Notes/Commercial Description:
Inspired by nature's untamed beauty, LaGrave (pronounced \l?-gräv\) is the first of our 12.7-oz. corked and caged bottle releases. Bottle conditioned and highly carbonated, this Triple Golden Ale is steeped in the tradition of strong ales originally brewed in Belgium. The unique Belgian yeast forms the bedrock of LaGrave’s complex flavors. Strong and alluring at 8% ABV, LaGrave boasts a sweet, fruity flavor with a well-rounded mouthfeel and semi-dry, lingering bitter finish.

i like this beer a lot, it has a couple of cool things going for it. one is that its a cool sort of hybrid on the yeast front, with elements of the classic belgian strains and all their fruity intensity, and also saison yeast, more funky and spicy, and super super dry. the other thing is that seems to be a rather authentic take on the style, blonde and bubbly, grain and yeast driven, delicate for its size, all of that, but instead of being candy sugar sweet in the finish, its very very dry. the rapid fire carbonation helps that along too, but there isnt much sweetness left here in this tripel, a really nice feature. its also pretty light in body for what it is, and at 8% av instead of say 11% abv, i can easily have a few of them. well done by troegs here, this exceeded expectations.
