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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is hazy dark golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation along with lots of particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with notes of spices and hints of candi sugar and fruits, the latter of which becomes a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: Similar to the smell, the overall taste is rather complex and has strong flavors of musty yeast with hints of candi sugar and fruit. The finish has some spicy flavors as well as hints of alcohol. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat dry on the palate with a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: The high amount of carbonation in this beer really helps to "lighten" things up and cut through the base of this tripel. This is a good American version of the Belgian style.
