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.

This starts with an aroma that doesn’t quite match the style. There’s some of the Belgian spice, with a stronger sweet aroma. Pours a cloudy dark amber, with almost no head. I’m not sure if I would say the flavor is traditional... there’s a bitterness in the finish that stands out. The spice is there to start with, but quickly fades. It’s interesting, not sure if I’m planning on getting it again.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 It’s nice, but also not really something I like. The yeasty malts are their of a typical tripell, but disappointingly they’re not complex or as pleasant as they could be.
