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 werent 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 brought back from MI. odd little thing. sort of tea-colored, dark for a triple, with some lacing following a thin tan head. lots of unexpected aromas here -- wet earth, leather, and, yes, asparagus being preeminent among them. interesting yeasty phenolics on the palate, and a smokiness Id liken to lapsang souchong -- definitely a tea-like character. not bad, but not your standard triple by any means.

Rask0lnikov (1091) - 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.

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. Its 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 (1423) - 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 .

AshtonMcCobb (6409) - 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.

Aragh (249) - POLAND - OCT 24, 2016
Kolor brudno pomarańczowy, blotny. Obwdka 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.
