthiness. Finishes with a little booze. Lowish carbonation for the style. Interesting one.
